Cadet Competition Course
This course is designed to prepare members for the upcoming Wing Cadet Competition event that will happen within the next 5 months. Emphasis will be on commands, movements, protocol and, of course, proper uniform wear. Manual of Arms instruction will also be included. Tentative arrangements have been made with the Fairchild AFB Honor Guard Team to provide technical instruction and tips for the perfect presentation. Squadrons with existing Color Guard teams should seriously consider attending this class, as should Squadrons who are just now forming teams. Teams with gear should bring it. This course is open to Cadets and Senior Member team advisors and coaches. Individuals are welcome and will be formed into teams so don't worry if your entire team can not attend. Come and learn from the Pros!
Cyber Security and AFA CyberPatriot
Instructors: WAWG Cyber Education Team composed of Cadets and Senior Members from local units.
During this WAMA week-end, cadet participants will be introduced to Cyber Security and to the AFA CyberPatriot program. Through hands-on exercises using VM Ware, we will explore the Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16 virtual images provided for the Practice Round by the AFA CyberPatriot.
In addition to being introduced to the AFA CyberPatriot competition program, Senior Member participants will have access to various educational resources to review for training in cyber education.
As we now live in a digital world, cyberspace defense has become an urgent national need. Our life at work and at school involves computers and smart devices, but our home life is also becoming part of the world wide web especially with the ever expanding use of IoT devices.
Not only do we need to protect our national cyberspace, we also need to protect our professional and personal digital environments. In parallel to the US Air Force expanding its missions from Air and Space, to Air, Space and Cyberspace, Civil Air Patrol has been expanding its missions to include cyber education, especially cyber security.
All participants are encouraged to bring a laptop (see https://www.uscyberpatriot.org/competition/technical-specifications for configuration and compatibility). If the laptop is not compatible, the participant will work with a partner, and the spare computer will be used for accessing training materials. Do not hesitate to ask your unit for borrowing a laptop for this training week-end.
