    CFAT Rewrite

    This is the third time you have asked this question. If your CFAT is high enough for your trade then there is no need to rewrite it. If it does not meet the cutoff for your trade, then you either need to choose a new trade or rewrite it, keeping in mind if you score lower this time that's your...

    That is something only you can decide, but you need to consider: -Is your CFAT score high enough for your desired trade? -is there a chance that by rewriting the CFAT you drop below the cutoff for your trade? -is the part you need to improve on something for which you can study? Vocabulary and...

    Cfat test

    You only get 3 tries. period. Full Stop. And only your most recent score counts, so if the new score is lower than the previous one, that's the one that counts. So make sure you study for your next try.

    Public Service Health Care Plan PSHCP [Merged]

    The workaround a lot of spouses have found for the online claims is the member creates an account, and gives the spouse the login and password. Then the spouse can submit all the claims whether the member is home or away. The onus is on the spouse to ensure the member is aware of all the claims...

    A "Why" Dress Thread split from OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    It was an early January snowshoe ruck march, one of those 4AM recall things that Pet used to do too many of under the old Bde Commander. Rumour has it when the troops showed up with missing kit someone said let's go for a ruck march and show them why they need all their kit. But the issue was...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    My husband got told no appts available in our town, and when he volunteered to travel to where my parents live (still same province) they said no, your OHIP card says this address. you cannot go to another town to get your vaccine. Super frustrating.

    BMOQ - Vimy Camp experience

    I did BMQ-L in ValCartier. While not the same thing, my course was also 5 weeks of high heat and high humidity. We were CB'd the whole time, but could walk to the base (from the training area shacks, maybe 3-4km) and go to Canex. You should get some time in the evenings to use your cell phone...

    ROTP at 23

    Only if your desired trade specifically needs an engineering degree and will not accept your physics degree. Your age does not really factor in, other than you need to be young enough to complete your initial contract before reaching mandatory retirement age.

    CFLRS with social/physical distancing

    Are you sure they did not get their boots at their previous base? Are you sure they are hard Air Force  and not a purple trade whose element happens to be Air Force and they got them because of operational requirements? Maybe since they are staff they have been in for several years and have...

    Moi je voulais attendre car mon mari était muté a l'autre bout du pays et il fallait quelqu'un pour prendre soins des enfants. Cela a prit 6 mois avant de recevoir un deuxième offre. J'ai refait mon entrevue et j'ai fait une mise a jour sur Mon examen médical. Finir ton éducation est quand même...

Ils m'ont dit qu'ils remettaient mon application dans la pile...

    Help pmq needed

    Unfortunately once you are at your new base with an address you go to the bottom of the list for PMQ priority. Unfortunately many bases are short on PMQs due to high prices of housing in many communities. Could the cops help, if the drugs are illegal? Or the landlord?

    Atopic Dermatitis in CAF

    The answer is "it depends". Your best bet is to go to the recruiting centre, have your medical, and let the RMO make his decision.

    Preparing myself for disappointment

    This may sound harsh but you do realize you are not the only medical the RMO is reviewing, right? They are one person (I've been told there is one RMO per region) and they have final say on all the medicals. They also have to review all the appeals. It is a big decision to make for each person...

    BMQ Reserves 2018 - present

    Reg F BMQ is for Reg F. Some air reservists do it but army and navy reservists have their own BMQ. The navy has a summer BMQ option if you want a full time experience. It won't be the same as Reg F but likely a closer experience than weekend BMQ. However if your goal is to push yourself and...
