Cadet Troop Leader Training

The Cadet Troop Leader Training Platoon Leader track provides cadets the opportunity to experience leadership in Army units over a three- to four-week period. Cadets serve  in platoon leader positions or other positions where a second lieutenant is normally assigned.

You will be attached to an active duty unit in order to "shadow" a Second Lieutenant (2LT).  This experience will allow you to observe the daily responsibilities and training of a 2LT in one of the Army's 24 branches.​
