RMC Environment Preparation Training
Posted on May 20, 2014

On Sunday the 27th of April 2014, 25 Armoured Officer Cadets (OCdts) from the Royal Military College of Canada travelled from Kingston to Garrison Petawawa to spend the week with A Squadron (Sqn), of the Royal Canadian Dragoons (RCD). The intent of the week was to provide a venue for the students to refresh their Armoured skills, in preparation of their summer training period. The RMC students conduct the vast majority of their military training in the summer months, which consequently means that they experience a substantial skill fade from year to year.
