Brasidas said:There have been problems with the sig op trade from well before amalgamation. Amalgamation didn't fix those problems.
Meet sig ops, learn about the trade, get an idea of what you'd be doing. Don't expect to be anything other than the "core" stream of the amalgamated trade.
GrilledLincoln said:In regards to this some of the guys out at 1 HQ&Sigs who are fresh off their DP1 in summer are getting OJT's with the linemen and being nominated for 1.1, whether it happens is another story I guess.
1984 said:Yup...and there is a 30% failure rate once they get to CFSCE because there is no official measurement tool prior to going on course to determine fear of heights (or fitness to climb).
Spectrum said:Sort off topic...feel free to PM me as to not derail...but how often are Lineman at 1 Line etc on the road/tour? I know a few guys and they seem to be getting good amounts of TD and some deployments.
Spectrum said:Is there a demand civvy side for what Lineman do? Or not so much?
PuckChaser said:If you ask the implementation team, there are no stovepipes. They got rid of them with the legacy trades to make one big stovepipe with 4 smaller stovepipes inside it. : You're chosen for a subocc based on technical ability, CF need and personal preference once you've completed your DP1 and do some OJT at your unit. Then you go back to CFSCE for 1.1 in your subocc.
Either one, I don't know if I will be on PAT at CFSCE or elsewhere, or at all, but I guess I am more curious as to what the ACISS course at CFSCE consists of, i know its a lot of in class, Im more curious about the hands on training and PT, also if anyone can offer me some insight on food, at CFLRS, CFSCE or anywhere, my BMQ date is 4 weeks away and I'm super excited to get going, so I''m just trying to soak in as much knowledge as I can about my training and trade! Thanks for the info so far, you guys have given me the most direct andhelpful answers yet.-Skeletor- said:As for what happens at CFSCE are you referring to their PAT Platoon or being on course(DP1)?
