While in ROTC, there are requirements both in and outside the classroom. With ROTC programs spanning the nation, each will be a little different, but there are a few things that are standard across the board. In the classroom, a cadet will learn about the Army, skills like map-reading as well as tactics and leadership. Outside of the classroom, cadets will conduct physical fitness training and learn how to apply what they have learned in the classroom. Physical fitness training may consist of running around the campus and local area, intensive circuit workouts, or playing team sports like football or soccer. Field training exercises are used to give cadets the opportunity to practice and apply their tactical knowledge, land navigation, and survival skills in an austere environment. Typical field training exercises take place on military training areas close to the program’s university. As part of their training, cadets are involved in planning all training events with instructor oversight. The goal of classroom and field training is to educate cadets and prepare them to succeed in ROTC.
