Post by: mike1234 on May 08, 2007, 18:23:32
I'm swearing in on the 28th of June........ I'm also going out west to PPCLI after. 

I'm hoping for 1st or 3rd as well.  I've lived in Edmonton for a few years already a while back and I really like theh city.  Plus, Shilo doesn't really seem like its a booming metropolis of fun, but I could be wrong.

Post by: Arsenal on May 09, 2007, 12:07:24
I was supposed to be sworn in on the 28th too, they called yesterday and changed it to the 5th of July, something about having to be within 30 days from oath to BMQ... I wonder if they'll changed yours to the 5th.

Hey Arsenal,
They did change the date of my swearing in to July 5th, so I guess I'll see you there.  I'll probably be on the same train to St. Jean as well.

Yes!

I am doing my medical on June 6Th, I am applying for infantry and seeing as there are starting dates for the 16Th of July, the 13Th of August it looks like I will be making it for summer time recruitment after all!!  ;D I will post as soon as I get my call, but that should not take place until about the second week of July.  :salute: Good night.

Josh, good luck.  I have had an application in since beginning of March, and haven't even been lined up for anything yet.
Title: Re: BMQ 13 August 2007. Anyone else joining me?
Post by: CfVet1r on May 12, 2007, 11:33:05
Hey stealthy

That's just about right, I went from February 24TH, until roughly 1 and a half weeks ago without hearing from them. So a total of 2 months and 2-3 weeks. I asked around and it is a matter of how busy they truly are. The thing is, you may get a call from the recruitment center for your aptitude, interview, and medical either on the same day/week/month. That to depends on how busy they are. The other thing that it falls on is what field you have applied for? Infantry moves quickly ( I just changed from Weapons Technician to Infantry) Just to give you an example the Weapons Tech interview is roughly 1- 1 1/2 hours, Whereas the Infantry interview lasted 30-45 minutes.

Keep in mind There is no problem with calling and asking them if they have a rough idea of how many weeks it could be. They told me 8 weeks, it took 10, but I did notice the Mtl based recruitment office has been quite busy everytime I have went since February.

I wish you the best of luck seeing as I am pretty sure that everyone here who has applied to date would like to leave before September  ::). Thanks though. BTW *correction from my prior post, I meant I should not hear from them until about the second week of June..  :salute:

PS. Running time!!

Yeah, I recieved my offer the other day, for Infantry PPCLI BMQ starting on the 13th.  I'm just waiting for my package, and the specifics of my offer, and enrollment.  I'm very excited to get started.  I'm just wondering, though, if there were other people who weren't told where there BMQ was being held when the got there offer?  It might have just been that I was too excited to remember to ask when I got the call.  Hope to see some of you there.

Post by: stealthylizard on May 15, 2007, 22:46:58
Wow, I thought all Reg Force was done through St Jean, I guess that has changed.  My apologies. The Canadian Forces recruiting website should update their information then:

Basic Military Qualification

The first stage of training for everyone is the 13-week Basic Military Qualification (BMQ) course at the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec.

The demands on the system being what they are these days, the Cf has had to conduct BMQ at several other locations.  This is not the first time the CF has done this.  Regardless of where the training is done, the syllabus is the same and overseen  by CFLRS.

My swearing in is on 31 July in Ottawa. I got a letter in the mail today with joining instructions and lists of things to bring to St Jean. I'm sure it's something everyone gets, you can find it on the CFLRS website.

I currently live in Petawawa on base with my husband and have already told them that I will be driving to BMQ, that way if I ever get time off I am definitely coming home. We have spent most of the past year apart already, I will take advantage of any time to get home.

I'm in the exact same bout.. I reapplied back in Feb 07, my VFS is all done just waiting for the call for interview/med... waiting has sucked but in the long run it'll be worth it... hearing peoples stories is also pretty cool though and encouraging

Congrats Sixshooter, as someone who's reapplying after a VR myself it's good to hear your wait wasn't too long.. good luck.

What are the chances there being a BMQ in St. Jean in September if there is one Aug 13? I have a work term for school that ends Aug 31 and the Recruiting Officer said that there would most likely be a BMQ beginning of Sept.  Would it be likely they would have them this close together?

