xx BattlePro for iOS - Testers Wanted

February 02, 2016, 10:38:38 by Mike Bobbitt
I'm in the process of making some updates to the app, and prior to releasing it to the general public I am looking for a few willing volunteers to help test. You need an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod), and the TestFlight app installed.

If you're interested, please send me a PM with the email address I can use to register you for testing. (It's an Apple requirement.)


Cheers and thanks
Mike

xx MP Response to fire - Split from First infantry regular force female LCol.

January 25, 2016, 23:19:11 by MedCorps
She was a VanDoo when she was promoted major in 2007.

She was a Major in R22eR in 2014 when she had a Courts Martial.

Interesting case.  Nice to see that the reprimand did not affect her career.

I have crossed paths with LCol Wellwood on a number of occasions over the past 15 years and she is a good person and will do a great job as a LCol. The RCIC is lucky to have her.

xx Documentaries based on Vehicle Technicians?

January 02, 2016, 21:13:25 by xshafted
Not sure if this is posted in the wrong section, so forgive me if it is.

I want to know if anyone knows of any Vehicle Technician related documentaries in the Canadian Forces? I've seen one called "Combat School" which was aired on the Discovery Channel, but that mostly shows Infantry. Any help finding something would be awesome. Thanks in advance

How are combat related trades like infantrymen, combat eng, armored, etc, trained to deal with wild animals when it comes to self-defense?

xx Leadership qualities of a junior NCMs/ MBA after being a Junior NCM

November 21, 2015, 23:22:07 by Flyingboy444
Hi! So currently I am attending University, pursuing an accounting degree. My question is; as a junior NCM in the RCA (Gunner and Bombardier) do you learn any valuable leadership skills that could of value in the civilian world? I am interested in joining the Reg force as a NCM after graduating. Why not Officer? To be honest I do not believe that I have the qualities to be an officer in the Combat trades. Support trades like logistics are a different story. So, do you think employers will consider my 3-5 years as Gunner/Bombardier, valuable? I would be interested in getting a MBA after my service too. Does anyone know if NCMs with degrees do MBAs after their service? I know Officers do but what about NCMs. Lastly, how is it being a NCM with a degree, is there a lot, will I be promoted faster?

To add, I joined my local artillery reserve unit in september. So, I would have 4 years of Reserve experience before joining
