    Can I join signals with incredibly mild asthma

    The RMO is the only one who can give you a definitive answer. Your test scores, relation to former military members, and even trade selection (unless applying as a CIC officer) are not relevant. The issue is that you must meet the Common Enrolment Medical Standard (CEMS) in order to join, and...

    25 grand debt

    The blood test is not paid for by the CAF. As for your debt, it is not the amount that matters so much as if it is in good standing (if you have been making regular payments towards it or not). If you have not been making payments, then you will be asked for additional information. You should...

    ROTP vs DEO

    I would recommend applying now, while you are still in your first year of study. While it is possible to apply later, the RMC admissions department has a habit of finding applicants with more than one year of civilian university complete as being unsuitable for admission to RMC for ROTP. I...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    QV, there are a lot more rules that Vance potentially broke outside of sexual assault. Yes, consensual relationships are allowed in the CAF but they must be reported to the CoC, particularly when one is subordinate to the other. Vance signed her PER, that alone was a conflict of interest if they...

    Med Cat Question

    G1 and O1 specify completion of medical screening for astronaut training because you cannot receive that high of a medical category without undergoing said screening... of course, there are no hospitals in space, yet. Having no medical conditions or concerns will result in a G2/O2 medical category.

    Advice on choosing an officer trade

    Honestly, if I was in your situation, just finishing law school, I'd finish articling and get called to the bar first... it would leave the door open to potentially Occupation Transfer (OT) to Legal Officer later in your career, or to practice law outside of the military. If Keep in mind that...

    Intelligence Officer/Military Police Officer Applications

    If the trades are closed for this Fiscal Year (FY), then it is a matter of waiting 'til the CAF starts hiring for next FY (normally sometime around December). To be frank, your odds of being processed and selected for either trade in the RegF is going to come largely down to your aptitude test...

    Question for a Recruiter

    kcdist, I understand the frustration with the process of having out-of-country transcripts assessed for specific high school courses. The issue with the original transcripts is that the recruiters are not able (allowed) to assess if the courses taken are equivalent to the "Grade 10 Applied Math"...

    CFAT scores qualify for Sig, Intelligence, tech trades, but not Infantry?

    allista, by the sounds of it, it was not the PCL but your CFAT score by section that is the reason why you were not offered to be processed for combat arms trades, including Infantry Soldier. As I stated, it is possible to meet the minimum CFAT scores for many technician trades while not meeting...

    Personnel Screening Consent and Authorization form TBS/SCT 330-23E, as a minor

    As stated in the instructions, the applicant (you) will provide the initials in the "Applicant's Initials" box. The parent/guardian provides the signature. Actually checking off the boxes (1 to 4) can be done by anyone (sometimes the form will be provided with the checkmarks already inserted).

    CFAT scores qualify for Sig, Intelligence, tech trades, but not Infantry?

    allista, while I do not know your actual score, it is certainly possible to meet the minimum required score for Intelligence Operator, Signals Technician, and MP while not meeting the minimum for Infantry Soldier, regardless of the PCL. This is because the minimum requirements by trade are not...

    Grades pour les officiers

    Danilo, the promotion to Captain is granted automatically 3 years after commissioning, if the officer has successfully finished their initial occupation training. For a DEO, this would be 3 years from the day they start BMOQ (commissioning is backdated to the start of the course). Lieutenant is...

    Canadian Forces Aptitude Test (CFAT) [MERGED]

    The minimum CFAT scores required for NCM trades are not entirely linear... some trades just have a minimum total score whereas others also have a minimum score for Problem Solving or a combination of Verbal Skills and Problem Solving. It is possible that you met the minimum total score for many...

    Didn’t even get my RMO letter in the mail. What do I do now?

    First off, an application for ROTP is an application to the Regular Force (RegF). Assumedly you mean that you are reapplying to the RegF under a different entry plan. To get a copy of the letter, contact your closest recruiting centre and ask for a copy of the letter, or for a new one to be...

    recurting update needed

    ready to serve, it sounds like your CFAT score, which is given significant weight in the selection process, may not be particularly competitive. Ideally, you don't just want to be on the Competition List but at the top of it. I recommend to study and request to write it a second time. You've...

    recurting update needed

    Yes, it is quite common. The CAF receives over 70 000 applications a year, not all applicants that are eligible are given offers of employment. Your Military Career Counsellor (MCC) should be able to provide you with some advice.

    CT -- Reserves into ROTP/RMC (merged)

    MisterBig, the para on "reduction or reversion" in rank does not apply in your case. Transferring from Cpl to OCdt is considered a promotion, not a reversion in rank, regardless of the lower pay levels for OCdt (ROTP). The other para seems pretty clear, you will be paid at a rate that is...
