5-weeks of summer training activities!
Cadets will be able to take five weeks of distance learning activities during the summer, for about two to three hours per week. The choice of the 22 activities is posted in the Virtual CTC Catalogue on the Cadets Canada Facebook Notes, and can also be viewed as a PDF.
Registration for these activities will open on Monday, 29 June at 1100hrs EST and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Applications received before this time will not be accepted. In order for cadets to register for these activities, Cadets will need to send an email to their Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) at the email address below, with the following information:
• Last Name
• First Name
• Corps / Squadron Number
• Corps / Squadron element
• Name of the activity you wish to register for.
• Dates of serial you wish to register for.
• The language you would like the activity delivered in;
• Phone number (will be used as a second factor authentication for your online account)

Cadets must send an email with the above information to the following address: RCSU Northwest,
Cadets’ email must be send from their personal email address or an email that they can access. A parent email, that the cadet cannot access, should not be used.
Cadets may apply for up to three different choices. Please clearly rank your selections in order of desire/priority in your email. Cadets may be registered in more than one course concurrently, but additional registrations will depend on overall demand and individual course demand.
For the music course, music level testing will be available at the end of the summer.
All courses are open to all elements (i.e. an Air Cadet can take the Naval Communications Course).
Course badges will not be awarded for these Virtual CTC courses.
Cadets will be contacted once they are loaded on an activity, and provided instructions on how to log in to the learning tools required to participate in the activity.
