NCWG Ranger Training Weekend
Date: October 26-28, 2012
I would like to invite you to the 2012 Ranger Training Weekend at Medoc Mountain State Park in Hollister, NC. This years school will run from 26 -28 October 2012. We are looking for students and staff members to help make this an outstanding school. This year we will offer three training tracks:
Basic Course “Bravo and Charlie Squadrons(Cadets) and Sierra Squadron(Seniors)"
Students will be instructed in: woodsmanship skills, search techniques & operations, crash site procedures, navigation & map reading, equipment, team mobility, and survival skills. Other classes include field leadership, casualty evacuation, and basic rope systems. Students will progress through the GTM3, Ranger 3rd and start on 2nd Class levels as team members.
Advanced Course “Alpha Squadron”
Students returning for the second year of training will receive instruction in rescue techniques, land search theory, air to ground coordination, advanced navigation, latitude and longitude determination, casualty evacuation, more extensive survival skills, and SAR team training. Leadership skills will be developed so students can build Ranger Teams in their home units. The students will train through the Ranger 1st Class level. The prerequisite for this course is: completion of NCWG Ranger Training Weekend or HMRS Summer School (preferred); Ranger 3rd Class& GTM2/t.
Special Advanced Course “Echo Squadron”
The prerequisite for this course is the Ranger Team Commander Course or at least a Ranger 1st Class. This course exposes cadet and senior (officer) Rangers to the Advanced and Expert Ranger level of search & rescue, woodsmanship and survival. Most subjects are tailored to the student’s needs and taught on a one-on-one basis by expert instructors. This course requires participants to possess a high degree of motivation and strong self-confidence with no physical limitations.
Details about these courses are included in the attached information packet. If you are interested in attending RSVP to the email and submit your required paperwork and a check for $30 payable to NC Wing CAP. If you are interested in staff please let me know that as well and what you would like to do.
