SUMMER TRAINING INFORMATION

Updated 26 June 2020

VIRTUAL SUMMER TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

From virtual seminars to health and fitness challenges, cadets are encouraged to remain active and engaged as we move into the summer period.

This summer three Virtual Cadet Training Centres will help deliver exciting challenges and activities for cadets. Throughout the summer they will offer different opportunities for cadets to further develop both personal and cadet skills in a new, virtual setting.

Cadets will have the opportunities to participate in flexible, voluntary training opportunities either independently at their own pace or in facilitated sessions. This summer will be about engagement and flexibility while continuing to focus on the cadet experience.

5 Weeks of Summer Training Activities

Cadets will be able to take five weeks of distance learning activities during the summer, consisting of about 2-3 hours per week. The choice of the 22 activities is the same as those offered on the "Cadet Activities" portal on the Extranet and posted on the Cadet Learning / Apprentissage des cadets Facebook page, and detailed in the Virtual CTC course Schedule.

Registration for these activities will open on Monday, 29 June at 1100hrs EST and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

In order for cadets to register for these activities, Cadets will need to send an email to their Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) with the following information:

  • Last Name
  • First Name
  • Squadron Number & Element (800 Air)
  • Name of the activity you wish to register for
  • Dates of serial you wish to register for
  • The language you would like the activity delivered in
  • Phone number (will be used as a second-factor authentication for your online account)
  • An email address that the cadet has access to; and
  • Instrument selection for cadets registering for the music course

Cadets must send their sign-up email to the following address:
RCSUCentral@Cadets.gc.ca

Cadets’ email must be sent from their personal email address or from an email that they can access.  A parent email, that the cadet cannot access, should not be used.

Cadets will be contacted once they are loaded on an activity, and provided instructions on how to log in to the learning tools required to participate in the activity.


Additional Tools and Resources

Here are the new resources and tools available to take advantage of these new opportunities:

You will find here a list of activities to suggest to your cadets grouped under several themes: healthy living, financial awareness, construction activities, citizenship, cyber & media awareness and Do-It-Yourself activities (DIY).  These are all individual activities and are self-paced.

This Facebook page is designed to share the latest news on the activities available on extranet and maximize participation. On this page, surveys are also posted online to find out what cadets think about their favourite activities. This page is bilingual.

Throughout the summer, the page will follow cadet summer training as a CTC page would.  https://www.facebook.com/CdtLearning/


The National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group takes pride in delivering high-quality training and experiences where youth lead youth, and this summer is no different – staff cadets and adult leaders selected for summer training will continue to work at delivering unique and challenging online experiences for our Cadets, in a new virtual environment. These same staff will be responsible for facilitating and following up with cadets during their training.

We thank you, once again, for your patience, resilience and understanding in these unprecedented times.
