Joining Infantry
« on: April 30, 2017, 15:27:24 »
Hello Readers,

Q1: Can you join reserves at the age of 16 while i am a full time student, i'm 16 at the moment and i am going for infantry. It says "Reserve Force - Applicants may be 16 years of age if they are also enrolled as a full-time high school student." But i am unsure if you must be finished grade 10 or not

Q2: How would basic training work since i'm still in school would i do basic periodically or during the summer

Q3: How long would i take for me to actually start basic after I've talked to a recruiter

Thanks for reading and if anyone has the awnser to any of my questions please do answer since i wish to apply as soon as possible  :cdn:

To apply to the Forces, you must:
Have completed at least Grade 10 or Secondaire IV (in Quebec).

How would basic training work since i'm still in school would i do basic periodically or during the summer

Reserve Weekend or Summer BMQ
( As a student, if you have summers available, you may prefer Summer BMQ. )

Hi Adrian,

Just to expand a tiny bit more on what mariomike quite helpfully posted, talking to the CFRC (surely what he meant by "recruiting") will be your best bet. In the meantime, please have a read of the links he posted, and please keep your questions to one single thread. It really helps when it's all in one spot.

Good luck!

Edit: clarity.

In future please only post your queries to one thread - and please use the search feature as your questions have been asked and answered many times :-)

PS. Thank you mariomike & George Wallace; I hadn't even noticed the double thread.  This topic is locked and the other topic is removed.

Hello Readers,

I am finishing up grade 10 and i'm currently 16 but i wish to do basic training over the summer for the two months.
I'm finishing up grade 10 and i have about 1 month and a few weeks until i finish grade 10 but i know there is processing
involved, which i am required to show but the time that i finish will it be too late to join because i have waited a year so far
and i rather not wait another would it be possible for them to check my records education and such now? because i'm afraid
i will have to wait another year to do basic during summer.

If anyone has the answers to my question please do answer thanks.  :cdn:

AdrianInfantry,  I accidentally clicked the Modify button in my reply to your post.
I did not edit or modify anything.  My mistake. My apologies.

I have merged your two threads. Please do not start new threads asking much the same questions.

Did you read the links that mariomike generously provided? If not, please do so, as Scott already requested.

We do not know where you are in the recruiting process, so it is not possible to even guess. You seem to be asking if you can be given a higher priority, though. If that is correct, then you are not likely to be so accommodated.
