The Cadet Training Centre (CTC), Frimley Park is the home of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) and the Army Cadet Force (ACF). Training of all CCF and ACF officers occurs here, as well as much training of cadets including the Cadet Leadership Course (for CCF and ACF), and the Master Cadet Course (run for the ACF).
Frimley's aim is:
|“||The Aim of the Cadet Training Centre, Frimley Park, is to act as the National Centre of Excellence for the Cadet Movement and thus be a source of inspiration and information.||”|
The House has been privately owned[by whom?] ever since the Domesday Book of 1086 until around the time of the War,[which?] when it was passed on to the British Army to be used as a maternity Hospital. Over 100 babies have been delivered in Marlborough Hall.
The House has changed hands within the Army several times; having been used by the Officers' Association (OA), and the former Women's Royal Army Corps (WRAC), before it was handed over for use as a training college for the Cadet Forces of the British Armed Forces in 1957, opening for its first course in 1959. The College has remained with the Cadet Forces ever since.
The CTC Frimley Park is used primarily for the training of the cadet forces through courses. These include:
- Senior Officers' Course
- Area Commanders' Course
- Exercise Conducting Officer Course (ECO)
- CF Adult and Leadership Management Course (ALM)
- CF Skill at Arms Instructor Course
- CCF Basic Course
Note: The CTC also hosts the ACF Champion Cadet Competition.
