Air Cadet Squadrons operate a standardized training program on weekly training nights. The training is designed as a five-year program. Cadets will learn a wide variety of aviation, cadet and military-related subjects. It is mandatory for all cadets to attend these training nights.
Cadets who join when they are older than 12 may be eligible to be fast-tracked into either the second or third level of the training program. The Training Officer will inform new cadets if and when this is to happen.
Cadets also have the opportunity to branch off into their particular areas of interest by joining relevant squadron teams, groups or summer courses.
In addition to the training, older and more senior cadets may instruct the subjects to newer cadets and take on other jobs and responsibilities in the Squadron.
