First Class Cadet Brassard Badge

Do you know who invented the jet engines, how to pitch a tent or how to tell someone precisely where you are? By the time you’ve completed your 1st Class Training you’ll know all of this and far more.

Having successfully completed your Junior Cadet training you’ll then start working towards your 1st Class Cadet badge. The 1st Class Cadet training is varied and interesting, covering 6 subjects.

  • The Royal Air Force
  • Initial Expedition Training
  • Map Reading
  • History of Flight
  • Airmanship
  • Basic Radio Communications

Around this time you’ll also get to handle and fire a rifle for the first time and be taught basic first aid.
It’s your most exciting time in the Cadets as you’ll be learning lots of new things, making plenty of new friends and taking part in exciting activities.

You can find the syllabus for each of the subjects in our resources section.

After you’ve completed your 1st Class Training, you’ll train to be a Leading Cadet.
