This page will be refactored in the future when the training staff has more time and expertise using wikimedia.

The basic infantry training program is designed to standardize the knowledge-base of the standard Cluster player. To do this we have loosely adapted real-world basic concepts for Arma and created a 4 course program. Out of this 4 course program there are 2 mandatory blocks which every player is required to go through. From the time a new member joins they have 2 months to complete these 2 courses, after which if they have not completed them they are blocked from playing cluster community missions (This also pertains to current cluster members as of the 26th of November 2022). These 2 blocks are rather minor and should not take longer then 4 hours total across 2 training sessions to complete. It is advised to complete them in chronological order as some courses will reference previous courses, but it is not a requirement.
