Getting Started

Cadet Initial Entry Training

Cadet Initial Entry Training (CIET) is a four week course held at Fort Knox, KY. It focuses on critical military and leadership skills taught during the basic courses of the Army ROTC curriculum (MSI and MSII). The CIET leadership development curriculum and situational training exercises push Cadets to their physical and mental limits, challenging them to discover their true leadership potential.

Cadet Initial Entry Training is a requirement for all cadets and may be completed either after Freshman or Sophomore year.

For those who join ROTC after their Freshman year, CIET is a way to earn credit for the missed Army courses. After completing this course, cadets are qualified to enroll in the Army ROTC Advanced Courses (MSIII and MSIV)
