    posted Aug 21, 2012, 8:55 AM by Mark Woods   [ updated Aug 21, 2012, 9:00 AM ]
    Introductory Communications User Training (ICUT) has been released!  It can be accessed through the Learning Management System link on the left side of eServices.
     
    Per the changes in CAPR 100-1, BCUT and ACUT classes are no longer to be taught.  As of today, 20AUG12, all user training must be conducted through ICUT.  All members who currently hold a CAPF 76, Radio Operator Authorization, are required to complete ICUT within 3 years.  Members who have completed BCUT-only are required to take all three ICUT modules (OP1, T1, and OP2).  Members who have completed ACUT will only be required to take one module (OP1).  If the server is taking a long time, or a video starts and stops frequently, try downloading the video locally.  The servers will be very busy during the next couple of weeks with members trying to take the training.
     
    Members with BCUT ONLY, or members with no prior Communications Training:
    - Complete the 2 videos and review quizzes for OP1.  Also complete the final exam.  The passing score is 80%.
    - Complete the 6 videos and review quizzes for T1.  Also complete a hands-on evaluation within 180 days of completing T1.
    - Complete the 2 videos and review quizzes for OP2.  Also complete a hands-on evaluation within 180 days of completing OP2.
     
    Members with ACUT:
    - Complete the 2 videos and review quizzes for OP1.  Also complete the final exam.  The passing score is 80%.
     
    Who can serve as an evaluator?
     
      First 6 months:
        For the first 6 months, any member holding a Senior or Master Rating in the Communications Officer Specialty Track, and having SET may serve as an evaluator.
       
      After first 6 months:
        After the 6 month period is over (20FEB13), any member currently assigned as a Communications Officer at any level (Squadron, Group, Wing, National) who has SET and has completed ICUT may serve as an evaluator.

    The Evaluator's Guide and Evaluation Worksheet (login required) are located on the Communications Page.  This guide and worksheet MUST be used for all evaluations
     
    Downloaded material for conducting ICUT in a classroom-setting will be available in the near future.
     
    If any member has completed ACUT and it does not currently appear on their 101 card, please send the supporting documentation to Maj Alex Whitacre so it can be entered.  The Learning Management System uses what has been entered into OpsQuals (in this case ACUT) to determine which ICUT modules a member is required to complete.
     
    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
