Cadet Centre for Adventure Training (CCAT) COURSES

The Cadet Centre for Adventurous Training (CCAT) is established to deliver Adventurous Training (AT) qualification and experience courses for Cadet Force Adults Volunteers (CFAV’s) and Senior Cadets aged 16+ from the Army Cadet Force (ACF) and Combined Cadet Force (CCF).

We offer a wide range of challenging, inspirational, progressive and safely managed courses at all levels from basic Foundation through to Intermediate and Leader/Instructor qualifications through both the Joint Service and Nationally accredited schemes.

We provide a unique pathway for CFAV’s to gain National Governing Body (NGB) accredited Hill Walking, Mountaineering, Rock Climbing, Trail Cycling, Skiing and Paddlesport qualifications with the intention of creating an increasing nucleus of AT qualified instructors/leaders with the skills and experience to deliver safe, fun and progressive activities within the ACF and CCF.

The Senior Cadets (16+) can embark on a pathway to gain a basic Foundation and Intermediate skills qualification in Summer, Winter and Alpine Mountaineering, Rock Climbing, Winter Climbing, Caving, Open Canoeing, Kayaking (Sea & Inland) and Skiing.

We also use overseas bases to deliver a range of fantastic courses in Germany, France, Norway, Spain and Switzerland.
