Hello, just rejoined my old Idaho unit. Senior folks there speak well of this site as a place for news and help.

Welcome! CAPTalk can be a wealth of knowledge. Watch out for biters though. YMMV.

Hi All,

I'm a semi-recent addition to the Sioux Falls unit. I mainly joined because my daughter became a cadet, but as a lifelong airplane geek, it didn't take much convincing from our squadron commander to get me to join up as well.

So now I'm trying to navigate through the maze of learning Emergency Services, trying to not wear the wrong uniform at the wrong time, but also getting to have a lot of fun making new friends and spending bonding time with my daughter on SAREXs.

I'll try to remember to use the search button before asking any dumb questions.

Welcome aboard! Take the Big 4 FEMA courses just to get them out of the way (IS100,IS200,IS700,IS800), and get the comms training (Introductory Communications User Training (ICUT), on e-Services Learning Management System (LMS)) out of the way, and get the General Emergency Services (GES, also on LMS) out of the way, and that takes care of all of the online "pre-training" you'll likely need on the Emergency Services side. This will also go a long way towards completing the requirements for your Emergency Services badge and technician rating.

Thanks for the advice. I managed to knock out most of those pretty quick, but stalled out on the IS200 and IS800 ones. Hopefully now that summer is ending and things are starting to settle back into the school year rhythms I'll be able to get back and study those.
