CF SKilled Trade jobs; Jouneyman Status?
« on: October 29, 2013, 14:43:23 »
Am interested in a Skilled Trade job in the CF just had some questions. It says on the recruitment site that you are not required to be a journeyman in the trade you are applying for, is it unlikely to be selected without being a journeyman? and second question is, Do you obtain journeyman status through training and work in the CF if you do not already have it?  (I'm asking in general but am specifically interested in journeyman plumber form the PH tech or journeyman plumber/welder from Hull tech) . I tried checking the FAQ for trades but didn't link to anything.

1.  The CAF will train you.

2.  If you want to obtain Journeyman Status in the Province that you are living, you will be able to write/test/challenge the test on your own dime.  (Every province has their own standards.)  The CAF does not do that for you.

Great post. Even though it is old, could someone add what trade(s) and element(s) can earn each of those qualifications? For example, I am guessing that multiple trades can eventually earn QL5 Electrical Distribution.

Those are the trades. Only ED Tech is going to get ED Tech QL5.
