Those who are wondering if they have what it takes to join the U.S. Air Force can see if their skills are up to par with the U.S. Air Force E.C.H.O. (Enhanced Cognitive Human Ops.) program. The interactive gaming experience challenges players to use the cognitive skills that are in practice every day, such as focus, composure and reaction. As Air Force Recruiting Service national events chief Major Jason Wyche describes, “While the Air Force has the most advanced technology in the world, an Airman’s cognitive skills are still the key to effectively employing that technology.”
The gaming experience kicks off with an explanation of what it takes to be in the program, plus tasks like Track & React, a challenge that tests for accuracy and more.
