170822-N-GF511-003 POINT MUGU, Calif. (Aug. 22, 2017) Civil Engineer Corps Officers School Basic students conduct a survey for a potential helicopter landing zone during a five-day field training exercise (FTX). Their assessment included looking at existing buildings, utility poles, water and gas lines, vertical clearance, and windward approach, while maintaining security during the engineering reconnaissance. An integral part of the school’s training cycle, the FTX stresses leadership, teamwork and accountability, which students will need to be successful when leading Seabees in naval construction force expeditionary units.
