    • Leadership
    • Drill
    • Instructional Techniques
    • Aviation
    • Aircrew Survival
  • Lt Roberts spoke to each level on the first night and explained that they had evaluations in those subjects. They were also given the opportunity to self-identify if they have adaptations or IPPs at school so that any accommodations could be made.
  • Cadets should be told at the beginning of each class whether the information in the class will be included during an evaluation and ideally, the date of that evaluation.
  • As well, there is a 3-month schedule out for the cadets to see and check every week. It will have any evaluations (PCs) that the cadets have written as “408 PC or Aviation PC”.
  • If cadets have questions regarding evaluations they should bring it up to the training staff through the chain of command. That would be: level staff cadet -> level officer -> training officer.
  • If parents have questions, they can contact the staff by emailing the squadron.
