The following is a chart that lists the subjects that our Air Cadets learn by level. #3 Striker Squadron trains one night per week - a "parade night" - to undertake the local training program prescribed by the Director of Cadets. The four year program provides cadets instruction in citizenship, leadership, survival training, instructional techniques, drill and ceremonial and the basics of aviation and aeronautics. In the fifth and subsequent years, cadets may be assigned to instruct these classes to the younger cadets. The local training begins in September and continues until late May. The majority of cadet training takes place during the regular school year with a percentage of cadets selected for summer training courses at various Cadet Training Centres located across Canada. The information below focus on the regular weekly training and not summer training. PO is short for Performance Objective.
