We have received a large amount of information regarding the summer training program for 2021. It will be conducted virtually, with the possible exception of in-person local Cadet Activity Programs. As with regular summer training courses, there are only a limited number of positions open to us (probably 1-2 for each course). You will be informed if your application is successful. We look at your experience, previous training, behavior (in-person and on-line), among other things, to determine who will be selected.
