Comms Research Trg schedule and pers prep?
« on: August 24, 2016, 17:42:33 »
Good day,
I'm a former member who is waiting to get back in as Comms research.  I was previously  res Inf Back in high school, Reg Force Armoured 10 yrs and AES Op 3 yrs.  Completed interview and medical etc with recruiting center and awaiting the next phase.  That being said I'm just wondering how often 3's run at kingston (Recruit school bypass and should be granted my SQ bypass). I saw the last time this was asked was a few yrs old.  Also for current Comms research what kind of work would you recommend to get back in mental shape ie math skills, playing with my SDR lol. I know they'll teach what I'll need but just looking to make life easier for future me.  Anyhoo gents / ladies thanks for your input and any responses / PM's would be greatly appreciated.

For math -- do not worry. They (the Internet and the CAF generally) make the math pack out to be a challenge. I was terrible in math, and did not take grade 12 math and passed with flying colors with only minimal studying.

As for "what to study," honestly, I wouldn't worry too much. The courses are not (by any stretch) comprehensive, and the instruction is pretty straightforward. Perhaps learn some basic Unix material (but even that will be taught on couse). I would just enjoy your 3's time as a relaxing change from Armd and AES Op!

I'll start putting some stuff together now.  I'm sure you'll be *creating* some new stuff for me to use....don't forget to put those Wings up on that Navy tunic.

Ha definitley will do, CF Dress Manual is not super clear on wings on Naval uniform but i think i can figure it out.  They need more pictures!!!!  Hope you guys have some downtime today, stay safe and i'll catch you at the mess some day.

roger that.  I'd wear them...I know Navy guys used to do the jump course and wear mini style wings on their left sleeve around where the Marksmanship badge went on Army DEU.  You earned them, and can wear 'em for life according to the applic CFAO...

When do you leave for Upper Canuckistan?

End of the month, so just over 2 corned beef and cabbages from now.  I think without a specialist skill badge like the submariner or clearance diver  the wings might go in the same spot as air force  over medals, but again its worded wonky in dress manual.  Someone there has to know.  If there's a problem I'll just self identify as air force and see how far that gets me.  Pretty sure sense of humor has trumped skill and knowledge for me so far! LOL!

When the dress manual isnt clear,  google image search will save me.
Hope that link works,  dude half left in pic has wings on Navy tunic,  and doesnt look like he's currently getting jacked up.  Eyes front tho Troop.

Careful with Google image search.  I can't help but notice that the CFCWO has a SSI with an anchor on a black background, yet my SSI is on a blue background, same uniform.   

So there is a disconnect somewhere.

As for your AES Op wings just slap them up on you chest.   I am sure you might get some odd looks, but then again it's the navy, everyone is odd.  Unless you are that clearance diver in the photo that was posted.  He appears to have found his happy place, the only normal one on parade.

Remember, gloves are only worn with a touque.  If I have learned anything over the past few years it's that we spend way too much time on stupid crap and we don't wear the Yukon cap nearly enough.

Thats my favorite piece of kit hands down.  I wear it every time I snow blow the yard!  Never saw it worn in uniform,  thats a shame.

I have a Yukon, one size too small sweater, skin tight floodie DEU pants and my Austin Powers issued leather boots just WAITING for the right opportunity.   I was dreaming about this year's At Home at the Officers Mess...
