Thirty-six cadets from the Barbados Cadet Corps (BCC) are currently undertaking an All Arms Drill Instructor Course at HMBS PELICAN, Spring Garden, St. Michael.
The aim of the two-week course, which started on Monday, August 20, is to teach the senior cadets how to effectively use Methods of Instructions in relation to the Drill Phraseology and how to become competent drill instructors.
Those cadets participating in the course have attained the rank of Detachment Sergeant Major (DSM) or Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO).
A closing ceremony will be held this Saturday, September 1, at St. Ann’s Fort, Headquarters, Barbados Defence Force, Garrison, St. Michael, beginning at 4:00 p.m. The Reviewing Officer will be Lieutenant Colonel Errol Brathwaite, the Commandant of the BCC.
During the ceremony, the students will be afforded an opportunity to display their new-found skills and their outstanding performances will be recognised.
