You will need to speak with a Recruiter at a Local Unit.

Welcome to Army.ca. A couple of things to note; please refrain from posting the same thing more than once, either in multiple threads or in the same thread. As well, when waiting for a reply, it's important to be patient. A reply might not appear immediately for various reasons. In the mean time, while a poster is waiting for an answer to their question, it gives them time to research the site and there's a good chance they'll find the answers they're seeking in the interim.

PT1 course
« Reply #256 on: July 17, 2017, 13:10:31 »
Hi there. Can anyone describe to me a typical week doing PT1 in Meaford ON, with the Reserves (GGFG's OTTAWA)? I'm signing up and would like some kind of heads-up, if possible. Thanks!

Local Calgary Reserve Training
« Reply #257 on: July 24, 2017, 15:29:59 »
I have been looking into joining up with the reserves locally in Calgary and like the part time aspect of BMQ, I am finding however that most of the trades require a full-time training requirement in Borden for the months of July and August, which isn't really doable for me.
I wondered if there are any trades that complete ALL training part time in Calgary?

Thanks.

Hello:

Highly unlikely.  If you are interested in the Army Reserve call 403 310 ARMY.

Your best bet is to speak with the recruiter at GGFG or ask to speak with someone who has recently done the training.  Last time I worked as a Recruiter for a Reserve Unit I welcomed new applicants to come in and speak with individuals who recently did the training.  Reason for this is that even though I was a recruiter I did my Basic Course in the 90's and things have definitely changed.

I can't think of any occupation that allows the occupation training to be done part-time.  If you were to join an occupation that you are fully qualified in on the civilian side, then possibly a PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment) could be completed to allow you to bypass occupation training.  But eventually you'd need to do other courses in your career that require full time attendance.
