National Civil Defence Cadet Corps (NCDCC) Cadet Lieutenants and Honorary Officers

National Civil Defence Cadet Corps (NCDCC) Cadet Lieutenants and Honorary Officers

The National Civil Defence Cadet Corps (NCDCC) Cadet Lieutenants and Honorary Officers schemes allow former NCDCC cadets to assist Teacher Officers to train current NCDCC cadets in secondary schools.

If you were an NCDCC cadet in secondary school or have expertise to contribute, you can give back by sharing your knowledge and providing training, guidance and moral support to the next generation of cadets. You will help develop and empower our youths to be active and equip them with life-saving skills.

The NCDCC Cadet Lieutenant (CLT) scheme is for youths studying in tertiary institutions such as ITE, polytechnics and junior colleges, while the NCDCC Honorary Officers (HO) scheme is for adults who may be working or pursuing further studies.

I take pride in working with the regular officers, PNSFs, PNSmen and civilian staff to maintain law and order, and to keep Singapore safe. I also enjoy interacting with members of the public during our patrols and roadshows. I feel I am part of a larger family and this keeps inspiring me to do my best.
