Schedule your PRT now. The PRT for this is a specialized test unlike the one you take for RTC.
PRT must be completed and returned prior to May 15th.
NOTE: PRT has to be supervised by a member of the military (see form for full details). If this or the timing presents a problem your CO must contact us prior to April 20th.
This is not an easy training. If you are not physically and mentally prepared, do NOT apply.
This will be outlined one final time so it becomes “crystal” clear.
1. This is not a field operations training. This is UCOIN. If you want to know what the training is about, hit the little button on Facebook called “about”. This is not a beginners training.
2. Attention to details and ability to follow instructions are vital in the real world for which this training is modeled. As such, if you do not follow the instructions listed EXACTLY, you will most likely be met with a VERY short response. You may think it is rude, we think it is part of the training. If you don’t like short, direct, and unsweetened, this is not the training for you.
3. Do not ask a bunch of questions until you have received and fully read the application package. We all are full time members of the units who do this stuff on a daily basis, and as such we often have more pressing items to attend to rather than answer questions that are covered in the material.
4. There are two packets of material you will be sent. The first is the application package and it will give details about the training, how to apply, and generally what to expect. The second, assuming you are accepted, is the acceptance package which will give much greater detail on what you will need to bring, what is acceptable and what isn’t, and how to start preparing for training in advance.
5. You are welcome to ask questions, but please keep them relevant to the stage you are in. Once you have received the application package, we are happy to answer questions about the process, concerns, procedures for the PRT, etc. Once you have received the acceptance package we will be in very advanced communication with parents and commanding officers to make certain everyone is fully prepared and properly equipped. Every question will be answered, just please respect the process and timing. Asking if you can bring a black holster before you have even turned in the application package is definitely not respecting the process. We understand you are excited, we appreciate your enthusiasm, just take a breath and wait until it is time.
6. Due dates are listed above. Acceptance letters will be sent out shortly after the PRT deadline.
7. DO NOT ASK IF THERE ARE STILL AVAILABLE SPOTS OPEN. The answer is “no”. There are no open spots ever. All spots are competitive and will be awarded on a merit basis. DO NOT ASK about dates, costs, location, etc. These are all clearly listed.
8. Make sure you follow the details listed there EXACTLY. Before you get ready to hit "send" on the email, reread this full post!
9. This post is for cadets, parents, and officers.
