Cadets enrolled in the POC attend class three hours a week and participate in a weekly two-hour leadership laboratory. POC classes are small. Emphasis is on group discussions and cadet presentations. Classroom topics include leadership and management, communication skills, and national defense policy.
In the Professional Officer Course, cadets apply what they have learned in the General Military Course and at the Field Training Units. Using your developing leadership skills, you now conduct the leadership laboratories teaching the new GMC and manage the detachments cadet corps.
Each detachment has a cadet corps based on the Air Force organizational pattern of flight, squadron, group and wing.
