  1. CANCDTGEN 008/21, Direction on COATS Promotion in Response to COVID-19
  2. CJCR Gp Order 5511-1, Promotions – Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Service Members
  3. DAOD 2020-3, Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Service
  1. The Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers Group (CJCR Gp) National Training Establishment (NTE) has resumed training of Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Service (COATS) members at near pre-pandemic levels. This allows the NTE to offer required training to those COATS members who were previously unable to obtain necessary career courses during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, effective immediately, reference A is cancelled.
  2. All COATS members who were granted an acting/lacking promotion as a result of reference A, are required to obtain the missing qualification within three years from the date of promotion, in accordance with reference B.
  3. A member who was granted an acting/lacking promotion rank in accordance with reference A will have their date of seniority adjusted to the date of promotion to the acting/lacking rank once the required course is completed and the promotion becomes substantive.
  4. Members seeking to obtain missing qualifications are to contact their Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) for course nomination information. A training schedule of all available courses can be found on the COATS Learning and Professional Development Cadet365 SharePoint site (link accessible only on the Cadet365 SharePoint).
  5. Members who have questions regarding the status of their acting/lacking promotion are to contact their RCSU J1 section for individual guidance.
