Field Training

All Air Force ROTC cadets must attend Field Training (FT). Cadets usually attend FT during the summer between their second and third years of college. The purpose of FT is to evaluate military discipline, Air Force leadership potential, and to determine the readiness for entry into the Professional Officer Course (POC) via leadership, followship, and teambuilding opportunities.
