(Course Cadets) 

Summer Training is an optional part of the Air Cadet Program. Cadets have the opportunity to participate in a variety of summer training opportunities throughout their career. Summer training courses offer more in-depth study and experience in a variety of different subject areas and builds off of the training that is conducted at the Squadron. Air Cadets may apply for courses in physical fitness, drill and ceremonial, aviation, aviation technology, air crew survival, marksmanship and music. Summer courses progress in scope and difficulty, and the intermediate and advanced level courses require pre-requisites of completing certain training levels.

Summer training opportunities are dependent on the cadet's training level. For 2024, all summer training will be held either at CTCs or virtually, and will be available for Level 2+ cadets only.


Cadets that have completed Proficiency Level 3 will have opportunities to attend Cadet Training Centers in 2024. There are no costs to attend summer training, with transportation, lodging and meals being provided by the Department of National Defence. Cadets will be paid an allowance for each week of training in order to cover their incidental expenses.
