The cadets started the training day with a 4.4K jog, twice around the Academic Oval of UP Diliman. It took about 39 minutes for them to finish. Nonetheless, everybody improved on their physical condition.

After that, the cadets learned about Signal Communication from guest lecturers from the Communications, Electronics and Information Systems Service, AFP (CEISSAFP). The lecture included the phonetic alphabet and numerals, means of communication, radio check, and a lot more. The cadets then proceeded to the DMST quadrangle as the lecturers demonstrated how to operate some radio equipment that they brought.
