New Cadets enter the unit as a Seaman Recruit. To advance in rate, a cadet should first complete the BMR requirements and plan to attend Recruit training (RT) in the summer. After attending RT there are several Advanced Trainings available to cadets based on their interests. See the Cadet Training listings on Homeport or click below.
