Hey guys, just a question. Im a reservist, CTing to the regs. Currently deployed and butted heads with an oc and now am no longer commanding a platoon. My CT is in and gone through for 00180 (Inf). Do you know if things like this follow your file from PRes to RegF and what kind of bearing that would have on getting a platoon after completing my mech training? Thanks guys.

How can I find out which trades are aggressively recruiting?

I have a few that I'm interested in, but could be swayed either way.  Unfortunately I can't seem to get any info to that effect.

It would be great if I could be a little proactive and find another trade to get into that'll get the ball rollin' sooner than later.

Much obliged,

Thanks for the links.

The first one is a dead thread from 07/2010 (last post), and a link on the forces website that doesn't work anymore.  I'm assuming that would have showed #'s for fresh recruits.  IE irrelevant for Res to Reg queries...no?

The other thread I'm looking through now has some more meat of course.  I've read back three+pages and it also seems to be focused on Reg OT's., not Res CT/OTs :(.

Correct me if I'm mistaken, but there is a separate quota for the Res - Reg pool (D Mil C, is the only one with these stats), Reg - Reg OT (BPSO will handle this only), and CIvvy - Reg Recruiting (Recruiting Centres, Forces.ca website).  I am only interested in the highlighted one.

100 Jobs in Trade X for Year Y

50 Jobs in Trade X go to CFRC's for off the street

50 jobs in Trade X go to D Mil C for CT's and OT's

Trade X needs this many WO's, this many Sgt's, this many Mcpl's, this many Cpls and this many Pte's.

I just learned that initial/first postings for CTs are no longer entitled to a move cost/HHT/etc.  What about home purchase closing costs?  Those still covered?

Can someone comment?

CBI chapter 209 section 8 appplies to non-IRP moves.  I believe that is the applicable framework for a first posting for a CT, though you should confirm that.

The Infantry CT Board sat last week.  It was chaired by Director Infantry, and the members were the three Regimental Colonels, and one non-aligned (Artillery) Colonel.  The last 3 PERs (if available) formed the primary basis for scoring of the files.  If you have been selected, and are offered a position on DP 1.2, you will command a platoon in the Battalion, irrespective of whether or not you did so as a Reservist.

FYI: Started in Borden May, 1, 2011, sat on PAT platoon for a while, on my common course now, my ACS 3's start in May 2012. Trade course went from a 9 to a 14 month course, with the changes came a very big back log of students. So basically it went from a long wait in PAT to a longer wait.  So in total it's going to be 2+ years before I'm "not a student".

Thanks, Baden Guy!  :)

I do not know yet if I will get to stay at my current unit or will have to move.  The only thing I know right now is that I'll be staying in Greenwood.  My VIE is 3 yrs, so hopefully I will stay put until then at the very least.  My hubby and I both love the valley!

Hi i'm currently a Pte. in the reserves. I wish to do a CT to a Weapons Engineering Technician and I entend to do it soon (ASAP). I understand the Navy trades tend to have a harder time recruiting and the numbers from last year (for general recruitment) was 31 regular training and 85 NCM-SEP. I understand that there are different numbers for CT's but the NCM-SEP seems to be the choice best number wise. I wish to do the NCM-SEP program which would be best to get into before college starts next year. So my question is how long does a CT for NCM-SEP take (approximately) and would I have enough time to get in before the school restarts?

Talk to your unit next December, you may hear something then.

Eaglelord17: If you're OTing as well, you're looking about a year wait before you hear back. Trying for next college semester may be a longshot.

Hey Folks.  I'm about to transfer over from PRes to RegF and I have a couple questions that I hope someone here can answer for me. My Transfer Date is 6 Feb, and COS date is 7 Feb.  I do not have my posting message yet (another issue altogether).  I've been told that I will start being paid as a RegF member as of my Transfer Date.  So 2 questions:

1.  Is that true.
2.  If I negotiate my Report for Duty (RFD) date 30 days to the right as I'm entitled to do, am I still being paid for that 30 days leading up to my RFD date?

I'm hoping to iron out these details before I give my current civi employer a departure date - as I don't want to have a gap in pay.

Cheers

1.  Your Reg F pay will commence the day your CT is effective.

2.  You will have to allow for the gaining unit/admin processes to get your entered into the Reg F pay system (CCPS).  When you RFD, you can ask that as part of your in-clearance.  If you are asking your report date be moved 30 days to the right, I am not sure where you are, but you could be looking at local/AR payment until you get to your unit and get into CCPS.

I strongly advise you, if you do receive Local/AR payments for Reg Force pay, keep track of when, how much, keep any paperwork WRT to them and give them to the OR on inclearance.  That way, they can protect your pay so you don't end up getting a double payment thru CCPS if the AR paperwork doesn't follow you in a timely manner.

This happened to me when I CTd a few years back and my CCPS/Reg F pay account was out of whack, and was a PITA to me and the pay folks.

Happens to everyone, I had to go every payday and get a cheque for 2 months.

Problem with you changing your COS date, is that your TOS starts on 6 Feb and you are supposed to be paid from that date but you won't belong to a unit until your COS date so you'd be in limbo. You can request to have your whole CT date moved to the right, did you just get your CT message? D Mil C was very accommodating in moving my date to the right as I was on a career course.

Some more to my situation. I've accepted my offer and am awaiting my Posting/ ETP message.   I'm moving unnacompanied and planning to go IR, so I can't arrange accomodations until I can talk to Brookfield - which apparently is not until my Transfer date.    This all seems to be waiting until the last minute, and thats why I'm concidering trying to move my RFD date.  I need my "Start Pay" date to be set. I don't want to change my Transfer date,  COS date or TOS date.

The IRP folks moved my date with my gaining CofC for me.  Not sure how it works now.  They should know the deal.  Read the manual!

The IRP manual does not really deal with the CT process and says very with regard to moving of dates and pay.  Thanks though.

edit: Also, I cant talk to teh IRP folk (Brookfield) until my transfer date.

I should have worded that better sorry.  Read the manual!  There are benefits, etc CF mbrs are entitled to that the IRP folks will not tell you about.  Read it from cover to cover.

Has your gaining unit's CO approved you to move IR? Its a different system now, IR is not automatic.

You should be able to talk to IRP as soon as you have a posting message, which you're waiting for. They shouldn't care whether you're being paid or not yet.
