Hey guys

I've accepted my offer but don't enroll until Aug 2nd. Is there anything at this point that can change? I'm nervous about putting my notice in at work if there's still a chance things can change?

Thanks

If the CFRC has already booked your medical, I suspect you probably won't need presec. Either that, or they have not realized yet that you will need presec for some reason.

Here's how my process went at the same CFRC. I lived in a different country for one year, less than 5 years ago (for future reference that country was France).

Does any one know how you are contacted when waiting for a job offer ?

I called last week and they said everything's a green light just waiting on an offer .. but then just got a call now saying that they're waiting on my reliability .. what would cause this ?

The shortened duration isn't necessarily about what's been removed. The course has been condensed. While looking at the new training plans and comparing, for the most part it's simply a lot of down-time that's been cut and/or filled up. (There's still some, of course, but not as many admin periods and such as there used to be.) There have been a few component alterations (such as the 13km ruck), field time has been broken down differently and some locations have changed for certain aspects of the course. However, I wouldn't be concerned about anything other than getting through those 10 weeks.
