Upcoming TLC Classes

Training Leaders of Cadets (TLC) Classes are the premier venue for Cadet Programs Officers to learn how to become better mentors of cadets and more effective managers of cadet squadrons. The Basic and Intermediate classes are a component of the Cadet Programs Officer Specialty Track. To foster collegial discussions among adult volunteers, cadets are prohibited from attending.

Topics include:

  • Putting excitement into squadron meetings
  • Getting cadets off to a Great Start
  • Developing partnerships with parents
  • Mentoring cadets to develop their potential
  • Providing each cadet with a tailor-made challenge

STUDENT PREPARATION: Before attending any TLC-Basic classes (and to be sure to get credit), please invest about 45 minutes by completing the online modules in eServices > Online Learning > Axis > Training Leaders of Cadets—Basic

PLEASE NOTE: Graduation from TLC-Basic is required for the Cadet Programs Technician Rating & the Command Technician Rating. It also helps your unit earn the QCUA. Graduation from TLC-Intermediate is required for the Cadet Programs Senior Rating.  


No TLC Course currently Scheduled for CY23


Other opportunities will be listed here as we hear about them...

Want to offer a class yourself?

If you have graduated from a TLC class, you are eligible to teach or help coordinate a class at that level.  In fact, helping teach any class is a requirement for the  Level 3 (Captain-level) and will greatly benefit the wing.  You may teach a class in person, virtually, or as a hybrid class.  For more information on teaching a class, to find the curriculum, and for tips & tricks, go here: https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/programs/cadets/cpofficer/tlc

In Oregon Wing, please coordinate with Capt Justin Baugh (justin.baugh@orwgcap.org), Director of Cadet Programs
