Hi, I got my offer to attend RMC this coming school year.

Unfortunately I have not been in school for awhile and have definitely forgot the basic math / science / French / etc.

I was wonder what sort of classes/courses 1st year ARTs students would have to take.
i.e. What type of math? Algebra, calculus?, etc.
What type of science? Chemistry, bio, physics?
ETC.

I want to start going over stuff myself so that I am not completely lost when I start in the fall.

Thank you!

You didn’t mention which arts degree you’re taking, it will likely depend on the program.

https://www.rmc-cmr.ca/en/faculty-social-sciences-humanities

If you click on your program, then scroll to the bottom, you’ll see the course of study for each degree. 

Looks like precalculus is required, some programs have some computer classes.

My son is just finishing first year engineering and he’s mentioned that all the arts students have a math class (the engineering students have some English, psych and history). I assume that he’s talking about the precalculus class.

Edit to add:

French, you’ll do a placement test and get put in a class based on where you are. 

And here are the core courses for all arts programs:

Hi,

When did you have your interview? I had mine on April 8 and I didn't receive anything.

Hi,

I had mine mid February. The selection was April 9 so an interview on the 8th probably hurt your chances of making it this month. They still do selections in May and the summer!

Hi,

When did you have your interview? I had mine on April 8 and I didn't receive anything.

Assuming you only did the interview, you would still have to do the medical, pass any background checks, and any other additional testing other testing such as ACS, MOST, MPOAC  (for Pilot, NWO, MPO, Etc). Assuming you pass all of those, you will be competition listed. If you haven't done any of that I doubt you will be considered this year.

Sadly I wasn't selected in April. I hope they consider me in the May selections board. Apparently 80% out of 400 offers have been made to date (80 left + any offers that applicants may reject). As for the trades I applied for apparently there are 0 spots open for ENGR-O, and 1 spot for EME-O.  :/  I have contacted my recruiter and hopefully they can provide some insight or any other options.
Anyways, congrats to those that have been accepted!

Hi everyone, I am new here. I started my application to ROTP almost 3 years ago. My background is from south America so i knew that it was gonna take time until my reliability status were accepted. To make story short, I got my interview and medical appointments on April 18. ( my reliability status came all good). Since that i went to my CFRC almost every week to check my status. I was told that a decision was gonna be made on May 6/7. I don't have any answer, and I heard that if i didn't receive an answer by now, it means i was not accepted. I've been in this process for 3 years almost and I don't know if I wait, I'd get in. Should I wait for next year? Or does anyone know where is the last date for enrollment

Hi everyone,

I also have a question about a selection date. Last week, I have called my recruiting center and I knew that I was on the competition list for Int OP since June 20th but currently that there was no selection date entered at the system. It looks like the last one happened on June 5th. After research on the forum, I understood that selections happen twice a month minimum for each trade. Is there an exception for Int OP?

Thank you.

Jaay, in general, selections happen every other week. However, not every trade is selected for each time selections are held. In fact, many smaller trades are only selected for once or twice a year.

As for Int Op, there is currently 18 RegF positions remaining for this Fiscal Year, to be selected sometime before the end of April 2020. That probably doesn't help much, just trying to temper your expectations WRT timelines.

Hello Handouts!

I was going through the threads and I saw your post. It is from few months ago so I am not sure if my response is going to make it to you. I can sympathize with your situation because I was in the same boat as you a few years ago. I had applied to join the Forces in 2016, however, it was not until 2018 that I heard back from them about my application. I have not lived in Canada for the past ten years and my back ground is Pakistani. So I knew that security clearance would take a while before I hear anything back from them. So I went about my life and just waited which is what the military recommends. The reason for this is that you are never guaranteed a position in the Forces. I graduated university and got a job and lived my life. When the military called me with a job offer I decided to join, I could have very well said no thank you but that is the decision you make once you have an offer. I would never recommend anyone wait. Go do your thing live your life and when you have an offer decide what you want to do.

