Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hey Wingman19, I see you recently did your medical. Would you be able to elaborate on what the medical consisted of and how long it took? I have a 5 hour drive to get to Edmonton to do mine, trying to figure out if I can get medical and psych done in the same day. Medical consists of bloodwork, the...

Assuming applicant is currently in security clearance for example, and clearance comes back successful, but applicant suffers a torn ACL and requires surgery/rehab. Is the applicant forced...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

So when I went to Depot, I was not a runner. I was (and am) a strength athlete, competed nationally for my sport. Out squatted, out deadlift the base. Closest one to me in bench was a full plate behind. I was holding my own for pull ups despite being 90lbs heavier than average in my Troop. Running,...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Is the reason why you want to posted at a certain detachment considered? Or, is that a non-factor and only RCMP Operational needs are considered. Let's say there was an opening in fort mac and not a lot of my troop mates put that down as a destination. My sister and her family reside in fort mac so ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hello all!

I am entering the final lap of my application process (waiting for medical/security clearance). Seeing that security can be a wait, I just wanted to know if there is anything else other than fitness one can improve on before arriving at depot?

Thanks!

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

It depends on the totality of the situation. Sometimes it's 6 months (the standard deferral length) and sometimes it's longer due to extenuating circumstances like the type of injury. Most often than not, they're very understanding about the issue so it wouldn't be much of a hassle of you decide to...

How much do you clear out from $525 ? If you don't mind me asking.
The pay is biweekly, so instead of receiving $1050, you will get $882.
Don’t forget the $0.47!
That's not bad at all, comes out to $1,911 a month. If you budget correctly you should leave depot with some savings.

What do applicants usually wear for medical and psychological exams?

The email I got didn't specify a dress code.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

To current cadets or members, do you get scheduled time for the gym or can you can go whenever you have free time? Are the weights comparable to an actual gym? (squat rack, bench press, etc). Also, as it pertains to the gym, can you use it to play basketball when it's not being used for drills or ot...
