LEVEL 5

Building Your Legacy - Together.

The Level 5 course spans two training years, and provides opportunities for the Senior NCO to get involved in the actual running of the unit.  Emphasis is placed on the cadet's ability to instruct others in order to pass on their knowledge; to schedule and organize events, engage in the community, and stay active.

Level 5 marks the final local course in the cadet's career.  Upon completion of Level 5 training, senior cadets' duties involve instructing fellow cadets, and assisting in the administration of the unit.
