Can I apply to the CF P.res as an officer while being a PT student. I dont really have the $$ or the time to be an full time student at uni. I am intrested in armoured Officer at a unit in 32 CBG. Can I do it? Or is it only Full time university students who can be Officer Cadets?

I searched the terms 'part time student' and found nothing relevent to my question, so I figured a new thread would be in order. well, if no one knows, I will phone the CFRC, but I diddnt want to use the time of serving members if I could find my own answer online.

Well, if you were to phone ME at work asking those questions, it wouldnt be a good use of a serving member's time....

The CFRC, well...isnt that their job ?

Or talk to the recruiter from the unit that you're interested in joining.

The short and sweet answer is.... NO.

In order to be considered for the RESO program ( or what ever they're calling it these days ) You have to be completing your degree full-time, because there's an expectation that you'll be done in a certain amount of time with your degree, and thus your commission, if you haven't done the requisite courses yet.

the CFRC person I talked to said yes. So I suppose I'll give it a try.

yes, that is very true, perhaps this whole fourm should just be locked with a title "call the bloody CFRC" since they have the most up to date information vs "my brothers friends dad had this happen when he joined back in '68"

More detail on it, they said it may be hard to find a Res unit willing to take a PT student, but that it is possible as far as technicality goes. Hopefully this thread will help someone else out when they search.

Well I didn't see anyone say, "call the bloody CFRC". Hell, I tried being helpful and gave you the links, others suggested you call them as they are the ones best qualified to answer your question(s). And you cop an attitude...

You know, for someone who has been around here as long as you have I figure you'd have it pretty much sorted as to what sort of answer(s) you'd get to your question....and yet you seem surprised ::)

And people wonder why some get a rough ride on this site when they ask these questions.

Well I never said "my brothers friends dad had this happen when he joined back in '68", what I said was that

Which amounts to, pretty much what the CFRC recruiter told you. You will be hard pressed to find a unit out there who would take you under the RESO (or what ever they're calling it these days ) program. Also another stipulation which applied before was that, you may receive your commission, but you will not progress higher then 2Lt without a degree. So.... how long do you want to remain a 2Lt for?

Also, nope, no brother. Hence your rd party info analogy doesn't apply. I'm under the RESO program right now. Take it as you want.

sorry guys, I wasn't trying to be abrasive, I was just commenting that it is really better to call the CFRC, they do have all the answers, and know all the ins and outs. so yeah, it might be hard to find a unit, but I'll give it a shot. Staying a 2lt? I dont care how long, until I finish my degree, which will probably be a good 5-6 years. Oh well, I'll live as a 2lt for that long. (I know of many Corporals with 15+ in rank...)

anyways I'm going to let this die, as no need for flames over a question from someone who wants to (once again) be one of you.