Edit: I was lookin on the forums and saw various dates around this time, so I don't think I need to worry.  DISREGARD.

That will probably be one of my biggest concerns.  I just start to get caught back up again, and get laid off due to seasonal employment, and fall behind.

  Wow all the infantry types start BMQ after me .. I start in St. Jean july 16 also infantry PPCLI . Maybe we'll end up on the same BIQ. Im not quite sure what to think about my training timeling , BMQ July 16 - Oct 19 . Im not sure if BIQ would start before the christmas break or after the new year ... Anyone know ?
Title: Re: BMQ in August 2007 - anyone going ?
Post by: WinterJet on June 21, 2007, 17:23:50
Well you gotta do SQ after BMQ, and I imagine they won't start SQ until after Christmas, so I guess we might be on the same SQ course and then I guess same BIQ course.

Well you gotta do SQ after BMQ, and I imagine they won't start BMQ until after Christmas, so I guess we might be on the same SQ course and then I guess same BIQ course.

  I was under the impression that all infantry do BMQ 13 weeks and then enhanced BIQ 14 weeks. All other MOCs do the 4 week BMQ Land ( SQ ) after BMQ. Correct ? ... My original questions was would I start my BIQ before or after the holidays? Which brings me to another question if i were to start BIQ after the new year what would i be doing from the time i finish BMQ Oct. 19 - my BIQ start date in January ?
Title: Re: BMQ in August 2007 - anyone going ?
Post by: WinterJet on June 22, 2007, 00:11:54
I have no clue, bro.. maybe you're right. I finish BMQ in late November, and it'd make no sense for them to start SQ before Christmas break, so I don't see myself starting whatever is next until the new year.

Congrats fellas, see you on course! For those of us who are taking the train from London,Windsor area,I learned the other day that once we arrive,if there is not enough of us for a military transport to pick us up at the train station,we will have to take a cab which is around $100.00.So I guess we can wait and see what happens, perhaps splitting this cost when the time comes would be in our best interests.

1. Use Capitals and proper grammar it's a rule around this site and helps the rest of read and understand what you are saying.

2. You are not in the PPCLI your a recruit going to St Jean, you will be "IN" the PPCLI when you pass Battle School and get badged.

3. Being a cadet wont help you much in fact stop that line of thought right now, Do what the Instructors tell you and forget the phase "But when I was in Cadet's" just don't say it. Don't say it to your course mates and don't for the love of god say it anywhere near an Instructor.

They let me know at the DND that once we arrive if there is not enough of us for a "military transport" to pick us up we will be required to take a cab, she quoted me a price of $100.00 which will be reimbursed at a later time.

I don't recall the exact number, but it was under 10..I believe 8 or so.However I only have heard of 3-4 of us taking the train.Nothing to really worry about I guess, I just wanted to put that out there so we can be aware of the issue, and not get there standing around waiting for a ride that just may never come.

You'll probably have to get a cab.. when I went last fall almost all the guys coming to st jean via train had to get one... I  came via plane from Halifax and it seemed like the whole plane was full of recruits lol..we had a bus waiting for us at the airport (look for the guys in military uniform).. last fall I paid like $85 for a cab to the airport fr. st jean (when I VR'd/ left early- huge mistake, don't do(you'll regret it) unless its a emergency).. all travel expenses are reimbursed via travel claims (keep your receipts)

Well the date kinda struck me a little odd, because CFRC told me August 12th to Nov 16th... Which compared to you is a week or two earlier start and about 2 weeks extra on the end.. I thought it was a long time, so I questioned them and they confirmed it. That time frame is a little over 14 weeks.

Your time frame isn't even 10 weeks. 8 weeks from Aug 27th to Oct 27th, and then less than a week to Nov 3rd.. that's 9 weeks. Wanna switch?  :dontpanic:

Apparently my background check is taking longer than usual in Ottawa,  I may have some debt collectors that need to be paid.  I was hoping to go Aug 6 but if the ceremony has already been held am i too late? is there another BMQ in September? anyway my career counselor said he'd call me within a week and let me know whats going on.

