If you still wish to become a cadet after the orientation event, your application will be reviewed and a security check completed.
If your first choice unit is full, we will proceed with your second choice. If you only want your first choice, you will be placed on a waiting list until a place becomes available.
Upon the successful completion of security checks you will be invited to the first session of the cadet unit and welcomed in as a new cadet. If you do not pass the security checks we will write or email to you to let you know.
