Students shall be able to apply engineering, installation support and bed-down planning principles in support of assigned missions. This course provides the foundation for further education and development. DESCRIPTION: Active Duty students are automatically selected and scheduled by AFPC for WMGT 101 attendance within 1-6 months after arrival on station. The duration of the course is forty-six (46) academic days. The first 3 weeks of the course provide officers and officer equivalent civilian personnel entering the Civil Engineer career field familiarization with the Air Force Civil Engineer organization, management systems, techniques, processes, and operations. Students gain a basic understanding of Air Force Civil Engineer doctrine, history, and related civil engineering functions. Students also learn the responsibilities of each flight within the objective CE squadron, how the CE squadron and its flights interface with other organizations, and how to plan and execute various programs within each of the flights. The combined military/civilian portion of the course also includes the basic mechanical, electrical and civil engineering technical knowledge needed to complete infrastructure activities at home station and in a deployed environment. The contingency portion of the course (military only) focuses on providing and maintaining force beddowns in a contingency or humanitarian environment.
