    PFT Syllabus

    As a student log book reviewer for my flight, 19 hours under the new PFT system seems to be "a lot" of hours.

    Well, not having to pay tuition, books and supplies will sure save you some money.

    Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP)-RMC 2000 - 2018 [Merged]

    To add a little more to what Goose15 was saying: In order to pursue ROTP for Pilot, the current ROTP entry standard is that an applicant must attain unconditional acceptance into an 'ideal' degree program. As a Direct Entry Officer, a wider variety of degree options are accepted. Contact your...

    ROTP at Civilian University 2004 - 2018 [Merged]

    There have been some cases where ROTP applicants have completed and printed a copy of the RMC Questionnaire, but have not actually submitted it to RMC. Thus, RMC cannot assess such applicants for suitability. I would highly recommend to all applicants that they confirm that they actually...

    Application choices

    As an aside/FYI, even if you could have MPO as a backup for MP, it would probably not work in your favour as the ratio of MP to MPO positions this year was almost 11:1. Historically, there are very few MPO positions each year, and from my brief time at the CFRC, I'd have to say MP is the most...

    At this point in time, recruiters do not have hard numbers for the up and coming positions available for the ROTP campaign. I do recommend that you apply to the jobs that interest you, as it is likely positions will be available for most trades, but the specific numbers can vary from few to many.

    True, sorry about that. I assumed that when the Det got to ROTP files, that would include sending out the link to any files received prior to the new RMC portal being opened. Hopefully they are aware of the directive that only files going forward from mid-September are being sent the link from...

    You answered your own question. When your CFRC gets to ROTP files, they will contact you with the information.

    At this point, yes. The ROTP campaign has only just kicked off. Some Recruiting Centres received ROTP files early, thus a limited few have heard from their local CFRC.

    CEOTP (Continuing Ed Officer Trg Plan) 2003-2018 [Merged]

    Thanks for the update. I've had a number of senior applicants inquire as to getting into pilot via the AEAD program. The timeframe is very appealing to them, but we usually get a few questions on the life & environment. Thanks again for passing it on.

    You should have received an email earlier this afternoon telling you to copy & paste the URL into the browser of your choice. Clicking the links in the email are tied to a faulty hyperlink, but the addresses themselves work if copied & pasted. People going forward will have a slightly...

    There aren't any Legal ROTP slots as the current entry standards require that "All Legal Officers must be admitted to the Bar of a Canadian province or territory, and be a member in good standing of a provincial or territorial law society." Thus, Legal officer will be removed from your ROTP...

    Working at a CFRC, we won't "put your file at the bottom of the pile" if you call and ask about it's status. However, most CFRC's in my region have seen a sharp increase in the number of files received, so it is taing some time to process them all. Please be patient, we are working as fast as we...

    Aircrew (Re)Selection

    Just as an FYI, the method of testing for ASC has changed and with it the conditions allowing one to re-take the test. There is now a one year wait period before trying again, with up to 3 attempts. There is also no longer the requirment to upgrade your pilot's license before re-trying (for...

    AF Spouses

    If able, the CoC will try and help you stay close to family (if that's what you want). I was recently posted at an airbase which is a ~3 hours down the road from home so I could gain relevant OJT. Due to personal circumstances and course time frames, I requested to be posted to an option closer...
