TRAINING IN A COVID ENVIRONMENT
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE 2021-22 TRAINING YEAR
Last Updated: 18 Sep 2021
While all possible contingencies are being considered, the 2021-22 Training Year is currently predicted to proceed as below. Our goal is to return to in-person training as much, and as soon, as is safely achievable. The transition to in-person training will be gradual, deliberate, and with a focus on safety.
More information on applicable safety policies will be posted here as it is determined. All training will follow applicable public health measures (PHMs) and additional safety policies from the Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) and the National CJCR Support Group.
September will focus on:
Annual Validation of returning members
Processing of New Membership Applications & On-Boarding cadets onto Google Classroom
Online training and events to include:
Info Session for prospective cadets and their parents/guardians
Senior NCO pre-training & re-organization
Other info or training sessions as needed
October to December will focus on:
A return to training beginning 5 October, to include:
A possibility of conducting weekly training online until a large enough facility can be found in which to hold classes for the squadron's ~200 cadets
Weekend in-person training during the day, such as field training exercises and certain extracurricular teams such as drill team and band (pending approval).
January 2022 Onwards may include:
A possible return to weekly in-person mass training, pending a re-opening of school permits
As cadets are onboarded onto Cadet 365, a gradual transition from Google Classroom / Google Meets to Cadet 365 / Microsoft Teams as our primary online platform.
A hybrid approach to the cadet program which sees a return to regular training, while retaining online activities to enhance the program.
