Abstract :

One is not born an officer, but becomes one. The path that leads a young man or woman to acquire the skills, knowledge, and ethos of an officer fit to exercise command are, of necessity, rigorous and selective. Not just anyone can become an officer. Training professionals in the management of violence1 is one of the essential missions of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), and, in particular, of the Canadian Military Colleges (CMCs).

What type of initial training is the best for producing ‘good’ officers? What type of officers will the CAF need in the coming years? Is the training currently being given in the Canadian Military Colleges the most appropriate for training the officers of the future? This article reflects upon these questions and offers a few suggestions in response.
