Vocational Or Technical Training

Joyce Said:

How hard are the technical aspects of TACP training?

We Answered:

Learning to be an Air Force TACP isn't any different than learning to be a proficient Forward Observer for artillery or being able to call in an air strike as a Marine Corps infantry commander.

How hard is it you ask? Given that you have noted there is a physical aspect to your training, probably under estimated, the fators associated to the technical side include ability to use triangularization to determine the physical location of a target (geometry and trig), plot that target accurately on a map,and using various types of radio gear to call in an air strike when approved by your supported unit commander. You will have to learn map and compass techiques so that you do not get lost and so that your coordinates are accurate with ZERO error. Land nav uses both map and compass plus state of the art GPS systems that depend on limited time life batteries. Laser designator applications are not bad. What is tough is using the designators without being detected by the enemy under battlefield conditions.

It will not be hard if you pay close attention to your instructors. Practice, practice, practice in your so-called off time. Learn and re-learn every piece of equipment that you are issued for your TACP duties. And be willing to admit mistakes in training and learn from them by never making that mistake again!

Lieutenant Colonel, US Marine Corps-Retired.

PS: What you do as an Air Force TACP every Marine lieutenant is trained to do also at The Basic School since each must be able to coordinated Close Air Support from any of the 4 military Services as well as coordinate artillery support on point targets without error.
