The first sub-problem was to determine what the current risk management program at 2nd Aviation consists of.
The second sub-problem was to validate and verify if all personnel had received risk management training.
The third sub-problem was to determine the effectiveness of the training. .
The first hypothesis was that all personnel on 2nd Aviation had received adequate Risk Management training.
The second hypothesis was that personnel were willing participants of the Risk Management process.

Importance of the Study.
Every organization, no matter how large or small, inherently possesses exposure to risk. A comprehensive risk management program requires a significant commitment of time and resources by the organization. The "costs- of this commitment can be fully mitigated however, by the direct results of the risk management program. However, no matter how much commitment an organization may have in implementing a comprehensive risk management program it does little good if the training and proper concepts are not being received and implemented by the personnel within the organization.
