@LightFighter but if you voluntarily drop from training, do you have to go through the recruiting process again? or can you just redo the training in the fall part time?

You are just removing yourself from the course, not the Canadian Forces.  Recruits have requested to Cease Training for various reasons and attended a future BMQ course.  How ever, if you withdrawal yourself from a future course, your time in the CF may come to an end shortly. 


Once you request through your staff that you wish to cease training; you will continue training for another 24 hours, and the staff will confirm this is what you want, than start the process to RTU you.

If you remove yourself from training, your unit may not be too happy it, and will discuss it with you. As well they will want to know your reasons and why it wasn't brought up before you attended the course(unless of course something happened while you were on course without warning).

By removing yourself from a course you basically took the spot of a recruit who could have gone on the course instead of you. This is one less member BMQ qualified.

It also shows a certain level of uncertainty which will impact your CoC's opinion of your dedication to the unit. They'll then have to question if you will do the same thing in the future. If the reason is medical or a personal family issue, they might understand. However, if it is because of preference, they will not be happy.

All members, NCM or Officers, have to do BMQ. BMQ for the reserves is the same for all members. So doing BMQ as an NCM will be the same as for an Officer. BMOQ is a different course done at a different time.

I'll give you the same advice that was given me; get your qualifications done as soon as you can. Also, weekend BMQ is hard than full-time summer BMQ for the simple reason that you have so much time between training weekends that you will have some knowledge loss from weekend to weekend.

Concentrate on the course, complete it, and don't worry about weekends off. If you get weekends off, great; just don't plan on it.

As for going Officer, that is totally up to your unit. Talk to your CoC and see what their process is.

Anyone else going for the Fall 2017 BMQ in the Toronto/GTA area?

I joined up on this website when I initially started my recruitment process at the CF. However, as we know, it is a 'hurry up and wait!' sort of experience for some, and I was one of those lucky few.

I started to update my profile on this site but then gave up after some time. Then one day when I received the good news that everything was in order and I would be getting sworn in! Now that is done, I am looking forward (a little apprehensively) to the Fall 2017 BMQ.  :nod: It still feels so surreal!

Hi,

Does anyone know if weekend BMQ for reserves run through Christmas and the New year? I've been trying to get an answer in order to book plane tickets. Will there be specific dates during the holiday season in which BMQ will be guaranteed NOT to run?
Thanks!

Original Post of this discussion,

Thanks for the quick reply. The reason I asked is because I had my enrollment ceremony today and one of the guys in charge said the weekend is off only if the holiday falls on a weekend, otherwise it's not. This contradicted what I've been reading on the forums so I was wondering if the break varies by location (I'm at 32 CBG) or if there is a "general" break that applies to all BMQs
