Re: Are they going to run a CP selection/course ever again?

No, that is not the case anymore as two people from my reserve infantry unit got their qualification last year and a buddy of mine from QOR the previous year.

Sorry I'm a little confused.

Is this saying that currently Close Protection selection is available for Military police trades only or is it open for all trades to apply?

That's because what used to be that thread has been merged with this one.  Shoulda mentioned the merge - my apologies.

Ah thanks. Editing confuses me  ;D

it's too bad Close Protection is closed to trades other than MP now, I wouldn't have minded taking a crack at the course. I've heard about some of the job opportunities guys have had after that course and it's pretty wild.  It would also be a good way to disseminate the training across the CF

I went through the CPAC in 2007 which I'm sure is different now......my advice, if you can only get the minimum physical standard mentioned in the CANFORGEN then you're in trouble. The only portion of the CPAC that you can influence is your physical fitness level.

A buddy of mine from the reserves ended up landing a gig doing CP for Eugene Melnyk's family. Sounded like a pretty good go and the money wasn't bad either.

I've heard through the grapevine that CP is going to open this year to NON-MP trades again. Can anybody confirm or deny this?

You'll know as soon as there's a CANFORGEN about it, I haven't seen a CANFORGEN for MP-only in years, however.

I doubt it.  With the slowdown in tempo due to the withdrawal from Afghanistan (although there is still a team at the Embassy), we have been able to fill the demand from within for the last several years.

Unless it does get opened to all again, you won't see a CANFORGEN looking for applicants as it is all done on the MP net right now.

I second this - there is a huge flux of Military Police Reg and Reserve in the que who want to go on tour. Also, it is my understanding the vision of the CP Program is to sustain trained pers with a view to generate corporate knowledge so that the MP Branch can be relied upon to commit to CP related tasks that will likely present themselves in the future. CP capability is a strategic priority for the MP Branch and it fits very well with the Law Enforcement ethos.

Sooooooo ... If you wanna become CP qualified ... shoot me a PM and we can discuss if the Reserve Military Police is a good fit for you!  8)

New CANFORGEN is out regarding the next few CPOACs.  Junior members of the combat arms are eligible to apply again.
