Summer Training – National Courses – Parent Briefing

Parents and Cadets:  Unfortunately, each year at least one cadet is disappointed that they can no longer apply for Summer Training because they did not follow the application process. All courses are in high demand and are selected regionally.  All dates below are not flexible – timings for paperwork are given to us by the Ontario Provincial Committee (Air Cadet League) and the London Detachment (DND). In order to have maximum selection for summer training we need to make sure we have everything: on time. Please read CAREFULLY.

For all cadets who are thinking of applying for a National Course:

  1. Go to your Guidance Counselor at school and request the previous year’s transcripts as well as the current year’s mid-term marks/report. Do this now.
  2. Read this: 2016 National Courses HB for Cadets CAREFULLY!!! There is a TON of information for you and your parents.