Now one of the things you have mentioned about your reliability status. I would like to bring to your attention that reliability status is the first step towards getting your security clearance. Call it unfair if you would like to but the rules are that if you have not lived in Canada for the past 10 years or if you have links to a non-NATO country you would have to get security clearance before you can join. That is what happened to me. I had to wait until I got my security clearance before I could join. For many other people security clearance is applied for during their BMQ or BMOQ. So you need to find out if that is the step where your file is stuck.

I would recommend that you go about living your life and wait until the military comes to you with an offer. Also keep checking with your recruiting office about the status of your application.

Hope it helps my friend!

Upcoming ROTP question
« Reply #42 on: September 08, 2019, 16:07:26 »
Good day everyone,

I’ll try and keep this short and simple. I’m just wondering if anyone applying for ROTP 20-21 has received their ROTP paper work. I was told Sept. 1 was when they’d release the documents and begin processing applicants. I haven’t received any news yet other than “Capt so and so will get back to you ASAP” when i sent them a follow up email. This was 5 days ago, roughly.
Man, if you knew how short life was and how fast it can be snatched away from you, you wouldn’t waste one second doing anything that didn’t bring you absolute enjoyment. Period!

High school student applying to RMC
« Reply #43 on: September 27, 2019, 15:56:27 »
Hello there,
I am a high school student attending at a HS in Ontario, and am applying to the RMC. Let me tell you what I have done so far.
1. Completed my profile and "validation" online.
2. Booked my initial appointment.(Which they say will just be an aptitude test)
My questions:
1.What should I have prepared for my initial appointment? I have done some research into the possible jobs in the CAF but I am trying to go into RMC and after that I'll serve right??
2. If I need/should research jobs and the training path to them, where do I find this information?
3. Dress code for the aptitude test?
4. They give you the practice aptitude test, but say that the real one is much harder. How much harder? And is there a realistic practice test or an old one I can use to prepare?
5. On a side note, how important are marks? They say at least a 70 average but that seems too low for how competitive I have heard it is.

I appreciate and answers/feedback!

slowe,

To answer your questions:

1. Bring your photo ID, birth certificate, and current transcripts. Just FYI, attending RMC is a part of your military service, after graduating you would be commissioned and start being gainfully employed though.

2. Look around on the Forces.ca and RMC websites. The link below will inform you which degrees are acceptable for each officer occupation.

https://www.rmc-cmr.ca/en/Registrars-office/academic-programmes-and-occupation-compatibility

3. Wear something clean that you will be comfortable writing your aptitude test in.

4. The new (this year) practice test found on the Forces.ca website is about as good as you'll find. To find it on the website, go to the section labelled "How to join", and follow the links for the CFAT. Focus your studying on the math skills required to complete the problem solving question. Take note of the time limits. You want to score as high as you can, it will have weight toward selection.

5. Marks are very important. Your transcript will be reviewed by the RMC admissions department to determine if you meet minimum admission requirements as well as given weight towards selections. Don't confuse the minimum requirements for admission with what is considered competitive for selection.

Good luck.

luttrellfan,

I'm not sure what paperwork you are referring to. Your application to RMC/ROTP is essentially the same as applying to any other entry plan in the CAF with the exception that you will be provided a link to the "RMC portal", this will require you to upload your transcripts and answer a few questions. This information is sent directly to RMC to determine if you meet admission requirements. If you have not already done so go to the Forces.ca website and click on "Apply now" and fill out your online application. Also, order some current, official transcripts.

In 2013 I applied for ROTP and when I did I received paperwork that asked me a few questions about hobbies and such along with post secondary info. Basically, it was a sell yourself to RMC type of paperwork. I was unsuccessful and am now in the reserves. I’ve recently put in for a CT and one of my trades is Officer related. I’ve been informed by the CT people that I’ll be under the ROTP group, but I haven’t received any news when I should have. I’ve checked “My Portal” (because I’m already a student there) but there is no mention of ROTP. I was supposed to here news from them and still nothing.
