|Inner Sphere Military Ranks|
|For specific ranks see Military Ranks|
In every military in the Inner Sphere there are officer candidates undergoing training at a military academy. These trainees are known as Cadets. "Cadet" isn't actually a rank like Sergeant or Captain; It's usually used to indicate that the holder is undergoing training, much like the rank of Recruit. Usually they have no command responsibilities, and are only in the field to learn practical skills.
