Re: Change from NCM to Officer during recruiting process

As you are now starting university, RESEARCH will be something that you will have to do to achieve the grades you will require to join the CAF as an officer.  Research shows initiative on your part.  You have in fact asked a very similar question to this a year ago.  Please refer to the answers you were given then.

Hi,

I've gone through every steps of the recruiting process as a NCM. I'm currently waiting for my medical file to return from Borden, Ontario. The waiting time is not really the issue.
The thing is in the meantime, I've started university (might as well do something while waiting) and I'm really starting to think about going to the Military College as an officer.

My question is: Is it possible to change during the recruiting process. All my tests would be the same, except the interview (which I'm ready to take again)? Or do I have the cancel my current application and start the thing fresh?

Thank you for your advice and your time,

P. Cuerrier
CF Candidate

You just need to contact your Recruiting Centre and ask for the change to be made.

Qualified for all 3 trades but what happens if my first option is closed
« Reply #52 on: December 10, 2015, 13:09:48 »
Can I move up my ED tech and Infantry to first and second and add vehicle tech as my third. After my CFAT test I sat down and spoke with my career counselor and I mentioned possibly removing ED Tech and adding Vehicle Tech in there instead and he said he could as I qualified for that as well but instead told him to leave it as is.

But I decided to consider a fourth option before hand in case one of my first options were to close so I could move up my list and bring it in as my third, is this possible?

They dont take in consideration the order you put your trade on. No matter wich one is first or second in your trade list, its all depend on the need of the CAF. So if you put 3 trades be prepare to answer question for all those in your interview when it come .  :subbies:

Change Occupation choice/Declne current
« Reply #59 on: September 04, 2017, 13:53:43 »
Hi there first time poster.

I recently applied for the forces did my test and passed with very high grades that I got an interview scheduled in 2 weeks already. At first reading how everyone had long wait times I applied into 3 in demand jobs but seeing as how I should apply in jobs that would make me move more and not sit at a comouter behind a sensor screen I would like to change my 3 choices. My end goal is to join the SAR tech and would like a job that would help me with that and keep me moving while being in the navy. I want to apply in MP, weapons engineer and something else.

How do I go about changing these choices and cancelling my interview?

I imagine calling my recruitment center in Montreal but they are not good on the phones after 60 failed called attempts for a past issue. would an email be proffessional enough for such detailed requests?

You imagined correctly...the but is just a hurtle.  And I'd say sooner than later...if you change your trade selections now, you'll cause them less work.
