COURSEWORK, COURSEWORK, COURSEWORK!!
Planning and preparing, it is important to start schedule your time wisely to maintain a good balance of schoolwork and Sea Cadet coursework. Working on it on a regular basis will allow you to take it in smaller pieces over time to get it all done without a lot of grief. Set a personal goal to be able to turn in at least 2 (or more) assignments every drill. This will help put you on the fast track to promote quickly through the program. If there are any issues with coursework that has been submitted be sure to let ADMIN know, but be sure to let you LPO/Division Officer know FIRST!

Do you have your PQS done yet? All cadets should be able to complete Level 1 introduction to PQS within the first three drills after joining. Level 2 PQS is for all cadets to prepare them for recruit training and should be completed before RT if possible and not longer than their first year in the program. If you don’t have them completed, plan on getting them caught up ASAP.
