I've been wondering, are there any circumstances under which a reserve pte would be promoted to a cpl before 2 years in?

For LCIS & ATIS, due to their manning shortages several people with the "right" skillset were bypass POET & QL3 in recent years. These pers are considered "Direct Entry Enrollee's" However, you must have the exact skillset which their are looking for as determined by CFSCE Stds & CFRG, so the best place to ask is at the CFRC itself. If any are still  ongoing, CFRC's will have the ability to provide you with all the paritcular information pertaining to these two occupations and the specific & unique enrollment programs available for each.

This is not to say that the CFAO's George mentions above are not applicable, quite to the contrary as they will guide you career post enrollement.

As you are being paid as a Cpl IPC/3 you will continue to be paid at that Level until such time as your Rank entitles you to be paid at that Rank Scale.  I am sure that if you follow the previous links, you will find the official word, and that is all that P2 FinClerk can quote you.  As an OCdt, it is time to start getting used to researching CFAO's, QR&O's, DOAD's and other DND Administrative links, as you will have to be the 'expert' when you get to 'lead men'.

Very nice.  If you go to the CFAO's, QR&O's and DAOD's in the links and looked up Vested Rights, and what a member is entitled to and then the CF Pay Scales (Links in another Thread) you will find the info necessary to answer the original question.  Now we are wasting time.

Vested rights insured that people did not lose money
when commissioned from the ranks or when the CF
mandated a change to a member's career. Under
vested rights, a corporal appointed to officer cadet in
the University Training Plan - Non-Commissioned
Member (UTP NCM), for example, would continue
to be paid their corporal rate of pay, plus receive any
future Incentive Pay Categories (IPCs) and
economic increases, PO2 Bernard explained

Pick out the paragraphs that pertain to you:

Quote
CFAO 49-4 -- CAREER POLICY NON-COMMISSIONED MEMBERS REGULAR FORCE

PURPOSE
1.     This order amplifies QR&O chapters 11 and 14, and prescribes the
policy for non-commissioned members (NCMs) on promotion, reduction,
reversion, and relinquishment of rank in the Regular Force.

DEFINITIONS2.     In this order:
ENROLMENT
     includes re-enrolment in, or transfer to, the Regular Force;

ENTER PROMOTION ZONE (EPZ)
     means the date on which a member is eligible for consideration for
     promotion. The EPZ date is determined from the enrolment date adjusted
     by adding any leave without pay (LWOP) granted on enrolment, plus the
     minimum promotion time prerequisite for the next higher rank specified
     in Annex A, minus the time credit for promotion (TCP) if applicable,
     but it is never earlier than the enrolment date; or on promotion it is
     determined from the seniority date plus the minimum time prerequisite
     for the next higher rank specified in Annex A;

OCCUPATION TRANSFER (OT)
     means the transfer of NCMs from their current military occupation
     (MOC) to another MOC;

PROMOTION
     includes appointment as master corporal (MCpl), granting of acting
     rank, and advancement within the rank of private from private
     (recruit) (Pte(R)) to private (basic) (Pte(B)) to private (trained)
     (Pte(T));

QUALIFICATION LEVEL (QL)
     replaces "Trade Qualification (TQ)" and means the level of skill and
     knowledge specified for individual MOCs in the A-PD-series
     publications;

QUALIFYING SERVICE
     means the service required for entry into the promotion zone (EPZ) or
     for promotion to the next higher rank;

REDUCTION IN RANK
     means the compulsory demotion from a substantive rank to a lower rank
     by reason of, or consequent upon, a sentence imposed by a Service
     tribunal;

REVERSION IN RANK
     means the return to a lower rank by other than reduction and includes
     revocation and relinquishment of rank or appointment;

SENIORITY DATE
     means the date of promotion to substantive rank or in the case of a
     person who holds the rank granted on enrolment, the date of enrolment.
     This date may be subject to various adjustments;

TIME CREDIT FOR PROMOTION (TCP) TCP
     means the qualifying service calculated on the basis of the member's
     previous service, rank and military and/or civilian qualifications.
     TPC determines the earliest date a member may be eligible for
     promotion to the next higher substantive rank and is used to calculate
     the initial EPZ date, and

TRAINING IN THE NEW MOC
     includes MOC qualification training and/or language training.

PROMOTION FOR MERITORIOUS SERVICE OR GALLANTRY
3.     A member may be promoted in recognition of meritorious service or an
act of gallantry; such promotions require the approval of the Minister of
National Defence.

PROMOTION AUTHORITY
4.     Subject to paragraph 5, the approving authority for:
     a.   promotion to Pte(B), Pte(T), acting lacking/corporal (AL/Cpl),
          acting/corporal (provisional) (A/Cpl(P)) and Corporal (Cpl) is
          the member's commanding officer (CO);

     b.   except as specified in Annexes A, B and F, appointment to MCpl,
          or promotion to sergeant (Sgt) or to a higher rank, is National
          Defence Headquarters/Director General Personnel Careers Other
          Ranks (NDHQ/DGPCOR); and

     c.   except as specified in Annexes C and F, granting and revoking
          acting rank (acting lacking (AL) and/or provisional(P)) is
          NDHQ/DGPCOR.

5.     The approving authority for:

     a.   accelerated promotion to Cpl is the member's CO subject to any
          limitations imposed by the officer commanding the command (OCC);

     b.   accelerated promotion to MCpl or to a rank higher than Cpl is
          NDHQ/DGPCOR; and

     c.   promotion from acting to substantive rank is the CO when the
          lacking prerequisite has been obtained.

6.     The sole authority for revoking a member's appointment as MCpl is
NDHQ/DGPCOR. Except as provided for in Appendix 2 of Annex B and paragraph
10 of Annex F, eligibility for reappointment will be determined by the
first merit board convened following revocation.

7.     The approving authority for granting acting rank "while so employed"
is limited to designated commanders of operational theatres, as determined
by the Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS). A rank authorized on a
while-so-employed basis shall be revoked not later than the date when the
member ceases to be employed in the operational theatre.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR PROMOTION
8.     In accordance with  QR&O 11.02, a member may not be promoted unless
the following conditions are met:
     a.   an appropriate vacancy in the total establishment for the
          component exists:

     b.   the member is recommended by the appropriate authority; and

     c.   the member meets such promotion standards and other conditions as
          the CDS may prescribe. Except in cases of OT as outlined in
          paragraph 26, a member who declines promotion will be subject to
          a Career Review Board (CRB) in accordance with paragraph 41.

9.     Superseded by CANFORGEN 087/06

MILITARY REQUIREMENTS
10.    The military requirement referred to in subparagraph 9b(2) is the
number of NCMs required at each rank level, in each military occupation, to
man the Canadian Forces (CF) establishment. Annual promotion quotas are
determined by calculating the difference between the military requirement
and the actual strength after subtracting the projected attrition for the
year from the latter figure. A member who will be selected for promotion
from the merit list within the annual promotion quota may be promoted out
of sequence during the promotion year to meet Service requirements. This
action will ensure units as full a complement of leaders as possible,
reduce turbulence, and permit the member the benefit of rank commensurate
with assigned duties.

ACTION BY COMMANDING OFFICER RESPECTING PROMOTION
11.    For promotion to Cpl, AUCpl or A/Cpl(P) and for nominations to
accelerated promotions and from acting to substantive rank, form CF 743A,
UER (Unit Employment Record) Qualification Record Sheet, shall be completed
and distributed as described in Annex G.
12.    A recommendation by a CO for promotion, or for qualification leading
to promotion, shall be construed to mean that the member has, in all
respects, demonstrated the necessary potential, and that the CO is prepared
to retain and develop the member in the higher rank.
13.    When a CO has recommended the promotion of a member in a Personal
Evaluation Record (PER) or by any other means, it is imperative that any
change in circumstances that could affect the member's suitability for
promotion be reported immediately to NDHQ/DGPCOR by message.
14.    When a promotion to Pte(T) or Cpl is denied, the CO shall inform
NDHQ/DGPCOR of the circumstances and specify the intended period of delay,
and inform the member of the action taken.
15.    In all cases, the CO shall, prior to approving promotion, confirm that
the member meets the minimum medical category for the MOC as prescribed in
34-30, Medical Standards for the Canadian Forces.
16.    When a promotion instruction has been issued and the CO does not
concur, recommendation that the promotion be denied shall be forwarded to
NDHQ/DPCAOR 2. The member shall be advised of the CO's action and of the
NDHQ decision.

COUNSELLING AND PROBATION
17.    A member is not eligible for promotion during a period of probation.
COMPASSIONATE STATUS18.    Cpls and above who are on compassionate status in accordance with 20-4,
Compassionate Status and Postings-- Regular Force, shall be considered
for promotion in competition with their contemporaries; however, they are
not promotable for the period they remain on compassionate status.

LOWERED MEDICAL CATEGORIES
19.    When a member of the rank of Cpl or above who is eligible for
promotion is assigned a temporary medical category that is lower than the
minimum required for the member's MOC, promotion shall be deferred.
Reinstatement of the member by NDHQ/DPCAOR (Director Personnel Career
Administration Other Ranks) shall occur only when a permanent category at
or above the minimum MOC requirement is approved by NDHQ/DMTS, (Director
Medical Treatment Services) or on declaration of a Career Medical Review
Board (CMRB) finding of retention without restriction. In either case, the
member must meet all other promotion prerequisites and the promotion shall
not be antedated more than 12 months. The member shall be advised of the
CO's action and the NDHQ decision.

20.    Superseded by ADM(HR-Mil) Instruction 05/05

21.    A Pte who has a temporary medical category that is below the MOC
requirement may be promoted to Cpl provided all other prerequisites have
been met. In the case of a Pte who has a permanent medical category that
precludes unrestricted employment, the member may, subject to NDHQ/DPCAOR
approval, be promoted to Cpl providing all other promotion prerequisites
have been met.

SENIORITY ON ENROLMENT OR TRANSFER
22.    On enrolment or transfer, seniority in rank shall be calculated from
the enrolment date adjusted by any LWOP granted on enrolment and by any
seniority granted as part of the terms of enrolment. When a rank granted on
enrolment (other than Pte) is to acting/lacking qualification or
provisional status, the enrolment date adjusted by any LWOP granted on
enrolment shall be the seniority date until such time as the acting/lacking
qualification or provisional rank is converted to substantive rank. Upon
attaining substantive rank, the enrolment seniority date shall be adjusted
by the seniority granted as part of the terms of enrolment offer, and will
be authorized in accordance with A-PM-245-001/FP-001, Military Personnel
Information System, Chapter 7, Annex G.

