    Summer 2012 BMQ/SQ for 39 CBG?

    All the new recruits at my unit were loaded onto a course, only to be told a couple weeks back that the courses had been cancelled and the others were full. I myself am still supposed to be doing my BMQL at WATC this june, but its not combined with a BMQ course I don't think. Chances are, if...

    Travelling as a reservist?

    I wasn't implying that he knew everything. That's why I bothered to post on here, just to see if there was any truth to what he said. And it looks like there is some truth to it, after all...

    Travelling as a reservist?

    No, he's BMQ and SQ qualified, but I figured he wouldn't just make somehting like that up!

    Half your course is 17? All your instructors and candidates are caucasian? That suirprises me. Where are you doing your course?

    Age Limits to Join

    I'm in BC too. You might've heard that the combat arms aren't hiring for reg force right now, cuz they aren't. Its really hard to get in to. I don't think that applies to the reserves, though. For me, I applied in april and it took roughly 5 months for the whole process, which is pretty...

    Travelling as a reservist?

    I'm a new reservist, currently in the middle of BMQ. Next september, I'm planning on taking a trip to africa (probably Kenya) to do a volunteer programme with an NGO. I was talking about this with one of my buddies, and he said that there are certain countries that, as a member of the CF, I...

    Age Limits to Join

    I joined at 17, and I'm in the middle of BMQ right now. Are you going into grade 12, or into college in september? Either way, just make sure you can balance work with school. Age doesn't really make a difference, at least in my experience thus far. And ethnicity certainly doesn't either. I'd...

    Wearing Uniform in Public (merged)

    Hi guys, Im a new reservist, and have no other means of getting to the drill hall other than public transit. Though we were never given specific instructions, a few of my friends have told me that there are certain things you aren't allowed doing if your in public with your uniform on. Like...

    Trying to find part of the application form online

    Hey, I noticed the exact same thing after screwing up on some of the forms I got a the Regiment. When I went online I found that there was a page missing. But I handed it in, and they never asked after it, and Im finished the applic. process. So I wouldn't worry.  :)

    Parent consent for fitness test?

    Oh okay. So for sure there is something that needs to be signed. I doubt my parent can get work off to come in with me, but you're right. It wouldn't be ideal to reschedule either. Hmm.... :-\ Thanks for your help!

    Parent consent for fitness test?

    Okay. I don't actually know how to reach them. Should I just call the recruiting centre and ask for an extension or something?

    Parent consent for fitness test?

    haha I guess that's what's going to happen. It's just a shame to have to bus two hours in and two hours back if I can't do the test. But I guess that what I'll do.

    Parent consent for fitness test?

    I know that the recruiter's answer is more reliable than a friends, but everyone on here seems to be saying the same thing. It is possible that the recruiter made a mistake, isn't it?

    Parent consent for fitness test?

    Well, I'm  confused now. Because I called the recruiting centre and talked to a recruiter, and he didn't know what I was talking about. He said other than my initial application package, my parent didn't have to sign anything. But everyone I have talked to says this guy is wrong. I don't want to...
