Required Staff Training

Required Staff Training helps leaders reduce the risk of abuse, hazing, harassment, and humiliation at their activity.  It provides examples and non-examples of hazing and illustrates how to create an effective and positive training atmosphere.  Completion of this course is required for staff members (both cadets and senior members) at cadet activities lasting 4 nights or longer.  The commander may, at his or her discretion, excuse a member from RST if the member has completed the training within the past 24 months.  See CAPR 52-16 for details.


 April 2015 The April 2015 CAPP 52-12, Required Staff Training, is now available. The updated course is a 90-minute guided discussion that combines concepts that volunteers learn in Operational Risk Management and Cadet Protection Policy training.  It has a hands-on focus that draws on material from CAPP 52-23, Cadet Protection Policy Implementation Guide, as well as 14 new case studies.  This course replaces the 2002 version of Required Staff Training, and should be used now to train staff members for activities.
