Upperclassmen Programs - EST
Expeditionary Skills Training (EST) is a required training program all rising 3 Degree Cadets must go through.
This program exposes Cadets to real-world expeditionary Air Force situations and environments and teaches them the skills necessary to navigate those obstacles.
Cadets conduct initial classroom instruction in Fairchild Hall before relocating to the Jacks Valley Training Complex (JVTC) to continue learning and practice skills in a deployed environment.
Furthermore, cadets are trained in and are expected to demonstrate dismounted patrol, military operations on urbanized terrain and battlefield first-aid.
Cadets are also given Code of Conduct training with an emphasis on survival and evasion, essential skills needed if they are ever in an isolated situation.
We will be back in EST to catch this Period's 2nd Group in the next week so be sure to check back for our coverage of the next group of Cadets going through EST during this summers 1st Period!
