Seminars in the tactical proficiency of dismounted patrolling.
The Situational Training Exercise (STX Seminar) is offered twice per year, once per each spring and fall semester. Each of the two-day STX Seminars covers an offensive tactic, defensive tactic, and enabling tactic that are conducted at the squad and/or platoon level. There are a total of six distinct STX Seminars forming the core of the three-year Warrior Leader Program.
