Congrats! Gives you time to work on your fitness. Any idea why you have to wait so long for BMOQ? Are all the previous courses full?

Well apparently Steward is closed, and they have no idea when it will be open again. I have myself registered in a math program, so once I complete it I will be adding Cook.

Maybe you've picked high demand trades? I don't know why it's so quick, but be very thankful and prepare for all those upcoming things! I'm pretty sure this is the fastest turnaround I've ever seen!

Thanks! All the positions i applied for are currently "In Demand" on the forces website and i'm hoping i can be taken into training at the beginning of September. The only thing i'm currently struggling with is finding 4 references who have known me for five years

It might be a combination of things like, an in demand position, the availability of your recruiter's or how you are driving the process. Ultimately you are the one that drives the process forward and the recruiter is there to assist you.

"In demand" jobs on forces.ca are not necessarily accurate, your recruiter will have better information on that. I think September is probably pushing it for BMQ as you still need to have reference check done and then you need to receive an actual offer, which probably won't happen right away. Don't worry about Sept BMQ right now but rather focus on kicking *** in CFAT and interview. Prepare well for both and just take things one at a time.

I got an offer a few weeks ago for my first choice which was in demand when I applied last year... July 2013... everything went through nice and smooth, they started waiting on my background check in April. Just got my July 21st. Exactly one year after I applied.. and am starting BMQ Sept. 1..  So, once you get the ball rolling a bit more, I suggest focusing on your fitness, and be very patient when you are waiting for your offer. you may still have a while to wait..

in the beginning, I felt things were moving really fast... application in, email response, bunch of paper work, month later called for cfat, then called back another month later for med and interview.. but then a few months later for another interview (changed some of my trade choices), then another 4 months till the offer.. felt like it was taking forever... then of course, after I get my offer, I started getting job offers from some other places I was looking for work lol

It looks like all 3 of your job choices are in demand right now. They may be trying to fill slots. But only the CFRC would be able to tell you for sure.
I also applied for the  ACISS job. I'm hoping to hear something soon.
I was told that my background check will take a little longer than normal due the fact iq married an American citizen. Aside from her giving me a hard time getting a divorce I knew it would somehow bite me in the ***.

Congrats to those that have already been selected and good luck to those like myself are still waiting
