Drill Tests, Milestone Tests, and Promotion Boards

The individual cadet is ultimately responsible for accomplishing all eligibility requirements necessary to qualify for promotion. Drill tests for phase I and II cadets and milestone tests and promotion boards at the conclusion of each phase require involvement from various levels of cadet program staff. It is your responsibility to take initiative to request these tests from your superior in a timely manner before meetings.
