PAO Bootcamp

Michigan Wing will be hosting an online PAO bootcamp starting this Sunday January 17th.

The bootcamp will run for 6 months with a once monthly lecture session on Sunday nights. Twice monthly the students will meet with a mentor one on one virtually to review tasks and homework assignments.

The goal of this bootcamp is to take a new PAO who knows nothing about CAP or public affairs and get them through their tech rating in 6 months while equipping them with the skills they need to run their units program effectively.

Members can sign up for the training at https://robertbowdenphoto.wufoo.com/forms/pao-bootcamp/ 

We do request that members signing up for this training commit to the full 6 month program. Level 1 is required for this class.
