Why should I care about training and advancement?


Successful units gain their reputations for excellence by actively pursuing opportunities for their cadets. Motivating and rewarding activities and training opportunities that catch and retain the cadets’ attention are essential to the operation of a successful unit. Advanced training provides many exciting opportunities away from the unit for cadets, but these opportunities are only available for a few months of the year. Cadet decisions regarding citizenship traits and character will be made at the unit level, based on the experiences and role modeling that the unit provides. That is why unit training is so important; these experiences are the source of unit growth.
