Training (Summer)

Cadet Summer Training Courses (CSTC) are of 2, 3 or 6 weeks duration and are usually conducted at Cadet Summer Training Centres that reside on Canadian Forces Bases across Canada.

General Training¬†– The ‘General’ level of training courses are intended to provide Cadets with a rudementary introduction to life at a summer training centre and to the various streams within the Cadet program.

Basic Training¬†– The ‘Basic’ level of training courses are intended to provide Cadets with a basic introduction to the specialty streams in the Cadet program.

Advanced Training¬†– The ‘Advanced’ level of training courses are intended to provide Cadets with a thorough immersion in the specialty streams in the Cadet program.

The Cadets taking a course receive a training bonus of $10 per day for each day of training they complete (to a weekly maximum of $60 per week, and a course maximum of $360). Depending on the course and CSTC, this may be paid upon completion of the course, or portions of the bonus may be paid during the course.

The Cadets employed as Staff Cadets are paid a daily rate, based on their rank at the Summer Training Centre. As of the summer of 2012, the lowest rate was $70 per day.
