Combining her training in helicopter tactics with her KPA background, Eva has been given permission to launch a program with student pilots in basic training and with experienced pilots in emergency and tactic training, using TAGteach. “The program will start in February and I am really looking forward to it,” Eva shares. While Eva is compiling TAGteach lessons and videos to help the pilots, she plans to involve her students in the training plans, too. “I will let them prepare their training plans together, let them be part of the process of implementing something new in training.”
A “so-called workshop junkie,” Eva is constantly joining a workshop, conference, or seminar. She believes that “education should never end.” Eva has attended the last two ClickerExpo Luminos conferences in the United Kingdom.
Eva looks ahead to when “TAGteach becomes a regular part of military helicopter pilot training.” She is excited and hopeful about her soon-to-be-launched (March 2020) German Podcast about positive training. The podcast will be called Knackfrosch & Gummistiefel. “Knackfrosch is an old-fashioned German word for clicker, and Gummistiefel are rubber boots, symbolizing people who walk their dogs no matter the weather.”
Good luck, Eva, as you spread the success of positive reinforcement training across the world—and into the air!
