After the reception centers up to 14,000 soldiers a day reported to one of 242 training centers located throughout the country for roughly eight weeks of basic training. The training consisted of three general phases: turning civilians into soldiers; training soldiers how to use their equipment and weapons; and training soldiers how to function as units. At the training centers soldiers engaged in the following tasks:
- Indoctrination - understanding why we are fighting and the nation's objectives
- Physical conditioning to include the obstacle course
- First aid and sanitation
- Marksmanship
- Practical aspects of being a soldier: clothing, equipment, map reading, tent pitching, camouflage
- Marches and bivouacs
- Specialty (branch) training and unit training
