Cadet Basic will start Monday, 25 July 2016 and end Friday, 29 July 2016. The course will cover approximately 20 hours of classroom instruction, physical training, and basic drill. Upon completion, students will receive a graduation certificate and their first promotion to the rank of Seaman Apprentice. A graduation ceremony will be held Friday, 29 July at 10:00 a.m. in the Escambia High School Gymnasium. When school starts, students completing Cadet Basic will be placed in leadership positions as class leaders and squad leaders. They will be expected to lead their fellow students as well as assist in training those who did not attend the training. Parents are asked to drop off their students no later than 7:20 a.m. and pick them up no later than 1:15 p.m. each day. They should dress comfortably for hot weather: T-shirts, shorts, and tennis shoes. Please ensure they bring bottled water and that they hydrate well before the course starts, as well as each day. There is a $5.00 fee for the course that is due the first day of training. In addition, a $30.00 one-time cost for the school year for NJROTC covers their NJROTC T- shirt, nametag, dry cleaning, and supplemental accident insurance; this amount may be paid during Cadet Basic or when school starts.