I'm taking the train (#70) on Aug. 4th at 9:50 or so out of Oakville.  Then I think there's a connection in Toronto to Montreal.  Just got sworn in today at CFRC London and all went really well.  Just wondering when they're going to come and get my stuff to put it storage for me........ should find out soon I hope.

Hahaha Mike I was the dude in black with the mad amount of stitches and staples in my head.. Someone cracked me a few times with a baseball bat Saturday night.. Anyways see you on the train.

Since a few of us are gonna be on the same train, i have an "exciting" way to pay for the cab. What we can do is group together and we all do paper rock sicissor and the odd one out has to pay, i think that would make it a lil bit funner. We'd get reimburst any way so it doesn't really even matter.
Title: Re: Aug BMQ, Anyone else?
Post by: eager_beaver on July 29, 2007, 17:22:55
Or ...since we have all been working on our running anyways, we could have the driver stop 1-2 km away from the base and when hes not looking everyone make a break for it.The slowest guy who gets caught has to pay. ;D But really...im willing to pitch in to help out with the fare.

I told everyone I don't want a going away party. I haven't had beer or pop in around 1 month since they're both unhealthy. But it's more exactly that, it'll just make it harder to leave.

Then yesterday he says Friday (the 3rd, the day before my flight) is a long weekend day so most of us won't be working and lured me out with paintball. So I'm going to have to disappear to avoid drinking excessively, haha. Not as bad as my one friend though who had a going away party the day before that went until 2 am and had to be at the airport at 7. Ya I'm looking forward to meeting all the crazy army.ca people too.

And the fact i just turned 19 and get into bars without having to scrounge up someone Else's id doesn't help ether. but I'm in the best shape Ive been in my whole life.

I'm going Comm. Research, starting on the 20th.
I'll be heading to St-Jean from North Bay but I am taking a pit stop in Ottawa for the weekend. If anybody else is taking the bus from Ottawa on the 19th, or anywhere else for that matter, and transferring from Ottawa to a Montreal bus, we could set something up. It would certainly make the bus/taxi ride less boring and might make the whole experience a little less stressful.

For the guys leaving on the 4th, what else did you pack aside from the listed articles to bring? Did you bring extra clothes to wear for once we are able to leave base, mp3 player, heat rubs,  etc etc...
Title: Re: Aug BMQ, Anyone else?
Post by: Not_So_Arty_Newbie on August 01, 2007, 04:11:54
If you packed enough civi clothing for 4 days it should cover you for your 2 day weekends when you are no longer confined to base, as for MP3 Player sure helps pass time while your polishing boots or sewing nametags into your underkeks but don't go overboard with the techno crap, even heat rubs and such, iffy, doesn't hurt but your personal box to store that stuff in is a shoe box.

Well, I have two pairs of running shoes and one pair of casuals for the trip.  As well as all detergent, iron, alarm clock.....blah,blah....you have the same list.

I have all that in a big duffel bag and a regular sized backpack which I'll keep on the train.  As for extra clothes, I has a couple shorts, a couple pants (including the ones I'm wearing), 5 t's, a few sweaters, a couple of dress shirts and my leather jacket.  All my other clothing is in storage untill I'm done with all the training, so I hope I have enough.....

I don't really think it's too much, but I guess that's open to interpretation....... and potentialy, as you said, a lot of yelling.  Do you happen to know if you're allowed to take vitamins and allergy pills there...... I get pretty sneezy without the Reactin.
Title: Re: Aug BMQ, Anyone else?
Post by: jayD on August 03, 2007, 18:56:43
Hmm, i bought some extra stuff to help with the cleaning but i have 2 semi big duffle bags, and my backpack but thats pretty much empty. The backpack is more for stuff that i would like at hand during the trip there and for weekends off to carry stuff. For some reason it seems like i have too much to carry. I hope there is enough room to store it all.
Title: Re: Aug BMQ, Anyone else?
Post by: Dontgo on August 03, 2007, 19:14:34
I know you need to have your prescription for medical stuff. I'm sure you can get some at Canex though, I heard they have "EVERYTHING" there. I'm sure that includes reactin and more cleaning supplies (ie. swiffer).

