Fourth Fleet Cadet, Enlisted, and Command Training
Fourth Fleet Training Command is responsible for the education and professional development of officers assigned to the Fourth Fleet. Colloquially, referred to just as the Fourth Fleet Academy, it has jurisdiction over the Mellstoxx III campus of Starfleet Academy, Cadet Squadron Bravo, and the Fourth Fleet Command School.
Fourth Fleet Training Command is headquartered on Mellstoxx III, which is orbited by Starbase Bravo, the headquarters of the Fourth Fleet. The Commandant of the Fourth Fleet Academy oversees superintendents of the academy campus itself, the command school, and enlisted training.

Main Article: Starfleet Academy—Mellstoxx III
The Bravo Fleet Academy Campus (technically known as Starfleet Academy—Mellstoxx IIII) is the main facility through which officers entering the Fourth Fleet pass, either spending all four years of their training there, or sometimes just a few weeks, depending on their course of study and other factors. This campus has the capacity for 10,000 students and graduates about 2,500 officers per year. As a Betazoid colony, this academy campus is especially known for its counseling program, though it is a full-service academy.

Cadet Squadron Bravo
Cadet Squadron Bravo is an elite training unit for cadets in their third and fourth years at Starfleet Academy—Mellstoxx III. Cadets in this unit get additional training in diplomacy, tactics, and starship operations beyond what their peers would get and it is intended for officer-candidates on the fast track to starship command. Cadets in this squadron wear a blue enameled delta with a gold lightning bolt on their collars opposite their rank pips. In addition to their specialized training on the ground, the cadets of Bravo Squadron train extensively aboard a Constitution-class training ship, the USS Exeter.

Fourth Fleet Command School
The Fourth Fleet maintains its own command school, which is located in the same facility that houses Fleet Training Command and the Fleet Academy. It is meant for officers who already have significant experience as a department head in science, engineering, security, or medical but want to move into the command division to become an executive officer or starship captain.
