Students are introduced to the Leader Development Program that will be used to evaluate their leadership performance and provide developmental feedback for the remainder of their cadet years. Cadets are then taught how to plan and conduct individual and small unit training, as well as basic tactical principles. Cadets will also learn reasoning skills and the military-specific application of these skills in the form of the army’s troop. The lab reinforces small-unit tactical training while employing the troop leading procedures to accomplish planning and decision-making. Students continue to learn basic map reading, physical fitness and marching techniques.
