​CTC III-14, Week 18

Starting Cadets: 135, Remaining: 93

 

CTC III-14 went into week 18 determined to finish strong and face the many challenges the week had to offer. Although it was a short week because of the holiday, we were still challenged as if it were a full week. PT Staff trained us for civil disputes and continued to strengthen our minds and bodies through our new workout routine Chipfit. Range Staff is fine tuning our shooting skills and allowed us to feel what it's like to be tased. The results were shocking.

After enjoying our Holiday break with our families we are focused on scenarios that are just around the corner. The Staff Officers continue to shape us into the CHP Officers that the academy is known to produce. We would like to thank all the academy staff for the continuous effort they put into our success.

​CTC III-14, Week 17

Starting Cadets: 135, Remaining: 93

 

Week 17 was a memorable one for CTC III-14 in many ways, combining skills and lessons that we have learned over our months of training so far. The first challenge of the week was our Felony Stop Scenario, where cadets practiced making traffic stops on potentially dangerous subjects. Cadets were evaluated on their enforcement techniques to ensure that they would be prepared for these unpredictable situations.

Throughout the week we were also tested for proficiency with our Departmental Firearms. The pistol, shotgun, and rifle qualification courses included several different shooting environments and situations from varying distances.

Without a doubt, the most memorable day of the week was Thursday. This was when we got to experience firsthand the effects of Oleoresin Capsicum, commonly referred to as "Pepper Spray". Each cadet lined up and was sprayed in the face with Oleoresin Capsicum. Immediately after being sprayed, each cadet was required to perform 20 push-ups while the burning and blinding effects of the spray took hold. This experience was educational and provided a moment of bonding for CTC III-14

​CTC III-14, Week 14

Starting Cadets: 135, Remaining: 99

 

CTC III-14 began week 14 ready to face a new set of challenges and further grow into fine cadets. We were thankful to be with our families for Thanksgiving day, but the shortened work week was still full of obstacles. Range staff initiated our rifle training and continued to fine tune our skills with or primary duty weapon. As the weather begins to change, we are learning to cope with some of the challenges the new season will bring. The CHP has the duty to serve 24/7/365, no matter what the conditions may be. We all look forward to strengthening our resolve and dedication to serve. The PT staff are diligent in fine tuning our arrest techniques as our certification tests near. We continue to anticipate welcoming our junior cadet's, upon their upcoming arrival.

Most importantly, we appreciate the Staff Officers as they continue to provide superior motivation for us to push forward towards our goal of becoming an officer. We would all like to thank them for their exemplary examples of what a fine CHP Officer should be, on a daily basis.

​CTC III-14, Week 12

 

Cadet Training Class III-14 entered week 12 full of determination to continue to better ourselves. The week started with our second physical fitness test to see how much we have improved in the last three months. Already, the changes have been tremendous. The class is making progress in our emergency vehicles operations courses (EVOC). The EVOC Staff pushed our driving skills to new levels.

We are very excited to begin training with our duty pistol: The academy demonstrated different shooting styles. The physical training (PT) Staff strengthened our bodies and minds. PT Staff keeps us motivated each morning, cultivating our will to survive.

"A" Company had the honor performing the fountain ceremony and represented our class very well by performing an outstanding ceremony. The academy staff continues to keep us focused on training, however, we anxiously await our junior cadets arrival next month. The Staff Officers continue to give us 110% each day to ensure our success at this very challenging academy. We are very thankful for the Staff Officers for their persistent efforts to transform us into fine cadets and eventually officers.
