Cadet´s Daily Routine

Military Training

One of the essential and very important parts in the formation of would-be Army Officers is the one devoted to the training as combatants and the commanding training exercises in small units.

For this purpose, first-year cadets devote nine weeks in the year, and seven in the rest of the courses, divided into September, February and June.
