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

From what the CFRC Detachment Commander told me was that in order to be even considered for CF firefighter you must have previous firefighting experience and training approved by the NFPA and IFSAC. Both of which I have, however my experience and training is over five years old. So unfortunately I am not competitive enough.

CF Firefighter is also a nationally competitive trade. Only two slots are open this year nation wide.

does it mean except trade such as combat unit, you should have experience in the position you want to apply?

I am not qualified to answer that question. Your best bet is to phone your local recruiting detachment to find out.

Not necessarily but it does mean that for highly competitive occupations you should bring something to the table besides a Grade 10 education and no work experience it you want a chance to compete for them.

Application Date: September, 2006
First Contact: September, 2006 (exact dates have escaped me but I made first contact anyway)
Medical: Completed - October 23, 2006
Aptitude: Completed
Interview: Completed - October 23, 2006

Although I've completed the process, there was some discrepency with my vision so I was given a letter and told to see an Optomitrist. I booked my appointment for today and have completed the assessment as well as had the letter filled out. It turns out my right eye is weaker than my left but other than that my eyes are in good shape. I am sending it tomorrow and then all I have to wait for is a job offer which the interviewer said will not be long because I had applied for a trade in the Combat Arms. He also said he was very impressed at the knowledge I had of Artillery and that I "would do well in the army" - that was very inspiring. All in all, my experience has been great and I have nothing but gratitude for the staff at the Barrie CFRC. Now I wait.  ;D

Great Interview, aced the CFAT. (Don't want to get a big head, but I was told it was the 2nd highest score my councillor had ever seen  ::))
Told I am both qualified and competitive for all my choices, and there are a number of available positions for my number one choice.

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.
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 got the word from CFRC Moncton that my ERC and Med have come back and so I've been merit listed.  The MCC confirmed again that the next DEO selection board will be 14 Nov 2006.

Finished my aptitude and had my interview and medical scheduled for the 30th. Apparently they don't do PT Tests any more until after everything has finished and you start BMQ...it was quite a surprise to find this out.

I'm still plugging away through the recruitment process. I had my CFAT today and I didn't qualify for RMS Clerk, but I did for a lot of other trades that interested me. I'm now leaning towards being a Medic and have contacted the Medical Company here in Vancouver.
