    Dates for LogO phase 3 ?

    Hey guys and gals, I figured I would post in this topic instead of starting a new thread.  Does anyone know when (or if it is) the 2010 training schedule will be released? I have been loaded onto the upcomming CAP course starting on 25 Jan, and I am curious to see if there will be a possibility...

    Travel experience in 10 years on the DND application form

    My Pre-Sec took 2.5+ years to go through, however, I lived out of the country for 2 years, and then travelled to all those nice quaint countries, like China, Viet Nam, Cambodia, etc...

    Travel to St-Jean and Worried About The Via Strike *UPDATE*

    I am slated for the Aug 31st BMOQ and have been informed that my train leaves on Aug 30th for Montreal. Now my question is, has anyone who is set to travel to Montreal via train talked to their CFRC about alternate arrangements due to the VIA strike (if it is still on going at that point)? I am...

    Application Process (Completed-Officers)

    Sorry for the repost, I figured I may as well post my info under this thread as it is primarily for Officer Cadets, and I would like to share ;) As for my workout routine, strength training 3 days a week (core circuit training, approx. 2hrs), and running 5 days a week (4 @ 5km, and 1 @ 10km)...

    All things LASIK surgery (aircrew/other -- merged)

    Well, unfortunately the original information that was given to me was not for Air Crew Status.  The waiting period after laser eye surgery for Aircrew is 6 months, and Medical will not even consider it sooner. Originally I was under the assumption that I could have my vision re-evaluated within...

    August 2009 BMOQ

    Well, I went into the Recruiting Centre yesterday, and talked to one of the Captains as my file manager is out on course.  I will be receiving my info package sometime in July, then with the swearing in sometime around the beginning of August.  I was told that they aren`t really in a rush to do...

    August 2009 BMOQ

    Thanks Logairoff, Yeah, I haven't been asked about any preferences regarding the swearing in, storage and/or getting there.  The only thing that my file manager told me was that they will be contacting me this summer. I think I will be making a drive to the CFRC tomorrow, and see if I can't get...

    Shin Splints, Blisters, and PT [Merged]

    Training properly is always key.  As I am an avid running, and at the gym 5 days a week, running every day, what I find works is a good warm up, for me it's a 5 min fast paced walk, a warm up stretch (calves, quads, hamstrings, knees, and shins -rotating your foot in an up to down circle...

    Head Shaving/BMQ (merged)

    Well I am slated for the August 31st BMOQ, and I have been sporting the bald look for quite sometime now.  Just to let you know, I did not originally wish to do so, lol, however thanks to genetics the choice was made for me.  I figured being bald looks a heck of a lot better than balding... I...

    File transfer between CFRCs

    I have moved twice since I started my application, from Ottawa to Thompson, MB, then to Guelph. It is as easy as going in and getting them to transfer your file, usually takes a couple weeks or so.  I went into the CFRC after I moved, so maybe going in before would probably resolve any...

    September 2009 BMOQ !!!

    I am going in for Log-O and I have been loaded into the Aug 31st course, got the call end of March-beginning of April.  I think the loading is dependant on where you stand with your CFRC and how high up the merit list you are. November weather in that area stinks, lots of rain, freezing rain...
