National Course Applications

In late October, we began the application process for those cadets in Level 3 and up who wish to apply for a National Summer Training Course.

Cadets were asked to complete a Summer Training Worksheet, outlining their preferred courses, based on the 2016 Summer Training Opportunities.  This document outlines all summer training courses available.  The National Course options are as follows:

International Air Cadet Exchange (IACE)
Power Pilot Scholarship (PPS)
Glider Pilot Scholarship (GPS)
Advanced Aviation Technology – Airport Operations (AO)
Advanced Aviation Technology – Aircraft Maintenance (AM)
Advanced Aerospace (AASC)

All squadrons have limited quotas for submissions to National Courses.  We may submit one applicant for IACE, three for GPS, and three for PPS, and selection will be based on criteria such as rank, attendance, and performance on applicable assessments.  Cadets will be advised if they have been selected for submission on Wednesday.

Those cadets who are applying for a National Course are required to submit a number of additional documents, based on their desired course.  An asterisk (*) indicates that cadets should wait until they are informed of their selection before incurring any unnecessary cost.

All National Courses:
School Transcript
Narrative signed and dated by the candidate

IACE:
IACE Information Form (in triplicate)
Copy of Proof of Birth and/or Nationality
Three (3) Colour Passport Photos*
IACE cadets must possess a valid passport

GPS:
GPS Height & Weight Form
Copy of Proof of Birth and/or Nationality
One (1) Colour Passport Photo*
Category 3 Transport Canada Medical Certificate* (due 1 Jun 16, should be booked in December for a March appointment)

PPS:
PPS Height & Weight Form
Copy of Proof of Birth and/or Nationality
One (1) Colour Passport Photo*
Category 3 Transport Canada Medical Certificate* (due 1 Jun 16, should be booked in December for a March appointment)

All cadets applying for National Courses must read the 2016 National Courses Handbook, which provides detailed information on requirements, including narratives, transcripts, photo requirements, Transport Canada medicals and more.

All National Course applications must be submitted to Detachment, via the squadron, no later than Friday, 11 December.  In order to meet this requirement, all documents must be received at the squadron no later than Wednesday, 2 December.

We will begin the process for Regional Summer Training Course applications on Wednesday, 2 December.  Cadets and parents are encouraged to review our Summer Training information together in order to assist in their decision.

Any questions regarding Summer Training applications should be directed to Captain Davidson.
