    Any women beginning training?

    I am not just entering, but have been in for four years as both NCM and now officer. I am a woman, and can answer any questions you have regarding that part of it. I can tell you for sure that you absolutely will run into unlike-minded people... time and time again. The CAF is a big machine my...

    University Training Plan NCM (UTPNCM) 2005 - 2018 [Merged]

    He isn't. Perhaps UTPNCM are still waiting on theirs but I and a few others around the country have received posting messages under SCP, and our COS date was yesterday.

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    Thanks RocketRichard! I don't have to do mod 1, and am only doing mod 2 - so this confirms what the clerk told me this morning. Cheers!

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    The civilian clerk at BTL looked up the reference this morning, and because I am trade qualified I am entitled to wear the TDO cap badge as of my COS date. I think I will ask her to print out the reference and carry this in St. Jean. Perhaps to cover my butt, I will draft a memo in advance and...

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    Good Day, I have scoured the forums and have found several threads that dance around the topic, but none that answer my specific query. Up until Friday, I was a med-tech. I was accepted through SCP for TDO and given a training equivalency of Mod 1 BMOQ. My COS was supposed to be in July, but...

    I am currently a medical technician and can tell you what category you LIKELY are if you can answer a couple questions. Do you wear glasses or contacts? If yes, are both eyes corrected with +/- 7 diopters? If no, how far can you read down the typical eye chart? Can you read down to the 20/20...

    Intelligence Officer / Operator

    As someone who has been exactly where you are, I feel like I can chime in on this. I have a Master's degree, and I really wanted to be an officer when I was initially recruited. I was told that the officer trade I wanted was not available for DEO that year (which was kind of a lie... but I...

    All About PAT (merged)

    Why not submit an ILP and get funding for some distance university courses? If that is a route you ever want to take, it would be a great use of time.

    University Training Plan NCM (UTPNCM) 2005 - 2018 [Merged]

    Not NCM UTP, but for anyone who applied under SCP, I received my offer for TDO today, so offers are starting to roll for that plan as well :-)

    Educational Requirements

    Yes, it is possible to apply; however. Recruiting budgets are tight and positions are limited. You will likely be going up against hundreds of other applicants, most of whom have completed high school. I know a good many of infanteers who have university degrees. When you join the military, it...

    Bagotville and English [Merged]

    I live in Bagotville. I came here first as an English speaking spouse. The answer to your question is no. Outside of the military community there are absolutely no English speakers. Even on base, many people have spent their entire career in this one base bouncing around from unit to unit. I am...

    Special Commissioning Plan ( SCP )

    Thank you, I have read that thread before and it left me with some questions still. I guess I will just list them and hope someone can chime in. 1) I know that for CFR, an NCM must be nominated for the program. Is this the case for SCP? SCP is open to all QL3 qualified individuals. Considering...

    Special Commissioning Plan ( SCP )

    Hello friends, I am looking to speak to someone who has gone through the process of applying to the special commissioning plan before. I am a Med Tech with a BSc, BEd and an M.Ed and am looking into becoming a TDO. I have some general questions about the SCP, and some more specific questions...
