The Officer Cadets Orientation Course was introduced with effect from 1 January 2006. The OCO will now be a pre-requisite for enrolling as an Officer Cadet as well as attending the Basic Officers Training Course (BOTC). The OCO course is to ensure that minimally, volunteers are equipped with the ethos, operations and recent development of the BB and updates on the MOE’s guidelines for Uniformed Groups.



 What can I learn?

  1. A deeper appreciation of the purpose and the work that the BB is doing.
  2. An understanding of what the BB expects of me as a BB Officer.
  3. How to operate an effective BB Company.
  4. New friends from other BB Companies whom you can network and share ideas with! 



All applicants need to have the endorsement from the Company Captain and Chaplain.


The OCO is also compulsory for those who are already an Officer Cadet prior to 1 January 2006, although they can still retain their rank.


IMPORTANT: There will be no refund of course fees or deferment of course. Applicants should consider carefully your commitment to the course prior to registration. Registration form will only be accepted upon receipt of payment.
