Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) I is the course for all new cadets. The course consists of three components: Aerospace Science (40%), Leadership Education (40%), and Wellness/Physical Fitness (20%).

Aerospace Science 100 is an aviation history course focusing on the development of flight throughout the centuries. It starts with ancient civilizations and flight, then progresses through time to future developments in aerospace, with an introduction into cyber technologies. The course also tells the story of why we are so proud of our Air Force heritage ─ laying the foundation for future AFJROTC aerospace science courses.

Leadership Education 100 is intended for students who are entering the AFJROTC program. It introduces cadets to history, organization, mission, traditions, goals, and objectives of JROTC for all services. The course focuses on key military customs and courtesies, how to project a positive attitude, and examines the principles of ethical and moral behavior. Lessons will also cover how to be emotionally, mentally, and physically healthy. Cadets will be introduced to civics, our rights and freedoms provided by the US Constitution, and our national government, including a historical understanding of the American flag and other important national symbols. Additionally, cadets will begin to learn and perform Drill and Ceremonies.

Wellness/Physical Fitness will incorporate the Cadet Health and Wellness Program (CHWP). The CHWP is an exercise program focused upon individual baseline improvements with the goal of achieving an Air Force physical fitness standard calculated by age and gender. Cadets will be given the opportunity to put into practice the wellness concepts that are taught in Leadership Education 100. The goal of the CHWP is to motivate JROTC cadets to lead active, healthy lifestyles beyond program requirements and into their adult lives.
