I have just CT'ed to Pilot, after being a reservist in the Artillery for 7 years and was informed that I will be starting the second part of BMOQ at the beginning of March. I have gone over the joining instructions and have also asked around for more information, but I still have a few questions that I hope someone can shed some light on.
1. What exactly happens to my issued kit? I was told by one source that I essentially keep all of my army issued kit, and get additional Air Force kit in St Jean, while somebody else told me that I will have to hand in all of the army kit once I arrive in St Jean, and then sign out the kit required for BMOQ.
2. How difficult is it for someone to join a BMOQ course halfway? The more I think about it, the more I worry, given that the candidates have had 8 weeks already to set the standard for inspections, etc.
According to the work flow process for CTing and when it comes to clothing....."a member transferring from the P Res to the Reg F does not have to return issued clothing kit, however, a copy of the clothing documents are to be retained by Unit Supply for accounting purposes and the original clothing docs are to be sent to the member’s gaining Reg F unit. Items on Temp issue such as the member’s weapon are to be returned to Unit Supply". I can only assume that this process will vary from unit to unit. But I would think, that this would be a really good time, to get rid of the old stuff and opt for new whilst you have the chance.
As far as joining a BMOQ course part way through, it happens all the time and nothing to be concerned with. You will most likely find yourself much more experienced than the group you are joining.
