BMOQ Dates in 2017
« on: February 13, 2017, 13:18:57 »
This is the information available to me at the moment and is subject to change based on the needs of the CAF and CFLRS (i.e. I am NOT posting on behalf of either organization)

Upcoming start dates for BMOQ:
8-May-17
15-May-17
28-Aug-17

There are various June & July dates for BMOQ Mod 1 ONLY and normally used for ROTP candidates.


Cheers

Always good to hear when new course dates are starting up (especially for those of us this "late" in the process - sitting on the Merit List!). Hopefully I'll be hearing some good news in time for these dates.  :nod:

Update to above please note that the 8-May BMOQ is an ROTP serial and there is Anglo & Franco to that serial.
Otherwise the next Franco BMOQ for DEO is not scheduled until August.

Thank you very much for the dates.

For each BMOQ, are people from the merit lists of all trades selected, or does each BMOQ focus on a select few trades?

The only occupations that get their own BMOQ are Chaplain (and sometimes Medical Officer); otherwise BMOQs will have all occupations on it.

Is it feasible that August 28th BMOQ will start filling up around March/April or is that too soon and they will still be working on May BMOQs?

I am currently ROTP in Year 1 at a Local University and need to go for BMOQ in the summer. I am a former CPL though and am only going to be sent for Phase 2 of BMOQ. Would I expect to be sent for 8/15 May? Or would I be sent for aprox 26Jun/3Jul (7 weeks after initial start date) until 14/21 Aug (another 7 weeks after that)?

Good Day,

The 8/15 May are full BMOQ's.  I'm not at work at the moment but from my memory I only have full BMOQ and BMOQ Mod 1 dates.
As you're currently already in the CAF (since you state you're Year 1 ROTP) you should speak with your ULO to determine what your dates are.

Best Regards

Good morning Buck_HRA, so the way I understand is May 8th is reserved for ROTP entry and then ones for DEO are May 15th and August 28th. Is there a chance the May 15th one may already be full at this stage?

Thank you once again for all your information.

I've talked to my recruiter and he's told me that my medical/interview will be scheduled for April as my LOG has a note to have my file ready for a job offer for May 9th. Does this mean they're planning on shipping me away to the May 15th BMOQ? My recruiter isn't aware of any BMOQ start dates so he couldn't assist me with this question.

Thanks!

I am wondering if you may have misunderstood the information given to you. 

Normally there are not notes stated to have a job offer ready by a specific date with the exception of if someone is to be picked up in a specific Fiscal Year (i.e. MOTP candidates that are being picked up for Fiscal Year 16/17 have a note stating that they need to have their file completed by 31-Mar but there is no specific date beyond that).

Good Day

I am new to this forum but I was referred by a friend who has been monitoring BMOQ start days as he's been merit listed and is awaiting a start date.
I have received nothing but vague responses when I try to find out where I stand in the process so I'm hoping you can maybe clarify what the Lt. meant when he said "we are waiting for HQ to make a selection."
I've been declared medically fit, passed aircrew & interview completed

Thanks for your time

It means that you're in a "list" of people who have also applied to the CAF.  When selections are done your file is there and if you are competitive you will be selected, if you are not competitive enough your file will remain in that "list".

The reason why you are getting vague response in regards to where you sit is because no one can tell you with certainty whether you'll be selected or not as the competitiveness of the occupation you're wishing to join is constantly changing.

Many thanks for your quick reply.
I completely understand the vagueness of the reply from the Lt.... I just wish he could have said it the way you did. I've been waiting to read the words 'merit listed' (although you didnt use that exact term I'm hoping that's what you meant) for quite some time. The actual selection of my file from the merit list will of course be something that cannot be predicted.

Thanks again good sir!

Good Day,

You will no longer hear the term "merit list" so if that's what you're hoping for you won't hear it from any current recruiting staff (unless they misspeak like I still do from time to time). 
The term has been changed to "competition list" ... :-)

My ROTP classes will be ending June 12, so I'm assuming I'll be loaded into BMOQ mod 2 after that.  Would you happen to know what the start dates are?

This is the information available to me at the moment and is subject to change based on the needs of the CAF and CFLRS (i.e. I am NOT posting on behalf of either organization)

Upcoming start dates for BMOQ:
8-May-17
15-May-17
28-Aug-17

There are various June & July dates for BMOQ Mod 1 ONLY and normally used for ROTP candidates.

I'm sorry I don't have Mod 2 dates, I only have full BMOQ and BMOQ Mod 1 dates.
Your best source of information for when Mod 2 dates would be is your ULO.  If you don't know who your ULO is, send me a PM with your name and I can let you know who your current ULO is.

There are still a few openings left (mainly due to people not accepting their offers); however for the most part the BMOQ starting on 15-Jan-2018 is now being loaded.

Is the cap on a BMOQ based on ratios of certain trades or just a general number of people?

BMOQ is made of several occupations, there is no specific ratio - it's based on whoever the Selections Team is currently selecting off of the Competition List to generate offers for.

Hi again Buch_HRA,

Do you know if there is still a french BMOQ being loaded for fall 2017, or are the next dates in 2018?

Thanks again and have a nice day!
