    Hi, I joined my cadet division around 3 years ago now. I just called and emailed to see if they could take me and they were pretty quick, but some divisions don't respond quickly so you might have to chase them up on it from what I've heard elsewhere. You get your first aid training, and you have to be re-validated every year so you keep practising so you don't forget. You get to know everyone there and there's courses and opportunities to be a leader or have a higher rank in your cadet division and work your way up. Sometimes, we're just doing arts and craft or learning basic sign language or road safety and it's not first aid every week but it's fun. Plus you get to go on duties. As for cost, the main cost is travel, getting to where you need to go and duties you pick can sometimes be quite far, so you have to pay for bus/train etc...

    I'm applying for medicine and I think it's definitely given me something to talk about and learn from, and even if you don't want to be a doctor, learning first aid is never a bad thing right Hope this helped.
