Civilian Acculturation Leadership Training Program announced

Edwards AFB Education and Training Office

Applications are currently being accepted for Civilian Acculturation Leadership Training Program.

Air Force civilians in the grades of GS-7 through GS-13 (and equivalents) who have 2 to 5 years continuous federal service (waivers permitted); have no prior military service; hold a bachelor’s degree (no waivers allowed) and have no prior Professional Military Education are eligible to apply.

This is an open and continuous call and applications will continue to be accepted until all classes are filled.

The goal of CALT is to introduce Air Force civilians to the Air Force culture and prepare them for future leadership, managerial and supervisory roles. The CALT Program is patterned after the Officer Training School curriculum, and provides a unique in-residence experience focused on Air Force culture, missions and the significant role leaders play in the Air Force’s overall success. The curriculum parallels the leadership modules taught at OTS and includes team-building exercises, some outdoor activities, simulation exercises, and time for personal health and wellness to help maintain a level of physical fitness. This is an intensive leadership development program and will entail outside reading and projects.

Program Dates: There are still openings in the offerings listed below. Nominees may select a primary and alternate date; however, final class date will be based on Air Force needs.

CALT 13-4 (Feb. 25 to March 8 2013)
CALT 13-5 (March 18 to 29)
CALT 13-6 (April 15 to 26)

Application Procedures:
