Recruiting Centre:Thunder Bay
Regular/Reserve: Regular
Officer/NCM: DEO
Trade Choice 1: Logistics Officer
Trade Choice 2: Infantry Officer
Trade Choice 3:
Application Date: August 3, 2004
First Contact: August 3, 2004
CFAT completed: August 17, 2004
Medical completed: August 17, 2004
Interview completed: August 30, 2004
PT Test completed: August 17, 2004

Update August 18th
- Completed the aptitude test no problem and qualified for all officer and ncm positions
- Failed the physical testing.   Had no problems with pushups, situps, or grip test but failed the VO2 Max.   I think the reason for this is because I ate a huge McDonalds meal 30 minutes before the test.   Will be retaking the test beginning of Sept.
- Medical was good except my eyes were not overly strong for distance so I need to see an optomitrist and get a form filled out by him.   Appointment for an optomitrist is set for August 19th.

Update August 20th
-Eyes are fine and healthy, just not 20/20.   Gave the form to the medic that the optomitrist filled out and the medic said I would most likely be classified as a V2

Update August 30th
-Had my interview, the Captain said I am competitive but he noticed on my medical that went out some number that may cause problems in Borden.   A pretty big let down as I thought my medical was going to not have any problems.   So now all I can do is wait, he also mentioned there is no point redoing my physical until my medical comes back from Borden.   Hopefully it will be back in time for the Fall Selection.....only time will tell

Update Feb 2nd
-Ended up finding out why my medical was not cleared the end of November.   Went to go see my family doctor for the necessary tests and then handed in the forms.   About 3 weeks later recieved a letter saying my medical is now cleared.   So I went into the RC and they informed me everything was good and they said I will do my physical testing after I recieve my offer.   Apparently I was selected at the last selection board but becasue my medical was not cleared they could not offer me the position.   They informed me I may recieve an offer before year end (March 31).   If not my file will be complete for this selection board in May and they told me if I was selected at the last one there is no reason why I would not be selected again!!!!   So it more or less sounds like I am just waiting until Septembers BOTC!!!!!!!

Update Feb 14th
-Went in to redo my physical testing.....passed easily except the VO2Max, scored 41 and needed a 39 so I passed.  That test is complete bullshit for people over 250lbs, I can run 6 miles no problem at a fast pace.

Update Feb 16th
-Got a phone call and got my official offer for infantry officer.  Will be going in next week to sign the paperwork and basic officer training is Sept 12th.


Position Offered: Infantry Officer Feb. 16/2005
Basic Training Begins: Sept 12/2005

Hi all, i'm presently in the reserve in 031 and i will transfer in the regular force. I finish my university in 1 month so I'm going in the EDO program. I'm gonna pass this week to have more accurate test for my eyes and other stuff. The selection board will be held around the end of march and I hope I will get positive answer for my first trade choice! In my case it went really fast and smoothly... maybe knowing the people help alot to faster the processus. I will keep updates on my situation.

Update march 8: Passed my eyes test at the ophtamologist and scored a 20/20 vision and having no eyes disfunction! One more step forward!

Update july 13 : Finally passed my medical. Got a rendez-vous at Trenton for passing the CAPS or something like that. Cant wait to go there!

Update july 31: Woot! I passed the aircrew selection test. I have to call my recruiting center to know what's happening now!

Update august 10: Finally got my official offer and i start my course september 13!

Offers are tied to the Strategic Intake Plan.  Each trade can only hire so many pers during a fiscal year.  Those positiopns are released for offers each quarter so that we hire people all year long.  LCIS and ATIS have a much lower number of positions than Infantry, so you may be number ten on the merit list but only 8 were selected during the 1st quarter board.  At the next board, after more files come in to compete with yours, you may be 17 on the merit list and again only 8 get selected.

Your file will only sit on the merit board for each trade for three boards, then you will be contacted as not selected in competition.  This could take two years.

As this is my final addition to my post in this thread, I am moving it to the end of the thread and editing my previous entries accordingly.

Recruiting Centre: Calgary
Regular/Reserve: Regular
Officer/NCM: DEO
Trade Choice 1: AERE
Trade Choice 2: CELE (Air)
Trade Choice 3: Sig O
Application Date: Dec 17, 2003
First Contact: Jan 9, 2004
Date for CFAT: March 2, 2004 - Passed
Medical completed: March 29 - No problems, file sent to Borden; May 26 - Med back. All good.
Interview completed: March 29 - Recommended as very strong candidate
PT Test completed: June 24
Position Offered: June 18 - AERE
Swearing-in Ceremony: Aug 25
Basic Training Begins: Sept 13

This will likely be a very slow process. Have to wait on verification of former service to show up at the CFRC.   I'll probably do the medical and interview soon, and the PT test after the VFS shows up.

