The Application Process

To apply, there are three things you must do:

– Complete the Cadet Application
– Nominate your Mentor
– Attend an Orientation

You can attend an orientation before, during, or after you have completed the application.


In the front of the application packet there is a CHECKLIST. That checklist is designed to make sure you get and send all the completed and signed forms, and COPIES of the documents, that we need!

Your application won’t be considered complete until we have ALL these documents. And, depending on circumstances, this phase could take a few weeks, so start right away!
