Hi,

My understanding is the BMOQ-L mods must be completed in this sequence:
BMOQ-L 5 Course ID 117680
BMOQ-L 2 Course ID 117677
BMOQ-L 1 Course ID 117676
BMOQ-L 3 Course ID 117678
BMOQ-L 4 Course ID 117679

Can anyone confirm?  Apologies if this repeats another thread -- mods please move if required but I could not find.

5,2,1 can be completed in any sequence prior to 3 and 4. After 5,2,1, mods 3 and 4 must be completed in order- 3 then 4.

As an applicant, is it too far out of my arc to ask what the mods in essence cover?

I know if I'm lucky enough to be selected for service I'll find out perhaps, just curious in the meantime.

Best,
Scott

Does the caf have info like this posted somewhere (on the internet or some intranet). I'm going to be graduating BMOQ soon and it'd be nice to know what I have in store for the future.

I checked Army National Calendar last night.  I did not see any new dates for DP1 BMOQ L beyond the course starting Jan 25 and running to April 8 -- however I would expect there is a Spring and/or Summer serial for the course.  Does anyone have dtates for the course after April 8?

Thanks in advance for any help,

That's a new fiscal year, you won't see those until beginning February at the very earliest.

Has anyone had experience  with going up the CofC to have mods 'written off' due to past military and civilian experiences?  Asking for a friend.

BMOQ-L should be completely written off if the member has completed PLQ-L. CAF PLQ writes off only BMOQ.

Thanks, this will be dependant on when PLQ-L was completed as well as other factors. Will consult with my buddy.

Hiya,

I'm new around here, I just got an account at least. I'm in the midst of enlisting for RMC in 2017-2018 and I know I have to finish BMOQ mod 1 before actually getting to the University to get my fitness level where it really actually should be. But I've never been really active (I blame my parents for not putting me in sports as a kid) and I'm basically starting from scratch here. You know those couch to 5K plans? Well, I'm trying to Couch to Basic in 6 months.

Crazy? Probably. Does anyone have any tips on getting myself up there? I know I have to get good at push ups and sit ups but I don't really get the running standards. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ronni

Ronni I am saying this, before others, because I will likely be nicer... ;)

I am not in the armed forces and have no right to an opinion on this matter, so feel free to take this with salt.

But unless you were sarcastic... you made your life choices and you are responsible for them. Blaming someone else for what happens in or to your life, rarely gets you ahead. So swallow the bitter pill that you are out of shape and steel your resolve and make your way to becoming a fit fighting machine.

You can do it. Just dont blame your parents, walking, running and isometric exercises were and are free... you just chose not to do them.

Any rate good luck bud. I said this in the nicest way I could and meant no offence. If you were joking disregard it aside from maybe not doing so in the future... many people may not think it is funny ;)

Two things:

1. Listen to what Abdullah said; and

2. For help with your running drop by the Running Room. They have running classes designed to get you from the couch to your goal. Whether that is 5k or triathlon

As others have said, you alone are responsible for your choices, and the last thing a prospective Junior Officer should be doing is passing the buck.

Regarding fitness, do some HIIT workouts at home. There's no equipment required and there are all kinds of videos on YouTube.

Hi. I joined my local reserves unit and am nearly finished my weekend BMQ. I'm now trying to figure out what I'll be doing for the summer. It seems like I'll be going to Aldershot for 2 weeks to complete my BMOQ then I'll have the option of doing my BMOQ-L/CAP in Gagetown or Aldershot (for 10 weeks?). I was hoping for some insight into the courses and the different locations.

I've been told Gagetown is more difficult, usually has many more injuries, has more resources, but doesn't necessarily produce better officers.

How do they compare in:
Difficulty
Quality of learning
Facilities
Resources
Time off

Also I was wondering if we have weekends off while on these courses (one officer I talked to said it's 6 days a week)

The few officers I've talked to strongly recommended Aldershot because it's an easier course and everyone parties on their off time. I'm not big on partying and Aldershot is quite a ways away from my home town so I'd probably not have much to do on time off but if I go to Gagetown then I could drive home on weekends.

I'm hoping this course won't be like BMQ. I found that the the learning pace is incredibly slow, the course material is boring regulations instead of soldiering skills, the instructors are lacking knowledge about basic course material, the pt is pathetic, and the troops are unmotivated (not trying to sound like an a**hole).

My plan was to join the reserves to get a taste of the army (see if it is something I would like to make a career out of), improve myself, and have a little fun. My main plan is to join the RCMP after school and I'm trying to decide weather I should give up entire summers and graduate from university later as an officer, or have a little fun and still go to school full time in the summer as a NCM (Since I'll probably only be doing reserves until I graduate. But if I want to join Reg force as an officer later on I should be able to switch back).

Any information/advice is appreciated.

Thanks!
