SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATH
STEM Training creates an atmosphere that is interactive, challenging, and fun. The Seaperch Build allows Cadets to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in a team oriented environment. Cadets will be challenged on how well they follow directions, retain information, and work with fellow shipmates.
Cadets are expected to arrive knowing the following:
11 General Orders of the Sentry
Sea Cadet Oath
Academic Requirements: Cadets will be evaluated based off of exams, inspections, assignments, and observation. They must have a grade point average of at least 80% and must score an 80% on the final exam in order to graduate. All Cadets must successfully complete the Seaperch Build. The more the cadets know before they arrive, the more time they will get to participate in additional enjoyable activities. Cadets are expected to put forth 100% effort in all areas of training. Cadets who are in an unsatisfactory status will not participate in field trips or “fun” evolutions, but will remain in the classroom for remedial training.
Physical Preparation: All cadets will be required to take the Physical Readiness Test upon arrival. The NSCC Minimum Physical Fitness Standards are listed in the NSCC/NLCC Advancement and Training Manual in Appendix 3. Cadets will be expected to meet all of these minimum standards in order to successfully graduate from STEM Training. We will be conducting physical fitness training daily. This will include group runs, 1-2 miles in length, and upper and lower body conditioning workouts. If cadets are not physically prepared they are likely to get injured. If you get injured and cannot participate in Academy training, you will be sent home without graduating. We take your well-being very seriously and cannot risk further injury by allowing you to stay. START TRAINING NOW!
Sea Bag/Attire: Cadets will arrive with a complete seabag per list provided. Civilian attire will not be allowed between check in and graduation. If cadets do not have their basic uniform articles, they will be expected to purchase it. This includes costly items such as running shoes. Cadets may bring extra uniform/personal items as needed for warmth and comfort, but the item must be on the seabag list! Be sure to break in any new shoes or boots prior to training.
Spending Money: Cadets should have sufficient spending money to cover their personal needs, souvenirs and snacks. Approximately $50 - $100.00 is recommended for personal expenses. Cadets may bring a credit card or debit card for use at the Post Exchange (PX), but a minimum of $25 cash is required for supply purchases. Cadets will be responsible for safeguarding any monies or cards.
Contraband: Cadets are NOT to bring or have in their possession ANY type of weapon, alcohol or tobacco product. Any such violation of this policy will result in your being sent home immediately and without question. Further disciplinary action may also be taken. If it is not on the seabag list, DO NOT BRING IT.
Cameras: Cadets may bring a disposable/inexpensive camera to training. However, the Combined Training Contingent Staff will not be responsible for any cameras lost, damaged or stolen. Cadets may not use their cell phone as a camera.
Graduation is tentatively scheduled for 1100 on Saturday 1 August aboard Camp Pendleton. Visit this site for updates.
