Basic Parade Drill, Dress & Deportment Training Camp

Dear Members;


After the Line of Duty Service for Constable Davidson, we have heard from a lot of you about the desire to have some basic understanding of drill, dress and deportment for these types of events.  I am pleased to announce that the APBC/EDBC Ceremonial Unit will host a one day training session to provide some training on the above topics.

When: Wednesday February 7th, 2018

Time:   0900 – 1600

Where: Cloverdale Agriplex, 17607 – 62nd Ave, Surrey BC

Open To: Any BCAS/ECOMM employee (union and management)

What to wear: Navy T-shirt, duty pants, black belt & duty belt (if you don’t wear a uniform, then comfortable clothes and shoes as you will be on your feet most of the day)

What to bring: Lunch, snacks, water, your dress uniform (to get feedback on how to put it together) a good attitude and a wiliness to learn some basic concepts. 

What to expect: The APBC/EDBC Ceremonial Unit Executive and Honour Guard members (who have current members and veterans of the Canadian Forces) will provide you with basic training in accordance with established standards (CFP 201), employer policy and nationally accepted protocols on formal parades.  This will be conducted in an environment that recognizes there will be various degrees of experience, from none to expert.

If you are interested, please confirm your attendance at: with “basic drill training” in the subject line.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, hope to see you there.

In Honour,
