Clearance times vary from person to person, so it is difficult to determine how long it will take.  I have seen it take up to a year after enrollment.

Hi, mates!
I'm new on the forum, and new with all the terminologies, the procedures, etc.
From the words above, It seems to me that one candidate can start, do it, and even complete, the 12 weeks of the Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) before his clearance check is concluded.
May I ask if it is right?
Cause I was thinking that we only get enroled to the 12 weeks BMOQ, after the clearance check for our trade is concluded.

Hi, Mates!
May I ask about the Army Communication and Information Systems Specialists trade ( https://forces.ca/en/career/army-communication-and-information-systems-specialist/ ), if someone would know in which rank the candidate will be on its BOQT?
I've read somewhere that for some specialized jobs, the candidate is ranked as soldier only in the BMQ.
I would like to confirm it with some veteran, if possible.

I am confused on your wording, but I think I know what you are getting at.

ACISS is an NCM trade so you will do BMQ, as such you will be enrolled as a Private.  Some trades (ACISS is not one of them), after BMQ you are promoted to a higher rank.  These trades are very few and far between (I can only think of one).

So, if I understand you question, as ACISS you will be enrolled as a Private and go to BMQ.  Upon completion of BMQ you will go to CFSCE (Sigs school in Kingston) and complete your trade training, still as a Private.  Four years after enrollment you will be promoted to Corporal.

I beg your pardon for that.  :whistle:

Thanks a lot for your answer, buddy!
That is exactly what I wanted to confirm.  :D
