YEAR END TRAINING INFORMATION

If you have any questions in regards to not receiving your level badge or a promotion, please come down this evening and we will answer your questions.  Level 3 and 4 comes down to the evaluations of leadership, drill, IT, and the aviation exam – if you were not successful in ones or more than you will need to complete them in the fall.  Level 1 and 2 – your overall attendance plays a role, as well as being at a marksmanship/range day and the survival exercises.

If you did not receive your level badge, this is one reason for not being promoted as well as there is a minimum of 5 months time in your current rank before being eligible for the next rank.

Absences

Remember you must phone in if you are going to be absent for any mandatory training night.

Phone: 780-450-8103

Clearly leave your rank, full name, and date & reason for your absence
