The Multifunction Airman Training consisted of a three day, in-depth scenario based around obstacles that these Airmen could face during their deployments against adversaries. They were able to run through each problem, work through the solution then collaborate with each other on ways to improve.

Throughout MFAT, Airmen from both the 386th AEW EOD and 386th ESFS worked together on a Red versus Blue teaming concept constructed by members of the local EOD staff. They were able to reinforce the skills necessary to deploy to any environment, at any time, and with the expectation of supporting US or Coalition general or Special Forces requiring an EOD capability.

Being able to train and learn how Airmen can defend and improve the installations security was a driving point towards the Multifunction Airman Training exercise. Each Airmen that participated was provided a 48 hour window of scenarios that filled unconventional warfare situations that they may witness at any given time. Integrating and learning gave each participant and leadership a perspective on how to better the mission and each other.
