Regular Summer Course
Course Info Pamphlet (2018)
Application will open shortly. In the mean time, decide your top 3 courses now. Note that national target is to have 30% of the cadets to be on summer course. Each squadron is given specific quotas. Once offers are made (in Apr) the quota is used up and may not return even if cancelled. Only apply for courses you intend to accept.

Although no guarantee until course offers are out later this year, it is expected 351 will be assigned "Serial B" dates for 3-week courses and "Serial C" for 2-week course (see pamphlet for dates). Travel day is usually 1 day prior to start of course; and same day as the end of course. This info may assist cadets make their summer plans accordingly.

Cadets must be aware that not completing a level by end of year (e.g. not completing all mandatory training) may lead to course eligibility no longer being satisfied and result in automatic removal from course.
