    Admin Officer

    If it hasn't been kept up, first thing to do is go into FORTRESS and make sure files are fully up to date - awards, qualifications, organizational groups (platoons / divisions / flights as well as optional groups), personal information (if you're experiencing issues, it can be good to re-run...

    Paintball is now a cadet approved activity but it comes with strict guidelines!

    Perhaps I can shed a little light on this. In Atlantic Region, it is an approved activity. The former Commanding Officer of Regional Cadet Support Unit (Atlantic), Cdr GL Reddy, issued a memorandum - Commanding Officer's Temporary Memorandum (COTM, for short) 06/12 - Cadet Unit Paintball...

    All things beardy-2005 to 2018 (merged)

    Maybe they're trying to promote change (of the address) for that right bubble on the PER?  >:D I sympathize completely with your frustration. As a Cl A CIC Officer, I don't have DWAN access, so I rely on CadetNet (often outdated) and public links to get this sort of information. IMO...

    Argo moving?

    There's been nothing about it on the RCSU (A) page (mind you, they can't currently update due to a server upgrade) and nothing on CadetNet either, and I feel that's something that would likely be passed on.

    Queen's Diamond Jubilee Super Thread

    Not quite. Army Cadet League of Canada Volunteer Service Medal, awarded by the Army Cadet League of Canada to people who volunteer for a minimum of 5 years with the army cadet program. Nevertheless, definitely shouldn't be there.

    Will switching one of my trade choices "reset" my application?

    Additionally, at least in some areas, you can't change CFRCs if you live in the same place. In Newfoundland, there are two CFRCs, each with their own areas (Bishop's Falls eastward is covered by St. John's, westward of that is covered by Corner Brook). When I initially applied I lived in St...

    Extra training/Career progression for CIC Officers

    Generally, no, we cannot do other courses. We are limited to work with the CCO without prior approval and good reasoning behind it. Para can be done by a CIC (Army) Officer if they are selected to work as the Escort Officer with the Para course - highly competitive position (also, the last...

    BFT for CIC Officers.

    Emphasis mine. I disagree with this wholeheartedly. As a CIC Officer, I am expected to lead my cadets. Physical fitness is one of the aims of the cadet program. How can I expect them to aim for high physical fitness if I won't do the same myself? Leadership by example is often important, and...

    What's the dumbest thing you heard said today?

    I was working at a fried chicken store based in a food court yesterday (whatever helps pay for university) and as we were closing we get a phone call. Caller: Do you do delivery? Me: No sir, we don't. We're also in a food court and we're closing for the day. Caller: Oh. Do you know which *our...

    Double Major Possibility?

    Be wary if you are going the ROTP/RETP route. From the RMC website: It is a degree offered only through the Division of Continuing Studies (DCS). Furthermore, there are no majors with the BMASc degree. It is a common 30-credit program with a 10-credit core and a minimum of 15 of the 30 credits...

    Have you been given your initial issue of DEUs yet? AFAIK, If you haven't, I don't think your Logistik account can start until you get fitted by supply and they submit your initial issue. Edit to add: when I got my initial issue, this is how it worked. I couldn't register before the fitting...

    So I went for my medical today

    I've had two enrolment medicals (one to enrol as a CIC Officer, one for my sub-component transfer to PRes MARS Officer), and neither of mine required a urine sample. I was approved for enrolment on both occasions, and am currently waiting on my transfer to be processed. I also have friends who...
