Part 1 - Basic Training.
The training received at this stage of a cadet's CCF (RAF) career is very important. It will help cadets fit into the Section quickly and prepare them for all future CCF activities. Training consists of drill, military knowledge, map and compass, shooting and safety, fieldcraft, airmanship and basic first aid. Successful completion of this stage of training leads to the award of the First Class Cadet badge.
Part 2 - Leading Cadet Training.
Cadets complete training in Principles of Flight, Basic Navigation and Airmanship. A combination of classroom basic activities and outdoor practical training prepares our cadets to meet the standards set down by HQ Air Cadets.
Successful completion of this stage of training leads to the award of the leading cadet badge.
Part 3 - Advanced Training.
Advanced training allows cadets to focus on an aviation subject in greater detail. Cadets at MGS take a course in Advanced Air Navigation as well as training that will enable them to take on responsibility for organising and running various section activities. Successful completion of this stage leads to the award of the senior cadet badge.
Part 4 - Instructor Cadet
On completion of an NCO Cadre cadets are also eligible for the award of the instructor cadet lanyard.
