CTLT is a four-week leadership experience conducted at units in the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, South Korea, and Europe. Cadets are placed in charge of a regular Army platoon of approximately 35 Soldiers. The Cadet’s objective is to perform the leadership and management tasks necessary to train the platoon’s Soldiers and maintain its equipment.
While in CTLT, Cadets continue to receive a rate of pay (Cadet Basic Pay) and allowances equivalent to that received at Advanced Camp. Transportation to and from the unit is provided. In addition, Cadets stay in Bachelor Officer Quarters and eat meals in the unit’s dining facility.
The experiences, insights, and firsthand knowledge received will better prepare the Cadet for a future as an Army Officer. To attend CTLT, a Cadet must meet the following criteria:
- Be selected by the Professor of Military Science (PMS)
- Have successfully completed Advanced Camp
This is a great way to research a military branch before selecting the one you would like to be assigned to during the accessions process.
