About those deployments or long term contracts, are there real chances of being able to do them after getting trade qualified? Do they require changing to the Regular Force?
Nope. One thing you'll become quite familiar with is CFTPOs (basically short term taskings) and "REOs" (reserve employment opportunities - these are essentially job bulletins for reservists (not just naval reservists)).


Further to Lumber's explanation, Reserve Employment Opportunities are online if you want to see what is available.   http://armyapp.forces.gc.ca/reo-oer/en/index.aspx

Thanks to Lumber and Blackadder1916 for all the information. It's been very helpful. I'm very excited to get started in the CF.

Now all I need to do is wait and hope that everything goes well in my application.

Wish me luck.

Hi everyone,

Apologies for resurrecting a long dead thread, but I can't seem to find an answer.   Are Air Force and Navy Intelligence Officers still required to do CAP (BMOQ-L)?

I am wondering the exact same thing so thanks for asking! It doesn't specify on the site that only Land candidates need to complete the Common Army phase... it seems as though an Int Officer inherently needs the Land training, regardless of posted environment.

Hey guys, Im looking for some information from past or present Intelligence operators.

I just put in my VOT last month. I would like to hear something from people with real experience, as after 6 years in my current trade I understand that the videos on the Forces website can be a bit misleading.

Cheers
I joined the Army once...

Questions about the NCM Intelligence Operator Trade
« Reply #430 on: January 17, 2020, 02:36:21 »
Hi, there! It's my first post so I'm sorry if it's not in the right place. I'm sure it's been asked a hundred times but most of what I searched is relatively dated information - so I was hoping for some fresh insight.

I've been considering a few trades, but the NCM Intelligence Operator has stood out to me so far. I've yet to ask the recruitment office about it yet but I was just looking to get a take from people who have a general idea about it. I'm mainly interested in knowing how competitive of a trade it is; how hard it is to get into and an estimation of how high I might need to score in the CFAT to be eligible. Any other information about the job, apart from what the video says on the career site, would also be greatly appreciated!
