Advanced Training Squadron

What is ATS?

Tri-Wing Encampment’s Advanced Training Squadron (ATS) is a program designed to develop fundamental leadership competencies with a specialized curriculum that aims to prepare students for future success in the cadet program. In this new program, students will have the opportunity to experience encampment activities in addition to unique leadership related experiences. Cadets interested in attending ATS will be taught essential leadership skills including but not limited to; advanced drill and uniform functions, future staff application procedures, basic leadership theory, practical leadership techniques, and effective teamwork. Upon completion of encampment, students should have the necessary skills to perform in entry level staff positions and return to their home squadron able to lead a team to success. It is important to note that the Advanced Training Squadron is designed for cadet airmen and NCOs who have previously completed their student encampment. First-year cadets, and cadet officers will NOT be admitted, as this curriculum does not replace the current Encampment or Cadet Officer School/RCLS curriculums. Cadets interested in applying are required to provide a letter of intent, an example can be found here, which should be submitted to the Tri-Wing Personnel email and fill out the ATS application found on the website. Space is limited and all applications will be considered after the due date 25 March. Candidates will hear about acceptance by mid-April. Any questions can be directed to Tri-Wing Personnel.

A program designed to turn followers into leaders and give them skills that prepare them for future leadership opportunities.
