The ALERT Application is where it all begins. Filling out your application for acceptance into Basic Training is the first step towards becoming an ALERT Responder. The completed application must be mailed to ALERT where the Basic Training Officers will review it for acceptance. Once approved, your official confirmation packet will be sent to you.

Cost and Payment

We’ve taken the guesswork out of planning your educational investment.

Prayer Calendar

A booklet containing the names and faces of those in each Basic Training unit, this resource was originally developed as a way for our staff to pray more specifically and fervently for the men of each Basic Training Unit. It has grown to be a publication we are pleased to make available to the families of our Recruits, Cadre, and now you.

Basic Training Packing List

Items on the Basic Training Packing List must be purchased and brought with recruits to Basic Training. Many of these items may be purchased at reduced prices through the ALERT Store. Unless otherwise noted, all items are required, regardless of season.
