BushyCentaur said:Hello, so up front, I have researched the following questions as much as I could. I received some answers, most were mixed or outdated and I've checked with my CoC who also seem unsure so just wanted to see if anybody else here knew.
Currently a Reserve Sig, MCpl who completed PLQ-A last year. I plan to start on working on my degree (I already have a 3 year technical diploma and will be doing a one year program to get my degree) this year. I wanted to OT to reserve officer, particularly Log O. Here are where my questions come.
My degree will be a Bachelor of Technology. Although it sounds more towards science, the degree is more focused around management, business and stats, etc. Would it be a suitable degree for a Log O?
Unlikely. A degree in Business Admin, Commerce, or Finance are preferred, although the PSO can confirm this for you.
BushyCentaur said:Secondly, if my OT get's accepted before I finished my degree, will I become a Officer Cadet or 2Lt? Not that it matters, but still curious regardless.
Probably Officer Cadet. You typically have to have finished your degree.
BushyCentaur said:Thirdly, where I have PLQ-A, would CAP be written off? Some have told me yes and others have said no.
Perhaps, you would need to request a PLAR.
BushyCentaur said:Lastly, would I be able to do the Log O courses before I finish my degree or does it have to be totally finished before I do the phase training? Also, how long is the log o phase training?
Provided you're degree is acceptable, you can start your Ph3 before you complete your degree. Ph3 training is roughly 4 months split between two successive summers.
The best person to fully answer your questions is the PSO. I don't know if there's one in St John's, but there should be one in Gander.
