Hello Buck,
Thank you for the reply, and I would also like to know how many spots are left for DEO AEC for the current fiscal year?
As of today's date there are 3 positions remaining from the 17/18 Intake for AEC DEO.
For 18/19: https://milnet.ca/forums/index.php?topic=127069.0

Hello,

Is there any info on the number of positions left for Logistics Officer and Healthcare Administration Officer for fiscal 2017/2018? And as Buck said, if they are full, we can assume that selections for 2018/2019 DEO positions won't be until about March or April?

Thank you.

Hi buck,

Any chance you could post when ROTP civy U selection dates start to occur? Is it towards the end of the ROTP intake because they only make civy U selections after RMC spots are filled up or am I wrong?

Thanks.

As per last updated information according to my knowledge Infantry DEO has 80 openings for fiscal 18/19 and 18 opening left for 2017/18. Is there any channge or a reduced number from the current requirement?
Thanks

Depends on the occupation.  Some occupations are CivU only and have already started receiving offers.  CivU and RMCC (& CMR) offers go out at the same time.

The projected selection for DEO on 14-Feb did not occur.  This is why I do not give exact dates in my responses.  Selections can be cancelled or moved for a variety of reasons.

I'm assuming that you mean this for all DEO positions?

It seems that the 3 projected DEO selections since the new year have all failed to occur. Would you be able to shed any light as to what can be expected to happen next as a DEO candidate? Will the remaining DEO positions for 17/18 even be filled before the end of the fiscal year?

I've read that the hold up is all because of limited BMOQ spots for DEO candidates, is there a reasonably approximate date where these DEO spots at BMOQ will once again be freeing up?

Thank you.

That is true.  CFRG HQ holds the authority for recruiting and intake; however BMQ/BMOQ serials are controlled by CFLRS (Canadian Forces Leadership & Recruit School); at the moment CFLRS hasn't given it's course information to CFRG HQ for BMOQ so there's a delay.  I have been told this is in the process of being resolved; however that's the problem as it exists today.

Now I'm disappointed at the recruiter who told me back in late Spring of last year that there were no more positions available for DEO Int (which my degree is well suited for) and I settled for DEO Log.

DEO Int is very selective. While a person's education may meet the minimum requirements, it may not meet the preferred.  For DEO Int the preferred is a master degree, or an undergraduate with experience in int (e.g. CSIS).

Hope this helps.

Hey Buck,
Looking to see if projected Pilot Selections for Feb went through and if there is any 17/18 spots remaining.

Good Day, I'm not sure where you're getting this information but a Masters Degree is not "preferred" for IntO. 

For academics, the ideal is a Baccalaureate degree in Conflict Studies, Computer Science, Global Studies/Development, History, International Relations/Studies, Military and Strategic Studies, Political Science/Polics or a Bachelor of Engineering in Computers.  There is no mention of a Masters Degree in the Entry Standards.

As for the experience, the request is that someone has deployed operational experience (6 months cumulative) or at least 1 year of experience working in an intelligence or security position at a government agency department (e.g. CBA, CSC, CSE, CSIS, DFATD, DND, CAF, FINTRAC, OPP, PCO, PSC, RCMP, SQ, TC) or has attained the Source Handling Operator Course.

Hey Buck,

There was not a Selections for Pilot yet in February.  As of today's date there are still 20 positions remaining for Pilot DEO for 17/18.

There is a lot of mis-information out there.  For example, on CAF's own website it says;

HARDING: Or if you already have a degree in Geography, Economics, Journalism, International Studies or a related field from a Canadian university, you can move straight to the Forces under what’s called the Direct Entry plan with an officer’s salary, benefits and pension kicking in the day you join.

click on transcript.

As for the Master degree, I will attempt to locate the source, and post when it is found. As for now, I stand corrected.  Thanks Buck.

I don't know where you get your information but when I applied years ago for ROTP - Civilian University (declined the offer) and now for DEO, nowhere did it mentioned a Master's degree as a preference back then for DEO in the previous forces.gc.ca layout nor in the current layout.

Some of the videos are extremely old and haven't been updated for a very long time. Preferences should be considered as undefinitive preferences.

Hi OceanBonfire,

If you're interested in how to be more competitive for DEO int, I recommend that you speak with someone at the CFRC.

Good luck.

That is not part of the CAF website persay: considering the transcript starts off with

"I’m Major Jim Godefroy. I’m an Intelligence Officer from Montreal, Quebec, and I work at the Canadian Forces Joint Imagery Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.

And I’m Lieutenant Navy Sharlene Harding from Brampton, Ontario. I’m an Intelligence Officer serving with the Canadian Forces Support Training Group in Kingston."

The people in the video are Captain Nicholas Weishaar and Major Raphael Guy; so right there that should tell you the the transcript is not accurate.

I will let the Virtual Recruiting team know about the issue so that it can be taken up the Chain of Command and fixed.

Good Evening
     I was wondering if you could provide some information on the CEOTP-Pilot program. It is my understanding that this entry program is not normally fully filled and was wondering if selection for 17/18 is still possible or if it will be the 18/19 FY.  Also if possible could you provide details on how of this program is selected off the merit list. In the posting of entry program and selection dates there is no listing for CEOTP.  Is it selected on its own or does it fall under ROTP or DEO selection dates?

Thanks for The help.

Is there any news on the last selection date(s) for the 2017/2018 FY? I imagine they will be happening soon before we rollover to the 2018/2019 FY intake.

Thanks
