In the comments section below, we check everything a JTAC refers to a qualified service member who directs the action of combat aircraft engaged in close air support and other offensive air operations from a forward position. Keep in mind JTAC is not a military occupation, it is a certification or qualification. A lot of different military specialties can become JTACs. Navy Seals, swicks, recon marines, raiders, anglicomarines, green berets, 13 foxtrot, army Rangers, TAC, P’s, CCTs. We can go on and on.

Where they can become a JTAC. It’s not like a cook or an admin guy can just request to become a JTAC. There has to be a legitimate need for it.

JTACs can become certified in. One of them is SOTAC, which stands for special operations terminal Attack control course, which members of special operations units may attend. SOTAC, which is about four weeks long, involves high explosive bombs dropped from aircraft streaking through the sky thousands of feet above, providing close air support to ground troops. The course is offered roughly six times each year or more and trains students to conduct precise close air support missions involving the control of multiple aircraft, flying at different altitudes, and approaching from various directions. All bombing and firing missions take place over Yuma proving ground on an approximately 35 square mile zone located a mere 25 minutes drive from SOTAC’s classroom facilities. Here’s a picture of the fiscal year 20 SOTAC class schedule for your viewing pleasure.


At the end of the day, if you’re interested in becoming qualified as a JTAC, make sure you find yourself in.