SENIORITY ON PROMOTION
23.    On promotion other than on enrolment, seniority shall be calculated as
follows:
     a.   Seniority in the rank of Cpl shall be calculated from the date of
          promotion to substantive rank. When a promotion to substantive
          rank was immediately preceded by acting rank, the date of
          seniority shall be adjusted to the date of promotion to acting
          rank.

     b.   When appointment is to MCpl or promotion to substantive rank
          higher than Cpl, seniority shall be calculated from the first day
          of January of the year in which the promotion was effective.

     c.   When appointment is from acting MCpl to substantive MCpl, or
          promotion from an acting rank higher than Cpl, seniority shall be
          calculated from the first day of January of the year in which the
          promotion to acting rank was effective.

Note -- Time in an acting-while-so-employed rank, whether paid or unpaid,
shall not earn seniority in that acting rank.

LEAVE WITHOUT PAY
24.    LWOP granted on enrolment shall not count as qualifying time for
promotion. Effective 1 Jun 86, all other LWOP of 120 days duration or less
shall count for promotion. LWOP of a duration of greater than 120 days may
count as qualifying service in total or in part as specified by the
approving authority of the leave. When a promotion instruction contains the
name of a member who is on LWOP, the CO shall advise NDHQ/DPCAOR of the
circumstances including commencement and termination dates. NDHQ/DPCAOR
will advise the CO whether the promotion will stand; will be cancelled, or
will be deferred.

PROMOTION IN FINAL YEAR OF SERVICE
25.    A member is not normally eligible for promotion under the following
conditions:

     a.   Superseded by ADM(HR-Mil) Instruction 05/05

     b.   commencement of retirement leave as defined in QR&O article
          16.18; or

     c.   the member is either released or transferred on release to the
          Reserve Force and notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing
          transferred on release to the Supplementary Ready Reserve (SRR)
          or Supplementary Holding Reserve (SHR).

OCCUPATION TRANSFER
26.    A member of the rank or appointment of Cpl and above who accepts
voluntary OT is eligible for promotion until the date of OT to the new MOC.
When a promotion is issued prior to the effective date of a voluntary OT,
the member will be advised of the promotion through the CO who will ensure
the member acknowledges that the promotion does not affect the request for
voluntary OT, but that reversion to the rank of Cpl, in accordance with
paragraph 27, will take place one day prior to the date training in the new
MOC commences.

27.    Unless otherwise specified by the OT authority, a member above the
rank of Cpl shall relinquish that appointment or rank, effective the day
before the date when training in the new MOC is to commence, in accordance
with 11-12, Occupation Transfer of Non-commissioned Members-- Regular
Force.
28.    A Pte who has attained QL5A and who OTs to a new MOC as a Pte may be
promoted to Cpl when the time prerequisites of the new MOC have been met.
29.    A Pte who is authorized QL5AP on enrolment, re-enrolment or OT is
promotable to acting rank when all other prerequisites have been met.
30.    A member who is on OT ceases to be eligible for promotion in the
former MOC effective the date of OT in accordance with 11-12.

OTHER PREREQUISITES
31.    Rank prerequisites are specified in the tables in Annex A as Junior

imposed. NDHQ/DPCAOR may authorize attendance by members with physical
limitations in specific cases.

35.    When a member develops a medical restriction during the course, a

ANNEX B -- ACCELERATED PROMOTIONGENERAL
1.     A CO may nominate for accelerated promotion members with outstanding
ability, leadership, or supervisory potential. Accelerated promotion to Cpl
must be in recognition of demonstrated outstanding performance as a
tradesperson, whereas nomination for accelerated appointment to MCpl or

accelerated promotion to Cpl or appointment to MCpl but a member of the
rank of Cpl or above may be nominated for accelerated promotion only to the
next higher rank, including appointment to MCpl.
2.     A member's promotion shall not be accelerated through successive ranks
or to the same rank twice except as provided for in paragraph 7 of this
annex.
3.     Except as otherwise indicated, members governed by Tables 3, 4, 5, 7,
and 8 of Annex A are not eligible for accelerated promotion.
4.     Accelerated promotion of Pte/Cpl to MCpl in the INFMN, ARTYMN FD,

for nomination to accelerated promotion to Sgt.
5.     To be eligible for nomination for accelerated promotion, a member must
meet the prerequisites prescribed in Table 2 to Annex A and those in the
appropriate tables to this Annex. A member may be nominated for accelerated
promotion to Mcpl without being MOC qualified but may not be promoted until
all prerequisites are met. The CO shall negotiate priority coursing with
the appropriate career manager (CM).
6.     Excepting those MOCs to which the DAPS is applicable, as detailed in
Appendix 2, regardless of the date of nomination for accelerated promotion
to Mcpl or above, a special PER must accompany the submission; however,
this does not negate the requirement for an annual or posting PER as
applicable.

ANNEX B, APPENDIX 2 -- DELEGATED AUTHORITY PROMOTION SYSTEM (DAPS)
GENERAL

1.     This appendix outlines the DAPS policy and procedures for the
promotion of Ptes and Cpls to MCpl  in the CRMN 011, ARTYMN FD 021, ARTYMN
AD 022, INFMN 031, FLD ENG 041, and FEE OP 042 MOCs.  LMN 052 and RAD OP
211 MOCs may be included  under this programme when authorized by
NDHQ/DGPCOR.

