Mission. To introduce newly hired, non-prior Air Force civilian employees to the Air Force culture and way of life and prepare them for future leadership, managerial and supervisory roles.
The goal of Civilian Acculturation and Leadership Training (CALT) Curriculum is to introduce Air Force civilians to the Air Force culture and prepare them for future leadership, managerial and supervisory roles. The CALT Program is patterned after the Officer Training School (OTS) curriculum. It provides a unique in-residence experience focused on AF culture, missions and the significant role leaders play in the Air Force’s overall success. The curriculum parallels the leadership modules taught at OTS and includes team-building exercises, some outdoor activities, simulation exercises, and time for personal health and wellness to help maintain a level of physical fitness. This is an intensive leadership development program and will entail outside reading and projects.
