Cadets are strongly encouraged to attend the regularly scheduled weekly training provided at the Armoury. Training and lessons are conducted on Wednesday evenings between 1845h-2130h and during select scheduled weekends. Cadets receive instruction on a wide variety of topics and activities, such as marksmanship, navigation, equipment usage, drill practice, sports nights, and even dining etiquette and public conduct.
Cadet Instructors are responsible for reviewing the training plan to determine and prepare what lessons they will teach. Instructors are assigned to classes at up to 45 days in advance but assignments are subject to change and should be reviewed each Monday after 1800 hrs. Cadet instructors unable to teach an assignment MUST notify the training Officer as soon as possible to allow reassignment to another instructor.
