I thought 39 was already there? Just didn’t make it to Friday?
Oh, pft. You're right. Haha. I hope I'll still be there when they come back.

Re: Any return to Depot update?

29-31 go back July 9th. No other troops have been given notice to return yet. I’m on troop 33 so should be in the next group. Gotta get all the way back to 39 before all troops sent home are back at depot. Then I believe troop 40 was coming the weekend we got shut down. Hope that kinda helps give y...

More than halfway done! At this point do you know which division you're going to?
We were about to find out which provinces were open in a few days, but we had to be sent home. We are hoping to find out if we can find out as we wait during our quarantine isolation.

That's good to hear Pho-fo-Sho, how many weeks had you completed before Depot was shut down?
Finished 14, heading into 15. Managed to get our Blues before TO Inspection (Which we also passed). We got 'Hell Week' out of the way, so it's going to be nice going back.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Emails have been sent to the other batch of troops (Including mine) to resume the CTP very soon - I hope the best for the rest of everyone who has applied and have been waiting. It will be a trickle as safety precaution needs to be taken first and foremost. I would say it will take sometime for Depo...

I’m just happy we actually get to talk about going back finally!
Oh my goodness. It is one of the cadets from the Sgt. Major's Pet Project Troop!

I am still very envious as you can tell, haha.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

[...] They are staying in private rooms with a bathroom, TV, workout equipment, a computer and Wi-Fi. Meals and snacks are brought to them. Facilitators are sharing training materials and they can leave their rooms for two 1-hour blocks each day to go running. They can't enter any of the other buil...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

what happens to them after being sent home ? Do they give them a chance to improve their fitness and then go back in ? Or they have to restart the whole process from the beginning ? They're given a 6 month deferral and then re-insertion if they so wish - I am unsure of how long will it take for the...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just thinking about the long, tiring situations too...not the easy dump and cuff but the ongoing fights. 1 minute already feels like 10. So I don't want someone backing me up that gets gassed after 2 mins. You'd be surprised on the amount of people who get sent home by Week 2. Physical fitness is s...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Thanks for your answer Shawshank. Totally make sens and I agree, that in such case, cardio is gold. But long endurance excercices ( 3km runs and above, marathons and half-marathons ) are no longer a good training strategies to improve cardio. Modern training and coaching focus on HIIT ( High Intens...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

You don't need to go that far back for old timey stories about Depot, there are plenty of members still working who had a drastically different experience than the current situation. I was just particularly interested in the "Pre-Charter" days. Some of my facilitators told me those were interesting...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

There were only 10-12 troops on base at a time during this past fiscal year, with an average of one starting each week. In the big hiring push between 2006ish-2008 they were starting an average of two troops a week, and they were doing it without a lot of the newer infrastructure on base having bee...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Depot (immediately prior to the shutdown) was not "full", Depot has the capacity to train more than the number of troops who were on base at the time. The troops that the RCMP was given budget allocation to train were being filled, but Depot could have trained more cadets if push came to shove. I w...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hey Van, Is there any more info you can provide on this; https://globalnews.ca/news/6981206/rcmp-provincial-policing-memo/ If more municipal forces are established that will likely reduce the number of recruits needed by the RCMP significantly. Could this affect applicants currently in the process ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

How did you guys know that you were a good fit for law enforcement? Where did you start? How did you prepare yourself for the process? To be honest, nobody thinks they are going to be a good fit for law enforcement in the beginning as there are a lot of uncertainties. Nobody wakes up one day and sa...
