I’d say there is a big difference between SAR and TAL. While the items mentioned by Ditch are the same, the missions are totally different. Expect to be away from home at least 100 days a year in TAL. If you are deployed, which is a high probability right now, the deployments are 3 months in...
You could check a "John Russell" as well. He is listed as his brother, also in the same EMS classes and apparently also in the CF. Maybe an older brother where he is getting kit from???
The website contains pre-made workout/running programs based on some parameters you enter, but I could not find a spot where you could specify a certain activity that you want to partake in for approval. There isn't a checklist like what was on the CFExpress form either.
In addition to what DAA stated, I think the Eligibility Criteria "C" would also preclude you:
I'm sure it was a typo, but leaving the title of this thread the way it is might also preclude you based on Eligibility Criteria "B":
So you would be reloaded between you 3rd and 4th years? That would make sense because isn't that what they normally try to do? BMOQ between 1st and 2nd, SLT or OJT between 2nd and 3rd, PFT between 3rd and 4th, and AMT, sea and land survival after you graduate. 90% of the people I was on course...
Do you have a source for this? Completing PFT prior to the end of university would speed up the training process and PFT can easily be completed during the summer, especially with the shortened syllabus.
If I am reading their collective agreement correctly (http://www.opseu.org/lbed/2009-2013%20CA%20Signed-Executed%20120329.pdf), then that would be an incorrect assumption. From a wage perspective, a permanent full-time retail person starts at $47,000 per year and will be at $55,000 per year...
The comment was tongue-in-cheek..... I have ended up with three photographers for the wedding. We hired a husband and wife team that work the event together and they asked if they could bring someone along that is shadowing them.
If you do go though, feel free to come say hi!
I have seen photos of RCAF mess dress worn with boutonnieres for weddings, but I can't seem to find a reference for it. I have found many US sites that state they are never worn with uniforms, but nothing specific to CDN practice. Is it acceptable to wear a boutonniere with mess kit?
This is not entirely correct. The fitness test is performed during BMQ/BMOQ for reg force, but there is a physical exam (medical) performed during the recruiting process. During the medical, the only physical "task" that they made me do was the duck walk for a few feet.
