In the Primers Programme, changing of rank is an automated system. This means that in your first year as a Primer (typically 17 years old), you will hold the rank of a Cadet Lieutenant (CLT). In your second year, you will become a Senior Cadet Lieutenant (SCL). This rank holds for your third / fourth year in the Primers Programme if you are schooling in a Polytechnic.

 

However, please do note that Captains are also given the authority to hold the promotion of your rank based on the Company’s discretion of certain criteria set by your company are not met.

For Boys/Male Officers, the haircut should be neat, and should not cover the ears and eyebrows. Hair should be just above the collar at the back. No artificial colouration of hair is allowed and no body ornaments such as earrings should be worn.

 

For female Primers/Officers, the haircut should be neat with no loud colouring. Long hair should be neatly tied up.
