National Advanced Leadership Camp Training
FIELD LEADER'S REACTION COURSE
FLRC is designed to develop and evaluate leadership and to build
teamwork early in the camp cycle. Course administration is accomplished using
the established cadet organization and chain of command. Cadet leadership
potential is assessed by committee evaluators. Cadets are provided the opportunity
to get early feedback on their leadership strengths, weaknesses, styles and
BASIC RIFLE MARKSMANSHIP
Future Army Leaders must know the characteristics of the basic Army
rifle, how to fire it accurately, and how to employ it in combat. Rifle marksmanship
training teaches cadets to engage and hit targets on the battlefield. Cadets
are required to fire for record. Qualification is a camp completion criterion.
Confidence training builds individual, team and unit esprit
through a series of individual and team competitions. It gives cadets
to evaluate their courage and resolve, and gives cadre the opportunity
to evaluate the cadets' mental attitude under different levels of stress.
Squad Automatic Weapon / M60 machine gun training teaches cadets
the characteristics, functions and employment of the weapons. This training
provides skills used in later tactical phases of camp.
Land navigation training must be mastered early in the camp cycle
for the cadets to be fully successful in the tactical training which follows.
The land navigation evaluation consists of three portions totaling 100 points.
The written examinations is worth 30 percent. The day land navigation test
is worth 50 percent. Night land navigation is worth 20 percent. Each cadet
must earn 70 percent on each test to pass this event. A passing score in
land navigation is a camp completion criterion.
INDIVIDUAL TACTICAL TRAINING
ITT is the first block of instruction in tactics at National Advanced
Leadership Camp. It covers individual battlefield skills, combat movement
techniques, and procedures necessary for subsequent tactical training at
the squad and platoon level.
Fire Support teaches cadets the importance and lethality of artillery
fire on the battlefield, employment of indirect fires, and gives them the
opportunity to perform the duties of howitzer crewmen.
Basic understanding and use of hand grenades is an important facet
of weapons and tactical training. Cadets learn to identify major types of
grenades. They learn the grenades' characteristics and uses. Cadets also
employ live grenades.
NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, CHEMICAL
NBC training provides basic soldier skills that cadets must master
to meet pre-commissioning requirements. Cadets learn characteristics, maintenance
and employment of NBC equipment. They also develop confidence in defensive
equipment during mask confidence exercises.
SQUAD SITUATIONAL TRAINING EXERCISES
Squad STX is a five-day, two-phase event. The first two days, the
Squad training phase, are designed to train squad battle drills and collective
tasks. The last three days, the Squad STX lane phase, are designed to evaluate
leadership using tactical scenarios. Each cadet receives two formal evaluations
of their performance as a squad leader during this phase. Squad operations
builds on and reinforces all previous instruction. Cadets use knowledge of
land navigation, terrain association, weapons systems, and all individual
training previously presented.
PATROLLING SITUATIONAL TRAINING EXERCISES
Patrolling STX is a three-day event that provides cadets practical
experience leading soldiers at the section level. The first day is a training
day on which cadets are taught the fundamentals of patrolling missions. The
following two days are designed to evaluate leadership potential using tactical
scenarios by giving cadets opportunities to utilize the training as patrol
leaders and assistant patrol leaders. Patrolling STX builds on and reinforces
all previous instruction, and teaches cadets the basics of air assault operations.
This event culminates cadets' training at National Advanced Leadership Camp.
