The Mountain Ranger Battalion’s training program focuses on training cadets in basic military skills and leadership. Our emphasis is to train students to be leaders in the Army, with a major goal of training our cadets to excel at the Cadet Leadership Course. Ultimately, we want to equip every Cadet with the tools to excel as leaders within the Army’s Officer Corps. We believe this provides the foundation for building competent and confident leaders for our great Army.
Every week the Battalion has a two-hour lab where the advanced course Cadets teach other Cadets a variety of different subjects under cadre supervision. These labs are primarily hands on training opportunities. The labs facilitate the development of leadership skills while giving practical experience in military skills. Areas of emphasis include, squad level tactics, first aid, land navigation and drill and ceremonies.
