Air Force ROTC field training is offered during the summer months at selected Air Force bases throughout the United States. Students in the four-year program participate in four weeks of field training, usually between their sophomore and junior years. Students applying for entry into the two-year program must successfully complete six weeks of field training prior to enrollment in the Professional Officer Course. The major areas of study in the four-week field training program include officership training, aircraft and air-crew orientation, career orientation, survival training, base functions and the Air Force environment, and physical training. The major areas of study included in the six-week field training program are essentially the same as those conducted in four-week field training and in the General Military Course including Leadership Laboratory.
