Event description

Description


Welcome to the new and improved Unit Commanders Course! UCC is Civil Air Patrol's (CAP) primary course for new and aspiring squadron commanders (as well as group commanders and those seeking command positions in the future). It is designed to ease the transition from serving on squadron staff to becoming the commander, leader and link to higher headquarters (HHQ).

The objective of the UCC is to build a cadre of well-trained officers who are prepared to lead and manage at the squadron level. Graduates will be able to weave the management responsibilities of command with the leadership skills necessary to build and encourage their team of dedicated members from all walks of life and of all ages to accomplish CAP's mission and squadron objectives.

The new Unit Commanders Course consists of 22 lessons divided into four main blocks:

  • Getting Started
  • Commander's Toolbox
  • Compliance
  • Squadron Leadership

For this reason, students must prepare ahead of time by reading the lessons and completing the end-of-block quizzes located on the Learning Management System (LMS).

The in-residence format requires the student to read the materials and take the block quizzes online before attending the 2-day course.

HOW TO APPLY:

To apply for this course complete register here in Eventbrite and then supply the course director with a completed CAP Form 17, Application for Senior Member Activities. Wing Commander approval is required prior to registration for members of Wings outside of Connecticut.

The senior member must have completed Level II (wing commanders may waive this requirement on a case-by case basis).
