Leadership Labs and FTXs

This video is available at .

Our program runs weekly leadership labs on Thursday afternoon. Once a term we conduct a 2-day field training exercise (FTX) in conjunction with a weekend. The LFT is a culmination of the entire term's training, and each term the FTXs become more challenging and complex. All training is student-led and provides unique challenges, camaraderie, adventure, and a break from college life. In the fall, cadets learn the individual and team-level tasks to operate as a small unit. These tasks include first aid, marksmanship, communications, map reading, terrain analysis and land navigation. This training is mandatory for all contracted students and recommended for those seeking to contract.
