Within Central Region, a network of Unit Public Affairs Representatives (UPARs) and Cadet Correspondents is maintained to support unit/regional/national cadet activities. Cadet Correspondents tell the story of the Squadron by managing social media, creating content, and drafting products for the approval of the Sqn CO.
Central Region will be conducting two distance learning serials of the Cadet Correspondent Course which will be a combination of virtual and self-paced activities over a period of 5 weeks. Serials will be virtual, instructor-led over a 5-week period with weekly assignments
completed independently. Instructors will be available to support participants and assess submitted homework. This training will be hosted on Cadets 365. Cadets will be required to attend one weekly instructional session for the duration of the course and must contact the instructor in the event of an absence to access the recording.
