Teams were comprised of two to three people with a goal of 1000 push-ups total in a four-hour period.

While we enjoy a respite from work with the upcoming Holidays, there are still men and women in the military, nationwide and overseas, ensuring that our time off is safe and secure. So, this holiday season, we ask that you not forget the men and women risking their lives everyday.
As the prime contractor for the Combined Arms Command and Control Trainer System Upgrade (CACCTUS) program, which immerses trainees in realistic, scenario-driven environment for commanders and their battle staff to rehearse tactics, techniques and procedures, Riptide traveled to Twentynine Palms earlier this month to do a site audit after the month-long gaps in contracts. During the trip, Riptide was privileged to witness 1st Battalion, 8th Marines (1/8th) use the Combined Arms Staff Trainer (CAST) facility and CACCTUS in particular to prepare for their Battalion Assault Course or “BAC” the culminating event for a Marine Corps Infantry Battalion as they complete four weeks of training at Twentynine Palms, California in preparation for deployment overseas.
As a proud supporter of the Orlando tech community, Riptide Software is eager to help UCF students gain valuable work experience that is in line with their studies. Riptide offers various internships in their defense, commercial cloud, and e-learning industries.
It goes without saying that Riptide is a big supporter of the military through our products and services for training software and information technology. But we are proud to support them on the ground as well, from fund-raising events for organizations that aid veterans and their families to care packages for our men and women serving abroad.
