History of The Cadet Instructors Cadre - CIC Branch

CIC Branch

In 1987, a Cadet Instructor Branch Advisory Committee (then known as Cadet Instructors List) was officially created, providing representation in Ottawa for CIC officers. CFAO 2-10 states as follows: "Personnel branches were created to enable members of the Canadian Forces in related occupations to identify with each other in cohesive professional groups. These groups are based on similarity of military roles, customs and traditions".

From 2000-2002, a job analysis was performed by the Directorate of Cadets to better understand the duties and responsibilities of CIC Officers. This led to the design and development of a new course structure where training is for the position, rather than for promotion. The course content is more relevant to the role of CIC officers in the 21st century, including topics such as adolescent development, ethics and advanced instructional techniques, resulting in a more robust and up-to-date training program. The first course, the CIC Basic Officer Training Course (BOTC) was launched in 2009. It mirrors the relative parts of all Basic Officer Training to introduce new members of the CF to the military ethos. Other courses will be introduced progressively over time.

Famous quotes containing the word branch:

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
