Training Opportunities

Leader’s Training Course (LTC)

 

The Leader's Training Course (LTC) is the Army's only 2-year commissioning lateral entry program. Through LTC, students without Military Science Basic Course experience earn credit for the Basic Course and qualify for an Advanced Course entry.  It is often a prospective Cadets' first exposure to Army life on an Army installation and one of the few opportunities where Cadets from various parts of the country undergo a common, high-quality training experience.

 

Leader Development and Assessment Course (LDAC)

 

The Leader Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) mission is to train Cadets and officer candidates (OC), develop Cadet/OC leadership, and evaluate Cadet/OC officer potential.  LDAC is intentionally stressful and is designed to build individual confidence through the accomplishment of tough and demanding training.  The course is designed to build upon the core on-campus instruction by developing and accessing leadership potential in a platoon-level environment.  It is often the Cadets first exposure to Army life on an active Army installation and one of the few opportunities where Cadets from various parts of the country undergo a common, high-quality training experience.

 

Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP)

The Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) Summer Leader Development Training is a focused training program authorized by law and mandated by Department of Defense, Department of the Army, and Training and Doctrine Command policies and directives.  CULP training is designed to develop future leaders who are culturally astute with foreign language experience, who, on their first deployment, are confident and competent in the Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, and Multinational (JIIM) environment.
