Hoping to touch base with an MSE Op to ask a few questions in PMs. If you're feeling generous and want to help me out let me know in PM's or post here and I'll PM you.

Cheers.  :salute:

Haven’t heard of it.  But you’d probably need more than a driver wheel course to be PLAR’d, would most likely need civilian experience/quals to help support a PLAR.  If a PLAR was granted, you may still be required to do portions of the QL3.

Haven’t heard of it, I’m not sure whatever driver wheel course you did while on PAT Pl will write off QL3 MSE Op.

What about a 6 month driving program that I did that covered heavy equipment, transport trucks, coach buses and school buses civvie side that gave me certificates and a full license for everything on the road? No need to be so passive aggressive, jesus.

No idea, like NFLD Sapper said, try for it and see what happens.

That was not intended to come off as passive aggressive.  No information was given with regarding what you have to support a PLAR, so I assumed you wanted a driver wheel course to support a PLAR on its own.  Original reply has been edited to properly convey what I intended.

I have seen one case where, due to previous military experience and civilian quals, a member who OT'd was granted his QL3. On the equipment itself, you'll still need to prove to a Driver Examiner you are proficient and pass the written/practical tests to be granted the qual on your 404s. If you have a log book, documenting all your hours etc., this will go a long way.

Hey guys.
My OT/ct has finally gone through for MSE Op. I start 29 mar but i was told I have missed the next course. Can anyone tell me the next running courses that are open? My broker told me he will try and get me on OJT at my unit until course, since i have a wife and kids.

Thanks for the response! Unfortunately most of my driving experience was under eLogs so I have no physical copies which sucks. I'm not too chuffed about not getting credit..having a leg up on double clutching and that stuff is enough on it's own I suppose.

Hi everyone, I am trying to get a hold of the MSE Op Flag file. The one with the horse and tractor on it. I would like to get the original vector file, if not a high-quality raster image that I could convert to a vector would also work.

Hey everyone, hope you are having a good day.



This past week I received a job offer for a mobile support equipment operator, ,after a rather swift recruiting process.



As of currently I am pretty torn on if I should take or not as in January I enrolled in a college program that I think would lead to a good enjoyable career, but potentially with less possibility of getting job upon graduation.



Now with the MSE Op, what attracted me to it was the wide array of certifications and experience you would get that would be translatable to the civilian market, as well as for lack of a better word, looking like a really cool & interesting job itself.



So I am looking to hear personal experiences form MSE Op's, what is your life like, how much do you travel, what equipment have you driven, there is not a lot of information on people who have gone through the trade, and I am looking to get some information that could maybe help me make a decision

I was an MSE Op in the PRes. Loved the trade. Loved the RCASC. Later, the Logistics Branch.

Most of my time was on the M135. ( Retired ).

The training and experience was relevant to my full-time career.

DND 404 is your military driver's licence.  It allows you to drive vehicles you are qualified on.  As there are multiple classes of vehicles in the CAF, there really is no civilian equivalent.

With the change to the current DND 404, some provinces will now recognise civilian equivalencies.
On the back of your 404s, if you have, for example: Truck, trailer, and boat = class 5. If you have some heavy equipment endorsements, those will be transferred, in some provinces.

I know Ontario and Alberta DMV have systems in place to recognise 404 quals.
