They'd probably like to, though.   ;)

There is rumour around here that the NCM training is now 10 weeks and Officer is 11 weeks that means no more field training. This starts in April not sure if this is rumour but there is a thick talk around this. Will find out pretty soon. Got to go to Farnham tomorrow for couple days then we start drill test and Major's inspection and CF Express. Please traini and train hard so that you dont injured. I am sure you will not enjoy the trailer stay at CFLRS if you are injured.

At the moment I have been scheduled for a 15 week BMOQ starting in May. So for now 11 weeks is but a rumor. Maybe something will change at the last minute.

The schedule we have posted on the wall (the internal schedule which is constantly changing) still shows a 15 week BMOQ.  Don't get your hopes up for a shorter course just yet!

I am very happy to be almost done. It has been a great experience overall. It was obviously hard, but if you put the effort and drive into it, there is no reason for anybody to not make it through the course.

Pre-VIMY and VIMY were definitely the hardest part of the course, but staying focused and not giving up will make you go through it.

I'll be going to Halifax next, but I will never forget the time at St-Jean.

See you in Halifax alejo, I take it you'll be grouping up with the boys rolling out for CAP?
Also, regarding instructors wanting to kill "young little cute Officer Cadets", could not be more true  ;D. I remember one specific Warrant tearing me a new one every time she spotted me. In the words of a great anonymous MWO at CFLRS

Hello back after a long time on this forum.

Guess what I successfully finished BMOQ and will be graduating on Apr 28th 2011. Indeed a great moment for me since I had decided to release myself in week 2.

Few tips that might help others:

1. There is no confirmation about courses been short. SO BMOQ is still 15 weeks
2. The best way to stay through the BMOQ is to be focussed. Dont loose the sight that 15 weeks is a long period but also will never come back in your life.
3. Train and train really hard. Its not worth been injured on CFLRS course and then get frustrated.
4. Put a lot of effort on 3 things pushups, situps and squats. You will see them over and again.
5. The staff are really good but they yell and shout all the time especially during field training. They do not give that personally. They want you to correct your mistakes and move on.
6. If the answer can be a yes or no dont say a single more word. The staff does not like explanation.
7. Any staff can jack you up so move on with that.
8. Try sleep deprevation once in a while before coming here, will really help
9. DETAILS DETAIKLS DETAILS. listen to details
10. Be friends to all and help everyone but dont associate with crap bums

I am going to Halifax for Naval Engineering Training. Would like to have some information about CFB Halifax and family accomodation around the base. It seems that CFHA has no housing on base available. I am a small family so a 2 bedroom apt is what I am thinking.

I will be getting my commissioning scroll and I am going off my CADPATS to Navy NCD. I have passed the first stage of my dream in years to wear a navy uniform. I am excited

Actually I was speaking in general terms about this thread.

I could care less about your degree.
