On the final day of this weekend, seven of the adults, who have attended previous weekend training, passed their final assessment on the Intermediate Induction Course. All were presented with a new rank slide of PI Sgt. Their next course will be the Advanced Induction Course (AIC) which will qualify them as Sgt Instructors. Well done everyone! ⬇
