​On the weekend of 6-8 October 2017 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 31, 160, 161, and 163 to Chaplain Nancy Smalley through the mail and you must pay via the Event Brite link NLT 15 September 2017. Cadets and Squadron Commanders are strongly urged to go to the cadet programs website to review the CTEP progression plan.
