Navy Tactical Operations Group (NTOG)
« on: October 03, 2014, 22:03:31 »
Sorry for derailing a bit, but I have a quick question.

I'm applying for bosun, and am extremely interested in this new ANBP. It's a definite goal of mine to be selected and try and make it on. Based on what I've been told, I'm expecting (hoping?) to start BMQ by January, or April at the latest. Does anyone have any idea how the timeline would go as far as going from BMQ to having a realistic chance of being selected for the Advanced Naval Boarding Party, or might it still be too early to tell? Would I have to have completed my NETP and BOQT to even have a chance of being eligible/noticed?

Thanks in advance.

At least ql5 qualified before you can do this would be my best guesd. So expect 2 years after you get to the fleet. Probably 4 years all told depending on coursing.

I would check with your BPSO for info regarding ANBP recruiting. There was a solicitation message for the East Coast sent out not too long ago.

Apply!  Now!

I just received an email this morning that the East Coast cannot meet our requirements.  It was a hastener to re-canvass any interested people.

The email specifically said:

RegF: Sea Element/Navy MOS
ResF:  All NAV RES occupations

NCMs:  LS to MS
NCOs: PO2 – PO1

Officers: Lt(N) ATR

So put in your application.

Interesting.  I am posted back to Halifax this summer.  Is there a "detachment" in Halifax or will they all be out of Esquimalt ?

JJT,

The next Asessment Centre is from 8-15 Jun 15.  Files are "due" to PCC(A) 1 April, so next Wednesday.  That being said, we haven't reached the minimum 30 files MARLANT is looking for to select the 16 candidates to tryout for the 11 spots, so maybe there will be some extensions for a short period.

They need folks to deploy with the next FFH end-Nov 15

Gimme a couple of hours and I will post the message here, but if you have DIN access, you are looking for: COMCANFLTPAC 122323Z Feb 15 (RCN Enhanced Naval Boarding Party Team 2 Solicitation)

Cheers,

I attended the brief in Jan, and took a few notes.

If people are interested, shoot me an e-mail on the DWAN on Monday and I can forward details that I passed to my department (unclas)

Happy to share the info.

A quick question from the civvi side;
Do you have to be a bos'n to apply for ANBP? After I wrap up grade 12 I was thinking of going to the combat engineers (having troubles deciding between NCM or officer, the latter being what ma and pa want -_-) but the prospect of ANBP has really sparked my interest.

All the interest here and around the Fleet but a bit of a downer regarding applicants. That said, for some reason, the process is a tad cumbersome with one electronic file to be submitted to one place and a hard copy to another. I am trying to 'hand' push a last minute applicant through right now and it is like herding (stuffed) cats!

The process for applying to any type of special employment (CANSOF, HUMINT, CP etc) always seems to be cumbersome, sadly.

I would love to try the ANBP, but despite the fact that I can be deployed on ship, I am not navy.

So will the regular Naval Boarding Party still exist or just the Advanced Naval Boarding Party?

There will be no change to the Naval Boarding Party on ships, they will continue to exsist as they do now. ENBP(Enhanced Naval Boarding Party) will be eventually tasked out onboard certain ships on certain deployments. Once the other ENBP team is trained, it will be posted to Halifax, one per coast.

Belatedly spotted this:
Quote
In recent years, the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) has been a little behind the times, but lately they have really been pushing to up their game. Since their recent discipline issues and ships malfunctioning at sea, the RCN has buckled down and begun upgrading their capabilities. Recent press releases have officially announced the awarding of contracts for upgrading the current RCN fleet, replacing the Sea King helicopters, acquiring amphibious assault vessels, and building the new joint-support ship. The RCN also announced in early 2014 the creation of the Maritime Tactical Operations Group (MTOG), which could bring about a huge increase in their boarding parties’ tactical capabilities.

The Canadian Navy’s standard boarding parties have proven their worth in the past. Of note, the HMCS Toronto made a record drug bust of 280 kg of heroin during interdiction operations in the Indian Ocean in January of 2014. During the operation, the HMCS Toronto was part of an international task force that recovered a total of 538 kg of heroin. The Navy boarding parties were effective at conducting searches and detaining prisoners. The new MTOG boarding parties are trained to maintain those skills while expanding their abilities to react to threats. The purpose of the MTOG position is to “increase agility, flexibility, and tactical expertise to confront and deter a variety of threats in high-risk operational environments.”[1] This training includes increased weapons and CQB training, and advanced IED/EOD training.

The MTOG is designed to increase the capabilities of RCN boarding parties and “to fill the gap between what our special forces can do and what we need to do on our own as a navy.”[2] The MTOG selection phase is a grueling five days during which candidates are “put through a rigorous physical and mental selection process.”[3] If a candidate is successful during MTOG selection, they will then be invited to attempt the Maritime Tactical Operators Course (MTOC). The MTOG’s first operator selection phase occurred in early 2014, followed by MTOC. The first MTOC class graduated in March of 2015 and resulted in 13 operators being qualified and forming the Enhanced Naval Boarding Party (ENBP) Team 1 ....

I chuckled a little bit that they have MAKO patches, being an expeditionary security detachment of a ship...like the Enterprise.

The latest from the RCN Info-machine:
Quote
Sailors in the new Enhanced Naval Boarding Party (ENBP) program had one final test to complete before graduating October 29, 2015. In order to receive their Maritime Technical Operator Course certificate, each of the eight graduates was required to secure Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt, B.C., Dockyard’s Alpha Jetty. After arriving from their Albert Head training facility aboard rigid-hulled inflatable boats, the team, dressed in full fighting order, scaled the side of the dock, fanned out, did a comprehensive sweep, and then gave the all clear sign.

Afterwards was the graduation ceremony. “You are the sharp end of the spear as it pertains to boarding capabilities,” said Captain (Navy) David Mazur of Maritime Forces Pacific Headquarters. “The momentum surrounding the program is going to build in the next few years, and you are all in on the ground floor of this new program.”

The first class of 13 ENBP recruits graduated in April 2015. The graduation of this second group further advances the first phase of the Future Naval Boarding Party Capability Development outlined in the Royal Canadian Navy’s executive plan. The plan is to produce a pool of 70 to 100 ENBP graduates over the next few years.

“They are specialists, not generalists, and require an increasingly complex and high level of training to be qualified to do this job. They are better trained to deal with uncertain or chaotic situations that they may deal with in their deployments,” said Lieutenant-Commander Wilfred Lund, Officer Commanding the Maritime Tactical Operations Group (MTOG).

Graduates underwent advanced tactical training over 14 weeks that included hand-to-hand combat, improvised explosive device identification, close quarters battle, tactical shooting and advanced medical training ....

With the whole OPSEC thing about not naming folks being/going to be deployed, why would the Info-Machine put the full names of the interviewed graduates?

Naval Boarding Party/Enhanced Naval Boarding Party is not a trade, nor is it part of the Combat Arms(Combat Specialists). Members who are selected for that training/employment still remain whatever trade they are, whether it be Bosn or something else.

I don't know if NBP/ENBP employment has its own medical standard or not.


Some specialty courses do have higher medical standards than some of the trades eligible to attend the training.

Is Maritime Tactical Operations Group the same as Enhanced Naval Boarding Party?  If not, what are the differences? :-\
