I found another thread here addressing this, however it's about 3 years old and likely a closed thread as I could not reply. That said, I am looking for more info on the CAPRAP program for my next move and am having a hard time getting ahold of anyone via the numbers and email addresses found in the flyers/advertisements.  Would anyone here have any good POC's for this?

I am currently an AF Reservist with Active Duty experience prior to that. I've got a few Comm/Cyber career fields, was a First Sergeant in 3 different squadrons, and currently serve as a Flight Chief in my current unit, but ready to try something new.

Any help is appreciated.

As Eclipse said...you're confusing the badge with the rating. If you complete the requirements of the Technician Rating, minus the senior-specific stuff (things cadets literally cannot do), then you can wear the Tech badge. But you will not hold the rating until you become a senior member.

For the Technician Rating, that's basically anything except for serving in a senior member duty position (the 6-month staff service requirement).

They cannot be the Prtimary or Assistant for a squadron for any staff role
For that you could possibly make them a Cadet comms officer/NCO.

That does not count in a technical sense. When referring to "unit xxxxxx officer," they mean senior member.

Cadets cannot complete Level I of the Senior Program, they cannot be the Primary or Assistant for a squadron
for any staff role, and they can't be issued comm equipment (I don't think).

Cadets can complete most of the requirements and earn the badge, but they do not earn the rating.

That refers to Level 1 which cadets cannot do.

What? Cadets can do all 3 levels of the Comms specialty track and there's no way that's about another specialty track because CAPR 100-1 is all about comms.

CAPR 100-1 says:
Quote
Cadets are encouraged to pursue each level of the communicator badges. To do so, cadets must meet all the training requirements listed in the appropriate section of CAPP 214 with the exception of the portions specifically intended for the senior member training program.

What of the following do you consider to be "specifically intended for the senior member training program":
  • Pass the Technician level Communications Officer test.
  • Complete ICUT
  • Demonstrate radiotelephone procedures, message format, distress and emergency communications, and communications safety.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of radio station types, call signs, functional designators, and authorization procedures to OJT Supervisor
  • Be familiar with the publications listed on page 6
  • Attend a minimum of one group, wing or region sanctioned communications meeting, Conducted IAW CAPR 100-1.
  • Participate in one mission (8 hours minimum) in any communications capacity or participate in one communication exercise sanctioned by the Wing Director of Communications.
  • Complete NIMS courses IS 100, 200, 700, and 800.
  • Serve with 6 months experience as a unit/assistant unit communications officer.
I swear to god if you say the Technician Level Test is one of them, I'm gonna smash my head through a wall because I took the test last night at midnight and couldn't sleep because I had a headache until 3am.  :)

Gotta love SER!
I had to tell a whole unit once that a UCC is not an SOM, and they all need to remove it.
Oof. Worst I have was a SSgt wearing an Encampment ribbon and NCSA ribbon for going to encampment

Best / easiest would be just ask one of them or the CC.  It's not tracked by eServices,
though it can be entered as a historical award for individual members.

SER tends to hand them out like candy to whole wings at a time.

Be prepared if you ask to find inappropriate wear.  I had to tell a whole unit once that
a UCC is not an SOM, and they all need to remove it.

That was fun.

Done properly there should be a PA with the period and members awarded.
I know there should've been a PA, but I don't remember ever really hearing about it, I just know some cadets in our squadron wear the ribbon and we have the streamer on our guidon.
