Once the site has been set up the CIC and Asst CIC will conduct a final inspection of the training site to ensure all set up instructions have been followed and each obstacle is ready for training. At which time the CIC will contact Range Control and request permission to begin training Phase one ends when cadets arrive to the LRC course.
