    Promotions in the CAF [Merged]

    Oh I know that,  the most confusing part that boggles the clerk and myself is that on all of my official paperwork it notes Pte (T) which is wrong then because in the regs don't you need 30 months to be Pte (T)? Once you get Pte (T) you can technically be promoted to Cpl within 6 months upon...

    Promotions in the CAF [Merged]

    I've been reg force for just over a year and my clerk and and sergeant major have been a bit bewildered by my promotion paperwork. I came over as Pte (T) as a skilled CT during that arty signing bonus time and was allowed to keep my "hook" as I came over to the regs as skilled. However on my EPZ...

    Cadets vs Reserves for RMC applicant

    It's hard to say which one is better to be honest, yes if you go PRes and decide later on that you want RMC you will get paid more than say an standard OCdt fresh out of high school or whatever. Also you'll gain some respect for what the majority of what NCO's go through on a "daily" basis. Also...

    Paying Compliments (Saluting, Verbal Address)

    Another quick hijack here, I was taught that if an officer has neither head dress on or has his arms full it is acceptable to smartly snap your hands to the side and pay compliments that way. I was told by one of my buddies that you still salute no matter what. What's the correct procedure for...

    First move upon CT, awaiting training, dependants, with a house

    I just did a component transfer and it's still known as IRP at least in CFSU(O) OR it is. What I experienced is that IRP will contact you and the first meeting will just to sit down and get acquainted with one another and sign some basic paper work. After that they will figure out what's  your...

    Differences betwen PRes DP1 Artymen and Reg DP1

    I recently got my offer for a CT and was half-expecting to have to re-do one or more of my courses namely DP1. So when my offer came in, lo and behold I wouldn't have to do any courses over again!

    Differences betwen PRes DP1 Artymen and Reg DP1

    I understand that in PRes you only do up to Mod 4(I believe) of your DP1 FD Artymen, and in reg's you go up to Mod 6(Once again I believe). Can anyone clarify this for me and explain what the last two mods are? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess the 81mm mortar and the M777? Thanks.

    CF Replaces "Arty-Sim-ed" Porta Pottie @ Gagetown

    My apologies on that last one. Two of our staff did it to illustrate how dangerous it is....the Course WO was not impressed.

    CF Replaces "Arty-Sim-ed" Porta Pottie @ Gagetown

    While out in beautiful Meaford on my SQ one of the guys in the next platoon over to us got up close and personal with an arty sim and it burnt his nice little hooch to smithereens. Same course as well we put one in an empty 7.62 ammo box and that thing must have gone around 75 meters in the area...
