Title: After Basic Training
Post by: JacJac on January 03, 2012, 22:10:22
Hello, I am interested in joining the Canadian Army but am unsure what happens after basic training. Will I be deployed? Thank you very much for your help.

He was being sarcastic. No, you will not be deployed right after basic training. There are several other courses you will have to be successful on in order to be employed in a "deployable" position. There are numerous threads on this and it is trade specific.

We are not in the business of taking barely trained recruits and kicking them out the door to "the front".

Hey I just saw someone going into their pre-employment interview and at their local CFRC and saying with a straight face that are expecting to be deployed 15 weeks after getting sworn-in. :)

You have to go learn the trade you joined to do.

It depends on your element/trade. Use the search function above and all your questions will be answered. Suffice to say, if you are enrolled, if you are successful on BMQ/BMOQ and the various other courses, you probably aren't going anywhere soon.

Start by deciding what trades you are interested in........then maybe we can help you. Everything after basic depends on the trade.

Clear ?

Infantry soldier. I'm sure it's a pretty popular trade.

It is also full.

Training after basic is either at Valcartier, Wainwright or Meaford, depending on which regiment you are recruited for.

This is for the Regular force of course. Reserve force is a bit different.

I never knew trades could be full. Will it ever have an opening? And how do I know which trades are full?

Clear a few hours out of your day, put on clean, presentable clothes, and visit your local Recruiting Centre.  They will be able to answer lots of questions for you including what is open.

No.  Current CF training includes courses on never getting sick, injured, old or dying.  The work environment is also such that no one will ever want to leave voluntarily or retire.  Therefore, the CF of the future will never be required to replace anyone as no one will ever leave.

Sometimes, I just can't help myself... ;D

Ah...
The CF has found the fountain of Youth and has reversed the aging process for all serving members.  No one that enters the forces shall age past the age they enter, and those past the age of 22 shall be reversed back to this age for all time.