I'm pretty sure you'll have enough room to store it all. You have your room and then a seperate storage locker for your civi stuff which apparently they're not allowed to look in. So if you're bringing MP3 players and such I'd suggest "storing" it there.
Title: Re: Aug BMQ, Anyone else?
Post by: jayD on August 03, 2007, 19:17:50
Mp3 players arnt allowed? It didnt say anything about them not being allowed and on one of the basic up video's or one of the other videos about basic training it showed a recruit listening to one while cleaning is weapon.

Dontgo, a buddy of mine who's going through for infantry right now went straight from BMQ to his combined SQ/BIQ.  He said they just called it advanced BIQ though, because it's about 4 weeks longer than the old BIQ course, but cancels out the need for a separate SQ course.  I don't know if this is the way it will be for all new recruits, but to the best of my knowledge you heard correctly.  I'm leaving on the 12th for St. Jean, and I'm just going to try to take everything as it comes, and not try to plan too far ahead.  I don't want to start counting on anything, because my friend started his advanced BIQ in May in Shilo and was told he would be 2PPCLI.  This was good, because Shilo is only 40 minutes from his home.  All his family, and friends live nearby, and were excited he would be staying home.  He just found out last week though, that they are all going to Edmonton now.  He is fine with it, because he just wants to go wherever his guys are going, but, needless to say, his family is disappointed.  I guess its all just part of the lifestyle.  Goodluck on your course to everybody who's going.

They told us some numbers while we were being sworn in. Although it was pretty mixed in with the 4 hours of paperwork and with nothing with it listed in front of me I can't remember mine.

Assuming you had the exact same process as I did. The sheet is in the left side of your welcome aboard folder from signing in. It's the typed out sheet that as a rookie is impossible to read for the most part. Line 3. has a series of numbers in a bracket the last portion of those seem to be your platoon number.

I seem to be in 0076 if I'm right on that being the correct number.

I've taken the sad numbers they've got listed on the site and made sure I trump them. (11:56 2.4k run, like 20pushups/situps. )
If there's another one I'm not all that aware of it, I'm still letting my leg heal up from hurting it when training for running so I might not be able to do that part. Is that what you're referring to?

While I'm posting here, has anybody had any better luck than I have to get legal size lined paper for their autobiography. I've typed one up and am ready to copy it out by hand, but the requirements list legal lined paper instead of letter (regular 8.5x11, they're asking us to use 8.5x14 for anybody who hasn't noticed). Not sure why it is but the only place I could think of to get it (Staples) doesn't carry legal lined paper. Or at least didn't at the time.

yeah I found some 8.5 by 14 I live in Brandon and we have a store called Christies office plus and they carry 2.56 for a hundred sheets.  I can do all the fitness test except my push ups are sad, I hope they let you improve on one thing with out going to warrior platoon.  I dont know if "legal" paper is a term or something to do with the legal system, but maybe try a lawyers office, if they have it they love money im sure they'd sell you some.

Gman I'm on the same boat as you man. I broke my collar bone a few months back and I still cant do as many pushups as i could. I'm still trying to improve my pathetic 27 pushups. What are you at for pushups right now, and whats your course date?

Lucky you, http://www.forces.ca/v3/engraph/resources/howtojoin_en.aspx?bhcp=1 if you check the physical fitness guide the pushups required are only around 20 I believe (The PDF just keeps locking up on my PC for some reason). 27 is above the requirement so no warrior platoon for you. Personally I've heard there's a beep test when we arrive to make sure we don't need a warrior platoon and having recovered from a shin splint for about a week and a half before I go I'm hoping I'm up to par for the running requirements.

I'm hoping Canex might have some legal paper because at this rate I'm assuming I might have to write my autobiography up on letter and just rewrite it when I get there.

yeah I cant even do the 19 push ups, gets better every day though, and to top it all off I just got a really bad cold.   I would think they are reasonable though with the test, like if your close you can improve.  (I hope) anyone leaving 19th from Winnipeg?
