Leadership Phase-Out & Spaatz Award Exam

Posted on August 20, 2013 at 12:00 AM by Curt LaFond

By now everyone in the cadet community should know that after a three-year phase-out, the Leadership for the 21st Century textbook becomes obsolete on 1 October 2013.  From that date forward, only the Learn to Lead textbook will be in use in the CAP Cadet Program.


However, in the interest of fairness, Maj Gen Carr has decided to modify the phase-out for the cadets who are in the process of attempting the Spaatz Award exam.


Cadets who become eligible to attempt the Spaatz Award exam and receive their wing commander’s approval to test by 30 September 2013 may test under the Leadership for the 21st Century curriculum through 30 September 2014, following the normal Spaatz procedures.


Cadets who gain wing commander approval to make their first attempt at the Spaatz after 30 September 2013 must pass the Learn to Lead edition of the exam. No exceptions will be granted.


Wing DCPs are asked to help spread the word to affected cadets and your test proctors. Thank you and study hard, cadets!
