    • Welcome Letter
    • Sea Bag List
    • Transportation Information

Attending Trainings

Once you have been accepted for a training you will be sent information about attendance, including the check-in procedure.

It is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that you READ and FOLLOW the specified instructions for check-in, since these procedures vary widely from location to location and training to training.  It is not unheard of for cadets who arrive and have not followed instructions to be denied check-in.  You have been warned!

One feature common to EVERY training is that the cadet must bring their Service Jacket with them; it will be returned to them at the end of the training.  The cadet should obtain their Service Jacket at the drill immediately preceding the training.  If this is not possible for any reason, contact the CO as soon as possible so alternate provision can be made. Upon completion of the training, the service jacket will be returned unopened at the next drill.
