Hi Buck!

So I’m not sure if this has already been answered, if so I do apologize!

I was put on the competition list for infantry NCO just yesterday. I have a friend who is also on it and her recruiter told her that all BMQ spots were now booked until August.

I spoke with my recruiter and he told me that they do not have access to this information?

And so... I was wondering if you could confirm that I would not be going until at least August?

Thanks so much!

Good day,
I'm confused if you're going in as a DEO or NCM? You said infantry NCO and BMQ? BMQ is for recruits entering as a private and BMOQ as an officer. If you're DEO than you would be looking at the soonest bmoq date being August. If you're selected before then. If you're NCM than there may be more dates available and buck might know more about those dates. I was told for DEO selections to expect the bmoq serials to be August,  September and winter.

@buck I forgot to tag you in my above post!

This isn't social media, tags don't work here. Rest assured Buck will see the post, but I think you answered your own question. If the recruiting centre is telling you all BMQ spots are filled, then they're filled.

My recruiter has told me that he doesn’t have access to the information. A friend said her recruiter told her that. I don’t understand why one would say he cannot access the information and another can. That is why I would like to confirm.

Hi Buck, did selections end up happening on April 9th? I was told the next round for W TECH L were happening APRIL 9th and April 25th 2018.
When I asked, it was the 11th. They didn't have access to my file at the time or anything like that. I was just asking randomly with the Forces Jobs page.
So I don't know if I might've been selected on the April 9th date.
They said it could be up to 3 weeks before you're called about it. If I was to call my CFRC next week, would my file show any new info if I was lucky enough to be chosen?
Or would my file update in 3 weeks on their end?

Thank you for your time, Buck

Sorry I've been out of office at events; I'm not sure if that selection happened and with it being almost a month ago I know that selections have occurred since.  When a selection board occurs there are quite a few steps to the process and a few different cells that have to do work such as loading you on a BMQ/BMOQ, generating the offer panel, doing Quality Control on the file, and then informing the det that someone has an offer that can be tendered.  It can take 8-12 business days from selection date to offer date.

Looks like there was a major selection of DEO AEC very recently. Does anyone know how many positions are left now for this fiscal year?
Thanks.
It's very early still in the year I wouldn't start worrying about that yet (but I did check and there is close to 70% of positions remaining as of today's date).

Any information on recent or tentative MarTech or W Eng Tech selections this month?

Ref: https://milnet.ca/forums/index.php?topic=125930.0

Yes, selections are scheduled for every other week.

Hey buck,  wondering if selections happened for Firefighter last month. Thanks

Yes, there are still over 50% of the positions remaining as of today's date though.

Hey Buck,

Do you have any update about DEO intake numbers(2018/2019)?

Ref: https://milnet.ca/forums/index.php/topic,127069.0.html

Afternoon Buck,

Currently on the competition list for DEO Pilot. I was told by CFRC Montreal that there was supposed to be a selection sometime last week. Any information on DEO pilot intakes for the upcoming (read May) BMOQ courses? Or would the August course be the more realistic loading? Thanks for your continued information sharing, it's been a real boon throughout the process.

While there are still a few positions on the May BMOQ I wouldn't count on getting one of those positions; the positions that are there are likely due to individuals not accepting their offers and the numbers remaining are very small.  The August BMOQ's are the courses being loaded right now.

Kratz
I totally understand its a top to bottom approach in terms of competition list, Im specifically asking about infantry DEO officer selection dates have not occurred since last summer.  Im aware new people are added on weekly if not daily, Im just wondering is there a specific reason why Infantry is always left for the summer... is it because infantry school dates begin in december post BMOQ etc.  My other specific question is on selection itself how many months before a bmoq date is set does one get selected not as to how a competition list is crerated or selected.  Just wondering how far back candidates are selected for a specific BMOQ.

thanks !
I'm only quoting your last message but I'm responding to both in one.  Selections do no occur years in advance; this is impossible as the CAF works on the same Fiscal Year as the Government of Canada.  Here is the coles notes on selections slowing down last year: The normal intake in recruiting is around 5,400 - CFLRS is set up to train that many recruits in one year - last year the intake of the CAF was increased to roughly 6,034 (I think that was the final number) -so as you can imagine having a school process an additional 600 people caused some administrative hiccups and this is why selections for DEO slowed down; then when Recruiting started working on the new Fiscal Year they didn't have the dates of when the BMOQ's would run.  Now they do and selections for all occupations including DEO are ongoing.  For time frame any DEO offers being generated right now are for the 27-Aug BMOQ; once that course fills up they'll move onto the next course until it fills up and then the next one, etc etc.

Hi Buck,

I noticed that the '2018/2019 Paid Education Intake Numbers' thread has still not been updated in terms of SEELM Physio -- does this mean selection has not yet occurred for that entry stream? I was told to wait until the 18/19 FY to begin to be selected, but have yet to hear anything (ie. no replies to emails or calls).

Ref: https://navy.ca/forums/index.php/topic,127070.0.html

Updated it earlier today.  Depending on which SEELM Occupation you're trying to join is depending how comparative it will be; if you're applying for Physio or Social Worker feel free to reach out to me - if it's Chaplain you'll have to reach out to your CFRC for more information.

Hi Buck!

So I’m not sure if this has already been answered, if so I do apologize!

I was put on the competition list for infantry NCO just yesterday. I have a friend who is also on it and her recruiter told her that all BMQ spots were now booked until August.

I spoke with my recruiter and he told me that they do not have access to this information?

