Cadet Audio Textbooks

Posted on April 19, 2022 at 1:54 PM by Joanna Lee

A major component of the Cadet Program involves taking written test and exams based on comprehension of leadership and aerospace textbooks. Unfortunately, studying for and taking these tests can pose a problem for cadets who have disabilities affecting the comprehension of written texts. While audio files for some cadet texts have been provided by volunteers, many chapters and modules have not been available.  The National Cadet Team is now in the process of converting the core cadet texts into audio versions.  These files will increase the inclusivity of our program to those who may have unique learning needs.  Additionally, some learners may just prefer the convenience of listening to the text to learn the information and/or review before a comprehensive exam.

The first drafts of the Cadet Audio tracks are being posted here.  Please take a listen.  If you have feedback regarding the track production, please include it in the comments below or in an email to  

Special thanks to the National Cadet Advisory Council who was instrumental in taking up and elevating this project to support their fellow cadets.

Brilliant! Of one thing I'm certain, this will be a boon to CPOs pressed for a moment to read/re-read/study these materials. I hope it will be made available through commonly used book or podcast apps!
