    Posting messages

    I was informed through two sources, one being the CM, that they are having problems with BGRS and the majority of posting messages may not be out until next week.

    Obligation to Arrange Travel and Selection of Method of Travel

    Sometimes there are reasons for not allowing POMV.  It used to be an issue in Gagetown, when the reserves did a summer concentration at the end of the IT cycle.  The plan was for all of the vehicles that were EMO'ed in for IT, be driven back to their home units by the reservists that were...

    Retro Pay & Allow 1Apr 2014 - 1Apr 2017

    Besides barely keeping up with inflation, this raise also didn't keep up with the PSAC bargaining unit that we usually benchmark against.  The Services bargaining unit contains most of the comparative civilian trades.  They received the 1.25% a year, but also got additional raises.  For example...

    The "Nursing Officer" Merged Thread

    I have a few questions about the high readiness NO postings.  My wife is posted to 1 Cdn Fld Hosp Det Edmonton this fall, but we don't have a lot of details about the detachment, so: 1.  What civilian hospital do they work at? 2.  Do they work on their own, or is it similar to CPT where they...

    CANFORGEN on Pay and PIL

    Definitely true.  All of the people contacting them must slow them down, however they could have mitigated that somewhat at the beginning by providing the updates that they now provide on the PiL site.  Odds are that very few people would have contacted them at all, until the first few tried and...

    Accelerated Nursing Option

    As of last year, I know of at least one person that completed the Accelerated Program at UNB under ROTP.  They usually don't like it, however, since you cannot complete BMOQ during the summers, and they may make you sign papers stating that you will repay them for your schooling if you fail BMOQ...

    Source, supporting documents and other documents needed for processing

    You applied as an NCM, but one of your choices was "engineering/ mechanical engineer"?  I'm assuming you mean Electrical Mechanical Engineer, and that's an officer occupation.

    Bad news for that estimate.  That update was actually Oct 7 at 15,246.  October 15 update was just a link to Windows 7 SOP. So they averaged approx 1000 a week.

    MATA and PATA ( Parental Leave )

    I haven't the justification for why the change, but I'm assuming they were using the standard military way of calculating the daily rate as (month pay/30).  So for a month with 31 days(daily rate X 31), that was an extra day of pay, when instead is should have been (monthly pay/31) for the daily...

    MATA and PATA ( Parental Leave )

    I don't have much faith in their calculations anyway.  I took 3 weeks of PATA, and it appears I am having 1 days pay recovered.  How do they figure that I was paid for 31 days when I only took 21 days?

    Congratulations.  You'll definitely see some of the physical aspects during your training.

    EME Officer Degree

    If you can see the below attachments, it lists preferred and acceptable degree for each trade.  This comes from CFAO 9-12, and the image is not the best quality.

    EME Officer competitiveness

    Generally, it's relatively easy to get accepted into EME.  The type of degree and the environment tends to limit competition.  Keep in mind though, that you need to be reasonably fit and able to work in stressful environments to pass your training.  We had about a 20% failure rate on my DP1.

    St Jean Graduation Night off *Time Sensitive

    Last time I went through, 2 of the 3 courses were allowed out for the evening.  The 3rd course had their evening out cancelled because too many people were rubbernecking at personnel passing out on the grad parade.
