Looking for a fresh opportunity to enhance your career and grow your repertoire of professional skill sets? March 11, 2022 is the deadline to submit your application to become a Conduct After Capture Instructor (CACI) in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

“I have not had a job that has given me as much of a sense of reward and fulfillment as that of a Conduct After Capture Instructor.” – MCpl Ho Leung, CACI at the Conduct After Capture Training Centre (CAC TC).

Why become a CACI? MCpl Leung tells us why he did.

“I wanted to become a Conduct After Capture Instructor because of the uniqueness of the subject matter and the specialized training that I would receive. You train CAF personnel that are deemed at risk of a potential captivity situation.” 

As a CACI, you will develop a unique set of skills that will benefit the CAF and help you gain professional development opportunities. You will be part of a unique, small team environment conducting resistance and resilience training.

While further COVID-19 restrictions may impact the ability of the CAC TC to conduct activities as planned, at this time all potential CACIs will undergo selection and screening in April 2022. This is to ensure that only those with suitable abilities will move on to the instructor course in the fall of 2022.

What can candidates who are selected for the instructor course expect?

“The Conduct After Capture Level C course is one week long, where candidates will conduct practical conduct after capture training. It is demanding both mentally and physically and I was challenged throughout the entire course. I gained practical skills that are not only applicable to conduct after capture situations, but that I can use for the rest of my career regardless of where I am employed in the CAF.”- MCpl Ho Leung

The screening process is open to minimum ranks of Cpl/S1 (for non-commissioned members (NCMs)), or Lt/SLt (for officers). All candidates must be occupationally-qualified, and NCM candidates must have successfully completed their Primary Leadership Qualification course.

CAC TC will hold virtual recruiting sessions on January 13, 20 and 27 at the following times:
