1. INTRODUCTION

       The following document will describe the purpose of Field Training and the FTP
program, as well as the goals we wish to meet and methods we intend to use. This document will
also define the objectives of Det 842’s FTP program and how these objectives will be
incorporated into the spring semester through LLAB training sessions and extra sessions. The
document also contains other information relevant to the program such as the FTP Rules of
Engagement (ROEs), the expected FTP volunteer staff roster and org chart. Attached to this
document are two memos addressed to AS200s briefly explaining the FTP program.

2. PURPOSE:

        a. Field Training is designed to evaluate military leadership and discipline, determine
cadets’ potential for entry into the professional officer corps, and stratify them among their peers.
For this reason, it is imperative that cadets arrive at Field Training knowing how to
systematically solve problems. The focus of the FTP program will be on the evaluation process.
FTP SQ/Cadets will receive several opportunities to lead. They will receive Leadership
Competency Evaluations (LCEs) and feedback to contribute to the growth and development of
their problem solving strategies.

       b. Group Leadership Problems (GLPs) are designed to provide cadets with problem
solving experience. Problem solving skills are the second most important only to being able to
work in a group. Other factors such as situational awareness and attention to detail positively
influence cadets’ problem solving abilities. These aspects will be implemented through D&C,
dormitory maintenance and classroom lessons on the OODA loop.

3. METHODS:

       a. The FTP Staff will provide sufficient training to prepare AS200 cadets for Field
Training this summer. The training will be based on the FTP objectives listed in the Spring 2011
FTP packet. All trainers will abide by the T-700.

        b. All AS200s will be members of the wing’s Second Operations Squadron. This setup
will provide more leadership opportunities for the FTP cadets. They will have more
responsibilities fulfilling wing requirements with the guidance of the FTP staff. They will work
closely with one another and therefore progress through the levels of team development.

       c. Each week FTP Staff and cadets will cover at least 1 key topic during FTP sessions.
During these sessions Cadets will receive introductory training to important Field Training
concepts. Throughout the semester there will be voluntary extra FTP sessions designed to
provide more in depth training for certain topics.

        d. After each FTP session, FTP cadets will be assigned homework over select areas of the
Field Training Manual and Airman’s Manual; the Cadet Academics Officer will be responsible
for these assignments. The Cadet Drill and Ceremonies Officer will also assign sections from


                                                                                                   3
the Drill and Ceremonies manual.

       e. Extra drill sessions will be held on Wednesdays at 0600 at the convocation center. The
Squadron D&C Officer will work with the WG/D&C Officer to coordinate what will be covered
during each session.

       f. Extra PT sessions will be held on TBD at the Recreation center. These sessions will
not be mandatory, but are highly encouraged. FTP cadets will constantly be reminded of the
importance of arriving at FT in the best physical shape possible.

4. COMMUNICATION

         a. The first rotation SQ/CC will be required to organize an FTP listserv for their class to
ensure information is being circulated throughout the squadron. Additionally, I will also be on
the listserv to ensure information is being disseminated appropriately.

       b. The FTP staff will have weekly meetings. During these meetings, we will evaluate the
performance of the Squadron as well as discuss upcoming plans and FTP events.

      c. The Ops Group Commander will receive weekly updates on the progress of the FTP
Squadron and FTP operations. The Ops Group Commander will relay this information to the
Wing/CC and Det 842/COC and in return attain necessary feedback for the FTP staff.

                              ROEs and Expectations

1. All Field Training Preparation Cadets will:

       a. Greet Cadre with name and rank, and Wing Staff and FTP Staff by name, as well as
       the proper greeting of the day. When in uniform and outdoors, cadets will also render a
       salute; if indoors, cadets will come to the position of attention, brace the wall and render a
       verbal greeting. When not in uniform, cadets will only render a verbal greeting.

       b. Be responsible for knowing quotes verbatim. These quotes will be included in weekly
       FTP homework.

       d. Have a Field Training Manual (FTM), Airman’s Manual (AFMAN 10-100), a form of
       identification, a copy of the weeks Operations Orders, and FTP notebook on their person
       at all times.



