    PT sessions are like any you'd find in the Army. MSI-III classroom instruction consists of learning basic soldiering skills and preparing you for LDAC. Land navigation, the basic battle drills, the orders process. Lab is where you actually get to go hands on and practice what you've learned. MSIV year focuses on basic officership (UCMJ, counseling, OERs, etc). It may vary from institution to institution, so take a look at the syllabus at your school.

    Kind of a general question, but I would assume labs are training exercises (field and situational), PT is working out with the battalion 3 times a week and your APFT score, and classes are just that: taught in a classroom about military-related subjects.

    But I'm not an expert!

    PT is 3 days a week with the entire battalion to do a workout of some type. Class is about leadership and values/ideas the Army wants from you (warrior ethos, UCMJ, Army values, officership, etc.) and lab is hands on "training". This semester in lab we learned about combat first aid, how to properly use radios, land nav, assembly/disassembly of weapons, as well as a few other skills. MSIs and MSIIs have basic lab where we learn simple skills like I just described. MSIIIs have advanced lab where they learn things like maneuvers, lanes, and other advanced skills. The MSIVs taught the labs with cadres help.

    While these are all generally correct, I want to point out how much they vary from school to school. Some Battalions PT 5 days a week :eek:
