Training is available at different Army posts across the country. It is a 12-day course that consists of rigorous physical training, helicopter sling load training, rappelling, and a 12-mile timed road march in full combat gear. Cadets proudly display their Air Assault wings and can share their stories from training with you.
Located at Ft. Benning, Georgia, it is available through Army ROTC to all contracted cadets. The course is three weeks long, consisting of a ground week, tower week, and jump week. Each week covers different topics or points of performance, designed to teach Cadets to conduct airborne operations. After five successful parachute jumps, including one night jump and own combat equipment jump, Cadets will be awarded the U.S. Army Parachutist Badge.
Project GO is a nationwide program open to all qualified ROTC students offering fully-funded opportunities in critical language education, overseas study, and cross-cultural experience.

Ranger Challenge Team
Often described as the “varsity sport” of ROTC, the annual Ranger Challenge is a high-intensity, inter-school competition that includes testing military skills, and a myriad of other physical and team-oriented events. Schools within the Brigade send teams to Fort A.P Hill, VA every Fall to compete against each other. Participation on the team is open to male and female cadets. The training is fast-paced and rigorous but provides a tremendous opportunity for personal growth, leadership development, and camaraderie.
