RST helps leaders reduce the risk of abuse, hazing, harassment, and humiliation at their activity. It provides examples and on-examples of hazing and illustrates how to create an effective and positive training atmosphere. Staff members, cadets and senior members alike, must complete RST each time they participate at a cadet activity lasting four nights in duration or longer. See CAPR 52-16 for full details.
Encampment commanders can use the newest curriculum immediately, or stay in the old curriculum at their option.
