This past Wednesday, College Commandant BGen Eric Tremblay cut the ribbon on RMCC’s new Small Arms Trainer (SAT). The SAT, which is essentially an indoor, computerized firing range using inert weapons, will enhance the quality of training available to Officer Cadets, as well as to Staff and Faculty.

“It’s hard to imagine a military college without a firing range,” said BGen Tremblay. “We don’t have the room for one, and with one up on the base available, we don’t really need one. Our new Small Arms Trainer fits our needs nicely.”
