Officer Training School (Long War)
Compared to vanilla XCOM Enemy Unknown/Within, the Officer Training School has changed dramatically. Many of the vanilla upgrades have been removed and instead replaced with Officer training programs.
Cannot be torn down once built.
Officer training programs
In addition, upgrades are unlocked based on the total ranks of living Soldiers during the game, instead of the vanilla requirements of a single soldier at a specific rank. United Kingdom's starting bonus Sandhurst reduces Total Ranks required by 33%. United States starting bonus Special Warfare School reduces Cost by 90%.

The total ranks are determined by adding the rank count of all living Soldiers together. Keep in mind that Privates have a rank count of 0, so hiring a ton of Privates will not unlock any upgrades.
