The Omaha Composite squadron hosted a Unit Training Mission for its cadet members during the second weekend in May. Cadets were trained in basic compass and distance navigation, building shelters, and caring for injuries in the field. The cadets learned to work as a team and were led in training by Cadet Commander, C/Capt. Austin Henry and Cadet Deputy Commander, C/Capt. Matthew Norrie.
Basic CAP ORM (Organizational Risk Management) practices were in effect at all times, and cadets were allowed to put their training into practice by taking charge of several scenarios after being provided with simple, basic instructions to achieve a predetermined goal.
The skills learned during the UTM will be used to help the cadets advance towards their Ground Team Member Ratings and eventually, achieve the rating of Ground Team Leaders, which provide real world expertise during CAP Search and Rescue Missions.
