Cadet trainees are prepared to adjust from civilian to military life and disciplines, and learn proper wear of the uniform, saluting policies and procedures, drill and ceremony, marching, and living quarters standards.
During phase two, cadets train outdoors living in tents while learning to function in field conditions.
