    My CIC Application Odyssey

    I recently retired and was wanting to be a CIC officer. You touched on something with the reference requirements. It was a difficult task as people rotate through positions quickly and could not think of anyone at the required rank level that fit the parameters they listed. Given that and...

    CFB Esquimalt

    Selection Dates 2013-2018

    Keep in mind that they can only load  so many people on a BMQ course, and your sons chosen trade is only one of many that require people.  There will be more courses and as they pick their way through the list in the future I am sure his number will come up. It is rather out of the file managers...

    Credit Check Superthread- Merged Topics

    The credit check as you should have read by now will expose your history of delinquent debts.  A plan will not change that outcome. You should have had a plan in action and a history of following through already.  So far this is what your debt management history looks like. :trainwreck: I...

    Naval Weapons Engineering Tech Course

    I was wondering if any current or recent Weapons Engineering Techs would know what the typical class size is for the non SEP course run at the fleet school.  I was also curious what time of year they start and if they are running more than one serial.    Are these courses run at Esquimalt or...

    CFRG and the broken recruiting system-Split

    It appears to me that part of the problem is bottlenecks at the medical file reveiw, and security/background checks.    I just did my file update and now have to provide another list of references.  They will get the same list as before with a similar result, but will still take time to...

    Boy, these posts take me back.  I recall when I joined as an Arty reservist in 82 that slide rules, plotting boards etc where the main tools of the CP.  A short time later the HP calculators arrived and I was trained on them in 83.  In my unit the programmable calculators of one type or another...

    BMOQ January 13, 2014

    Congrats, at least I know where 2 of the supposed 6 or 7 LOG spots went to.  I have a partial bypass so IF I got/get selected will likely not know until near, or after the course commences.    I applied for Navy LOG.    Waiting for the other shoe to drop is soooo much fun.  Right up there with...
