dapaterson said:According to the medical standards for the CAF, pilots must reach the standard for "Colour Vision - 2", which is defined as:
CV2 – Abnormal Colour Vision (Minor defects) – CV Safe
Fail Colour plates
Pass Farnsworth D-15 Standard test
Thus, not being an expert, my impression is that you meet that standard.

A-PD-055-002/PP-002 COMM RSCH MOSID 00120, CANADIAN FORCES MANUAL OF MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL STRUCTURE VOLUME 2 PART 2 JOB BASED OCCUPATIONAL SPECIFICATION (JBOS) for COMMUNICATOR RESEARCH.
Section 1 - General, Special Requirements Para 13 states:
13. This information was verified as correct at the time of publication but may have been subsequently amended. Any questions or suggested changes should be addressed to the OPI with DPCA and DPGP as information addressees.
a. Medical Standards. CF Medical standards are detailed in A-MD-154-000/FP-000. The minimum Medical standard for assignment to the COMM RSCH occupation is:
OCC V CV H G O A
COMM RSCH 4 3 2 3 3 5
OPI - D Med Svcs
NOTE: The Medical standard shown is for initial assignment to the COMM RSCH occupation. Experienced personnel who have their medical category lowered will be considered for retention, occupational transfer or released by a Career Review Board (Medical) IAW CFAO 34-26.
I have no way to verify if the Med Cat info for Comm Research was changed, but the copy I just pulled off the IntraNet was amended 01 Aug 06.
Maybe a CFRC staff type or someone in the MOC can verify an amendment post-Aug 06.
