Just curious if there was any Naval Reservists here who could tell me if they were able to fulfull their QL 2/3 levels when OJT on board a MCDV was required for 4-6 months?

I know that it says OJ can be broken up into segments to suit the members availability, but can you just do a month at a time if that's all you can get off?  Is there always one MCDV stationed somewhere at any given time for just OJT purposes and is there only certain times of the year they allow this training?

Hi,

There are not too many navy reserve people on this forum to my knowledge. A good website to try is a Navy reserve web group. The url is http://groups.msn.com/CANADIANNAVALRESERVES

There is a message board there and I'm sure the navy reservists there will have no problem answering your questions. Good luck

OJT signed off in a couple months... yes and no.
It really matters how good you are at what you need to get signed off as well as who your boss is. If you have a couple things left on your package, you may be able to teach a lesson at your unit... all depends on how good you are and who your boss is. I've signed off packages very quickly when I was a Snr NCIOP and I wouldn't sign off a couple pers packages because they still couldn't figure it out after a bunch of time, you set you own pace... but if the standards say it has to be at sea, you may just have to be a sea... GOOD LUCK...remember soem stuff can get signed off on training weeks during the year as well.

Cool, what coast?

My first ''ship'' was the Porte del la Reine, which I decommisioned a year later, then I was first crew on the Whitehorse (on the east coast only, I missed the sail around b/c of the req to go back to University)

Cheers,

Hey Sledge,

How does it work for naval reservists on the MCDVs - do you basically pick and choose which times you are available to go to sea? Or it always geared to summer?

I like that, pick and choose your times YOU are available to go to sea... ha ha ha that is a good one... anyways, if you are on a class b contract and the ship goes to sea, you go, don't worry though, when the ship is in harbour you always jump over to another to fill in a billet... my buddies are doing 210 days a year at sea....must be nice to be reg f, eh?

210 days? I was really thinking about class A reservists - or does the navy reserve just expect you to do class B contracts of that length on MCDVs? Must be tough to keep a civvie job under those circumstances.  Any way thanks for the information, I always like to keep track of what the other reserve services are up to, cheers, mh

Actually Staud the reason I went reg was to get a pension, more money, LESS sea time and eventually a shore posting. Hey do you know my ex? Her name is Sharon Lagace.