2.     The purpose of DAPS is to permit qualified  members (Ptes and Cpls)
who have leadership potential, to be promoted to Mcpl when a specified
MOC's  current merit list has been exhausted of all suitable  Cpls for
appointment to MCpl, and a vacancy exists  at the MCpl level.

3.     A MOC that has appointment requirements at  the MCpl level that can be
met by the normal promotion system is not eligible for DAPS.

4.     Implementation of DAPS requires NDHQ/DGPCOR approval.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

5.     To be eligible for nomination for promotion to  MCpl, a Cpl or Pte
must be:

     a.   QL5A qualified; and

     b.   Combat Leader Course (CLC) or Infantry Section Commander's Course
          qualified.

PROMOTION -- CPL TO MCPL

6.     When implementation of DAPS is approved, Cpls on the current merit
list who are qualified and  suitable for promotion to MCpl, except for
meeting the  minimum time prerequisite, may be promoted to MCpl  effective
the date implementation was approved by  NDHQ/DGPCOR.

7.     Cpls nominated by the CO, and who meet the  eligibility criteria, may
be promoted to MCpl, effective  the date the unit vacancies are promulgated
by NDHQ/CM.

APPOINTMENT -- PTE TO MCPL

8.     Ptes who meet the eligibility criteria and are suitable for promotion
to MCpl under DAPS will be promoted to the substantive rank of Cpl by the
CO effective the date the unit vacancies were promulgated by NDHQ/CM and to
MCpl the day following the date of promotion to Cpl.

PROMOTION -- LAND OCCUPATION TRANSFER PROGRAMME (LOTP) CANDIDATES

9.     A LOTP candidate, having been accepted for OT, may be appointed MCpl
prior to commencement of any training required for OT without being
required to withdraw the LOTP application for OT in accordance with
paragraph 27 of this order.

PROMOTION AUTHORITY

10.    The authority for promotion to Cpl is the CO; the authority for
appointment to MCpl is DGPCOR.

REVOCATION OF MCPL APPOINTMENT

11.    Revocation of appointment to MCpl shall be in accordance with
paragraph 6 of this order.

12.    Ptes and Cpls who are appointed MCpl and whose appointments are
subsequently revoked will  retain the substantive rank of Cpl.

PROCEDURE

13.    Upon receipt of approval to implement DAPS, NDHQ/DPCAOR will promote
all Cpls who are on the merit list and suitable in all respects for
promotion to MCpl except for meeting the minimum time prerequisite in
accordance with paragraph 6 of this Appendix.  Cpls on the merit list who
are not qualified for promotion for reasons other than time in rank shall
be protected and may be promoted within the promotion year effective the
date the required qualification(s) is  attained.

14.    In accordance with the unit allocation, and target strength
permitting, COs will be advised by NDHQ/CM,  using the message format in
Appendix 3, of the available vacancies for appointment to MCpl. The CO
shall:  a. select the candidate;

     b.   verify that the member is fully qualified for promotion;

     c.   determine the effective date of promotion which cannot be prior
          to the date of the  NDHQ/CM message advising of the  vacancy;

     d.   advise and promote the member; and

     e.   request promotion promulgation from NDHQ/DPCOR in accordance with
          Appendix 3, paragraph 2.

Upon receipt of the unit request for promulgation, NDHQ/DPCAOR will
promulgate the DAPS promotion  message.

As you are being paid as a Cpl IPC/3 you will continue to be paid at that Level until such time as your Rank entitles you to be paid at that Rank Scale.  I am sure that if you follow the previous links, you will find the official word, and that is all that P2 FinClerk can quote you.  As an OCdt, it is time to start getting used to researching CFAO's, QR&O's, DOAD's and other DND Administrative links, as you will have to be the 'expert' when you get to 'lead men'.   

See CBI 204.211 (10)(a).  He'll get any incentive increases he would have received had he not been appointed OCdt.

ANNEX B, APPENDIX 4 -- ACCELERATED PROMOTION PTE TO CPL
COMMAND CEILINGS

1.     The accelerated promotion ceilings will be allocated to the following
functional commands or NDHQ groups:

FMC
AIRCOM
MARCOM
CFE
CFTS
CFCC
DG Exec Sec
ADM(Mat) (less NDHQ Personnel)
SURGEN, 1 Fd Hospital and DCIEM
CPD for CFRCs, CFSC, CLFCSC, CFSS, RMC,
RRMC and CMR
CFHMSS for NDMC, CF Hospital and Equipment
Depot

2.     Functional commands or NDHQ groups listed in paragraph 1 will be
provided with a computer printout of the number of Ptes(T) by unit
identification code (UIC) and MOC on command or group strength as of 31 Dec
annually. The command ceilings shall be 10 per cent of this total and will
be expressed in person-years or months.

3.     Information pertaining to a command or group ceiling will initially be
provided in two parts. Part 1 will indicate the MOC, the total number of
Ptes(T) in that MOC serving in the command or group, and the units by UIC
where these members are located. Part 2 will indicate the total number of
Ptes(T) at each unit within the command or group. A sample format is
outlined at Appendix 5.

