MP recruiting 2017/18
« on: December 07, 2017, 14:56:07 »
Thought I would start up a new thread for candidates of the 2017/18 MP intake. This way we can get to know one another and ask tons of questions without bombarding other threads.

Great idea. Is this for officer or ncm?

Ooooh, thanks for reminding me... I'm applying as NCM so I guess we can stick to that, I don't really care but I guess there is a bit of difference between the two

So I was told 32 or so positions left for this year (MP NCM) and 73 for next year. So not too bad. Still curious how many people got to the interviews back in October. I'm sure more than 30. Also, apparently they are doing a selection this week so let's keep our fingers crossed and good luck to all who applied.

If I could make a suggestion; given the many commonalities and small numbers of MPO, it probably wouldn't hurt to have a combined thread.

Agreed. There’s no reason to have separate threads for NCM/Officer in this instance. There won’t be enough contributing users and/or specific interest in this thread to warrant it. You guys will likely cross paths in the mess and on weekends and such even if you aren’t loaded on the same course, so it’s still good to get to know each other.

Roger that,

 I kind of figured It'd be for both officer/NCM. I didn't see why not, so it's settled this thread is for all things MP recruiting. Officer or NCM.

Hello all,

First time, long time.

I applied for an NCM MP position in August,2016 and I have successfully completed my medical and interview on Sept 12, 2016 and my references have been called in mid November. Just recently, I have been notified that my file is being reviewed for consideration for MPAC this upcoming February.
Anybody else have any news?

Military Christmas Break usually starts Friday. If you haven't heard anything by now, it's likely you won't hear anything until January.

Well that's slightly depressing... called CFRC this morning and I'm on competition list still, so looks like I probably won't make it on the January QL3 (with recruit school bypass). Was hoping to hear this week but no such luck as of yet. Hopefully by Friday if I'm lucky. Anyone else hoping to jump on the January course here?

I'm unfortunately still waiting to finish my degree in April 2018. Got called in for medical and interview at the same time for everyone to realize that I do not have my degree yet and that I would not be able to do the interview until I get said degree. My references got called and everything so I don't know if they will have to repeat that again in April but we will see. That's ok with me though, gives me more time at the gym and I just started a supervising position at work.

Good luck to all of you, seems like its a competitive position but awesome to hear about the 73 positions next year (for me that is relevant anyways).

I called my CFRC today too in hopes of catching them before they left for the holidays, since I have not made contact since late October, and they informed me that I have a pending job offer for MP! They informed me that they are just working out the final offer and that I should receive it by either just before the Christmas break or shortly thereafter so I don't know if I'll make the January class... but still pretty damn good news!

My how things have changed. A 'few' years ago when I applied  MP was my 3rd choice.  Was offered a position 3 months after I applied. I decided to wait to for a medic position. It did, phew;)

Morning all!
I have a somewhat off topic question but I think I can still make ut fit this topic and save having to start a new thread:

Former MP (conscription) solder from Sweden.
Just shy of 10 years as a correctional officer both provincial and federally.
Grade 12 only, nothing else.
I'm the process for CF now, looking at Armour.
What, if any, are my options of getting over to MP?

Cheers!  ;D

Without a diploma in police foundations or equivalent from an accredited college your options for becoming an MP are either join the armoured corps and after a few years apply for an occupational transfer to MP if you can.  You can also get a college diploma in police foundations or equivalent and then apply to join as an MP.

Transfers are tough too, you either need a portion of the education and an operational tour of 180 days, or the full educational requirement.

Yeah I'm looking at what I can do online once I'm in, and the do the transfer.

Lunchmeat, could you elaborate a little on portion the educational requirements and the 180 tour.
Never heard that, so it's nice to see there are options.

When I OT'd the requirements if you didn't have police foundations were you either had to be PLQ qualified OR have an operational tour with at least 180 days spent in theatre
