True, my medical opinion.
But I wouldn't trust your's over mine (or vice versa) I trust medical professionals (Unless of course you are one, then I am sorry).
And if we are talking about "my" condition that is not mental health related, I have been cleared. But the side of mental health; my...
While I am not going to say that ADD isn't a serious issue or is not, it varies from person to person.
My father has been an RCMP Officer for over 30 years and is diagnosed with ADD (I am assuming a mild form of it). I have friends from high school with more severe cases... but in all...
Well considering I found out my colour deficiency last year while applying to the Forces, I am assuming there is quite a few like me, considering almost 1-10 of the male population has a form of colour deficiency... a positive is considering I have 20/15 vision... but you are right, it might...
I have a question, I have a minor Colour Vision Deficiency. However all three trades I am applying to are CV3, does it still technically "disadvantage" me compared to those who are not?
I would think that it does not. Especially considering almost 8% of males have the CVD I have.
These Ideas seem unique. As an outsider looking in, I always found it odd that organizations such as police, EMS, military etc... Have different physical standards between genders, considering they are asked to complete the same tasks.
The idea of the testing really intrigues me regarding my...
Hmmm in all honesty, I know my CFRC did vision testing, and they gave me forms to identify the severity of my colour deficiency... I am not applying for any air crew positions, only combat arm trades..
Anyways to update, recruiter told me to call him about my application I am assuming my RMC...
To add to that as well, if it truly is just as simple as doing all your vision test at once that is not truly all bad. For instance at the CFRC they will do all those test there, I am colour deficient so last year they had me go to my optometrist to simply certify I am colour deficient. I found...
Talk to the medical staff ASAP. I had lasik done a few months back, I know for certain their are time-limits and restrictions put in place (medical safely), for all trades.
*** EDIT ***: I believe for the most part it is a form that needs to be filled out, however I think there may be more to...
By this point last year I had already been contacted, and had literally all my testing scheduled.. I hope I am not forgotten ;)
I think the slight change in how things are done (everything online) may play a role.
Just got my email to send in my stuff to RMC, this process is much different then the one I completed last year!
Going to have to call a recruiter to clarify things after this Greek Civilization lecture is over hehe
Thanks scriptox!! I really hope I do to, I am so happy to have been given the opportunity again and if not this year, then the next and so on.
And if I need help or have questions, I am sure I know who to ask ;)
Been awhile, but I am reapplying this year
1. Armour O
2. Infantry O
3. Artillery O
After getting a second and third opinion from doctors (more then a year later!!!), and both agreeing that my arms are good enough for BMOQ (one was in the Forces interestingly enough) I am now giving it...
