Has anyone received their course loading message yet? Christmas holidays and the course start date is approaching quite fast.

Next QL5A starts on Jan 17th and will be Navy and Air Force only due to operationnal requirements. There will be a single Army guy on it. Don't know if the loading message is out yet though.

We saw quite a few guys have their elements switched to get loaded on course, I wish the branch wasn't so bottlenecked for QL5 training. There are people who have been waiting for YEARS.

Information regarding Intelligence
« Reply #378 on: January 28, 2017, 17:20:35 »
Hello everyone,
First off, just wanted to say thank you to all the current and former members of the CAF, your service is appreciated!

Second, recently I have been doing intense research on joining the military and what not, and have also recently spoken to a recruiter. In April 2018, I will have a university degree in Criminology with Honours. My main point of interest is intelligence operator. I saw in a post on here that they do not accept intelligence operators right off the street and that you have to do another trade for a certain amount of years beforehand. However, the recruiter quickly shut that notion down and said I could, in fact, go right into intelligence (after BMQ and BMQ- Land). I was wondering why there are two opposite accounts on how to get into intelligence.

Also on a different (but similar) note, I have seen that most people are interested in reserves more so than Regular Force, and I was wondering why that is the case as I myself am looking at doing Regular Force.

Any and all answers would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you again.

A guy I know has been stuck on BTL for a whole year and got loaded on the current QL5 because the staff at CFSMI pushed for him to be loaded on it, even if he's Army.

Actually Dija, I think we worked together at VA-35. I got an OJE in Val if it rings a bell.

Good Morning,

I just did an OT into the trade. Would anyone happen to know the course dates of the next Int-OP QL5 course?

Thank You  [:D

This is a recruiting board; you may want to look for an area that is specific for Int Ops now that you're in, or speak with your chain of command. 
The search feature on here is fantastic.

Best of luck in your career :-)

There is a French course in Quebec city on May 10th however it is (mostly) for reservists. There is also a French course in Kingston around the 18th of May. The next English course is likely to be in August/September in Kingston though they might run one in May as well.

Intelligence Officer - Embassy Liaison
« Reply #384 on: July 17, 2017, 03:26:21 »

For int. officers posted at embassies, does anyone know what their duties specifically entail? And would reservists be posted at embassies?

I'd ask my recruiter, but there won't be any replies until after next week (owing to vacation).

Thank you!
