Rank Structure



Young people who have begun their 2nd year of Secondary School (Year 8) and are under 16 3/4 years old can join the ATC. They are initially given the title ‘Junior Cadet’ and can go along to most meetings to get a feel for the ATC.

The staff who run the ATC at unit level are of 3 types: commissioned officers, senior NCOs and civilian instructors (CIs).


Is 16 and 3/4 correct? I thought it was up to 17 6?


Don’t know for sure. If you can find a source go ahead and change it. That’s the beauty of the wiki :wink:
