Basic Cadet   Training

Next Basic Cadet Training (BCT):  11 March 2024

Welcome to Basic Cadet Training. Designed to train and prepare cadets for CAP cadet life.

The Cadets will meet every Monday from 1800 (6:00pm) to 2100 (9:00pm). Very early in their program the cadets will train in leadership and physical fitness leading to testing for promotion at the end of the program. During this program the Cadets will take on CAP's core values that will build and strengthen the cadets as they develop their discipline and leadership skills

Joining Civil Air Patrol is a commitment not just a year-round program. The mentoring and training skills that you will learn through programs such as Leadership, Character Development, Drills and Ceremonies, and Aerospace will help to propel you into a future of great maturity and responsibility. 

To inquire about membership as a Cadet you must be between the ages of 12 and up to 18 years old.

Parents and cadets contact MSgt Risinger, the Assistant Deputy Commander for Cadets at for more information.
