Our academy delivers challenging academic work in a paramilitary environment. Our instructors are dedicated to providing cadets with the tools for success in a demanding training environment. Many people have never experienced academy-type training. Cadets must prepare themselves to be “told” what to do and when to do it.
A typical training day might look like this:
|6:10 - 6:30 a.m.||Physical training|
|7:15 - 7:40 a.m.||Assigned work duties|
|7:50 a.m.||Morning colors|
|8 - 11:45 a.m.||Classroom/practical training|
|Noon - 1 p.m.||Lunch, assigned duties|
|1 - 5 p.m.||Classroom/practical training|
|6 - 9:55 p.m.||Practical training, study periods, or recreation|
|10 p.m.||Lights out|
Upon successful completion of training, cadets graduate to the rank of trooper. New troopers report to their post assignments for not less than 70 days of on-the-job training with a field training officer. The new troopers then return to the Academy for one more week of training in specialized areas.
