On the weekend of 9-11 March 2018 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).

The Cadet Training and Education Program is made up of four different leadership schools designed to assist cadets as they progress through the cadet program. These courses give cadets both the knowledge and skills to lead cadets at their level of responsibility. To apply as an instructor you must have completed CCSC. To staff support, you must have completed the current school that you for which you are eligible.
The Training Leaders of Cadets course is the premiere venue for Cadet Program Officers to learn how to become better mentors to cadets and how to become effective managers of cadet/composite squadrons. The basic and intermediate course will be covered. All senior members need to have completed TLC prior to serving on staff.
