"2.4.2.3. The TLC Refresher is a brief web-based course for graduates who desire to refresh their
training and review any enhancements made to the Cadet Program during the previous 4 years."

Does anyone know where to find this? I've looked in LMS and AXIS.

Disregard, I misread.

The TLC refresher doesn't exist yet.

Like many "Will be coming soon" items, this item has yet to come, and soon has yet to arrive.

You'll need to do the refresher in the TLC class to say "current."

Considering the actual courses haven't been updated yet I don't know if the refresher will ever come online.

I always just add/update the info in my TLC courses myself.  If it's a one-day course required every 4 years, I don't think a web-based refresher is even worth the effort to create and maintain.  Just do the in-person (or remote) version once per Presidential term to stay current.

I think it would be more beneficial to make an online recurrent an annual or biennial course. I'd like to see it a bit more frequently than every 4 years.

But, if you really want to "stay current," consider being an instructor at a TLC.

Let's hope it gets rolled into VOLU so it the course content can be refreshed as needed quickly and courses can be run in-person or online steadily.

According to the chief of E&T TLC won't be rolled into the new program but will remain under the ownership of CP.

Maxwell, AL, where silos go to die.



PHall

More likely CP wants to keep control so they can make changes and update on their schedule and not rely on someone else to do it when they get around to it.

Eclipse

Yes, that would be the very definition of a silo in this context, and not
how you run an large organizaiton that has cross-functional training needs.

FWIW, TLC also does not require Volunteer University trained and approved instructors.

Should we start the clock on how long that idea lasts, too?

(And for the record I support it.)

Seems to generally work well with all that ES and pilot stuff. (shrugs)

Yep, once every other Presidential administration, whether it needs it or not.

Considering the dynamics of the Cadet Program, and how training methodology changes, not to forget that culture changes rapidly and how we interact with cadets evolves in order to keep their attention and work with them through common adolescent issues of the era...it's not a bad idea to want to be able to move with greater flexibility.
