Postby KerO96 » Sun Jul 20, 2008 4:29 pm

I have looked many times and CANNOT find anywhere that offers this course... I hope someone can Help!

I have not heard of anyone having to provide defense tactics and handcuffing! Those are things that are taught in Riguad. I am from Prairie Region where are you from? Have you been asked for handcuffing certificates? If you havn't been asked for it I wouldn't worry about it.

I would imagine that "the control and defense tactics" is taught in Rigaud, and that successful completion is a requirement to getting hired on.

I have never heard anything about taking a course along those lines before getting hired. CDT is a part of POERT and just like every thing else in Riguad if you fail......

But yes I've done CDT. My understanding of it , is that because I'm CDT certified, I just have to participate like everyone else in CDT training at Rigaud, I won't have to do another pass/fail sim for CDT.


It was my understanding that if you're bridging you do the 7 week course without CDT and OPT.

I believe the 7 week program is history now. It was only intended to be used for the "rollover" terms.

I have a feeling there might be a few bridged students that are going to be mighty choked when they actually find out that it's 9 weeks.

They will send you for CDT training and it is mandatory you pass. Don't sweat it. They will tell you when/where to show up.

Since it was brought up, I'll throw my 2 cents in. If I had my way there would be no PBOs/Students on the frontlines. Maybe in the back doing clerical stuff, postal, or EDIs....but that's it.

But then I would be out of a fun job. Not to imply that I don't take my job seriously, I quite enjoy doing it and have every intention of doing it for a while.