                                                                                                   6
       e. Have one water bottle on their person at all LLABs, FTP sessions, and wing Physical
       Training (PT) sessions.

       f. Arrive at LLAB at 1525, sit at the position of attention and read FTM or AFMAN 10-
       100.make good use fo time*

       g. Attend as many voluntary FTP Sessions, FTP PT sessions, and extra drill sessions as
       possible. Attendance is not mandatory; however, it is highly encouraged. Cadets who
       attend weekly FTP sessions historically experience much greater success at Field
       Training.

       h. Always be on time.

       i. Always come prepared. Do your homework and come ready to ask questions and
       actively participate.

       i. Always meet suspenses.

       j. Maintain professionalism.

       k. Be motivated, work together, and help one another. Teamwork is a necessity. Cadets
       will not succeed at Field Training (FT) as individuals. Always remember a flight is only
       as strong as its weakest link.

       l. Give maximum effort. To reach maximum level of success at FT, it is imperative that
       cadets do their best. The FTP Staff will ensure cadets receive adequate training to achieve
       their goals, but again, it is important cadets build upon the foundation set for them.


FTP Llab Plan for SPRING 2010
The FTP LLAB Plan consists of FTP objectives to be covered during LLAB and the FTP
sessions. The objectives have been broken down into whether they will be covered in LLAB or
in the FTP sessions.

In addition to the normal course of business, during LLAB three cadets at random, one from each
flight, will be selected for uniform inspection and to test their warrior knowledge.

MEMORANDUM FOR FTP/SQ CADETS

FROM: 2OS/CC

SUBJECT: Spring 2011 Field Training Preparation Overview

1. Field Training (FT) is a pivotal training program that all AFROTC cadets must successfully
complete in order to become members of the Professional Officer Course (POC). Cadets
enrolled in the AS200 class will attend FT during the summer, typically after their sophomore
year. This rigorous training program is designed to evaluate your leadership capabilities and
potential as a future officer in the United States Air Force. FT is an opportunity for you to
develop and strengthen your leadership skills. You will be challenged physically and mentally.
It is our job here at Detachment 842 to provide you with sufficient and proper training to help
prepare you for FT.

2. AS200 cadets are enrolled in Det 842’s Field Training Preparation program (FTP), which is
designed to prepare cadets for success at FT. You will receive leadership opportunities and
feedback to help improve your skills. Additionally, you will receive instruction in Drill &
Ceremonies, military customs and courtesies, proper uniform wear and general knowledge of the
Air Force. The FTP program is intended to provide the groundwork for your success at FT.
However, it is up to each individual cadet to constantly build upon what he or she learns during
the weekly FTP sessions.

FROM: 2OS/CC

SUBJECT: FTP Rules of Engagement and Expectations

1. All Field Training Preparation Cadets will:

a. Greet Cadre with name and rank, and Wing Staff and FTP Staff by name, as well as the
proper greeting of the day. When in uniform and outdoors, cadets will also render a salute; if
indoors, cadets will come to the position of attention, brace the wall and render a verbal greeting.
Cadets will only brace the wall if in the detachment hallway on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When
not in uniform, cadets will only render a verbal greeting.

       b. Be responsible for knowing quotes verbatim. These quotes will be included in weekly
       FTP homework.

       c. Have a Field Training Manual (FTM), Airman’s Manual (AFMAN 10-100), a form of
       identification, a copy of the weeks Operations Orders, and FTP notebook on their person
       at all times.

       d. Have one water bottle on their person at all LLAB, FTP sessions, and wing Physical
       Training (PT) sessions.

       e. Arrive at LLAB at 1525, sit at the position of attention and read FTM or AFMAN 10-
       100.

       g. Attend as many voluntary FTP Sessions, early morning FTP PT sessions, and extra
       drill sessions as possible. Attendance is not mandatory; however, it is highly encouraged.
       Cadets who attend weekly FTP sessions historically experience much greater success at
       Field Training.

       h. Always be on time.

       i. Always come prepared. Do your homework and come ready to ask questions and
       interact.

       j. Always meet suspense dates.

       j. Maintain professionalism.

       k. Be motivated, work together, and help one another. Teamwork is a necessity. Cadets



                                                                                                 25
       will not succeed at Field Training (FT) as an individual. They should always remember
       their Flight is only as strong as its weakest link.

       l. Give maximum effort. To reach maximum level of success at FT, it is imperative
       cadets constantly strive to do their best. The FTP Staff will ensure cadets receive
       adequate training to achieve their goals, but again, it is important cadets build upon the
       foundation set for them.

2. If you have any questions, please contact a member of the FTP staff for clarification. Only
cadets who are part of the FTP staff or Cadre are considered fully informed of the proper
protocol. If a non-FTP staff cadet attempts to correct you, please direct them to the FTP SQ/CC.
