In case of failing the same test twice, the cadet is locked out until meeting with a senior member.

Test Integrity: An honor statement will buttress the integrity of the testing program in an open-book environment. Before beginning an online test, cadets must agree to the following:

I certify that I am Cadet (Name). I will complete the following Cadet Achievement Test on my own, without help from another person.My only resource for this open-book test will be my cadet textbooks and class notes. [By clicking below,] I reaffirm my commitment to our Core Value of Integrity.


Cadet Drill & Ceremonies Testing


Upon passing the online written test for a Learn to Lead chapter, each cadet must successfully complete a practical test of their proficiency in drill and ceremonies for each achievement through the Mitchell Award (Achievements 1 through 8). These skills are also taught and reinforced during regular meetings and drill time.
