Teaching as a DPE Instructor
DPE Instructors are assigned to a Teaching Committee - Military Movement (applied gymnastics), Boxing, Combatives, or Aquatics (survival swimming). You will generally teach 4 sections in your committee per round (quarter). Additionally, you will teach one of our cognitive courses - PE215 Personal Fitness or PE450 Unit Fitness. The Fitness courses are lecture/lab courses that provide cadets with a baseline of knowledge and exposure to application in Wellness, Personal Fitness, and Organizational Fitness. Depending on your interests and skills, you may also teach a variety of lifetime sports (e.g. Strength Development, Golf, Basketball, Aerobic Fitness, Alpine Skiing, Rock Climbing, Snowboarding, etc.).In addition to teaching, other duties can include:
- Administrative Duty: each member of the faculty is assigned an administrative duty... Testing, Guidance, Operations, and others
- Sport Educator: supervise the execution of a company athletic program
- Mentor: all aspects of cadet development, to include Values Education Training, Competitive Sports Programs, various Cadet Clubs, and more
The job is great and the environment is outstanding. We have an outstanding mix of rotating military officers and permanent civilian faculty with a variety of backgrounds.
