Because officers function as directors of our business units, they are required to complete a two-year program at The Salvation Army's accredited training college. The curriculum provides extensive instruction and guidance, including nonprofit management, business administration, and theological studies. Upon graduation, students - also known as "cadets" - are ordained as officers and given their first assignment Doing The Most Good in a local community.
