Standardized MCC Training Protocol


As a Ministry formatted as a service organization, the Medical Cadet Corps/MCC requires its members to undergo constant training, certification and recertification. The standard for MCC training is theory and practical application. Training is the vital link to MCC credibility, strength, and accomplishment of “Mission” as it follows risk management protocols.  The first and ongoing training is to develop in each cadet up the ranks, a clear and ongoing mindset of committed service, honor, and duty.


MCC Training is designed to be a purposeful and process oriented with every member of the Corps undertaking training modalities that qualify them for honorable field serve. Training is not to be haphazard; it is designed with procedural protocols that our brigade must follow.
