Our battalion is located at Ft. Indiantown Gap, approximately 25 miles northeast of Harrisburg, PA. We conduct MOSQ transition training for Cannon Crewmember (13B), Fire Support Specialists (13F), and Fire Control Specialist (13J).

We conduct courses for Foundation Instructor Facilitator Course (FIFC), Small Group Instructor Training Course (SGITC), Officer Candidate School (OCS), Platoon Trainer Qualification Course (PTQC), Tactical Certification Course (TCC), Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCS), Pre-Warrant Officer Candidate Course (PWOCC), RAVEN Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems training, and Company Commander and First Sergeant’s Pre Command Course (CCFSPCC).
All courses conducted here are administered in accordance with The One Army School System standards. Therefore, our courses are equivalent to those administered by our proponent schoolhouses (Ft. Sill, Oklahoma; Ft. Rucker, Alabama; and Ft. Benning, Georgia). We use the most current training doctrine and materials, and use equipment compatible with the training requirements and your unit of assignment. During your tenure as a student in 2nd BN, you will find experienced and certified instructors teaching you and holding you to strict Army standards.
While enrolled at any course offered here (whether for an IDT weekend or a two-week training period), all students are expected to remain at Ft. Indiantown Gap during the entire period covered by their training orders. All training is conducted in or near the garrison and we provide on-post transportation in support of all training events. Further, to aid you in success in our programs, we offer onsite administrative, logistical and social service support.
Lastly, a successful student will make use of this support, but also make certain to:
- Meet all enrollment criteria
- Attend training and class on the times and dates directed
- Display an attentive and cooperative attitude
- Bring all uniform and equipment items as directed
- Demonstrate the eagerness and ability to learn the required tasks and skills to Army standards
