All CTEP attendees need to fill out the CTEP Attestation Form and the CTEP Plan of Return and bring these documents with you to CTEP to sign in. Please pay close attention to the options on the attestation form. 

Please be advised that in order to attend the Spring 2022 Cadet Training and Education Program (CTEP) March 18-20, 2022 you must complete one of the following measures to be in alignment with the Texas Wing, Civil Air Patrol COVID safety plan. 

All members are required to have completed one of the actions below:

Completed a COVID 19 vaccine series:  Personnel who have completed the vaccination series meet this standard.  “Completed” is defined as having received both doses of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, or the single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, 14 days prior to arrival at this event.

Receive a Negative COVID 19 test within three days of attendance: Members who cannot quarantine or who have not been vaccinated are required to be tested through PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) or a diagnostic Antigen Test, such as those preformed at CVS or Walgreens.  Please Note the Binax NOW® Home Test CANNOT be used as proof of testing as it is not intended to rule out positive or negative results. 
Personnel who plan on being tested should schedule their test NOW for the Wednesday or Thursday leading up to the event, as it generally takes 24 hours to return results. Do not wait to schedule this test the week of CTEP.    

Quarantine for 14 days prior to this event: Members who have not been vaccinated, or who are unable to obtain a COVID test may choose to quarantine for 14 days prior to this event.  “Quarantine” is defined as isolation of movement, i.e., remaining home with limited external person to person contact.  Members who attend public schools or are part of home school collectives, sports, church or other religious places of worship, etc. that meet in person CANNOT meet this requirement. Additionally, members who are quarantining CANNOT attend any CAP Activity in the 14 days prior to this event.

It is the intent of Civil Air Patrol to provide a safe learning environment for all its members.  Members are expected to adhere to all stipulated COVID mitigations, including the wear of a mask indoors and in large groups.  Members who are unable to wear masks should NOT attend this course due to the increased risk of COVID. 

Please make arrangements to ensure that you have met one of the above criteria.  Members who cannot, or have not, met one of the above actions, will not be able to attend the CTEP or TLC.

CTEP planning is continuing. We have submitted our COVID-19 Mitigation Plan to national headquarters for approval. As soon as it is approved, it will be posted in the Important Information section on the right for everyone to view. It will be important that everyone follows the requirements set out in the plan if attending the Spring 2022 CTEP. 

On the weekend of 18-20 March 2022 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).
