Fall CTEP 2021 - In Person

On the weekend of 8-10 October 2021 a Cadet Training and Education Program (CTEP) Leadership School and a Training Leaders of Cadets (TLC) will be held at Texas Wing Headquarters, Nacogdoches, Texas. CTEP is a Wing-level activity that promotes standardization and enrichment of training at the NCO level and professional cadet education for cadet officers that focuses on taking your place among the cadet leaders of our Wing.

TLC is a senior training activity that focuses on individuals that work with the cadet program. TLC students will receive credit for the Training Leaders of Cadets program (both basic and intermediate courses).

Cadets and Seniors planning to attend this school must submit a CAPF 60-81, 160, 161, and 163 to Chaplain Nancy Smalley and pay via the
EventBrite link no later than 17 September 2021. Cadets and Squadron Commanders are strongly urged to go to the cadet programs website CTEP Page to review the CTEP progression plan.

Applications for the Schools will only be accepted if the application is complete and signed by the commander as well as payment submitted. We have a limited number of spaces this year and will hold the schools to the limits set in the Ops Plan.

Cadets wishing to go to NCOA must be C/SSgt or above.
Cadets wishing to go to SNCOA must be C/MSgt or above.
Cadets wishing to go to OTS must be C/2d Lt.
Cadets wishing to go to CCSC must be C/Maj or above (or must be C/Capt with OTS credit).

If you are seeking RCLS credit for attending the CCSC class, you must have attended an IN PERSON OTS to receive credit. The reason for this is because the virtual CTEP classes did not meet the required hours that RCLS credit requires. 

CAPF 60-81, 160, 161, and 163 should be submitted to Chaplain Nancy Smalley no later than 17 September 2021.

The following information must be included on the CAPF 60-81:

Seniors may apply for STAFF or TLC (Training Leaders of Cadets)
A parents' or legal guardians' signature must be included on all forms.
Squadron commanders should verify the school the cadet is asking to attend as well.
Be sure to include your CURRENT CAP grade (not the grade you think you will be in two months),

You must mail your CAPF 60-81, 160, 161, and 163 to Chaplain Nancy Smalley at the address below:

416 Victorian Drive, Waxahachie, Texas 75165.

Please do not send via a form of delivery that requires a signature. Also, if you are worried that your paperwork will arrive late, contact us via email texasctep@gmail.com.

Your payment is what holds your place for the CTEP.
