The latest edition of this top-selling Army Cadet Force Basic Training Handbook delivers all the key information needed as part of your basic cadet training from the NEW Army Cadet Syllabus (ACS). This cadet training book is crucial for all new members looking for advice and guidance. It's also valuable for cadet instructors who want to brush up on their teaching skills. This useful manual includes:

  • Completely updated for 2022 with variations and additional content from the Army Cadet Syllabus (ACS)
  • Includes test sheets, lesson plans & checklists for basic training tests
  • Divided into twelve clearly defined chapters (including illustrations and data)
  • Combines information from multiple sources into a single handy guide
  • Peer reviewed and thoroughly tested at detachment level across the UK
  • Full colour with 108 pages of specially created photos

This handbook does not attempt to replace the official manuals, but is instead a handy comprehensive reference. Written by an experienced CFAV with years of ACF experience, the Army Cadet Force Basic Training Handbook (ACS) is designed to be taken home between parade nights. This enables recruits to learn while away from the unit environment. Professionally produced, the names and locations of source materials are also provided for cadet instructors to enable regular reviews of information. Will fit into a smock or combat trouser pocket. The handbook provides an excellent means of standardising basic training at detachment level and above. This cadet training manual additionally includes cadet lessons from all APC basic training subjects.
