All Viking Battalion cadets receive in class training on the fundamentals of rappeliling, and are then provided with the opportunity to practice the skills in the field/

Unlike the rappelling that is typically done in the civilian world, cadets do not use commerical harnesses, but fashion their own "swiss seat" out of triple strand braided 7/16'' diameter line.