4.     Commands and groups are responsible for the allocation and
accountability of their person-year ceiling. For example, a member
accelerated at 36 months requires one person-year; whereas a member
accelerated at 42 months requires, half a person-year. Person-months used
as a result of an accelerated promotion will be subtracted from the
command's yearly allocation at the time promotion is authorized and will
not be carried forward into the ensuing year.

DOCUMENTATION

5.     The only documentation required by NDHQ/DGPCOR for accelerated
promotion of Pte to Cpl under this policy is:

     a.   a copy of form CF 743A completed and distributed in accordance
          with Annex G; and

     b.   a request for QL5A training when the member is granted AUCpl.

PROCEDURES

6.     Accelerated promotion to AUCpl(LQ) or Cpl will be reported through
Unit Personnel Data Transaction (UPDT) in accordance with
A-PM-245-001/FP-001, Chapter 3, Annex B, Appendix 11.

7.     NDHQ/DPCAOR, appropriate CMs, and Director Personnel Information
Systems/Input Control Center (DPIS/ICC) shall be advised of reversions by
promotion authority using the format instructions outlined in
A-PM-245-001/FP-001, Chapter 7, Annex H. Unit UPDT action shall be
completed in accordance with Chapter 3 for Central Computation Pay System
(CCPS) input, ie, using the reversion entry 11.02.

2.     The terms offered on OT shall be in accordance with the provisions of
11-12.
TIME CREDIT FOR PROMOTION (TCP)
3.     Calculation of TCP is based on a member's previous service, rank, and
military and/or civilian qualifications. TCP may be granted by NDHQ/DPCOR
on enrolment or transfer and will determine, along with any seniority

a QL or rank qualification within a specific period, or a period of
observation is set by NDHQ/DPCOR, the effective date of promotion to
substantive rank or removal of the provisional status will be the date the
member meets the required standards on the first attempt. Where a member
fails to qualify on the first attempt, the case shall be dealt with by CRB.
Where a member fails to qualify in the time specified, NDHQ/DPCOR shall be
notified of the circumstances, in which case the following applies;
     a.   If the delay was due to Service reasons, an extension of
          qualifying period will be considered .

     b.   If the delay was due to other than Service reasons, the member
          will--

          (1)  be reverted to a lower rank (not below Pte(T)), or
               downgraded to a lower QL level for which the member can
               qualify;

ANNEX F -- ALTERATION OF PUNISHMENT AND PROMOTION FOLLOWING REDUCTION, REVERSION AND RELINQUISHMENT OF RANKGENERAL
1.     This Annex amplifies  QR&O 3.08, 11.10, 11.11, 11.12, and prescribes
the policy relating to alteration of a punishment of reduction in rank as
well as that relating to the promotion of members who have been reverted in
rank or have relinquished rank. In cases where a sentence is altered in
accordance with QR & O Chapter 114, Section 4, the policy also applies
to the altered sentence.
2.     When a member is reverted to a lower rank or is reduced in rank, or
relinquishes rank, that member is eligible to count for seniority in the
lower ranks together with all previous service in the higher rank or ranks
together with all previous continuous service in the lower rank.
3.     Except for paragraphs 6, 11, 13 and 15 of this Annex, where a member
who has been reduced in rank is subsequently promoted, seniority in the
higher rank is determined in accordance with paragraph 23 of this order.
4.     Except for paragraph 22 of this annex, where reversion, reduction, or
relinquishment in rank is other than to Pte, eligibility for promotion to
MCpl or above shall be based on the criteria specified in Annex A.
Note -- Seniority has no bearing on entitlement to incentive pay. Incentive
pay shall be applied in accordance with 204-2.
REDUCTION
5.     When reduction in rank or loss of seniority occurs as a result of a
sentence by a Service tribunal, the CO shall notify NDHQ/DPCAOR by message
stating:
     a.   the member's SIN, rank, name and MOC; and

     b.   the rank to which the member has been reduced and the effective
          date of reduction or, in the case of loss of seniority, the
          amount in years, months, or days, the new seniority date, and the
          effective date of the punishment.

6.     When a Cpl (including MCpl appointment) is sentenced to a punishment
of Service imprisonment or detention and the sentence is suspended, the CO
may grant A/Cpl(P) rank. If the member is subsequently committed, prior to
signing the committal order, the CO shall revoke the A/Cpl(P). Where a
period of suspension of sentence is completed, during which time a member
has held an A/Cpl(P) rank, promotion to substantive Cpl may be authorized
effective the day following completion of a suspended sentence.
Determination of seniority will be:

     a.   if promoted A/Cpl(P) the date of sentence, from the member's last
          previous date of promotion to Cpl; or

     b.   if promoted A/Cpl(P) during a period of suspension of sentence
          effective a date other than the date of sentence, from the
          member's last previous date of promotion to Cpl, less the number
          of days of the suspension of sentence served at the private rank.

7.     Following termination of service imprisonment or detention, the CO may
promote a qualified member to Cpl. The seniority date in such cases shall
be:

     a.   if the effective date of promotion is the day following release
          from detention or imprisonment, the date of the member's last
          previous promotion to Cpl; or

     b.   if the effective date of promotion is any other date, the date
          determined under paragraph 24 of this order.

