TLC credentials expire every 48 months...if you took a TLC course in 2020 or earlier, there is a good chance that yours has expired. To help your unit maintain regulatory compliance and further your understanding of the Cadet Program, please consider joining us for some great class sessions and lots of constructive interactive dialog about the Cadet Program. If you are new to supporting the Cadet Program at your squadron here are the key objectives for the Basic course:

Learning Goals: 

  1. Articulate the Cadet Programs vision, to include referencing the key traits of cadet life, the program elements and the outcomes each produces, and an explanation of the promotion process.

  2. Explain the roles and responsibilities of cadet programs officers serving at the squadron level, with special regard to leadership dynamics, as the adult’s role changes when the cadet staff’s readiness changes.

  3. Describe operating principles for squadron-level cadet programs, including Cadet Great Start, weekly meetings and activities, and using the Quality Cadet Unit Award as a self-assessment and managerial tool.

If you have already completed the Basic course, join us on Sunday for the Intermediate course with a focus on these key objectives:

      Learning Goals:  

  1. Discuss how local leaders might serve cadets with special needs. 

  2. Describe methods for positive, indirect leadership.

  3. Describe major national and wing activity programs. 

If you are Senior or Master rated in Cadet Programs and would like to be considered as a course instructor, please watch for and respond to the Call for Instructors email coming out soon or email me directly.

Mark your calendars for June 8 and/or 9 and join other squadron Cadet Program Officers from all across Group 2 for one or both of these TLC sessions. Class size will be limited to 20 students in each course and we will accept participant registration via email starting May 11th. More details will follow, watch for the registration email.
