The summer training season is quickly approaching!
All Summer Training Documents have been uploaded to the squadron website under Summer Training. All important information, including packing lists, can be found in the Joining Instructions. Please ensure you are checking the correct document for the CTC your cadet is attending.
Please note that from June 13th until June 23rd, CI Pittman will be overseeing the summer training portfolio. Please send any questions to the summer training email address.
If your cadet has not been selected for a course at this time, there is still a chance that they may receive a call up until the day the bus/plane leaves. It is always a good idea to keep their uniform pressed and ready to go. In the past we have had cadets receive an offer to attend just hours before departure. A list of all summer courses, their locations and dates have been posted for your reference.
For the cadets who have been selected, the majority of the travel itineraries have been released and handed out. The MCC may alter travel arrangements at any time. I check for updates no less than 3 times a day, so should any changes be made, you will receive the updated itinerary in a timely manner. That being said, there are times where changes may be made by the MCC at the last minute. If that is the case, myself or the departure/return officer (see next paragraph) will call your phone numbers we have on file until we are able to make contact. All departures and returns will be posted on the squadron calendar. The CTC Joining instructions have also been posted to the squadron website here.
Every departure and return will have a squadron staff member assigned. The staff member will call you at least 2 days prior to departure to confirm the travel details. The staff member will also be present to ensure all cadets are accounted for and to provide updates to parents/guardians. It is imperative that cadets sign in with the staff member. The staff member will also distribute the original course offers to the cadets before they board the bus/plane. The original signed course offer is required to attend the CTC.
For those travelling by bus, please arrive at the location at least 30 minutes prior to the departure time. For those travelling by plane, please arrive 90 minutes prior to the departure time.
Lastly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience throughout this process. We hope your cadets have enjoyable summer, and look forward to seeing them in the new training year.
