Congrats!!  Same BTL Date as me.  Hopefully on the August course as well!  I'm sure they've thought out the numbers and wouldn't intake more OTs than they have room for on the August course.... Yeah Yeah, I know... I'm expecting a lot.

Hey I was wondering if MPs are EMR qualified? Or are they just First Aid/AED like everyone else? Just wondering if I should get my EMR renewed before my course.

I’ve never heard it as a requirement for the trade, and if it was they would provide it. That said, higher level first aid training is always value added. Do the course if you want to and are interested, because you never can know when you’ll be in a position to use it.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Hello, very excited to report I will be attending the MPSP this weekend in Borden.

My understanding is that I will be administered only the BII portion of the old MPAC.

My email specifically states that the interviews are only a few minutes long, can anyone confirm on the length of the interview?

Good luck to all attending this weekend.

It will definitely be longer than a few minutes,  I will not comment on exactly how long mine was but the email I received said be prepared for a 2-3 hour interview.  I have heard a varying lengths, i guess it will just depend on how much you have in your past to talk about lol.

I figured it must've been a typo. I suppose it will be similar to the RCMP PEP exam.

Once you've reached the end of the interview and there's something your interviewer wants to have clarified/explained further, that's the time they'd do it. So even if you finish early, they'd definitely utilize the time given for the interview.

Just a reminder that every post you read about the BII advises you to do; be yourself.

Hey folks, just a quick question.  Maybe for the folks that have gone the VOT route in the future.  I know a few of us who have received our offers and have accepted them.  Any idea on when we should expect to see course loading messages or even the "instruction package" that was eluded to when the acceptance message was sent off.

Thanks for any input.

Congrats Djtc!
When does your basic start?

I just got an employment offer as well, starting basic in August!

For new applicants wondering the wait time Ill share mine,

Applied June 2017
CFAT/TSD August 2017
Medical and Interview September 2017
BII April 2018
Enrollment offer May 2018
Total wait time: 9 Months

This was my experience of course, your wait time will vary from applicant to applicant. I've read that some were waiting over a year for their offer to come through.
Anyone else waiting for their BII/Offers, be patient and good luck!

Mine starts in June. However if successful, I am sure we will see each other on the ql3 course.

Where did you apply from

There are 2 MP QL3 courses a year, one starting in January and ending Mid May and the second starting in August and ending in mid December. If you miss one of those and have to wait, you will be put on OJE at a detachment nearest the location you applied from. Good luck.

Hey guys, just curious if anyone knows when they'll start calling people for MPAC/BII for non commissioned mp applicants?

The next round will likely be centered on the 20-29 Oct 18 timeframe.  Not saying some may not happen before that, but that is quite likely when the majority are going to be done next.

Thanks for the info garb811, looks like I'll likely be waiting a while until further processing. Just more time to prepare i suppose. BTW congrats kanobii on the job offer and good luck with bmq and the mp academy.

Some Great News!

Got confirmation today that I am on the QL3 Course from 7 August - 12 December 2018.

It was recommended that I submit a PLAR for BMQ-L, hopefully they actually award it to me.  My PLQ Qual should help me towards that, but we shall see.

Has anyone other than WEng87 received a loading message for the August course yet?

I haven't seen anything official yet, so I'm guessing it's still coming down the pipes.

I was only informed by the BTL manager, because I had a PSO friend go snooping around with her contacts.

still waiting on official loading message, I was told they'd be out last week... but nothing.
