Twice a year, the Viking Battalion embarks on a Field Training Exercise. These three-day training exercises are designed to ensure cadets learn the soldier skills that cannot be taught on campus. 


Cadets are immersed in a tactical environment that include many skills taught in the classroom. The events include:

-Land Navigation

-Squad Tactical Exercises (STX Lanes)

-Patrolling
