HOW TO BECOME A CADRE MEMBER
CADRE membership can be attained in two ways. The first one is by completing a comprehensive CADRE training. Once a year, a select and limited number of qualified applicants receives extensive CADRE training through the County of San Diego. Applicants are rigorously selected by the County of San Diego Contracting Officer’s Technical Representatives (CORS) from each of the sectors. If you would like to apply to CADRE training, please contact your COR directly.
The second way of attaining membership is by having received CADRE training in your organization via the "Train the Trainer" system. If your organization is a CADRE member, utilizes a CADRE approved "Train the Trainer" system to train employees, then you may apply for membership by contacting the Executive Committee and completing the application process. Please contact us for more information if you have been CADRE trained within your organization - we welcome you to join the CADRE!
