Commander approval will be required once members submit their registration. Please ensure that your commander is aware of your intent to join so they may approve it in an expedient manner.

To provide you with the training to become a GTM-3 trainee, we will be holding GTM-3 Familiarization & Preparation (Fam&Prep) training:
WHEN: Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 0900 - 1700
WHERE: Palo Alto Airport. Meet at West Valley Flying Club, 1901 Embarcadero Rd Ste 100, Palo Alto, CA 94303
The prerequisite for this Fam&Prep training is:
1) General Emergency Services (GES) rating (CAPT116 test along with Curry for Cadets and Level 1 for Seniors), and
2) A complete 24-hour pack containing all 38 items required in O-0001 of the Ground and Urban Direction Finding Team Task Guide provided here: https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/Ground_Team__UDF_Task_Guide__24_May_CD5DA29E1340B.pdf. You must have all of your own equipment, no sharing allowed.
During the December 9, 2023 Fam & Prep, we will be covering the 11 GTM-3 Fam & Prep SQTR tasks:
O-0001 Prepare Ground Team Individual Equipment (complete ABU uniform or CAP blue field uniform & 24-hour pack)
O-0002 Conduct individual refit
O-0003 Prevent and treat hot weather injuries
O-0004 Prevent and treat cold weather injuries
O-0101 Identify natural hazards
O-0102 Prevent and treat fatigue
O-0103 Conduct field sanitation and hygiene
O-0201 Use a compass
O-0601 Conduct actions if lost
O-0902 Exercise universal precautions
P-0102 Conduct a phone alert
These tasks and evaluation guidelines are located in the Ground & Urban Direction Finding Team Task guide dated 24 May 2004 located at: https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/Ground_Team__UDF_Task_Guide__24_May_CD5DA29E1340B.pdf
The most extensive task is obtaining all the items in the 24-hour pack to complete O-0001 as listed in the guideline above. If you are a backpacker, you probably have most of the items. If not, it would require an investment. You would need all these items by December 9.
