Upon completion of summer training, as well as co-op assignments, cadets will be granted up to 2 high school credits.

Although the program is run in partnership with the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) cadets do not need to be from UCDSB, nor will they become UCDSB students. Cadets from any Ontario school board can participate. They remain students of their own board. A report card will be mailed to the cadet and their main school upon successful completion, where the school will then enter the credit on the cadet’s transcript. UCDSB will provide and assign participating cadets with a co-op teacher for the summer semester.
