Hey, there haven't been many people posting lately. Especially people trying for DEO Officers. I was wondering if this was because all of this year's spots are full?  Everyone else now has to wait till the new fiscal year in April?

Well, thought I do another update. Also, probably specific to my individual case, there were some instances that unfortunately extended the processing period, so hopefully people will find this helpful. Officially, it is still on track for the average 8-12 month time span. Ah well, all the more reason to prepare for BMQ, especially since it looks like to be a Winter BMQ (at least the kit comes with a Parka that Summer BMQ don't get,  :rofl:).

Officer/NCM: Initially, DEO [Logistic Officer]; Changed to NCM [Supply Tech] around May 2017
Trade Choice 1: Supply Tech
Trade Choice 2: N/A
Trade Choice 3: N/A

Application Date: January 15th, 2017

First Contact Date: January 20th, 2017
- Was in the US and had some other things, so asked them to put my file on hold with regards to scheduling the CFAT since I didn't know when I would be back.

Re-activated Application: February 10th, 2017

CFAT Date: March 14, 2017
- Passed with Officer and NCM trade available, both competitive scoring. Decided to do Officer given I had completed my degree and had 1.5 year formal work experience.

Pre-screening/Foreign Implications Check completed: April 12, 2017
- Since I was not native born in Canada, native country not NATO-tied [Mainland China] and both parents were working in US. However, was citizen for over 20+ years, so this step's waiting time was at the lower end.

Medical Date: May 30, 2017
- Had glasses since I was in elementary school, so as expected, need to get Vision tested and send in forums. Otherwise, good.

Interview Date: May 30, 2017
- Given my degree and 1.5 year work experience, both of which were hands-on and technical, I believe the most value and contribution to the CAF would be more of an NCM role. I also see myself transiting into a supervisory/management role after being proficient and experienced, thus the NCM to NCO with the option to SCP/CFR to Officer as a more fulfilling career path. Because file initially was for Officer, had to reschedule for NCM trade interview.

Medical (Vision forum) sent: June 01, 2017

Rescheduled Interview: June 08, 2017

Medical Completed: August 29, 2017 
- Called on August 08, 2017 and apparently the CFRC Mistakenly sent application to CFRC Vancouver as applicant with same name and thought I relocated. Took about 3 weeks to get file back.  :waiting:

Additional Forums Sent: September 01, 2017
- CFRC updated their Reference Check forum, needed to re-send. Dropped it off in-person to assure it would be processed. It was done by 2 Clerks at the desk. Now, I was notified by my new File Manager about the updated, but he wasn't there when I dropped it off. Thing is, he actually called me 2 weeks later to ask if I had updated the information. That's when I realized the emphasis of not just maintaining contact with the CFRC site, but specifically with "your file manager" to get the most updated information and ensure things are being processed. :facepalm:
 
Reference/Background Check completed: Late September - Early November 2017

Sent off to Competition List: November 08, 2017
- Due to Remembrance day that weekend, I probably missed the November selection period.

Competition listed: Mid-November

Position Offered: TBD
Enrollment: TBD
BMQ: TBD
