Civil Defence Emergency Management Cadet Unit will provide young people in our District with an exciting opportunity to gain valuable skills, earn NZQA credits and get involved in the community in a fun and engaging way.
Waimakariri's Civil Defence Emergency Management Cadet Unit is the first of its kind in the country, running alongside other youth and cadet programmes in our district such as Air Training Corps, St Johns cadets and more.
The newly established programme for young people aged 12-17 provides training in Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) and skills from partner emergency service agencies. It is a joint venture between Waimakariri's Civil Defence Emergency Management and Youth Development teams.
During the term of the programme, CDEM Cadets will learn foundation emergency services skills, earn NZQA credits for Civil Defence and emergency service related training, and get involved with volunteering opportunities in their local community. They will get a taste of how rewarding a future career in emergency services and volunteering can be.
The 2020 programme will commmence in February. Cadets will train weekly on a Tuesday night from 6pm - 8pm and also have the opportunity to attend weekend camps throughout the year.
For the 2020 programme, there will be 10 spaces available.
After submitting an application, prospective cadets will be contacted and interviewed as part of the process. As numbers are limited for our initial intake, anyone who misses out will be added to a wait-list with potential to join the Unit during the year if anyone leaves the programme.
Applications are now closed for the 2020 Cadet Programme. Keep an eye on the latest news here and on our Facebook page for future intake details.
