To start off their 8th Training Day, the cadets had a diagnostic physical fitness test. They performed as many push-ups and sit-ups as they could, each exercise for a duration of two minutes. A 2 km run around the Academic Oval followed. Sponsors time boosted spirits and the cadets resumed preparation for the second phase of the RAATI.
The cadets began their double training day with a lecture on military leadership. Assisted by the CNCOs,they took a leadership test to determine which aspects of themselves they still need to develop to become better leaders. As a diamond is created by carbon, heat and pressure, a good leader is made by character, knowledge, and application. This could be seen in the examples of the CNCOs. During the parade practice, Platoon Sergeants led their platoons under the direction of their Platoon Leaders.

The UP ROTC cadets held the 4th Training Day on a Saturday seemingly like any other. Training on this year’s Valentine’s Day began on the third floor of the vanguard building. The newly trained cadet non-commissioned officers (CNCOs) took charge of their fellow cadets. They were all taught the basics of signal communication. This included a comparison of the different communication methods, the phonetic alphabet, the Morse code, and cryptography. These are things that the cadets will have to remember as they will be challenged with having to decrypt announcements and reply in coded messages as well. Parade practice in preparation for the RAATI followed. The cadets stayed snappy despite the heat of the late morning sun. The cadets were also drilled in the forming, dressing, and inspecting of their platoons.

On 07 February 2015, their 3rd TD, the cadets took a diagnostic exam and practiced the parade sequence, both in preparation for the RAATI (Regional Annual Administrative and Tactical Inspection). After the rigors of mental and physical training, the cadets went beyond what was required of them to honor those who had devoted their lives to a higher cause.
The cadets of the University of the Philippines Diliman ROTC Unit were welcomed back from their break with warm messages from their Corps Commander and other officers, and with various proficiency exercises in Marksmanship Training.