8.     Eligibility for subsequent promotion will be determined by the first
merit board convened following the date of promotion providing the member
meets the criteria in the Tables to Annex A.

9.     When the findings of a Service tribunal who sentenced a member to a
punishment of reduction in rank have been quashed by an authority pursuant
to  QR&O 114.15 or 114.55, the member is deemed not to have been awarded
the punishment and that member's rank and seniority is that which was held
immediately prior to sentencing. Where the reduction has been from MCpl
appointment, the quashing authority may direct reinstatement of the MCpl
appointment.

10.    A punishment imposed by a Service tribunal can be altered by remission
(cancellation in whole or part of sentence), commutation (changing the type
of punishment by awarding a punishment lower in the scale), or mitigation
(awarding a less amount of the same punishment).

REMISSION

11.    Where a punishment of reduction in rank is remitted, that is,
cancelled or withdrawn, the member will have the rank and seniority date
held immediately prior to the imposition of the punishment, as if no such
punishment of reduction in rank had been pronounced or as if the punishment
of reduction in rank had not been an obligatory accompanying punishment to
one of detention or imprisonment.

12.    Where a punishment of reduction in rank from the rank of Cpl,
resulting in the relinquishment of the member's appointment as MCpl is
remitted, the authority having power to appoint the member to MCpl may
direct re-appointment of the member to MCpl effective either as of the date
original punishment was imposed or as of any subsequent date.




COMMUTATION

13.    If a punishment of reduction in rank is commuted, that is, a
punishment lower in the scale is substituted, the member will hold the rank
and seniority date the member held immediately prior to the original
punishment being imposed, as if no such punishment had been imposed, except
where the punishment substituted by way of commutation involves a
forfeiture of seniority, in which case the seniority date in the rank held
immediately prior to the original punishment being imposed will be adjusted
by the amount of seniority forfeited under the new punishment.

14.    Where a punishment of reduction in rank from the rank of Cpl,
resulting in the relinquishment of the member's appointment as MCpl,
and in those cases where reduction was from Sgt and above, is commuted, the
authority having power to appoint the member to MCpl may direct
re-appointment to MCpl effective as of the date the original punishment was
imposed or as of any subsequent date.

MITIGATION

15.    If a punishment of reduction in rank imposed on a member is mitigated,
that is, if a lesser amount of the same punishment is substituted, the
member will have seniority in the rank to which the member was reduced by
the new punishment, calculated from the seniority date when last in that
rank as if the member had remained in that rank from that time, provided
the member has had continuous service since that time.

16.    Where a punishment of reduction in rank from a rank above Cpl imposed
on a member who previously held the appointment of MCpl is mitigated to a
punishment of reduction in rank to Cpl, the authority having the power to
appoint to MCpl may direct re-appointment of the member to MCpl effective
either as of the date the original punishment was imposed or as of any
subsequent date.

AUTHORITY

17.    The authority having power to appoint to MCpl is NDHQ/DGPCOR.

REVERSION

18.    Subject to paragraphs 19 to 22 of this Annex NDHQ/DGPCOR may:

     a.   revert a member to a lower rank for inefficiency;

     b.   revert a member to a lower rank upon civil conviction for an
          offence that constitutes misconduct; or

     c.   with or without reversion, transfer a member to any MOC for
          inefficiency.

19.    Any reversion or OT for inefficiency must be initiated by the member's
CO. The CO's recommendations shall be forwarded together with complete
substantiation to NDHQ/DGPCOR. After receipt of the CO's report and after
consideration of all aspects of the case, a CRB will authorize:

     a.   retention of the member in the current MOC, with or without
          reversion;

     b.   retention in the current MOC and restriction to the member's
          present rank and terms of service;

     c.   compulsory OT; or

     d.   release of the member.

20.    When a member is reverted for inefficiency, that member is not
eligible for promotion for a minimum period of one year following the date
of reversion. If, however, the reversion for inefficiency is due to a
career course failure, that member is eligible for promotion to substantive
rank upon successful completion of the career course which resulted in the
member's reversion.

21.    When a member is reverted and is OT for inefficiency, that member
becomes eligible for promotion to the next higher rank in the new MOC when
the eligibility criteria outlined in Annex A have been met. The effective
date of OT will be the date of reversion. Failure to qualify for the
appropriate level in the new MOC within a period specified by NDHQ/DPCOR
may result in release action being taken.

22.    When a member has been convicted for an offence by a civil authority,
a report is submitted to NDHQ/DPLS (Director Personnel Legal Services)
under the provisions of  QR&O article 19.62 and the CO shall review the
circumstances of the offence and determine if a recommendation for
reversion for misconduct is also warranted under  QR&O article 11.11.
Where a recommendation for reversion is warranted, complete substantiation
made in accordance with paragraph 19 shall be forwarded to NDHQ/DGPCOR.

RELINQUISHMENT OF RANK

23.    For the purposes of this Annex, relinquishment of rank means reversion
to a lower rank at the member's request. Such requests may be for personal
reasons or for purposes of OT or transfer. The approving authority for
relinquishment of rank is N DHQ/DPCAOR.

24.    Relinquishment of rank will not be approved where such action would
permit early release of the member as a result of a change in the member's
retirement age.

