MIL 103 - Leadership Training I

Credits 3
The 28 day leader’s Training Course is conducted during the summer at Fort Knox, Kentucky and it consists of three phases - the “Future leader’ phase, “Bold leader” phase and “Discover Gold” phase. During the “Future Leader” phase you’ll rappel, participate in a leadership reaction course, learn water survival and stream crossing techniques, first aid, weapons and how to navigate on land using a map and compass during the day and night. You’ll be challenged physically throughout this entire phase. You’ll learn when to lead and when and how to follow. During phase two, the “Bold Leader” phase we’ll teach you small unit tactics. We’ll put you through a self confidence building obstacle course, rock climbing, paintball and the tarzan assault course. With your newly established confidence in water survival you’ll participate in small boat or raft operations. Additionally, this phase highlights the importance of teamwork and a balanced lifestyle of work and recreation. Finally, during the “Discover Gold” phase you’ll participate in some very entertaining social events, a family day and the culmination of the course - the graduation ceremony.
