The Air Cadet League was successful in implementing a program for the British Columbia Cadets whereby certain courses within the Cadet program will qualify for Educational credits. This is a very worthwhile program as it allows cadets to acquire additional credits, which apply towards high school graduation.
The Minister of Education approved a revision to the Graduation Credits Order to include credits for training received in Cadets. Cadets may obtain up to eight (8) credits towards Secondary School graduation. Four (4) credits may be obtained at Grade 11 by successfully completing Level Four squadron training, or an approved six-week summer training course, and four (4) credits may be earned at Grade 12 for successfully completing Level Five squadron training, or an approved six-week summer training course. Employment as a Staff Cadet may be used as an alternative to a summer training course.
