The Cadet Training and Education Program is made up of four different leadership schools designed to assist cadets as they progress through the cadet program. These courses give cadets both the knowledge and skills to lead cadets at their level of responsibility. 

The Training Leaders of Cadets course is the premiere venue for Cadet Program Officers to learn how to become better mentors to cadets and how to become effective managers of cadet/composite squadrons. The basic and intermediate course will be covered. All senior members need to have completed TLC prior to serving on staff.
