xx Access to Profile from Home page?

Colour me blind, but I've been a member for 9 years, and I still can't figure out if there is a way to go directly to my profile from the Home page.

From the master list of Topics/Threads, sure; that's easy. But from the home page? Does it exist?

xx electrician trade at BCIT or apply for Electrical Distribution Technician?

August 14, 2015, 00:18:18 by kod006
Hi, I have been working in electrician trade for a year now, but I haven't had myself signed up as apprentice yet. I am also planning to apply for Reserves.

Before applying, I can use some advice. I have been thinking about, should I complete my electrician trade (all four levels) through BCIT or apply for Electrical Distribution Technician?

Thank you

xx Cant go away for my DP1 this summer - within good reason.

June 26, 2015, 00:50:24 by bulletz
I'll try to keep this as short as possible, before I joined the Army Reserves I attended a police academy, its been my goal since I was a child to be a police officer, I enjoy the military for the most part, but I always said I would put policing first. I was supposed to go on my infantry DP1 which starts in about a week, but today I received an email that Edmonton police services want to me to come in for the final part of the hiring in Edmonton July 20th, meaning I have to choose between doing my reserve force DP1 or a potential career i've always wanted. I'm choosing to take the risk and go to Edmonton.

My question is, when I call and explain tomorrow why I cant go a week before course can they potentially kick me out? I haven't signed a class b contract or anything. I know its a shitty thing to do but I just found this out yesterday. I enjoy the military and would still like to stay in it, I just can't go away this summer.

Like I said, I haven't signed a contract yet. Most that happened is they put an advance in my bank account which I didn't need nor ask for, I'm just going to return the money by money order.

xx Life of an EME officer

May 05, 2015, 00:38:18 by AndrewEME
Hi my name is Andrew, and I am an EME DEO (OCdt). I am departing to Quebec in a few weeks to receive basic training in June. I was wondering if any current/retired EME officers could describe to me how an average day of an EME OFFICER is like. One burning question: what happens after dp1 in New Brunswick? Do we get to choose where we get to work, or do we fly/ship out to wherever we are needed?
