These fields tackle the complex needs our country demands from us in the national and international areans. Every soldier in every cohort goes through periods of institutional training and on the job training covering these fields. The soldier learns up to a certain level in the tradoc environment then is sent to the force to apply what they have learned and gain real life experience. Then, usually at the next promotion level they return to tradoc to receive the next level of required knowledge. Additionaly the Army promotes the idea of being a lifelong learner and encourages the study of fields according to individual preferences to allow a truly broad depth of expertise across our fellow service members.
