The United States Army Cadet Command (USACC) Circular 145-05 covers all aspects of Cadet Summer Training (CST). There are four (4) components to CST; (1) Cadet Initial Entry Training (CIET), (2) Cadet Leader Course (CLC), (3) Cadet Professional Development Training (CPDT), and (4) International Programs (IP).
1. CIET is a primary basic military skills training course and a 2-year commissioning lateral entry program. Through CIET, students without Military Science Basic Course experience earn credit for the course. It is often a prospective Cadets' first exposure to Army life on an Army installation and one of the few opportunities where Cadets from various parts of the country undergo a common, high-quality training experience.
2. The CLC mission is to train Cadets and officer candidates (OC), develop Cadet/OC leadership, and provide feedback for individual officer development. CLC is intentionally stressful and is designed to build individual confidence through the accomplishment of tough and demanding training. The course is designed to build upon the core on-campus instruction by developing and assessing leadership potential in a platoon-level environment. It is often the Cadet's first exposure to Army life on an active Army installation and one of the few opportunities where Cadets from various parts of the country undergo a common, high-quality training experience.
3. The CPDT programs encompass a variety of leader development and training opportunities for Cadets. These opportunities include the Cadet Troop Leader Training (CTLT), Drill Cadet Leader Training (DCLT), Internships, and Cadet Practical Field Training (CPFT) programs. These programs offer leader training and development; attendance at duty skill enhancement schools and specialized training courses.
4. The IP Summer Leader Development Training is a focused training program authorized by law and mandated by Department of Defense, Department of the Army, and Training and Doctrine Command policies and directives. IP training is designed to develop future leaders who are culturally astute with foreign language experience, who, on their first deployment, are confident and competent in the Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, and Multinational (JIIM) environment. IP Leader Development Training requires Cadets attain basic level competency in the Leader, Regional, and Cultural Competencies outlined in CJCSI 3126.01A, dated January 2013.
The Cadet Command mission is to commission the future officer leadership of the U.S. Army and motivate young people to be better citizens. Within this framework, the CIET, CLC, and IP missions are to TRAIN Cadets to Army standards, DEVELOP leadership, and ASSESS officer leadership potential.
