Aim. Is to provide Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs) with the knowledge and confidence to deliver fieldcraft training to 3 and 4 star (or CCF(A) equivalent) cadets.
Qualification. This course does not result in a qualification and results in no eligibility for promotion at this time.
Course Outline. The course is 5 days long and concentrates on the planning of fieldcraft lessons for the 3 and 4 star syllabus, giving experience to CFAVs and improving knowledge. This will include ambushes, section and platoon attacks, orders, patrolling, defence and delay operations and the Safe System of Training. This course is being trialled in 2016 and will be further developed. Location and course content may be subsequently changed.
Eligibility. The course is open to all CFAVs; adult instructors and officers. Candidates must have attended the Adult Induction (AIC) or the CCF Basic (Qualifying) course, or have been exempted due to previous Regular or Reserve service.