And so... I was wondering if you could confirm that I would not be going until at least August?

Thanks so much!

Not all people in recruiting have access to the same information in CFRIMS (Canadian Forces Recruiting Information Management System) so it is very possible that your recruiter cannot see the information.  With that said, although there are some serials that have anywhere from 1-6 spots unfilled it appears that 6-Aug is the BMQ serial that is being loaded with offers at the moment.

As an aside for new people on the thread, by him using "NCO" anyone with military experience knows that he meant "NCM" - an NCO is an NCM, just at a rank higher than Private/Ordinary Seaman (I don't have the regs handy but from memory a Corporal/Leading Seaman & Sergeant/Petty Officer 2nd Class are called NCO's - this also extends to MCpl/MS as that is not a rank it is an appointment).

For the ROTP 18/19 FY, are all of those numbers for students that would be going to university Sept 18-Apr 19, or does it include Sept 19-April 20. Also I noticed the Armd O and Arty O ROTP numbers did not move, have selections happened for that occupation? I also noted that Inf O went down, so was there already an Infantry O selection?

The numbers given are for anyone being enrolled between 1-April-2018 to 31-March-2019; traditionally individuals start school in September.
The numbers posted are for total intake, not how many are remaining.

Remaining spots are not numbers I have available as the selection list is currently protected within the RMC & selections teams; many applicants have been selected but offers have not been generated and as such the information is protected.

Hi Buck,

I was wondering how long it usually takes to hear if you got selected after a selection date. I am currently applying to ROTP Pilot and I was placed on the competition list April 3rd and I know that there was a selection on the 10th. If I haven't heard anything yet am I to assume that I wasn't selected on that selection date? Thanks for all your help!

Justadude,

If you search and read the site many of your questions have already been asked and answered:

from Buck_HRA
Quote
Selections will continue to occur until the specific occupation & entry plan has been filled with the number of applicants that the CAF has identified as requiring for that Fiscal Year.

Please note that the above are "general" guidelines and at any point a projected/schedule selection can be pushed/moved for a variety of reasons.

Time Frame: After a selection it can take 3-5 business days for a CFRC to be informed of who was selected, from there it can take another 5-7 business for an applicant to be informed (depending on the workload of a CFRC, and when the applicant is set to do BMQ/BMOQ).  This translates to a total of 8-12 business days from when a selection occurs to when the applicant is informed of the offer.

Specific Dates
Please note that Selection Dates are designed as a planning tool to help guide Recruiting Detachments in prioritizing files; as such specific dates of projected selections will not be posted.  The actual dates can change for a variety of reasons; and while there is information available to recruiters as to what the projected dates are, it does not manage the expectations of applicants to inform them that a selection will occur on a specific date only for it to be delayed.

As always the most accurate and up to date information is from your CFRC.

Hi,

Hope this hasn't been asked before but I couldn't find the answer with a cursory search. The info I'm seeing says DEO selections happen monthly, but is that referring to every position or just the DEO stream in general? I'm specifically interested in whether DEO pilot has monthly selections. Thanks for any information you can share.

Hey Buck!

I saw that August 6 was loading earlier this month from your post for NCM Infantry. I was just wondering that course is full? And if it is full, is there another BMQ being filled for infantry? And also when selections for NCM Infantry are happening?

Both 6 August and 13 August are basically full.  The next date is 20 August; please note that BMQ's are not filled for specific occupations - whether you're an HRA, FSA, Inf, Art (etc) you can be on the same BMQ - the only division is BMQ for NCM's and BMOQ for Officer's (and English / French).

As to when selections are happening, kratz post just before yours has all the information that I would normally respond with. 

Hi buck,

Do you know how many spots are left for french DEO bmoq of august?

Thanks a lot,

As of today's date there are approx 12 positions remaining on the Franco BMOQ in August.

Hello Folks,

I have a few questions that I hope someone could answer for me:

1. According to the CFLR website (http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/training-establishments/recruit-school.page), the last 12-week-long BMOQ, L-Series, is scheduled to start on September 10, 2018. Do I assume it correctly that based on the 12-week duration, this would be the course for DEO applicants?

2. Do I also assume it correctly that after September, the next DEO intake is not going to happen until 2019?

3. What are the remaining # spots left for DEO Ms Eng and DEO NWO?

Thank you!

1.  Yes the "L-Series" is the BMOQ course done in one shot (i.e. not broke up) so it's for DEO applicants.

2. There is a difference between "intake" and going away on Basic Training.  Intake / Selections will still occur between those months however once the September BMOQ is full anyone selected will be placed on the January BMOQ.

3. As of today's date approx 75% of the DEO MS ENG positions are open and approx 80% of the DEO NWO positions remain open.

Cheers

Hey Buck, to add to this question: are there still spaces in the August/September DEO BMOQ (in particular L0004E,L0006E,L0007E) with a special interest if they are taking any more combat arm applicants (INF, AMR, ARY)? Or do BMOQ's even have spots allotted by trade?

Thanks in advance!

I don't see "L0004E" (or the others) in the system I use; for future please post start/end dates.  However with that said I'm looking at August/September dates and although it looks like a new BMOQ with a start of 10-Sep was added; all other August/September courses are essentially full.

with a special interest if they are taking any more combat arm applicants (INF, AMR, ARY)? Or do BMOQ's even have spots allotted by trade?

I've started a new thread - "Recruiting FAQs" (https://navy.ca/forums/index.php/topic,128223.0.html); please refer to Q1.
