Drill Cadet Leader Training (DCLT)

DCLT is similar to CTLT. The unit will be either Basic Combat Training or Advanced Individual Training. The assignment affords cadets the opportunity to enhance their small unit leadership skills in a number of different areas. Under the supervision of a senior NCO/Drill Sergeant, the cadet will learn and practice the duties of a mid-grade non-commissioned officer. The cadet will train new soldiers in skills such as drill and ceremonies, physical readiness training and basic rifle marksmanship. Cadets will have the opportunity to cultivate and practice instructional techniques and improve performance-counseling skills. This assignment is very challenging with a large demand placed on the cadet's time, self-discipline and physical endurance. Long hours and hard work can be expected. The training experience of drill cadet leader training will reward cadets throughout their military careers.
