I’ve been told mixed things about the entry criteria for the course, such as the requirement of MOI despite the fact that a post here last year didn’t mention it. Also, does anyone know the application deadline this year? I can’t find it anywhere
I’m pretty sure the deadline is long gone, the final selection process is in the next couple of weeks I think?
Correct, wing entry deadline was a couple of months ago.
In terms of entry criteria - no, MOI is not required but could be beneficial.
Final selection took place last Saturday so next year, around May/June 2023, look to apply for QAIC 16!
Ask your squadron staff around this time for the QAIC 16 Warning Order which will tell you all the eligibility criteria and a lot more info about the course.
