Picking AVS Tech is pretty much a "guarantee" to entering the CF at this point, especially with over 140 positions available.

Just have to meet the Academic requirements, score reasonably well on the CFAT, TSD, pass the medical and interview.  Bus is waiting out back the Recruiting Centre to take you to St Jean.....  :-)

I hope you're right. Talked to the "file manager" today...He was unaware that I had done a CFAT more than a week ago and had scheduled a medical and interview for next month. After telling him so, he wished me good luck and said "After your next 2 appointments is selection and this could take anywhere from 1 week to 6 months or longer. "

AVS Tech is what they call a "threshold" occupation because of the length of training.  Which means that enrolments should take place with due consideration to just when AVS Tech Training is scheduled.  So, someone feel free to step in and correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that AVS trg is done by CFSAT in Borden.

So purely for example purposes........if CFSAT has an AVS Basic Occupational Training Crse (ie; QL3) scheduled to start on 1 Nov, then you would need to have completed your BMQ by then, which means you would have needed to start your BMQ by mid Jul at the latest.  Which in turn means that you should have been made an offer another 45-60 days prior to going to St Jean for BMQt, which backs us up to sometime in May.

Which now makes me think that CFSAT is going to be some busy if they have to train 140+ AVS Techs this fiscal year.    :facepalm:

I understand your point but there's also Performance Oriented Electronics Training course at the Canadian Forces School of Communications and Electronics Kingston, ON; between BMQ in St-Jean and CFSATE in Borden.... good 30-32 weeks.

According to CFSATE's website >  AVS Tech. training in Borden takes place 10 times a year, with a course load of normally 12 students.

My application sample to date. I wrote the CFAT back in June and was told that it will take about 3-4 weeks to complete the security screening at which point they will contact me for a medical/interview.  I guess it varies from RC to RC on how these appointments are scheduled as I noticed that some people wrote the CFAT had a medical and an interview all on the same day. Maybe my medical is going to be done at an other location? Anyone else from the shwa have the same timing?

 Anyways, I did well on the CFAT and the recruiter explained that the engineering trades were usually all in the red in regards to staffing every year; meaning I had a good shot at getting in assuming the rest of the process went smoothly.  I was a little surprised by this as I assumed there would be many applicants for engineering roles in the CF due to the fact that the job is well, awesome.  What do you guys think?

Oshawa is my recruiting centre.  For me, screening and medical was a week after CFAT.  Then a six week wait for the interview after that.  Medical and interview were both at Oshawa.

Good luck!  Hopefully you hear something soon.

I COULD be wrong here but I'm pretty sure that for you to be considered at selection you must be merit listed first...So if your interview/med are August 12th I'd say you probably won't be merit listed until at least September.
Maybe one of the senior members could chime in here.

Thanks anneadit,

I did not get a choice of BMOQ dates. I was asked to if I accept of decline the offer on the phone, and after accepting, was told that I would swear in on August 14th. Was also told to review the recruite package found at cflrs.forces.gc.ca website in preparation for BMOQ.

Good luck to you anneadit, hopefully well meet in St. Jean.

At my medical this morning I was given an envelope with a form to bring to an optometrist to fill out. At my interview I was told that I would be offered a job within a few days of returning the form because there are no applications in waiting for AVS. Right after the interview I ran over to an optometrist and got the form filled out and handed in. Hopefully they call this week! Anyone know if they call on weekends?
