   receive Leadership Competency Evaluations (LCEs) and feedback to contribute to the

3. Methods
          a. All AS200 cadets who wish to compete for a Field Training enrollment
             allocation will be required to attend the FTP LLAB session from 1530-1700
             on Tuesdays.
          b. 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.
          c. 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.

          d. Each week FTP Staff and cadets will cover at least one 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.

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

          f. 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.

          g. 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. Execution.

      (1) The squadron commander will lead and direct the squadron to ensure the mission
      is accomplished. The squadron commander will email the next week’s approved
      OPORD to the OG/CC on Thursday so they are aware of what to expect in the
      coming LLAB. In conjunction with the Commandant of Cadets he/she will establish
      what will be covered during the semester and how the plans should be executed.
      (2) Flight commanders will train their cadets in a professional manner according to
      the T-700 training manual and prescribed ROE’s from the FTP/CC. Flight
      commanders will evaluate all of their cadets throughout the semester using the
      Leadership Competency Evaluations. They will constructively critique their cadets
      and provide feedback to improve the cadets performance.
      (3) Deputy Flight Commanders will assist in evaluating cadets as well as serve as an
      extra set of eyes while supervising training. Deputy Flight Commanders will be
      responsible for the attendance of the flight and reporting that information up the
      chain of command no more than 10 minutes after the conclusion of any event. The
      Deputy Flight Commander will act as the Flight Commander in the absence of the
      Flight Commander or if the Flight Commander is unable to perform their duties.
      (4) The Inspector General will observe Flight Commanders and other FTP staff
      during training sessions to ensure standardized implementation of training. The IG
      will also maintain a system to ensure proper implementation of standards outside of
      the FTP LLAB and normal LLAB environments.
(5) The Academic Officer is responsible for implementing the curriculum of warrior
knowledge as laid out by the FTP/CC. They will issue homework assignments at the
end of each session and be collected no more than one week later.