Update, March 4: Well, I just booked my medical and interview for March 29. Seems that they have already obtained my VFS!     It was in the computer system. How about that!     So this pushes my expected timeline ahead by about 1 year!   Better get moving on preparation for the PT test...

Update, March 29: Completed my interview and medical today. Interview was first. Took close to 2 hours and 45 minutes.   Went well and was told I am a very competitive candidate.   10 minutes after my interview completed I did the medical, Parts I & II.   No issues.   File sent off to Borden.   Now I'm just waiting for my medical to be approved by the docs in Borden and I'll do the PT test.   Hopefully this will all be completed for the next selection board, which is supposedly later this month (April) or sometime in May. So, one interesting thing I learned today is that when I enrolled into the Reserves in '91 my vision was V1.   Now it's V3.   Glad it isn't worse.

Update, April 21: Learned today that my file has been sent to the selection boards. My medical still hasn't returned from Borden, but I guess that isn't such a huge deal since they are expecting it back very soon. The deadline for officer candidate files to get to Borden for the selection committees is April 26. I'm very pleased mine has been sent. I was also instructed not to book my PT test until I receive an offer for employment from the selection boards. The offer would be pending successfully passing the PT test.

Update, May 26: Queried my file manager and got a response that my medical came back and I was found suitable for my selected trades.   Was also told that some DEO boards have sat, but no offers are issued to anyone until all the boards are done their selections.

Update, June 9: Received a phone call from an LT at the CFRC indicating that my name is on the list to receive an offer package for Sig O.   Now, this occupation was my 3rd choice, but it doesn't bother me because my education and experience are actually directly applicable to this position (right down to working on comms systems for the Army) and not at all applicable to the other two positions, especially AERE.   The only disapointment I have whatsoever is that I wanted Air Force, but that's minor.   I'll update again when I get more info.

Update, June 18: Contacted by my recruiting officer and offered AERE.   This is a change from my update on June 9, but I'm not complaining.   I was told a few particulars, asked a few other particulars, and was given 14 days to accept the offer.   I will accept it on Monday (June 21).   The offer is conditional on me passing the PT and I am supposed to make an attempt at it ASAP.   So, one last hurdle.   I'm on cloud 9 right now.   What a trip!

Update, June 24: Passed PT today, nothing is left outstanding.   Here's how I did on the PT, in the order they were completed:
  • Step Test - Needed a VO2 of at least 39, got 42.2 -- Did 3 stages
  • Pushups - 27
  • Situps - 25
  • Grip - 106 (left 51, right 55)

Update, August 9: A few weeks ago my swearing-in ceremony was changed from Sept 1 to Aug 25.   Just means I'll officially be a member of the CF that much sooner.   ;D

Update, August 25: My swearing-in ceremony was today.   My wife was there for it and seemed to get a better understanding of things just from that little session.   6 new DEO candidates (including myself) were sworn in today.
               - 2 Engineer (Army)
               - 1 Systems Engineer (Navy)
               - 1 Aerospace Engineer (Air Force, that would be me!)
               - 1 Military Police Officer (Army, the only female)
               - 1 Infantry (Army, obviously)
Not sure of everyones' ages.   Two were 25, one was 34 (me again!) and the other three looked to be mid- to late-20's.   An Air Force captain did the swearing-in.   He started out by just addressing everyone present and talking about the challenges that we were about to embark upon.   Hardships, rewards, the usual spiel.   It was a good speech and I think the family and friends present appreciated it.   They he swore everyone in, one at a time.   I went first (alphabetical, I think).   He just says a few words at a time and you repeat after him.   Then a little handshake (which he called our first CF test, the "grip test") with the certificate presentation as a photo op.  I took a pic of the Infantry guy, who was there by himself (had to travel a ways, I guess), doing his grip test. I'll give him a copy.   That was it.   Simple and straight forward.   Once our ceremony was done there were 6 OCdt Pilots that showed up for a meet and greet with us, as we'll all be on the same flight out of here.   The 6 pilots were all sworn in on March 29th in order to make the fiscal year.   They've all been working on OJT at the CFRC for the past couple of months and apparently have really been put through the paces by the various CF pers in Calgary.   Three of the pilots were CEOTP intake, with the other three DEO.   One of the CEOTP pilots is female.

All in all, pleased as punch to offically be a member of the CF!      :cdn:     :salute:

Wow. That's quite the mix. I'm curious what mix I'll get if and when I get sworn in. I'm still waiting for my VFS. You were lucky to get yours so fast.


See you around the hangar sometime.  8)
