Good morning everyone!

Hope all is well. I just got word from my recruiter that they are awaiting my secuirty clearance.

I had a question/situation and wanted to maybe get some insight and advice from you all.

Currently my girlfriend and I are wanting to go on vacation with each other for about 2-3 weeks maybe our last before I head for Depot. As I stated above I’m kind of at the end of the process waiting on SC. Im aware that everyone’s timeline is different and I’ve seen posts of individuals who state to just live your life until the Golden Call.

I’m assuming I should definitely make my recruiter aware if I want to travel and maybe get cancellation with all my accommodations.

Just looking to see if anyone was in a similar situation and had some input! Thanks everyone and have great week!
If you were just informed that you are in security you probably have a long wait still. Maybe not, but more than likely a long wait. Everyone's timeline is different so it could be a couple weeks to a year for this part. Just saying.
Echoing what was previously said. Do inform your recruiter of your travel and do get cancellation insurance, it's worth every dollar.

A little anecdote, I was in the process for a Telecommunications Operator job, got the email that I was selected and training was to begin on the Monday. It was the Friday prior and I was in an airport on a layover in transit to my travel destination for 3 weeks. Needless to say, I didn't turn back and continued on my trip and later was offered a spot in the training program.

I personally would travel instead of waiting around for the what if's.

Take the vacation and advise your coordinator. You can be in security for a while. There is a recruit at depot currently who had their security clearance take 18 months.

If anyone can elaborate on this, would appreciate it.

Once you graduate and given your posting. 1) How much time are you given to find a place to rent. Is moving cost covered. Is there any financial incentives towards your rent for the first year. From what I've read, you are sometimes given a couple days or even the next day when you start your field training.

2) Hypothetically, you are posted in BC, you buy a house in BC and you are forced to transfer to Ontario. Are you literally at the mercy of the RCMP if you are trying to raise a family. Is transferring voluntary.

Thanks.

1. Depends on your unit/CO. Coverage depends on what policy you fall under. HHG&E is mostly covered. You're probably going to want to start looking for a place before you leave depot. There's no HHT for initial postings unless you fall under regular member policy, which very few leaving depot do.

2. If you don't want to move, don't join up. Staffing will take personal circumstances and preference into account, but you go where they tell you. Or, you puss or and quit when you get a shitty posting - it is 2020 after all.

2. Misunderstood the question. I have no experience buying/selling real estate under RCMP policy

1) You get your post with 6 weeks left (may have changed, it was a 24 week program when I was there, its 26 now). You can start looking then, but know that you still haven't passed yet.

2) You get your post, its your responsibility to sell your house. If you take a loss, you may be reimburse for up to 30k. You are, however, on a timer to sell your house. Don't sell after a period and your transfer may be cancelled. In terms of being forced, you get a say in your second posting, you'll get offered stuff and its your choice to accept...more or less.

Thanks for the insight. Whats the duration of your first post before you have the opportunity for a transfer. Do the majority of RM's spend their careers in their second postings.

Long time lurker, first time poster.
Received the golden call the other day! I’ll be in troop 40 starting March 23rd. Took about 18 months, patience is a virtue. Anyone else in troop 40?

I'll try to answer this, the duration of your first post varies depending on where you are. If you are in a limited duration post it will have a set time you are there; generally 2-4 years. Other than that it depends on the division, and detachment you're posted to.
