NJL, congrats man.  We'll have to try to introduce our selves at the ceremony. I imagine we'll be flying out together as well at "oh dark stupid" as the Cpl told me.

We probably won't be getting too much sleep if we're going to be landing in Montreal at 7am.  Could make for an interesting first day :p

You guys get to fly in? I'm taking the 40 window limo. Apparently there is going to be a strike by Ontario Northland coach drivers, so I think I'm going to head to Ottawa around the 26th, then to Saint Jean on the 29th. There is no way I'm going to let a labour disruption get between me and BMQ. After talking with Vern, and the very awesome Sup Tech here at CFB North Bay, I'm confident I made the right choice on trade. Again, I look forward to working with those on the 1 Oct session. See you at the Mega.

Time flies, I can't believe this was 2.5 years ago. Anyways I actually failed the fitness test, which kinda put the brakes on the whole process. I then had a rough semester and ended almost not going back to university, so this process was put on the back burner, but not out of my mind. It took me this long to finally get things back into order so that I would be ready for a serious commitment.

Yesterday I went to the recruiting centre to restart the process. I picked up a new application form. The funny thing was that it was all the same people from before and they recognized me from over 2 years ago. This time I have been seriously considering joining as an officer but I will have to see.



Went down Friday afternoon to hand things in....... and the RC was closed for training in the afternoon, Meh it could have been worse.
Went in today and things have changed, so the SGT is reviewing my file to see what happens next. CFAT is still good, so I'm only going to need to do my FT, interview, and med.

Revised:

Recruiting Centre: North Bay
Reg/Res: Res
Officer/NCM: Officer
Trade Choice 1: Infantry
Trade Choice 2: Logistics
Trade Choice 3: None
Application Date: Sept 18, 2007
CFAT: Don't have to do again, qualified for all trade choices.
Medical: ?
Interview: ?
PT Test: Hopefully not until at least the end of Oct, still finishing up
Merit Listed: N/A
Offer: N/A
BMQ: N/A

To give you an update about the fitness test: the fitness test (CF Express Test) is administered when you attend BMQ. If you fail it at BMQ then they place you in a new PT course where all you do is work on your fitness. You would get a set amount of time (a few weeks anyway) to get yourself to the level to pass the test, and when you do then they send you to BMQ. Hope that helps you. Oh, and the Sgt is awesome, isn't he? When I did my medical he asked if I studied, so I did a mock turn and cough, then told him I practiced all week for it. He got a good chuckle.

I heard the opposite on these forums. That it was recently brought back, and any new applicants would have to pass the fitness exam. Rumor probably, but I just thought I'd throw it out there.

Only posted in case vG wasn't aware, that sometimes happens as not every one is fully up to date on everything. I thought that judging by the order that things were listed that that may have been the case here. You never know who knows what.

Edit to respond to post by Snaketnk:

I am not aware of being made to to the Express Test prior to leaving for BMQ. If this is the case then no one has told me as I'm leaving next week. Last I heard was that it was administered at the beginning of BMQ.

I took my papers in 2 weeks ago, did my CFAT today, and my medical/Interview will be done on the 25th. If iam lucky I could get in by the end of the month. I think its because iam in ottawa thats its going faster, maybe? Iam joining a Combat Ebgineer reserve unit in ottawa.

I completed my medical today, passed everything great and the medical examiner said he was going to be sending my papers off to Ottawa and it would be about 3 weeks to be confirmed on their end. Now I just have to give a call in to London tomorrow and book my interview. I'm surprised this has gone so fast thus far. I have been coming to these forums for quite some time now and was kind of worried about the application time, but so far I have gotten everything completed that I need to do except for the interview in under one month. Hopefully there wont be too much waiting, but it will be worth the wait.  ;)
