Field Training

ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING EXPERIENCES OF YOUR LIFE

During the summer after your sophomore year, you will participate in Field Training. This rigorous program involves physical conditioning, weapons training and survival training. But more than that, Field Training is your opportunity to develop your skills as both a leader and team member.

Field Training is required for all cadets who seek membership in the Professional Officer Course (POC) and is the only summer event that AFROTC requires cadets to attend. For most cadets, the summer following their sophomore year of college is when they will attend field training.

Here are a few of the many activities you will experience during Field Training:
  • Physical conditioning
  • Marksmanship training
  • Survival training
  • Air Force specialty orientation
  • Confidence course
  • Aircraft and crew orientation
  • Human relations
  • Drill and ceremonies
  • Leadership study
  • Group and expeditionary leadership activities