25.    Except in the case of a transfer or OT, a member who relinquishes a
rank shall not be considered for promotion until such time as the promotion
authority is advised through normal channels that the member wishes to be

considered for promotion in the future.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ANNEX F, APPENDIX 1 -- GUIDELINES FOR ACTION TO ALTER A PUNISHMENT OF REDUCTION IN RANK
1.     The viewpoint required is one of "alteration of punishment" rather
than "promotion" or "restoration of rank".

2.     A sentence can be composed of one or more punishments. Each punishment
can be altered independently of action taken with respect to any other
punishment.

3.     The effect of commutation, mitigation or remission of the punishment
of reduction in rank does not depend on the particular sentence (that is,
detention, or reduction and fine, or reduction alone, etc) that was chosen
by a Service tribunal.

4.     By virtue of section 185 of the National Defence Act (NDA), a
commutation, mitigation or remission of a punishment puts the new
punishment (or absence of it, in the case of remission) in place as if it
had been imposed at the time of the initial sentencing. The mitigation,
remission or commutation of a punishment of reduction in rank may be made
at any time but, when made, has effect back to the sentencing date. The
date on which the CO or other authority acts (to remit mitigate or commute)
has no effect on the calculation of seniority.

5.     Occasionally a CO or OCC wishes a punished NCM to endure the full
effect of rank reduction for a specific period or until there is evidence
that the NCM has learned a lesson, then to be placed back in the original
rank effective a date subsequent to initial sentencing. This cannot be done
by mitigation, remission or commutation; it can only be done by promotion.

6.     MCpl appointment held at the time of sentencing or anytime prior to
sentencing will not be recovered automatically when an authority remits,
mitigates or commutes the punishment or reduction in rank. The appropriate
appointing authority may choose to reappoint the member to MCpl. The
effective date of reappointment may coincide with the original sentencing
date or may be any subsequent date.

7.     Example situations

     a.   Sgt X; seniority date in that rank is 1 Jan 85 and seniority in
          Cpl rank was 4 Aug 73; sentences 16 May 86 to 3 months
          imprisonment; serves 62 days; in September the OCC mitigates the
          reduction in rank punishment to reduction to Cpl.

          Result: Cpl X is considered to have never gone below Cpl rank;
          seniority is what it would have been if Cpl X had not been
          promoted to Sgt.

     b.   Sgt Y; seniority date 1 Jan 83; sentenced 20 Jun 86 to 30 days
          imprisonment; serves 22 days; in September 86 the OCC remits
          reduction in rank punishment.

          Result: Sgt Y is considered to have never lost Sgt rank;
          seniority is unchanged.

     c.   MCpl Z; seniority date 10 June 81; sentenced 15 Aug 86 to 30 days
          detention; serves 22 days, in Nov 86 the CO recommends that MCpl
          Z be reinstated as MCpl effective 22 Dec 86.

          Result: The reduction in rank punishment may not be remitted
          effective 22 Dec 86; the only available effective date is 15 Aug
          86. To achieve the objective of keeping ex-MCpl Z at Pte rank 15
          Aug -22 Dec the OCC may recommend promotion to Cpl, effective 22
          Dec, and may recommend (or direct) appointment of Z as MCpl
          effective 22 Dec or a later date.

lazy OCDT's eh hows this 10 years in the CBI's change near daily and the ones regarding pay are almost completely written in NDHQese, so forgive me for asking the SME for advice (by the way the last tp cdr/divo I asked for advice on pay matters cost me nearly $2600 because he didn't know and instead of sending me the way of the pay office winged it) but then again I always thought that was a sign of leadership asking the sr NCO's for adivce

You're right about the changing regs.

When I was a new Clk, all our pubs were printed - an amendment list came out every two weeks (as I recall - timing may have been different, but it was on a regular schedule), there was a brief synopsis sheet on the front, which was passed around, and everybody knew what had been amended.  The junior clerk physically entered the amendments into the book.  I worked for two Chief Clerks who (no kidding) had the majority of the CFAOs and QR&Os MEMORIZED.  When an amendment came out, they knew what had changed, and read those amendments.  Even for those of us with less prodigious memories, it was possible to "know" the answer without looking it up, if it was an area with which you were familiar.

When the current electronic system came in, it was no longer possible to do this (even I had a LOT of the CFAOs memorized).  You NEVER knew when there had been an amendment - this meant that a Clk had to PHYSICALLY LOOK UP THE ANSWER, every time there was a question - you THOUGHT you knew, but you could never be sure.  This lead to a significantly increased time for clerks to answer counter queries.

Of course, then we amalgamated three trades, leaving even LESS time for Clks to answer questions - do you see where I'm headed here?

Taking care of your troops is a LEADERSHIP function - not a clerical one.  Clerks can ASSIST you with that function, but they can't DO it for you.  If you desire to be an effective officer, you need to get familiar with the pubs - and THAT is all George and kincanuks were attempting to steer you toward realizing.  (Oh - and learning NDHQese is ALSO a required skill for Officers (and Sr NCO/WOs).

