Cadets are required to attend at least one weekend field training exercise a year as it is part of their mandatory training to pass their level.

Included in a FTX is multiple mandatory and compulsory classes that are a part of their cadet training that can’t otherwise be taught at the unit on a Wednesday evening. This makes attendance at these weekends so important because it is impossible to replicate some of the lessons taught inside the classroom. Cadets will learn survival skills such as: shelter building, how to collect water, how to build a fire and signal fires, map and compass and many more.

The upcoming FTX details are:
