The OIC and RSO must be certified by Camp Dawson Range Control as well as be appointed in writing by the unit commander. The briefing will be scheduled after your training event is approved and prior to your arrival at Camp Dawson. It is also required that the unit maintains two methods of communications on site at all times.
