Airborne School

The U.S. Army Airborne School is located at the U.S. Army Infantry Center, Ft. Benning, Georgia. This course is designed to train soldiers to become paratroopers. It develops students' confidence through repetitious training so that they can overcome the natural fear of jumping from an airplane and develop and maintain the high level of physical fitness required of a paratrooper through rigorous and progressive physical training. Each student must satisfactorily complete five jumps from an aircraft while in flight.

Air Assault

Air Assault school is at East Range Schofield Barracks, Hawaii.This course is conducted by the 25th Infantry Division (Light) Tropic Lightning. It is an intense, 10-day course designed to give leaders a basic understanding of Army helicopter missions. There is some class room instruction, but it is mostly hands-on and performance oriented. It is broken down into four phases: pathfinder operations, slingload operations, rappelling phase, and foot march phase.

Leader's Training Course (LTC)

There are scholars among you who aspire to achieve something even greater than a college degree. They aspire to be leaders. They are Army ROTC Cadets - and you can join them by attending the Leader's Training Course (LTC).

LTC is four weeks of intense classroom and field training held in the summer at Fort Knox, KY. This course is an accelerated version of the two years of leadership development training Cadets receive in the Basic Course. By transforming yourself through this rigorous training, you will qualify for enrollment in the Army ROTC Advanced Course on campus-provided you have two years of college remaining (undergraduate or graduate).

At LTC you experience the Army firsthand. You will receive the kind of leadership development training that is unmatched by any other program. How? By developing your potential in the most important of ways-mentally, physically and emotionally. You will be grouped into squads where you will gain experience in all leadership roles-culminating in verbal and written feedback on your improvement. You will also receive a stipend, transportation to and from Fort Knox, housing and meals. The four weeks and four phases of LTC can lead you to the ultimate goal: becoming an Army Officer.

The benefits of this leadership training will extend well beyond your college years into any career you choose. You may even qualify for a two-year scholarship that may take care of your college tuition and many other expenses.

The Four Phases of LTC

Soldier First Phase

Upon arrival, Cadets are immersed in the ways of the Army. They begin Physical Training (PT) and Drill and Ceremony (D&C) which instill self-discipline and prepare them for the rigors and challenges of the upcoming weeks. Cadets also spend time on the Team Development course where they work together to overcome obstacles in simulated tactical situations.

Warrior Leader Phase

This phase builds on the basics Cadets have learned by extending into adventure training in the field. Combat Water Survival Training, rappelling, land navigation and marksmanship training provide physical challenges that test Cadets individually while developing teamwork skills. Also included in this phase are squad tactics, urban combat simulations and orienteering.

Bold Leader Phase

In this phase, Cadets learn squad-level operations by taking part in demanding field exercises. During these exercises each Cadet, in turn, is called upon to lead their squad in every part of a mission—from receiving orders and analyzing the terrain to making a plan and attaining the objective. All the while, Cadets receive detailed feedback on their leadership abilities.

Future Leader Phase

Cadets in this fourth and final phase are given comprehensive guidance from their LTC instructors to get a sense of their accomplishments over the past weeks. While performing continuing daily tasks such as physical fitness, Cadets also arrange and take part in their Family Day, graduation and awards ceremonies.
