Cav Leader's Course open to other branches.Efforts to make modular brigade combat teams (BCTs) a reality have required some fundamental shifts in thinking about how to organize BCTs and configure them to fight in a full-spectrum environment.

As the force structure changes, we also must reconfigure our assumptions about who should attend the CLC. The combined arms philosophy underpinning the logic behind creating modular BCTs demands that all officers assigned to the BCT BCT Brigade Combat Team

Leaders who attend the CLC are provided in-depth knowledge of reconnaissance and security as applied to the new reconnaissance squadrons found in the heavy BCTs (HBCTs), infantry BCTs (IBCTs) and Stryker BCTs (SBCTs). The CLC accomplishes its learning objectives through practical exercises that test and hone the students' understanding of the latest doctrine; tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs); organizations; missions; and the capabilities and limitations of reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition For the RSTA/ISTAR/STA doctrine, see .

The Armor School encourages CLC enrollment for all Armor officers as well as leaders serving in Field Artillery, Infantry, Engineers, Aviation, Military Intelligence and Signal Corps assigned as planners or commanders of RSTA/cavalry organizations in the modular BCTs. These planners or commanders should consider attending the CLC to prepare for assignments to or in support of RSTA and cavalry organizations. Attendance at CLC is now open to graduates of any Officer Career Course in the grades of first lieutenant (promotable) through major.
The course is offered six times a year and is three weeks long. Enrollment is available through the Army training requirements and resources system (ATRRS ATRRS Army Training Requirements & Resources System (US Army)
