The US Army Airborne School, located at Ft. Benning, Georgia, is available to cadets that are enrolled in the program. The course is three weeks long, consisting of a ground week, tower week and jump week. With each week comes different types of training designed to teach you how to parachute out of airplanes and helicopters. It is an exciting non-stop course that will push you to the limit. AIRBORNE!!!
AIR ASSAULT TRAINING
"Stand up, hook up, slide down the rope!" This school combines the utility of rappelling with the excitement of riding in helicopters. Also, students learn how to hook objects like howitzers and Humvees underneath hovering helicopters. Air Assault is as mentally challenging as it is physically demanding. It requires the student to be strong in both mind and body before attending. The reward for ten days of hard work is the coveted air assault badge.
CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING AND LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY (CULP) PROGRAM
Every year hundreds of Cadets travel the globe, spending up to three weeks immersed in foreign cultures. The Army recognizes the need for young leaders to develop more cultural awareness and foreign language proficiency skills. Cadets now receive opportunity to compete for immersion in more than 40 countries. These opportunities expose them to everyday life in different cultures and intensifies language study, which helps produce commissioned officers who possess the right blend of language and cultural skills required to support global operations in the 21st Century.
Project Global Officer (Project GO) is a collaborative initiative that promotes critical language education, study abroad, and intercultural dialogue opportunities for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) students. Project GO programs focus on the languages and countries of the Middle East, Asia, Central Asia, Africa, and South America.
CADET TROOP LEADER TRAINING (CTLT)
CTLT increases each cadet's leadership experience. Each Cadet is assigned to a platoon leader position and given an opportunity to lead soldiers. It familiarizes cadets with the command, training, administration and logistical functions of active duty units. It also exposes cadets to the on-duty and off-duty environment of the junior officer.
NURSE SUMMER TRAINING PROGRAM (NSTP)
Nursing students who are also Army ROTC Cadets have an opportunity for a unique summer nursing experience. The paid, three-week Nurse Summer Training Program assigns Cadets to Army hospitals throughout the U.S. and Germany. The nursing program introduces you to the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) and to the roles and responsibilities of an Army Nurse Corps Officer. Under the supervision of an experienced Army Nurse CorpsOfficer, you will obtain hands-on experience. Your one-on-one clinical experience will allow you to hone your clinical skills, develop your problem-solving techniques and become comfortable with developing your professional skills as a member of the U.S. Army Healthcare Team.
ENGINEER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (EIP)
This internship is sponsored by the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE). This program is sponsored and funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Cadet will typically work in USACE District (Battalion or Brigade Command equivalent, usually in a resident office (construction office) working on civil, mechanical, electrical, or environmental engineering projects. Districts are located all across the US (36 Districts), and OCONUS (5 Districts). Projects support US Army or Air Force installations (military construction) or state and local communities (civil works-dams, levees, navigation, etc.). Cadets may perform engineering functions such as design, project management, project engineer, construction representative (Quality Assurance), GIS, and more. Program focus is engineering majors. Majority of slots focus on civil, mechanical and environmental engineering; however, all engineers should apply. Applicants are slotted based on host requirements. Slots are requested based on the applicant's majors. Usually there are many more available slots than Cadets; so many possibilities are available to choose from.
Locations: Cadets in the EIP may serve at locations within the continental United States (CONUS) or outside the continental United States (OCONUS).
