Troop Leader Training

The Cadet Troop Leader Training (CTLT)

CTLT provides Cadets the opportunity to experience leadership in Army units over a three to four week period. Cadets serve in lieutenant-level leadership positions in active duty units. Platoon Leader positions have a 3-4 week duration depending on the hosting unit and location. Assignments include units that are located in both the United States and foreign countries. Cadets are assigned a unit mentor, and are provided on-post lodging and meals via a dining facility (DFAC). This program is exclusively designed for MSIII Cadets after completion of LDAC.

Drill Cadet Leadership Training (DCLT)

The 4-week DCLT program provides Cadets with the opportunity to serve in a platoon leader or executive officer position in Initial Military Training (IMT) companies and to work closely with Drill Sergeants and other cadre. Position lengths vary in duration depending on the host unit and location. Cadets have the opportunity to apply leadership skills, interact with highly skilled and experienced Noncommissioned Officers (NCOs) and drill sergeants, and improve common task skill proficiency in an Army training environment.
