(Staff Cadets)

Staff cadets are the NCOs of the Cadet Training Centres. A staff cadet can assist the officer staff with the instruction and supervision of cadets, or might be tasked in an administrative or logistical support role. Rank and pay for staff cadets depend upon the position; this is usually determined during a pre-course training and evaluation period. This is considered an advanced training course, where staff cadets develop important leadership skills.


Staff cadets may not be less than 16 years of age as of the first day of January of the year of advanced training. Staff cadets must have completed level 4 training prior to the summer.
