- Staff Cadets undergo advanced training which includes being mentored by adult leaders and senior staff cadets. Staff Cadets provide leadership, instruction and support to course Cadets at a Cadet Summer Training Centre (CSTC). Staff Cadets are not employees. Participation by the staff cadet during authorized CSTC summer training constitutes advanced training. Advanced training staff cadets are divided into two distinct categories:
- Type 1: Training; and
- Type 2: Training Support.
Examples of staff cadet assignments include flight staff, administration staff and recreational sports staff. Staff cadets receive an advanced training allocation ranging from $71.00 to $95.00 per day depending on their rank. Cadets applying for staff may not be less than 16 years of age as of the first day of January of the year of advanced training.
