Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. - Today, Royal Military College Saint-Jean (RMC Saint-Jean) held its traditional Obstacle Course, which is the culmination of the Orientation Programme and marks the official welcoming of the new officer cadets into the Cadet Wing.

"More than 140 officer cadets participated in the 2012 edition of the Obstacle Course, which is composed of 12 distinct obstacles,” explains Colonel Guy Maillet, Commandant of the Royal Military College Saint-Jean. “This Obstacle Course, which challenges the participants' endurance and team spirit, will make for unforgettable memories."

More than a physical challenge, the Obstacle Course demands the participants' analysis, quick reactions, as well as efficient management of resources, time, and effort. The Obstacle Course develops teamwork, determination, endurance and perseverance.

Following the Obstacle Course, officer cadets received their College badge during a parade, officially becoming part of the Cadet Wing.

The mission of Royal Military College Saint-Jean is to educate duly selected CAF members in order to instil them with the competencies required to maintain excellence in the profession of arms.
