About Us

The Cadet Corps is a youth development organisation with cadet membership reserved for both male and female high school students between the ages of 12 and 17. The programme has full time members of staff but is mostly made up from enthusiastic volunteers of a cross section of the Caymanian community, and who serve in the adult officer and NCO ranks.
The cadet programme is based on the British ACF 4-star progressive training system, with the requisite subjects being available at all four star levels.
A cadet who serves four years in the Corps and completes the entire 4-star programme gains an Army Proficiency Certificate (APC) at each level.
The Cayman Islands Cadet Corps is working with the Cadet Vocational Qualification office in the UK to add a vocational training element that will result in qualified cadets gaining the BTEC First Diploma in Public Service, which is equivalent to passes in four subjects at the GCSE level.

The Cayman Islands Cadet Corps (CICCorps) is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. It prepares them for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as Caymanians. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community and country. It was established in March 2002.
The main objectives of the CICC are defined in its Charter, Vision and Mission Statement.


The Cayman Island Cadet Corps is a National Voluntary Youth organization. It is sponsored by the Governor’s office and administered by a local Headquarters led by the Commandant. The Cadet Corps was originally operated by the Ministry of Education, with assistance from the RCIP, and provides challenging military style, adventurous and community activities. The Corps is currently under remit of the Ministry of Health, Youth, Sports & Culture.



The Cayman Islands Cadet Corps (CICC) aims to inspire young people to achieve success in life with a spirit of service to God the Almighty, the Sovereign, the Cayman Islands and their community, and to develop in them the qualities required of a good citizen.



In order to achieve what has been stated in our Vision, the CICC has laid out the following mission statements.

The CICC will:

a. Provide progressive cadet training, of a challenging and exciting nature, to foster confidence, self-reliance, initiative, responsibility, loyalty, self-respect, alertness, physical and mental endurance and camaraderie.

b. Encourage the development of personal powers of practical leadership and the ability to work successfully as a member of a team.

c. Stimulate cadets using military discipline, skills, achievements and values.

d. Encourage cadets to develop their spiritual and moral values.

e. The CICC will motivate and encourage our cadets to strongly believe that they can follow any career path they desire, however, training in the Corps will be an asset to those considering a career in the Police, Fire and Prison services or the Immigration Department.
