Summer training offers an opportunity for cadets to travel to new areas and meet other cadets, while learning skills for personal development. Courses available for application are primarily based on the cadets completed training level, by the end of the training year.
Opportunities include virtual training, the locally delivered Cadet Activities Program, several courses delivered at Cadet Training Centre’s across Canada, employment as a staff cadet, and pilot training scholarships. These programs and courses range from 4 days, up to 7 weeks in duration. They are designed to be fun and challenging, while encouraging the cadet’s professional development. The Cadets are certain to have an engaging and rewarding summer at any of the locations they may end up.
The following items are the pre-requisites common to all training courses:
a. Have a complete annual validation on file;
b. Have their medical conditions validated on file;
c. Must be recommended by their Corps/Sqn CO;
d. Meet level training requirement by Jun 30;
e. Cadet must have no participation limitations that would preclude them from participating in the training of the course.
Some courses may have additional requirements for eligibility, check with your unit staff for more information.
