Applying in RCN Reserve - Summer training
« on: May 04, 2017, 20:43:45 »
Hey guys,

I've just applied in the RCN for reserve - Logistic officer.

I have a job where I am committed every year till mid-july. Other than that, I am pretty flexible. After July 15th, I am fully available till the beginning of september.

While I can do the summer training on may-june-july the first year, I might no be available to skip work before July 15th the next few years - do you see that as a problem ?

thanks for your answers!

Well...

Your first summer will most likely consist of basic training. Given that you're free the first year, that should pose no problem.

Your second and third summers will be taken up with two months (or more) of training each year, usually spanning June and July.

If you can't be free for June and July, you're going to be limited on your ability to take training.

Based on the Op's comments....He needs to engage his NRD CoC and the Canadian Forces Liaison Council (CFLC). I have seen employers successfully accommodate sailors due to the ability of all stakeholders willing to work together on leave / training, pay issues.

I've just applied in the RCN for reserve - Logistic officer.

If it makes any difference to the discussion,

I'm in the process of applying in the Navy Reserve for a NCM trade.

I did apply online. Chose Logistics Officer at first. Then I picked up NCM trades when visiting the local regiment.

Just to let you know you can either apply as an officer or an NCM, you cannot apply as both.  Just to manage your expectations...

Yes, I know. I could pick Logistics Officer but was told there were not too many opportunities, so I chose NCM trades instead.
