The table below illustrates the rank structure followed by Cadet.
As of around 2010, the Instructor Cadet label was replaced with Staff Cadet, and a yellow lanyard is now worn for cadets who have achieved Master classification and gone on to complete a Methods of Instruction course. Typically, there will only be Staff Cadets of rank Sergeant, Flight Sergeant or Cadet Warrant Officer.
