You know that regular military life is not like that outside of initial training right ?

Apparently not.

I've been living it for over 7 months, I get what it's like and I don't want anything to do with it any more.

Anyways, thanks for the above links I'll check them out.

WOW....a whole 7 months or 6 and a half ?

Kid, i've been doing this for 18 years. Its been over a decade and a half since i waxed floors daily and i have not lived in the shacks since 1996. In fact, i dont wax floors at all since my condo has laminate flooring. I do drink at home every now and then........

Good luck, you're not going to like military life anywhere.

CT from Reg to Res on BTL list
« Reply #54 on: January 18, 2011, 11:00:17 »
Hi,
I have an uncommon situation.  I am a 2Lt on the BTL list who failed pilot training and want to join the reserves.  I have a unit that has a NCM position for me.  The release section told me that I can't CT because I am untrained.  Does this make sense?  I can join the Reg force in any open NCM trades but can not join the reserves.  I have four years in (most of it waiting for the phase 1 pilot course), completeing my BOTC, BSERE, sea survival, and AMT courses, 4 OPME's, 3 years at an operational sqn with a lot of admin experience.  I asked the release section for the admin instruction/order for this issue and none was produced.  I have excellent work ethics and believe I can continue to be an effective member in the forces as a reservist. 
Can anyone provide me with assistance?
Thanks

The rule is that you have to be trade qualified to CT from the Regular to Reserve Force. This information comes directly from the release secion and the PSO at CFB Winnipeg. I know it sucks, but the only option seems to be release from the Reg Force and then apply to the Reserves when you get out.

I'm going through the exact same situation, and I was pretty disappointed that I couldn't transfer directly to the reserves.

The issue then becomes one of obligatory service. Did the CF pay for the OP's education ?

  That's fine to say that the info comes from the PSO and the release section but there has to be an admin instruction/order so that there is a guideline/standard to follow.

  And there is no compulsory time that I have to serve.

How did you automatically deduce that OP is Combat Arms?

First you will have to find a reserve unit that will take you.  Then when you do your release from the Reg Force you will tell the release clerk that you want to transfer to the reserves.  You will need to get a position number from the reserve unit and give it to the release clerk.  A fairly straight forward process.

CT ing from Reg to PRes

I was a reservist for 6 plus years, transfered to the regs, and well I would rather have not.  my VIE is not over yet.  is it possible to put in for a CT assuming of course I have a unit willing to take me in the reserve world? what is the process?

I am in the process right now,  so this is what I have done so far.

I was offered my 18 year contract,  I didn't want it so I signed no, etc  That started up some other paperwork and I said I would like to transfer into the P Res after my release.  I selected a Reserve unit I wanted to join,  contacted them and after the RSM says yes I will get a position number which gets me a spot in the unit upon my release.  I am still waiting out for the RSM approval,  so I am not 100% sure on what happens next after getting a position number. 

Since you wish(I assume that is what you want to do?) to VR from the Regular Force and join a Reserve unit it may be a bit different.  My friend who did it wrote up his VR memo and said he would like to join a Reserve unit and at some point in the release process the unit said they would take him. 

Best course of action is to contact the Reserve unit you wish to join and start speaking with them.  They will be able to give you more info,  as well speak with your clerk as they will be able to get more info as to what you need to do now. 

Also,  the BPSO has nothing to do with this... I know because I called their office and the person(wasn't the BPSO,  perhaps it was a clerk?) on the phone pretty much made me feel like an idiot for calling them about this as they do not have any part in the process of going Reg-Reserve(even if you are changing trades)

Unless I'm mistaken, it would not be a release but a component transfer-?  Unless you're actually getting out of the CF altogether and re-enrolling a few days/months later (perhaps not recommended, as a gap in svc can affect various benefits). 

I still sometimes hear people referring to "getting out of the military and joining the reserves", but this is thankfully waning.   :not-again:

Anyway good luck to both of you in the process.

Transfer to reserves after 3 year contract in Regular Force Rank issue ...
« Reply #72 on: December 06, 2012, 17:37:32 »
Hello Everyone,

I have a question to the people who may have better knowledge than me in this... So my question is : I just Transferred to the reserves after my 3 year initial contract in the regular force, and was wondering with all the time i did in reg forces shouldn't i be promoted to coporal ? My new unit recruiter said to me i will have my rank upon completion of my trade Trainning this summer but i tought the rank of coporal was given automatically considering the time i did in reg. force. because Coporal comes automatically after 4 years in reg forces... Does the reserve work differently, and if they're doing it wrong how should i approach them to tell them i need to get my corporals.  because i think the transfer procces was done so quicly that it seems they forgot alot of steps...

So that is my question i hope some may have a good answer, and i apologize my english i am a French so i did my best to make no mistakes.

Thank you,

Pte. Rivet

 I don't get the feeling that approaching your CoC and telling them "you're doing my promotion wrong" is going to get you anywhere positive...

Likely the trade qualification is the issue. Because you transferred to a different trade, they can't promote you until you get the requirements to be a Cpl in that specific trade which you do not have.  TI isn't the issue the qualification is.  If you had transferred in as a Cpl you would be a Cpl in your original trade until you became  a Cpl in your new trade.  In your case you can't become a Cpl in your new trade until you get all the checks in the box, one of which is trade qualification.
