In Peoria we don’t have anything like this… nothing close to this."

Next Level Training
The Army National Guard’s eXportable Combat Training Capability (XCTC) program is an instrumented Brigade field training exercise designed to certify Platoon proficiency in coordination with First Army.
XCTC provides an experience similar to a Combat Training Center to Guard Soldiers at home station or at a regional training center, minimizing cost and time away from home and jobs.
The program brings full training resource packages to National Guard and active duty bases around the country, allowing units to train on their schedule, close to home.
What To Expect
XCTC will challenge you.
Prepare to become a more effective soldier.
Training lanes are customized to meet the Commander’s objectives and encompass maneuver and support units.
Lanes may include ambushes, company hasty attack, platoon movement to contact, brief recon missions, vehicle recovery, and more.
Training aids include battlefield effects, civilians on the battlefield, foreign national role players, and cutting edge FlexTrain tracking technology.
Training Done Right
Depending upon a unit’s tasking, XCTC satisfies TR-2 or TR-3 requirements with a 15- or 21-day training event, in accordance with the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) training model.
All training events belong to the Brigade Commander, and everyone involved in a training event is there to support that Commander.
Training is customized to meet the Commander’s objectives, using Unified Land Operations scenarios and the Decisive Action Training Environment.
