Mp3 players arnt allowed? It didnt say anything about them not being allowed and on one of the basic up video's or one of the other videos about basic training it showed a recruit listening to one while cleaning is weapon.

I'm sure they're allowed but I'd still keep it there when not using it.

I wonder how many of the august courses will allow time for soldier qualification(4 weeks) before the Christmas break.  I did a search to figure out and most say it all depends(no way to know for sure till the end of your bmq).  I'm going infantry August-20 to November-23, i hope we'll be starting phase three of our training come January.

I heard that SQ got combined with BIQ, but I'm not sure if that's true or not so don't quote me on. On the other hand, if it didn't get combined to one course then I'm sure they'll run it the same but give you some time off during x-mas as they would normally do.

It was my understanding that the SQ was 60 days. Is this incorrect?

I heard 4 weeks before I heard it was combined. But keep in mind I don't know for sure if that's correct.

Dontgo, a buddy of mine who's going through for infantry right now went straight from BMQ to his combined SQ/BIQ.  He said they just called it advanced BIQ though, because it's about 4 weeks longer than the old BIQ course, but cancels out the need for a separate SQ course.  I don't know if this is the way it will be for all new recruits, but to the best of my knowledge you heard correctly.  I'm leaving on the 12th for St. Jean, and I'm just going to try to take everything as it comes, and not try to plan too far ahead.  I don't want to start counting on anything, because my friend started his advanced BIQ in May in Shilo and was told he would be 2PPCLI.  This was good, because Shilo is only 40 minutes from his home.  All his family, and friends live nearby, and were excited he would be staying home.  He just found out last week though, that they are all going to Edmonton now.  He is fine with it, because he just wants to go wherever his guys are going, but, needless to say, his family is disappointed.  I guess its all just part of the lifestyle.  Goodluck on your course to everybody who's going.
We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

hey whats this about a train? do they send you up on a nice scenic cn train ride? oh I asked about christmas and bases are sort of closed, the instructors get 2 weeks off and so do we.  And yes you need to pay your own way home.  I was told they would pay but, this has just changed.
