In the Navy, most of the senior officers you work for are MARS oficers.  In the Army, most of the senior officers you work for are Infantry officers.

...ok, that one's a wash...

Cook for the Canadian forces
« Reply #178 on: January 27, 2016, 16:25:05 »
They are hiring. But it says they want a high school diploma ( http://www.forces.ca/en/job/cook-80 ). Which is odd because they are far more responsible jobs that only require grade 10. I am currently a cook at 2 places in Vancouver, I am dedicated, hard working and my motivation has led me to go higher up into the company. My employers can advocate on my behalf. Is there any way I can still join with a grade 10? note I do have grade 11 and 12 credits.

Hello I am currently a cook at 2 restaurants in Vancouver BC. So I have experience, dedication and motivation to succeed in this industry. http://www.forces.ca/en/job/cook-80 it says I need a high school diploma. Some colleges in Canada only require grade 10 for the culinary course. Why is it that I need a diploma to get in as a cook? I can handle bombs and weapons and deal with radar and engineering with only grade 10. Doesn't make much sense, anyway around this?

No, get your GED or pick another trade. Also, in this competitive market, you'll likely be at the bottom of a merit list with only Grade 10. You're also wanted in a US state and banned from traveling there. Sort that out before you apply.

Forget about the CAF then. Maybe you can keep being a fry cook with grade 10 as a career.

Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that you would never have to travel to the US as a CAF member.  We work a lot with the US Armed Forces and travelling there is almost inevitable.  Being a CAF member won't give you immunity if you're stopped at the border and your name shows up on the computer.

CAF members are not diplomats and we do not automatically receive diplomatic immunity in foreign countries.

Waiting for a COOK QL3 course
« Reply #184 on: November 24, 2016, 19:45:39 »
I am a Naval Reservist I have an up to date AVREP, I have BMQ under my belt, 2 Modules of NETP under my belt, and have been parading as a OS BASIC since September. I know that most Boatswains that have open availability have been loaded onto their QL3 courses already, and I am very anxious to start mine, or to even get loaded onto mine.

Does ANYONE know when the next QL3 courses for Cook start (I know likely won't be until the New Year), but I am going absolutely INSANE practically doing nothing at my unit.

Man, that 2 month wait for your trade course must have been brutal.

When I was in the 'Mo, career course dates typically weren't known until after Christmas as the calendars for the next fiscal year weren't completed until late November, and loaded sometime in early February.

It's brutal when I want to make a career out of the FORCES, but I totally get what you're saying. Just being a bit impatient, I will keep waiting out.

Also good to know about when the lists are usually available.

Thanks.

There is only two serials (French & English split) left in this FY. Both are Reg F. There is nothing on the schedule for next FY yet.

Cook Reg F 11/Jan/17 25 May/17 Scheduled

For a Cook Trade, when do you get your aviator rank?
Is there a DOAD or QR&O to refer at?

If you completed QL3 Cook in Borden, are you entitled to get Pte/aviator rank?
