Ok, how do you know you are going weapons before you’ve even set foot in Cornwall at the NavCanada facility? Don’t you do the course in Cornwall, and THEN decide (or have your instructors decide based on your in-class performance)?
Waiting 1 YEAR from time of BMOQ to Cornwall seems a bit much. Why don’t they send you for 2nd language training during this period of time? Seems like just the right amount of time to learn a 2nd language if done intensive.
I think OJE is on-the-job training, right? Ok, so how do you do on-the-job training when you haven’t had your trade training? How could a doctor or lawyer do their “on-the-job” training (i.e. residency and articling) if they haven’t gone to medical school or law school first? I don’t understand how you do on-the-job training without first doing the in-class component in Cornwall, ON.
darknesss said:My apology's timbit if moe is correct. Thanks for the good response, seems there is so much variety in this trade. I have been in the infantry for nearly 8 years, and finally got my offer to start course on july 14th. Already have the precourse material memorized, and im now going through the VFR, IFR notes, although i think its for the AES course? I was hoping to go to the air defense side of the trade, but my wife is a traffic tech, and we want to be posted together. Judging by the notes i have studies, it appears the air traffic side offers a much broader spectrum of postings. What is the course difficulty like. I have people telling me that it has an 80% failure rate, and i have ppl telling me that they drank every night, and didnt open a book and made it through no problem.
