Everybody I know that wants to be CATM either with the waiver or through normal crosstrian procedures are being held off because of all the mandatory cross trains going on. My wife just got tasked for a mandatory retrain into CATM or K9. There are people that want to do like a few of my buddies that get denied, and there are people who don't want to do it that get chosen. Go figure, it's the Air Force. CATM isn't a bad gig though. It's alot of work though. You deploy just like a normal cop would. It's not like K9 where you deploy as a K9 cop. You almost always deploy as a regular cop. My squad leader here is CATM and when he gets back, he will go back to flight. I wouldn't mind doing it and I have a feeling I'm going to have do a mandatory retain here soon.
