Unified Combined Military Boot Camp
All recruits are given a pay grade of E-1 while they attend boot camp. Upon graduation, they are promoted to an E-2 rank and are given their initial assignment.
To graduate, all recruits are to complete the requisite physical tests and not display any mental aberrations. The Combined Physical Skill Test (CPST) evaluated a recruit's physical fitness, while the Combined Arms Skill Test (CAST) assessed their proficiency with firearms. Recruits also received a Gratney-Walis Hierarchical Aptitude Score (GWAS) which analyzed their command potential. Recruits are also training in vehicle maintenance and off-road driving skills.
The Armed Forces maintains numerous boot camps on Earth and Reach, one such facility on Earth being UCMB Sierra Largo. The Unified Combined Military Boot Camp also maintains a facility on Cyrus VII.
