COURSE: WMGT 101 Air Force Civil Engineer Basic CourseOBJECTIVE: For each student to comprehend the AF Civil Engineer structure, core competencies & processes. Students shall be able to apply installation & construction engineering principles in support of assigned missions. This course provides the foundation for further education & development. DESCRIPTION: Active Duty students are automatically selected and scheduled by AFPC within 1-6 months after arrival on station. The duration of the course is thirty-six (36) academic days. The first 3 weeks of the course provide officers and officer equivalent civilian personnel entering the Civil Engineer Career Field familiarization of the Air Force Civil Engineer organization, management systems, techniques, processes, and operations. Students will gain a basic understanding of the Civil Engineer organization to include doctrine, history, and related civil engineering functions. Students will also learn responsibilities of each flight within the objective squadron, how the Civil Engineer squadron and its flights interface with other organizations, and how to plan and execute various programs within the flights. The joint military/civilian portion will end with basic mechanical, electrical and civil engineering lessons required for activities both at home station and in a deployed environment. The contingency portion (military only) prepares civil engineer officers to provide and maintain expedient force beddown. Students will learn Air Force Civil Engineer responsibilities, assets, and team configurations, force beddown planning processes, expedient airfield criteria and pavement evaluation, infrastructure requirements, and contingency operations.
