Not to be confused with Classification.

As a new cadet you won't know who does what, who to salute, who to call Sir or Ma'am or who to listen to. This section will give you some information and help make some sense of the various ranks you will find.

The Air Training Corps follows a rank structure very similar to the Armed Forces - this is in place to give a structure to the Organisation.

Promotion in the ATC is based on an individuals qualities including (but not limited to) leadership, initiative and participation in events.

There are rank systems for both cadets and adults.
