Go beyond the ordinary
ALERT’s unique blend of classroom training, military structure, and extracurricular activities prepares men to make a difference in their world. Men in training live on our fully equipped campus for the duration of their time at ALERT, helping facilitate deep friendships that last long after graduation. Life at ALERT is a focused, dynamic time of personal and spiritual development, as you walk alongside other men who challenge, encourage, disciple, and learn with you. Are you ready to experience the camaraderie?
Housing & Dining
Each Basic Training barracks has four sparsely furnished bunkrooms that house 5-7 guys each, as well as a living room, two studies, a communal bathroom/shower room, and a laundry facility.
Our kitchen team prepares hearty meals that are made from scratch, providing recruits with a high-calorie diet to ensure they have the fuel they need for the demands of Basic Training.
The Battalion dorm has three wings per floor, each with four bedrooms, a kitchenette, and two studies. Each room sleeps up to four men and shares a large bathroom with the adjoining bedroom. In addition, there are several common areas for recreation and meetings, and a laundry facility.
The Battalion eats in the main campus dining room and are joined by staff and guests for meals throughout the week.
Physical training is integrated into every aspect of Basic Training. Morning PT, progressively longer hikes, and exercises for protocol infractions throughout the day all build mental and physical endurance. Recruits are required to pass the ALERT PT test in order to finish Basic Training.
Men in the Battalion start their day with organized PTs every weekday morning. PT is still challenging but tends to be more strength-based than Basic Training. Passing a quarterly PT test remains one of the promotion requirements throughout training. Students also have access to our fully equipped weight room and track to focus on their own fitness goals.
