    I'm 33, waiting to hear back on my medical. I believe that if it's what you really want, go for it!

    (Captain?) JW Pankiw's Leica IIIa

    Hello, I originally joined this forum because I applied for ACISS... But one of my personal hobbies brought me here because I'm on a history hunt, which led me here! On my spare time I collect and sell cameras as a hobby. I found an interesting camera on a local ad here in Winnipeg, it was a...

    Application - How long does it take? (Merged)

    My MCC explained the next steps to me during my interview. I would recommend giving them a call just to followup. In my case I was given a timeline. Best bet, reach out to them.

    Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists (Sig Op, Lineman and LCIS Amalgamation)

    I'm on the Final Processing stage of my application for ACISS. I am glad that I decided to take complaints about ACISS (on this board, and reddit) with a grain of salt. One thing that makes me really happy is seeing this type of stuff, really puts me at ease. I've been working in IT for 10 or...

    Martial Arts/CQC Trg in CAF (split fm Probe of WPG soldier's suicide)

    In convincing me to submit my application to join the military, my sar tech friend that trains at the same brazilian jiujitsu gym I do, says to me "You get time off to do PT, I come at lunch and train. Come on man! Get paid to do jiujitsu" LOL. Also as a side note I recall there being a...

    What book are you reading now?

    Reading 'Salem's Lot (Stephen King) right now and I quite like it! Stephen King has been hit and miss for me: I picked up Night Shift, a collection of short stories, out of the blue because I like horror. It was awesome. I'd go far as to say King's short stories are better than his novels...

    Potential recruit looking for advice

    I am looking to go ACISS and I've been researching this quite a bit. I haven't heard that ACISS is going away. I have heard there's a new sub occupation though. My medical 2 and interview are Wednesday.

    Is it normal to be nervous and stressed?

    I am going in for my Medical 2 and interview next week... I've been stressed and nervous since I re-opened my file in September. I think it's normal when you care about something a lot to get stressed/nervous. I hope I get in and get to experience the "can't believe it's happening" feeling...

    Just saying hello

    Got an email today that I was approved for further processing. Did my Medical 1 last month. I was slightly worried about my HS transcript, but they said I'm good to go when I dropped it off :) More waiting game of course, but things are moving along!

    Marks / Grades: School / GED or PLAR [MERGED]

    I saw this post directed at someone else who posed a question and I was hoping I could get someone to shed some light here for me. There's a part that was slightly vague and wanted some clarification. ltmaverick25 mentioned this gentleman likely just barely meets the minimum requirements and I...

    211RapOp, I was speaking to someone on Facebook the other day, who's in the trade, he let me know it's changing in October. Not sure if this is 100% accurate, but he said ACISS is going to be broken down into 5 groups. - Signal Operator: making sure people can hear each other on the radio and...

    Just saying hello

    Ha! Honestly I anticipate the process will take quite some time. I dropped off some of my transcripts today at the RC, and just asked in general how long the process takes. He said that it can take 8-9 months to get things going -- and based on what I've seen here it can take longer. The...

    Just saying hello

    Just reopened my file this September... A friend of mine got sent to basic a few weeks back and in talking to him it reignited the ambition to join. The best part is my spouse is fully on board now. Two years ago she didn't like the idea of potentially moving, but now is fully open to it. The...

    ACISS Recruits - Where are you?

    I recently reopened my file, and ACISS is what I'm hoping to get in to as well. Just waiting on getting contacted for the medical, got to keep my CFAT scores from 2017. I'm 33, and have been doing IT work for over 10 years.

    Just saying hello

    Just wanted to say hello and to share my experience - I'll keep it short and sweet I promise. I recently applied, and am really interested in Communications and Information Systems Specialist. It seems like it's very similar to what I have been doing as a civilian for the past 10 years, and a...
