Cadet Troop Leader Training

Cadet Troop Leader Training 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 three to four week duration depending on the hosting unit and location. Assignments include units that are located in the States and overseas.

Cadets are assigned a unit mentor, and are provided lodging and meals. This program is exclusively designed for MSIII Cadets after completion of CST.

CTLT is conducted at many Army bases nationwide or in the Federal Republic of Germany or the Republic of Korea. This internship program places Cadets in actual Army units acting as real Lieutenants.

This three to five week challenge is a definite learning experience, and allows Cadets to gain a perspective on what they will be facing as future officers. Generally, Cadets are placed in platoon leader positions, leading 30+ soldiers and responsible for millions of dollars of equipment.
