Training Leaders of Cadets

Texas Wing Cadet Programs

‚ÄčTexas Wing will be hosting a TLC Basic and Intermediate during the Fall CTEP from_______________. Please find information about this activity on the Fall CTEP Page.

Groups will be hosting TLC's throughout the year and will be posted here as well on Wing calendar.

Training Leaders of Cadets is the premier venue for Cadet Programs Officers to learn how to become better mentors of cadets and more effective managers of cadet squadrons. This is part one of a 3-course program and is a component of the Cadet Programs Officer Specialty Track.
