DS will be finishing CIET soon. Overall impression of his experience is so-so. He has said he has learned some things and has been able to polish some other thing he already knew. It's great to be able to interact with other cadets from all over the country. His biggest complaint is the sheer amount of down time. Some days they sit in their barracks for 6-8 hours waiting to do a 1 hour class. I realize its the first year but I hope CC seeks honest feedback from the cadets and cadre to tweek the training so the cadets can get the maximum benefit next year.
