Nevertheless, time will tell.  Selections for AVS Tech are now done "bi-weekly", so if they don't have an offer within 2 maybe 3 weeks, then something is "rotten in Bangkok".

Is this true? Selections for AVS Techs are being done bi-weekly? Also, do you know how many they are offering jobs to during each selection? I was told by someone at CFRC Halifax that there are over 200 semi-skilled applicants for AVS Tech. Seems a bit much for semi-skilled but I wouldn't know. Anyone have an idea?

If DAA said it, its pretty much a guarantee that its true.

Yes, it is true.  They are probably offering jobs to "anyone" who has been "Merit Listed", so if you don't get an offer shortly, then it's obvious that you haven't been Merit Listed.

If Halifax says there are over 200 semi-skilled applicants for AVS Tech, then I would think that at least 98% of those haven't been merit listed.  Do the math yourself....

I had a question; once I got the email it said to contact there 1-800 number. Once I called there they took my contact information and gave me a phone number. They said should I not be contacted in this week to give them a call to book an appointment for the CFAT. Did anyone else have to do this? I'm kinda worried they have not yet contacted me :$.

I did not have to do that here in Halifax. After several months after applying, in October of 2013 I received a call to schedule my CFAT.  Just keep near the phone, and if you don't hear anything, give them a call with the number they gave you.

Best of luck,

Personally, I wouldn't wait for them to call you, I would be calling the 1-800 # which was provided in that email and try to get yourself scheduled for the CFAT.

They are very busy at this time of the year, so don't expect them to return your call.

I tried calling multiple times....just keeps ringing and ringing and ringing...maybe they think the number on display is a joke as it's a Swiss number...and yes, I do have the time difference in mind.

If you are calling from outside Canada, the 1-800 won't work.

The number is "area specific".  So if your in Toronto, it will ring through to Toronto.  If your in Pembroke, it will ring through to Ottawa, etc, etc.  Basically the call get's routed to the closest/responsible CFRC.

DAA... you seem to be in the know...

CFRC Det Barrie has asked for more details for my PLAR.  Further verification of hours worked in my field.  When submitting the requested breakdown of hours do I list the hours worked...or the actual hours of on-duty, hands-on, doing work related activities - time.  I can break down the information this closely as I was working as a paid contractor and kept track of hours for on-duty, travel, breaks, admin, etc.
