Camp Robert L. Boucher, Ephrata WA

Training this weekend will be offered in 6 areas: Airport Operations (open to all cadets and AEOs), Ground Team Winter Skills)(open to all members meeting the prerequisites), Mission Radio Operators' Training (open to all who meet the requirements), Cadet Officer Academy (open to all cadet officers and CDCs), Flight Line Marshalling for all who meet the prerequisites, and Corporate Learning Course for Senior Members meeting the criteria. Free time is available on Saturday evening to network, play games, or do homework.

Here are the details.

AE- Airport Operations and Tour to Moses Lake Airport - The tour will be part of the AE class on Airports. First thing Sat morning, we will transport to Moses Lake Airport and be met by the Airport Manager. After a briefing on the airport, members will be divided up to tour the Air Traffic Control Tower, the Fire Fighting Unit, and to take a driving tour of the runways and airport areas. Members will complete the TSA briefing that allows civilians and their vehicles to enter the airport grounds. It's all about the airport and how the parts of it function. The GT students and staff will also attend the tours. Saturday afternoon and Sunday class time will cover Weather.

ESSevere Weather Operations for Ground Teams - This class focuses on methods and techniques dealing with hostile winter weather. Following the classroom briefings, the students will spend an estimated two hours outdoors, rain or snow. Bring warm clothing, boots, hats, and gloves. Coats do not need to be CAP types; the goal is to stay warm not stylish. There will be demonstrations on vehicle preparation. Field Packs are optional, not required. Cadets will be allowed free time to attend the Aerospace Education class tour at Moses Lake airport.

– Mission Radio Operator class- Mission Radio Operators are key parts of any CAP mission, monitoring the safety of deployed teams and ensuring the rapid, accurate passage of information. It also leads to the Communication Unit Leader qualification - the only Team Leader position available to cadets under age 18. This course teaches the skills needed to be a successful MRO with a mixture of classroom instruction and practical exercises. Successful students will have all practical tasks signed off for the MRO Operations Qualification (online classes will need to be completed separately).

Pre-requisites: ICUT MUST be completed prior to arrival at WAMA (limited opportunities may be available for Practical Evaluations if unavailable at the unit), Commander's Approval for training must be entered into the online SQTR.

Required materials: writing implements, scratch paper, binder or folder to hold ~60 pages of documents & forms, and appropriate gear for the weather (we will be outside for 15-30 minutes at a time). A clipboard is extremely helpful but not required.

– Flight Line Marshalling class: POSTPONED!! We have to postpone this class until a later month. Please watch the schedule and we will enter it as soon as we can. This is an opportunity to acquire the skills for Cadets and Seniors to perform duties as a Flight Line Marshaller (FLM) in support of CAP aviation activities. The FLM training consists of classroom academics and practical exercises outdoors on the Ephrata flightline. Follow on training and exercise participation is required before becoming fully certified. Subsequent training will be made available at WAMA during the coming months. This is particularly needed for the Wing SAREVAL and for Arlington Air Fly In this summer.

Pre-requisites and requirements include:

  • GES – General Emergency Services rating

  • Bring a paper copy of your FLM SQTR with all three of the Unit Commander, or a designated representative, endorsements.

  • Note that SQTR is the Specialty Qualification Training Worksheet located in eServices Ops Qualifications section.

  • The endorsements are to include on the SQTR the following APPROVALS. They should also be logged in eServices.




  • Dress appropriately for outdoor activity to include good shoes, gloves, knit wool cap (black, blue, or orange), and a safety vest.

Recommend viewing the online CAP videos on ‘Wing Runner’ and ‘Aircraft Handling’.

If you have already completed ICUT, IC100, IS700, and/or First Aid, please list them in the SQTR.

It is important to register early, because class size will be limited.

Any questions that can not be handled at your unit level should be addressed to LtCol Moore at karl.moore@wawg.cap.gov.

CP – Cadet Officer's Academy - for all cadet officers and CDCs. It is great for all cadet officers from new cadet officers learning what they should be doing in this new role or experienced cadet officers mentoring the newer ones and sharing what worked and didn't work for them. Students will be expected to bring issues that they need help with and ideas that they would like to see implemented within WAWG. Come prepared to mentor and be mentored!

PD- The Corporate Learning Course (CLC) discusses the relationship the CAP squadron has with the next major echelon of command -- the wing. Specifically, CLC discusses how wing-level operations help to accomplish CAP's three missions of aerospace education, emergency services, and cadet programs. It describes the working relationships wing staff officers have with each other, and their level counterparts. Completion of the CLC will satisfy partial requirement for your Level III (Management).
