Re: How should I get ready for the POET course!
« Reply #50 on: August 14, 2010, 21:07:00 »
Thanks for your responses.  They have given me some comfort in preparing for this course.  Today I picked up a Physics review book that focuses on AC/DC material as well as a trig for dummies book that will help me remember what I use to know from highschool.  Again thanks

Nope, I bet that it has more to do with CTC trying to bring the course under 100 training days.

What is POET equivalent to in ACISS
« Reply #53 on: April 05, 2011, 19:50:07 »
I have a question in regard to completion of my POET course and currently on the ACISS DP1.0. What does POET become equivalent too towards the sub-occ CST and what am I able to bypass or skip some of? If any at all?

I would assume that POET would not let you bypass/skip anything on ACISS DP1.  DP1 AFAIK trains you to be a very basic basic level Rad Op, and that is not taught on POET.

That is not entirely what I meant.. I meant training after the DP1.0 towards CST. Original post was poorly worded.

You phrased that weird.. do you mean what does POET do for you after you have completed DP1 and await your CST training?  Not to be a dick, but you tell us once you are done everything. ACISS is brand new, and a lot of the finer details are still being worked up.  Plus you are at CFSCE right now, have you talked to your course staff about it? I don't know the TP for CST, someone else may or have more info on it.

Seriously though, when you are out of the training system, post up a small write up on the new training system and how it is working out for all the new people coming straight into ACISS.

I've tried asking but nobody seems to know. Just thought maybe I, could try my luck here. I thought there would be no harm in trying. Since there seems to be a broader view on the trades and ACISS on the forums.

Its called FET = Fundamental Electronics Training. I believe its shorter than the original, but not by much.

Do you know if it is considered the CSS 1.1 or is that part of the CST2.1 training?

It is confusing since it's not in the training schedule. I can't remember is it was CST 1.0 or 1.1 that is more than 100 days so perhaps it's included in one of those course?

1.0 courses are ACISS Core training, and common to all subtrades. CST 1.1 is your sub-moc training and should include FET.

You're right I just looked at the Calendar. CST 1.1 is 39 days and 2.1 is 140 so I would venture a guess that POET  is included in 2.1 .

I wouldn't count on your CST 2.1 quickly. You'll be working as a CST 1.1 for at least a year or more and will probably need to be almost ready for promotion or promoted to Cpl before the CF puts you on a CST 2.1 course. Exceptionally cases may get you the course early if you've got a real good aptitude, but the intent of moving POET/FET to the DP2 level was to encourage members to sign a second contract before the CF dumps 8 months of training on them and only getting a year of actual employment before their Basic Engagement runs out.

« Reply #65 on: August 04, 2011, 08:50:18 »
Hi everyone,

I will be going on my POET course at CFB Kingston in the near future and I was wondering what was the procedure to get a PMQ for me and my other half while on that course?
Or is the option of getting an appartment close to base is available?

thx in advance

Accommodations instructions should be on your message. If you are on a restricted posting, then you will be in the shacks while on course. This saves the CF from doing multiple moves of DF&E, the course is only about 6 months long. An average deployment is of the same length. Hopefully this helps, ask your unit orderly room for clarification.

POET Pre-course work up
« Reply #67 on: February 08, 2012, 11:12:28 »
Everyone I  have been looking for a while now and have found some very good items to aid anyone going into a trade that requires POET.   Here is a link to CFSCE's course catalogue.  If you click the tab named OJT Pkgs, CBTs & ref  it has a good level of work for  a noob to do prior to going into their POET course. Hope this helps any future POETs get some help quickly.

Looks like you found it.  Thats where the PIPs used to be, figured there'd still be something there.

Just spent a little time going through that link, and there are some pretty epic typos.  Like this beauty:

You didn't post the sentence which immediately preceded that...the sentence which stated the site was undergoing a major overhaul due to the ACISS process. 

And you then have your answer about how that got through spell check...they're all drinking to ease the pain.   ;D

I am reticent about creating new threads, and here goes.

I am heading to Borden on 25 Feb 2013 as a new AVS Tech. I will be waiting there until I can go to POET in Kingston.

My recruiting process was done with CFRC Montreal, with a French profile.

I can see on the CFSCE website's calendar that there are two kinds of POET courses:
  • #ID 112313 which is 111 Training Days
  • #ID 119062 which is 132 Training Days

Does it make a difference for AVS Techs? I'm thinking this is only indicating a new, 21 days longer course, and the only opening I could optimistically have (next fiscal year calendar isn't finalized yet) is the #ID 119062 starting on 6 Mar 2013.

Bonus question: What are my chances to only sit on Borden's PAT for 11/2 week and be sent to Kingston for 6 Mar 2013?

Alternate Bonus question: now, if AVS Techs can be loaded on #ID 119062, and if there are still openings, how long would it take for the Borden PAT to have me sit through a linguistic test attesting that I can work in English so I don't have to wait for a francophone course next fiscal year?

The course was changing when I was there, sounds like it still is if it has 2 versions of POET. IMO one version is for AVS, other is for ATIS possibly, or the old version of LCIS techs (whatever they're called now)

Nah, on the next fiscal year all the courses are 132 training days, so it's really that POET was lengthened.

For posterity for any curious person scouring the forums about POET in the near future, here are the FY 2013/14 (non-finalized) dates as of 23 Jan 13:

17-Apr-13
