    Medics requiring to maintain a license

    Renewal of licensing is not paid for by the CAF for medics. Registration with each province a medic moves to is also not paid for. Also, there are no script points or bonus PER/PAR points/mentions for maintaining license. Some of us have kept our original license (from BC in my case) current...

    I asked ChatGPT what trades were open for me

    You didn’t mention your percentile. Your score means little compared to your percentile. You are ranked against other applicants and your percentile says how many did better or worse than you.

    Pilot eye vision requirement

    Pilots all have the same vision requirements. Pilots require V2, which is up to 6/18 in either eye, or up to 6/12 in one and 6/30 in the other, but you must be correctable to 6/6 in one eye. The other cannot be worse than 6/9. The CAF uses metric for visual acuity, whereas your 20/120 reference...

    Medical appeal

    I just want to add if you are allergic to Advil, life is going to suck in the military. Every physical injury a soldier gets, the medical System prescribes ibuprofen. I know this doesn’t help you in your appeal, but I’m curious if it is all NSAIDs or just ibuprofen?

    Medical Certificates?

    On a side note, if the gum chewing condition is something that was not disclosed at recruiting you will probably run into problems, If it is a legit medical condition.

    Bariatric Surgery

    They do cover it once in the course of your service, however... you will have to work with your MO beforehand and lose a certain amount of weight (50lbs) prior to the surgery. This is not the MO's idea, it usually comes from the bariatric surgeon. You will also be on a TCAT for quite a while...

    Medical every two years not meeting standards anymore

    Enrolment standard for Combat arms generally is V3, or vision up to 6/60 in either eye, and correctable to 6/6. If you are currently 6/9 down from 6/6, you are not the same potentially as how you were at enrolment, but you still meet the acceptable combat arms vision requirement. Even pilot is...

    Starting BMQ Soon Prep

    I agree wholeheartedly, but there is a great number of people who drop out of BMQ because they cannot handle BMQ and think military life will be the same and not for them.

    Starting BMQ Soon Prep

    It is incredibly hard to fail BMQ. People get recoursed to a different platoon, learn from their mistakes and then graduate. Or people realize the military is not for them and drop out. Or people get injured and either leave or get recoursed to a different platoon once they are healed. You...

    Recruting Medical - Ear Surgery

    Only the RMO will be able to answer that question. Apply, and go through the medical exam. If you pass the exam with the minimum hearing required (H2 I believe?) then the RMO will review the potential impact of your prosthesis on your service. Note: your hearing is examined without any hearing...

    Enrollment Day

    Reg or Reserve? I am assuming reserves, because Reg F won't know their unit until they finish their trade training. At your enrolment they should give you a package with all the info you need. If they do NOT, do not leave your enrolment without the info you are looking for.

    CFAT score for Imagery Tech

    The numbers are not public knowledge, which is good because the actual number isn't so important. Get the highest possible score you can, as it is also graded on a percentile scale (how well you did compared to other applicants). You can retake it if you do not score high enough, but only the...

    CFAT Rewrite

    This is the third time you have asked this question. If your CFAT is high enough for your trade then there is no need to rewrite it. If it does not meet the cutoff for your trade, then you either need to choose a new trade or rewrite it, keeping in mind if you score lower this time that's your...

    Cfat test

    That is something only you can decide, but you need to consider: -Is your CFAT score high enough for your desired trade? -is there a chance that by rewriting the CFAT you drop below the cutoff for your trade? -is the part you need to improve on something for which you can study? Vocabulary and...

    Cfat test

    You only get 3 tries. period. Full Stop. And only your most recent score counts, so if the new score is lower than the previous one, that's the one that counts. So make sure you study for your next try.

    Public Service Health Care Plan PSHCP [Merged]

    The workaround a lot of spouses have found for the online claims is the member creates an account, and gives the spouse the login and password. Then the spouse can submit all the claims whether the member is home or away. The onus is on the spouse to ensure the member is aware of all the claims...

    A "Why" Dress Thread split from OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    It was an early January snowshoe ruck march, one of those 4AM recall things that Pet used to do too many of under the old Bde Commander. Rumour has it when the troops showed up with missing kit someone said let's go for a ruck march and show them why they need all their kit. But the issue was...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    My husband got told no appts available in our town, and when he volunteered to travel to where my parents live (still same province) they said no, your OHIP card says this address. you cannot go to another town to get your vaccine. Super frustrating.
