INTRODUCTION Program Goal: To develop in cadets the Phase III leadership skills (indirect leadership) outlined in the cadet regulation’s Leadership Expectations (ref: CAPR 60-1, chapter 2). 

Eligibility: Because RCLS addresses skills relating to indirect leadership and company-grade cadet officer topics, participating cadets need to be cadet officers or cadets on the cusp of officership. Therefore, students attending RCLS should have completed an encampment and hold the grade of C/MSgt or higher. 

Duration: At least 24 hours of instruction. 11 - 14 June 2018. 
 Graduation Requirements. As with other activities, cadets must satisfactorily complete at least 80% of the program to graduate, as judged by the activity director.
