You have 2 courses on there from CFSAL that are not controlled by the army, i assume that was the original intent ?

They were in the original document, the courses are Army responsibility for management of content, but conducted by CFSAL.

And the winter warfare course question should be it's own topic.

You mean i should start a whole new thread on getting info on winter warfare courses?

Actually, in this case it might help. Some who could address the topic may not have seen the question because they aren't following the "course list" thread.

And then a mod can sanitize this thread of all non-applicable content.

How does it work with getting into a specific course??


In the reserve you fill out a course request form, don't know how it works in the reg force.

What is the course Miltary Tandem Master about?
"In a world spinning rapidly on its hinges, on streets cluttered with hood-wielding farts peddling disco biscuits and cheap fireworks, who is left to fight for honour, justice, and enough loose change for a bottle of happy shopper ouzo?

I was going to add that there is also a targeting course in the Uk open to officers and NCM, but are you restricting the list to only courses controlled by the Army?

The list in the original post was the list of course controlled by the Canadian Army at the time it was posted.  It has not been amended for any changes since then.  It does not include all possible courses a soldier or officer might attend in their career.

Michael,

Do you have the DIN link for the courses?  I'm assuming a memo through the chain of command is how one would get onto the mentioned courses?

Thanks,

Shaun

I am going to try and add the link to the 06/07 and 07/08 Army National Individual Trg calendars.  These list the courses that are planned by the Army for those respective years.

http://armyonline.kingston.mil.ca/LFDTS/143000440010602/Default.asp

This is the CTC Gagetown Website for those calendars.  Other courses conducted by CFSTG are found here:

http://borden.mil.ca/toc/english/training_establishments_e.asp

For certain career courses - your career manager would load you and for others a memo through the chain of command will do.  Keep in mind that you have to be realistic in your expectations of what course you can get on.  The next few years will see limited posns available on Basic Para courses for example due to the standup of the Spec Ops Regt and the need to reconstitute jump capability back into 3 RCR.

If you can get on the Army News website they have a feature on the Met Tech trade. Link below for the DIN.

this will not be the first time that question has been asked. I know you find that shocking. There are dozens of pages on it. SEARCH.

Too early for you to be worrying about that.  You have to get in first.  Then you have to become a Member of the Infantry Branch.  Then you have to become a member of an Infantry Regiment (Regular Force).  Then you may be recognized for your skills, knowledge and courses that you've completed, and be lucky enough to be nominated for the Crse.

I'm curious as to how courses are divided amongst Officers and NCMs.  For example I noticed that Desert Warfare is offered only to NCM's but Jungle and Winter Warfare courses are offered to both Officers and NCMs.  Is this simply a matter of not having enough instructors for an officer Desert course or does it have something to do with the nature of the officer’s role?  I'd also be curious about the sniping courses as they are all offered only to NCMs.  Are there no officers in the army who are snipers?  Do NCOs exclusively lead sniper detachments?
