Advanced Pararescue Orientation Course:
APJOC is the second course in the PJOC program and is designed to build upon skills learned at PJOC and give cadets a more in-depth understanding of the Guardian Angel Weapon System (GA) of the United States Air Force. 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 perceived limits.
GA is organized into nine specific capabilities: Prepare, Mission Plan, Insert, Movement, Actions on Objective, Medically Treat, Extract, Reintegrate, and Adapt. For 10 training days APJOC pairs cadets with an active duty or reserve USAF Rescue or Special Tactics Squadron. For more details on GA please visit: Guardian Angel Factsheet , Guardian Angel Factsheet #2.
This duration of this activity is 12 days, 10 training days and two travel days.
