1. Enlist in Basic Training!
When you enlist, you’ll receive one copy of the ALERT Cadet Basic Training Manual (view sample) for each participating family member, including Dad. Completion of the BTM takes 2 to 4 weeks, and is a prerequisite for membership as an ALERT Cadet. For details on how ALERT Cadet works, view the “Welcome to ALERT Cadet” Booklet.
