Yep, I'm on a tasking tho, so it's not like I'm in a classroom doing nothing right now. But if the military wants me to get paid just to sit in a classroom, I'll do it, I don't care really.

Make sure you have a precise list of your employment and address history. Even if you only had a few days of unemployment or lived there for a few days, they need to know. Also, you don't have to put your previous work's manager or owner as a contact in your employment history. I had put the manager as the contact for that factory I used to work 10 years ago and he didn't know about me offhand and he doesn't have any list of labourers who used to work there. You can put co-workers - thank god I have them on my Facebook - cuz they only want someone who can verify your employment. If you work in a place through a temp agency, put the recruiter's number not someone from the company. Also, as for references, make sure you pick those people who are easy to get hold of. I had put a Member of Parliament, Broadway actor, and nobody picked up when guys from Ottawa called.

So yeah, I had to those all over again. Make sure you have precise list especially if you're someone who had various odd jobs along the way. Uni/College res are considered as your address too, even CFLRS!

Oh jeeze! Yeah I have a detailed list
Of all that (past Policing application) I tended to use some generic Human Resources numbers because hothead turn over in most of the oilfield companies I worked for in Alberta. I already know I’ll run into a couple employment verification problems... a few have closed up shop etc.

All part of it I guess, thanks for that advice though, appreciated.

Could be that there aren't any vacancies in the other element positions this year, or that someone finally realized that its stupid to have a purple trade that basically has 2 major posting areas, one as an Army unit and one in a headquarters.

Is that just based on the recruiting page?  00120 is low on Air Force and Navy, and have been for years.  The CM won't even entertain Navy or Air Force to Army DEU changes.

Applying for the AVOTP. COMM RSCH is my choice.

Questions I have are:
- POST QL3 how does it take to start and complete everything you need for QL5A?
- What is QL5 training for COMM RSCH? OJT and a task sheet/log book to complete? A course you have to get loaded onto?

Thanks in advance.

The Comm Rsch DP2 (QL5) is residential and will take place at CFSCE in Kingston.  It is about 2 months long.  Your Career Manager will load you on the course when/as seats become available.

While I am waiting to be loaded on a DP1 course, I have the opportunity to take some courses through Microsoft Total Access at globalknowledge.com  https://www.globalknowledge.com/ca-en/course/121362/microsoft-total-access-collection/
Would any of these modules in particular be useful to take?

If they're free, it can't hurt. Everything is computerized, so having good computer skills even if you don't want to go into the cyber realm is always good for any Sigs trade.
