Squadron 3 is putting together a Ground Team Member 3 (GTM3) Familiarization and Preparatory Training day, where all of the GTM3 Fam & Prep tasks will be taught and evaluated. Getting these tasks signed off will make you a GTM3 trainee, allowing you to participate in future SAREXs and in real-world search and rescue missions. 

Training will be conducted at Whiteman Airport on August 6th from 0800 - 1630. A pizza lunch will be provided along with snacks throughout the day at a cost of $10 per participant. Cadets and seniors are both welcome and encouraged to attend!

This is an incredible opportunity to learn the basics of ground team operations in a relaxed environment while also preparing yourself for the advanced portion of ground team member training. 


  • General Emergency Services qualification must be completed prior to August 6th
  • Cadets must bring a completed CAPF 60-80
  • $10 cash or check made payable to Civil Air Patrol