ANNEX G, APPENDIX 1 -- UER QUALIFICATION RECORD SHEET

This image is in the process of being rescannedClick Image To Get Expanded View

Issued 1991-05-10

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ANNEX H -- CONTINUOUS MERIT LIST (CML)BACKGROUND
1.     The CML is a procedure to facilitate the CM's ability to forecast
promotions into the ranks of WO, MWO, and CWO which will improve the
management of CF personnel at these rank levels. It is based on the
establishment of a protected window, i.e., that point on a merit list above
which members are protected for promotion into the following year.
SIZE
2.     The protected windows will be established at 70 per cent of the
maximum annual promotion forecast contained in the Long Range Planning
Model (LRPM) over a five-year period for each rank level (WO, MWO, CWO) in
MOCs where the promotion flow is greater than one. The size of the window
may be adjusted, as necessary, by DGPCOR.
ELIGIBILITY
3.     To be eligible for entry into the protected window, a member must meet
and maintain the prerequisites for promotion.
REMOVAL FROM THE WINDOW
4.     Once placed within the window, a member can be removed only by:
     a.   promotion;

     b.   release;

     c.   CMRB;

     d.   CRB; or

     e.   change of circumstances report initiated by the member's CO.

5.     A member ineligible for entry or who is in the window and whose
circumstances change, will be dealt with by normal staff action by the unit
and the case will be sent to NDHQ/DPCAOR for decision. DPCAOR will make one
of the following decisions:

     a.   the member is to remain in the window;

     b.   the member is to be removed from the window and protected for the
          period of the current merit list (31 Dec) for the entry into the
          window in competition with the member's peers, should the member
          become eligible again (ie; C&P);

     c.   the member is to be removed from the window and protected until
          the case is resolved in accordance with current policy (ie,
          temporary medical); or

     d.   the member is removed from the window and is no longer eligible
          for entry into the window during the period of the current merit
          list.

NOTIFICATION

6.     As members in the window are promoted, they will be replaced in
sequence by qualified members below the protected window. Notification of
entry into the window will be by message from NDHQ/DPCAOR2. During the
active posting season (APS), due to the large number of promotions, members
may enter the window and be promoted without being informed of the window
entry.

Issued 1991-05-10


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ANNEX J -- NON-COMMISSIONED MEMBER'S MERIT BOARDSGENERAL
1.     The promotion system in the CF is based on the merit principle, as
determined by performance and potential. Merit boards are convened and
administered annually by NDHQ/DGPCOR.
OBJECTIVES
2.     The task of the merit board is to compile a merit list for each rank
and MOC from which personnel will be selected during the ensuing calendar
year for either promotion or selective re-engagement or both. There may be
more than one merit list for selected MOCs, or for those MOCs that include
more than one speciality.
COMPOSITION
3.     The composition of merit boards, subject to DGPCOR approval, is as
follows:
     a.   Merit boards considering only Cpls and MCpls are composed of--

          (1)  chairman-- Maj; and

          (2)  members-- Capt, and 2 NCMs of either CWO or MWO rank.

     b.   Merit boards considering all ranks, or Sgt and above in the case
          of split boards, are composed of--

          (1)  chairman-- LCol; and

          (2)  members-- Maj, Capt, and CWO (MWO if not available).

     c.   Regimental promotion boards are convened annually for MOCs-- 01 1,
          021 and 022, 031, 041 and 042, and are composed of--

          (1)  chairman-- BGen, Col, or LCol; and

          (2)  members-- LCol, Maj, Capt, and CWOs (MWO if necessary) from
               applicable field units.

4.     Board members will be selected from units, commands and NDHQ to ensure
that each board has the necessary technical expertise, element
representation, and official language representation. Except in certain
circumstances members will not be allowed to serve two consecutive years.

Wow.....an enlightening moment. I'm guilty of having thought (quite often in some units  ::) ), that clerks "used to be so switched on." Where my default was to blame the generation/training system/Vitamin D deficiency/etc.....it hadn't occurred to me to consider the means of promulgation. I remember, as a Duty NCO in one unit, a recurring task was to ink-amend CFAOs (especially if you had neat handwriting). And I did draw Duty on a semi-regular basis   :-[

How about that.....despite having spent the day in NDHQ, I just now learned something  ;)

So - I take it that you have neat handwriting, and that's why you drew so many duties??

As a matter of fact, it was my MESSY handwriting that got me hooked into the trade of Adm Clk.  It's a long story, which I may have told elsewhere here.

As semiskilled, you will get advanced standing as a Pte after BMQ (which means higher pay). If your trade qualifications are sufficient, you may only do partial QL3 (maybe even partial QL5) to complete that level of training. In most tech trades, you need QL5 to qualify for Cpl.

The only "instant" promotions to Cpl I have ever seen after Basic where individuals that were previously trades qualified, released and then re-enrolled.

Wook

I entered as semi skilled Direct entry.  I came in as a Cpl upon succesfull completion of my BMQ.  I received my promotion on my grad parade at BMQ.  I was never in the reg or reserves before.  I just happen to have a #$%^ load of education to come in as a Cpl.  In the tech trades (I am an ATIS tech)  you come in QL3 by- pass if you come in DE.  However not QL5.  No you don't need your QL5 to be promoted to Cpl.  The LCIS techs don't even have a course yet (they are still working on that in Kingston, should be soon they have it up and running) and ATIS techs have a OJT (On the Job Training) package.  I have been in for 1.5 years and have just finished my OJT pkg and should be getting my spec pay shortly.  You only need the QL5 for spec not for your Cpl's.  Hope this clarifies.
