APJOC is the second course in the PJOC program and is designed to build upon skills learned at PJOC and orient cadets to the Pararescue, Survival, and Combat Rescue Officer Career fields.
APJOC pairs cadets with an active duty or reserve USAF Rescue or Special Tactics Squadron. The APJOC curriculum goes far beyond that of PJOC by introducing the student to Pararescue/Special Tactics Team Operations, Technical Rescue, Medical, Survival, Team Building, and Rigorous Physical Conditioning. The course is designed to demonstrate to CAP cadets that one can progress far beyond percieved limits."
