MSc Computer Science, admitted on prior experience and training. However, depending on how hard the Baccalaureate requirement is UTP-NCM or CEOTP may still be on the table. This is what I'm trying to ascertain. Is the Baccalaureate a hard requirement or is a Master's generally considered to meet...
Both the UTP-NCM and CEOTP require the member to complete a Bachelor's/Baccalaureate Degree.
DAOD 5002-9, UTP-NCM:
2.1 The CAF recognizes that some NCMs possess the personal qualities and the potential to serve as officers and provides them with the opportunity to apply to undertake the...
Can anyone advise if it's possible for an NCM to be Commissioned if the member has a Master's Degree but does not have a Bachelor's?
UTPNCM and CEOTP reference baccalaureate degrees specifically, however, I don't know how higher degrees fit into the plans in the absence of a bachelor's.
If I can piggy back this topic a little bit - what are the training requirements when an experienced NCM switches to the Officer side of the house? Let's say it's an experienced MCpl, Sgt, or WO for that matter. Are they exempt from anything other than BMOQ?
This may be comparing apples and oranges to a degree, but the Metropolitan Police have a direct entry program for Inspectors and Superintendents. According to them it seems to be doing well.
Yeah just asking because it specifically refers to now hiring via Direct Entry at the top of the page but goes on to say "soon" accepting DE like you mentioned. I don't have a horse in the race either way, bit of a mixed message though.
Looks like the Cyber Operator recruiting page was updated yesterday to "Now Hiring: we are now accepting applications for this job through direct entry"
Does anyone know if that's true? I thought it was staying in-house for another year or two.
This is a random hypothetical that has crossed my mind:
Would the CAF (or any Military really) be more or less effective had it adopted a "unified/singular" rank structure along the lines of the RCMP, or most any police force, and why?
Why have Militaries historically separated their...
I don't have the specifics but as it stands there is a selection process and cyber testing in place for the next batch of Cyber Op COT's. Whether that will remain once the occupation is fully staffed I have no idea.
What kind of selection process are you referring to?
Not true, nor does it say in the ad that's required. I know several people in that position without a degree or a diploma for that matter.
If the CAF wants to retain the people whose education they're investing in it would be wise to spend a bit extra on salary rather than lose them to another...
I'm sure I'll take flak for this but it should be Spec 2.
Both industry and all levels of government pay their new civilians well beyond the Spec 2 range. The CSE pays 74k for a brand new Cybersecurity Analyst plus overtime. That roughly equates to the salary of a Spec 1 IPC 4 MCpl and reaches...
Looks like the SOF analogies weren't too far off the mark
That's nonsense. Take a look at the list of career options in the CAF. It's not all Combat Arms. Doctors, Cooks, Lawyers, Musicians, Clerks, various Scientists and Engineers - how are they any easier to indoctrinate?
