There is a quote (somewhat well known) about "stupid and lazy officers". Look it up, if you have time. It may foretell your career progression.
Mike7788 said:I have many friends in the forces who have told me to join the reserves first, instead of full-time, just so I know what i'm getting myself into.
Mike7788 said:As a reservist Pilot, would I have to be in post-secondary school to be part-time or on my way to completing a relevant degree? Are sufficient high-school marks(University courses with +65 average okay)?
Loachman said:The Reserve Pilot Training Programme was cancelled in the early nineties. It was a two-year fulltime process, and the courses were all Regular Force ones. HELICOP (HELicopter Industry CO-operation Programme), which replaced it, may still be in existence, but I've not heard anything about that for many years. It was never a rip-roaring success. The last minimum eligibility requirement, of which I was aware, was a commercial helicopter licence and five hundred hours. Other than that, one would have to be a former Regular Force Pilot.
Mike7788 said:If going for infantry or something related that's NCM, will my rank in the reserves carry over to full-time if I decide to take the plunge?
Mike7788 said:Is there voluntary training in the summer that lasts most of it's months (Weapons for example for infantry or flying for example Pilot)? Is this training mandatory? Would this training be similar to the training done for officer's (Yes i'm aware not the same but the way it works) who are getting their education paid for by the forces?

Mike7788 said:Would reserving with The Queens Own Infantry in Toronto(The only infantry to have a parachute jump) increase chances of SAR Tech?

Michael O'Leary said:The size and scope of the content here can make it a challenge to find things you know have been posted. For someone new that doesn't have a grasp of the applicable vocabulary, an understanding of the different trades, or the complex structure of the CAF, finding things can be a lost cause. This site has enough of a tarnished reputation from members telling newbies to "frig off and search" and mocking their understanding of the CAF. There are more than enough people here who claim to have vast knowledge and experience that are just too ready to think their time is too valuable to be helpful. Offering a few links, and helping a newbie sort out how to find things isn't being 'too nice," it's being a member of a community. And we've never had too much of that.
