Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

It's a waste of time and money for the RCMP if a cadet fails at Week 1 because of the PARE. People need to come to Depot prepared not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. That being said, everyone here is preaching to the choir on the fact that the PARE should have been kept during...

I stand by what I said. The process takes a year or more. You had time to get ready physically and should have an idea what to expect. Showing up with a 530 time is bloody ridiculous.
One person took almost 10 minutes to finish, that person is not with us anymore.

And I wholeheartedly agree.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

You’ve got to be shitting me that’s the time for the first one. Apologies, let me add to that so there will not be any miscommunication PARE 1 - 5:30 PARE 2 - 4:30 PARE 3- 4:00 At the end of the day, everyone needs to aim below 4 minutes. That being said, you are expected to improve on your PARE ti...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I feel for you guys that were there and sent back and I hope this all clears up soon so you can get back to it! What numbers are troops graduating with now? Are they losing quite a bit by the end? There should be a total of 16 troops when everyone gets back. They graduated 4 troops when I left - Th...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Can't you power walk the PARE? What is the benchmark for the first attempt? One person didn't even finish it, the other person failed by a few seconds. Just because you hear from either the RCMP / other people that they have lowered the physical standards does not mean they aren't going to send you...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

There's no rush. Being 15 weeks in and my only advice is to enjoy the time you have with you family. It sure takes a toll. And be fit! I lost 3 people in less than a month on failing physical benchmarks alone, and there was another troop that had 6 people that failed the PARE on the first week! (Obv...

Can anyone comment on the length of days at depot? Wake up time to when we are done training and have our personal time ?
"Working days" are from 800 - 1630 but you're waking up at 530 and you don't stop working after 1630. There is always something to do.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

No such thing as bad weather, only bad gear.

Still managed to run for 5km in -30 when I first arrived here. At least the humidity is super low.

Weather will be the least of your worries here, haha.

Except Ontario.
Someone got posted to Ontario, straight to Toronto.

Grapevine is saying that he was super specialized already.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I’m hopeful for K div. But I’ll just be happy to graduate and get posted honestly. Good to know my top 2 provinces seem to be the goto destinations. Do most people seem to be getting what they want or close enough at least? I have no idea. You get interviewed around half way into your training on w...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

But when you look at where people are getting posted every week, it is crazy. Crazy in what aspect: Completely randomly, very remote, or is there a pattern to it? I’m personally not too worried, just looking for insight on what you mean. At the end of the day I’ll happily go where they tell me to r...
