Recruiting Center: Moncton
Regular/Reserve: Reg F
Officer/NCM: Officer (DEO re-enrollment)
Trade Choice 1: INT
Trade Choice 2: SIGS
Trade Choice 3: NONE
Application Date: 21 Jun 2006

Contacts:
- 30 Jun 2006, CFRC/D received my pers file.
- 3 Jul 2006, CFRC/D needed add'l info to request my med docs.  I provided it immediately. 
- 14 Jul 2006, Advised by CFRC/D that in order to be selected for INT I'd need to provide add'l information/certification, etc.  I provided it to them the next day.
- 7 Sep 2006, Called by CFRC/D.  My OMDs have arrived.  Huzzah!  Med and Interview scheduled.

Aptitude completed:
- Waived, in theory, but I've been advised I may be requested to write it again.
- 27 Sep 2006.  CFAT is now officially waived.  My prior scores qualified me for both INT and SIGS and the CFAT is good for 5 years.

Med completed:
- 27 Sep 2006.  Complete.  No issues at all, no doctor's notes required.

Interview completed:
- 27 Sep 2006.  Complete.  A "grueling" one and a half hour interview. :) It went extremely well.  I will be listed for both INT and SIGS although I've been advised that my odds for INT are slim.  As it was put to me, the door is almost closed but it isn't quite locked.  One issue, beyond not being very competitive for a very demanding board, is that the INT board sits after the DEO board so it seems probable that I'll get an offer for SIGS before the INT board even sits so I'd be taking a heck of a risk in turning down SIGS to wait it out for INT.

PT Test completed:
- 27 Sep 2006. Waived since the new directive 1 Oct 2006 makes it no longer necessary.  Advised to continue training as CF Express will be done early in BOTC and failure will result in placement on a Warrior Platoon.  I'm not at all worried about passing the test in Basic.

Position Offered: -
Enrollment Date: -
Basic Training: -

Current Status: I was hoping that some of my "soft" qualifications would count for more towards INT, so I'm a little disappointed that my odds are so slim since I have a great passion to be an INT O.  However, adapt and overcome.  I have no doubt that SIGS will be a very interesting career and assuming that in three years I still want to do INT I can always OT.  The MCC confirmed that as of current policy, it is acceptable to OT from SIGS to INT.  Now playing the waiting game for news about selection and/or an actual offer.

Was it the CFRC who told you the test is good for 5 years?  I was told the score is good for life.

I think someone misled you or you misinterpreted what was said.  If you OT or CT into another Trade, you will have to do a CFAT, even if you have done one before.

I did an OT (Res) after 3 years into a trade that required a higher CFAT than my first trade and at the time I was told my initial score was good enough. Now I am CTing into Reg Force and once again my new occupation requires a higher CFAT than my current occupation but I was still informed that my initial CFAT is still good enough.

My initial test was done more than 5 years ago. That is why I want to make sure what are his sources as my CFRC informed me the score is good for life...unless I am applying for a trade which requires a higher score than what I have achieved in which case I may be given another shot at the test.

You don't rewrite the CFAT unless your previous score doesn't meet the cutoff for your new occupation.  The CFAT result is good for the length of the CFAT protocol which has been in place since 1997.

I appear to have unintentionally posted something which is factually wrong, so I apologize for that.  I don't recall the specifics of the conversation, all I remember was talking about the CFAT while sitting around waiting for my interview, whether I would redo it, and the phrase "5 years" being used.  I probably misunderstood what I was told.

Thank you Kincanucks for setting this right.

My process has taken a little longer than the "average" as they had to retrieve my dead file and put it together with my new file. All in all, been a great experience so far and can't wait to get into BMQ. Good luck all.

What exactly makes one competitive for fire fighter, besides previous experience?  ???

Anyways, sorry to hear about your luck. Armoured is still amazing though, at least in my eyes.
