Trainings Given to an Air Force ROTC Cadet

Every cadet in the Air Force ROTC goes through a different set of training by nature of their detachment resources and updated trainings through the years. At the very least cadets are given 1 year of Aerospace Studies, drill and ceremony, and 2 weeks of field training. That’s the minimum though cadets these days get less trainings from the shortened length of field training. Many of us get to experience much more from satellite operations to air assault school. I’m just going to quickly list the trainings given to me as a sort of advertisement and thank you to AFROTC.
