“This is not any average course. If you make it past selection, you will be pushed beyond your limits both physically and mentally. Everything you have ever learned as a Cadet will be challenged. Abstract will be your norm and the unconventional will be your standard. You will be expected to learn more, do more, win more and lead more. You will become the Sheepdog, the quiet professional, confident in your abilities and humble in your approach,” said SFC Anderson, Course Director, Cadet Ranger School. “This is not where you go to learn about truth, honor, loyalty. This is where you prove it. We are very pleased to partner with the experts at Extreme Military Challenge! to present the premier Cadet training program in the country."
