High School Credit Opportunity for Cadet Summer Training (Co-op)

The Cadet Summer Training High School Credit program enables Central Region cadets participating in certain cadet summer training activities to earn up to two secondary school co-op credits. To be eligible, a cadet must be a registered student at any Ontario Ministry of Education recognized secondary school, must have already completed some secondary school credits (preferably including Career Studies – GLC 20), and must be accepted to one of the following summer training activities at a CTC in Ontario: Staff Cadet, any six-week course, any three-week course, or GPS/ Advanced Aerospace Course in St-Jean QC.

The cadet summer training activity is conducted as normal. To earn credit, cadets must complete some pre-course activities, perform some daily/weekly recording (journaling, log, Blog, personal reflections…) and submit a final project/presentation (power point presentation or similar). While some support will be offered by CTC staff, cadets are responsible for all coop program work and assignments, which must be completed in their free time.

Once cadets are selected and accept an offer of participation, they can apply for the co-op program separately through the UCDSB website.


Summer Training application period has passed.

Back-fills will commence once the original applications have been loaded. Cadets interested in the wait-list can submit a late application.
