Green star

As a cadet advances through their training career, they will progress through several star levels. Green star is the first star level and serves as an introduction to the mandatory training that will be conducted at the corps. It is designed to give the cadet basic skills and knowledge such as drill, basic discipline, fundamental training, and so on

Red star

Red Star is designed to reinforce and expand upon the Green Star program. Training continues in drill, fundamentals, bush craft, map and compass, marksmanship, public speaking, leadership, citizenship and physical fitness. As a Red Star qualified cadet, you are the model for new cadets and are fully capable of demonstrating skills to recruits and Green Star cadets.

Silver Star is basic training for new leaders and instructors. Cadets who complete Silver Star will have the knowledge, skill and experience to take on new responsibilities as a leader of a small team. A Silver Star qualified cadet will have mastered almost all of the mandatory skill training of the Army Cadet Program. The Silver Star cadets will also attend an expedition weekend in the spring where they will participate in a team training activity, consisting of mountain biking, hiking, map and compass navigation, basic expedition skills and canoeing.

Gold Star training expands on all previous training, and contains a significant amount of theoretical study and learning. Most of their training involves planning and conducting activities. Gold Star cadets are expected to lead and instruct cadets from senior positions within the corps. The Gold Stars attend an expedition training weekend in the fall, where they will expand upon the knowledge learned during the silver expedition weekend. Once a cadet has successfully completed gold expedition training, they are eligible to apply for the regional expeditions, including white water rafting on the Petawawa River, Sea Kayaking on Georgian Bay or Dog Sledding in Northern Ontario (to name a few). A regional expedition is required to apply for the domestic and international expeditions.
