WFE Tech Course Dates
« on: January 16, 2012, 17:27:56 »
Does anyone know when the next board sits and when the next course for WFE  is running?  I am trying to OT into the trade and have already met with the BPSO--am just trying to get a feel for the course schedule.

If by board you're referring to the AVOTP selection boards, they "should" sit very soon.  The deadline for PSO shops to have files to D Mil C was 15 Jan.

The target date for the initial rounds of offers for VOT this year is 01 Mar, with the second rounds targetted for 01 Apr.

Subject to change of course...

I know a 3s course just started recently, one of the guys in the building here has a wife who is on it.  7 months for the 3s.

Not too worried about math or multi-tasking, signed my offer today so I'll be headed over to CFSME shortly.

Congrats.  Looks like D Mil C is ahead of the game alittle this year for the OT offers.

It's been awhile but I have got another WFE question.  Can anybody tell me if WFE techs are posted after their threes, OJT or fives?  BTW, no course til January 13 at this point.

WFE course in Halifax rather than Gagetown?

There is a rumor that the next WFE Tech three's course will be run out of the Halifax vocational school or perhaps that two courses will be run similtaneously in Halifax and Gagetown.  Does anybody know if there is any truth to this rumor.  No WFE tech three's course is showing on CFSME's calendar so far.......

Good day,
                there are a few courses that have been ran in Halifax/Dartmouth. I believe they come from the Engineer School (Gagetown) to attend NSCC. Hope this helps. Ususally they stay at 12 Wing Shearwater for living quarters.

Regards,
Macey

If anyone knows the whens and wheres of WFE tech courses this year and would be willing to share, it'd be much appreciated.  ;D Thanks in advance.
Cheers.

Hey all, freshly minted WFE here.  ;D
For future reference for anyone starting or hoping to start this course, the WFE DP1 (formerly QL3) start date is mid-January, run annually. There is currently an approx. 1 year waiting period for anyone waiting to start course, unless you are intimately acquainted with horseshoes and unicorns. There are twelve students allowed on per course, though in recent years none have finished even close to 12 at CFSME. Best of luck to you, hope to see you rockin the microscope soon.
Cheers!

I had my medical and interview at the end of July, so I guess that even if they call me for BMQ in the next two months, I would not be on the WFE course in january, is that right?

BMQ-L (SQ) is not currently a trade requirement for WFE techs. After BMQ you will be sent to CFSME at CFB Gagetown. You will be placed on Holding Platoon to await your course. In the interim you can apply for OJE if you wish to stay at home until your course starts (highly recommended that you do - Gagetown can be brutal and on-the-job experience will assist you greatly with the course content). Or, you can stay at Gagetown and be part of the general taskings party until course.
