It's time to begin...
Welcome to the coursework page. While we may not like the coursework, completing it means that we will be one step closer to promotion.
Embrace the challenge and get it done!
Why to I need to do coursework?
In order to advance (get promoted) in the Sea Cadet Program you need four things;
2. Time in rate.
4. Pass the physical readiness test.
At Wolverine Division we want to make sure that you succeed. Along with the Training Officer we have a Senior Cadet PO1 or CPO who will help guide you through the coursework. Remember they do not replace your Squadron Leader they are an additional resource for you.
Where do I find the coursework?
Go to this website:
Once there click on the TRAINING tab in the banner at the top of the page:
Then click on this photo of the CPO pinning that says:

Where do I put the answers?
All assignments need to be completed and submitted on an answer grid. Be sure to complete the grid carefully, if it is difficult to read or missing information is will be returned to you ungraded:
League Cadets - homeport.seacadets.org/HomeportDownloads/Library/334/NSCTNG029.pdf?id=432023873940857
Sea Cadets - homeport.seacadets.org/HomeportDownloads/Library/333/nsctng028.pdf?id=432023873940857
Which book do I do first?
Sea Cadets you start with the correspondence course entitled Basic Military Requirements (BMR). The BMR must be completed before you will be allowed to attend recruit training so it is important that this coursework be completed as soon as possible.
League Cadets you start with Part 1 of the NLCC syllabus.
Completed assignments should be turned in as you complete them so that they can be graded. Passing grades results will be posted on our closed facebook page.
What happens if I don't pass an assignment?
If you do not pass an assignment the Training PO/CPO will reach out to you and work with you to discover where you are having difficulties. You will continue the course you are on and will need to review and re-submit the assignment that you failed at the end of the course. Remember the coursework is an open book exercise - read carefully, make sure you ask if you have questions and you should not need to retake an assignments.
