Hello everyone!

I'm new to the forums and I wasn't quite sure where to create this post; however, I'll attempt this in the general RCMP chit chat as I have aspirations in joining the RCMP one day. Okay, so first off I'm currently 24 years of age, have been working two years in house hotel security, volunteer with victim services, in school for a Bachelor's of Commerce - Accounting, and keep relatively fit. I was reading that most police agencies, including the RCMP, are interested in sustainability of employment and considerable commitment rather than jumping job from job. I've also been reading thoroughly as well on the forums and decided to see if anyone could potentially offer some insight on where I may improve overall considering I'm still lacking life experience. I would greatly appreciate any feedback; thank you!
You are more than qualified to apply. You are over-analyzing. I would highly recommend researching into the RCMP as it is a different experience compared to municipal policing. Once you finished your degree, apply if you feel you are ready. Life experience is subjective; your volunteering experience, your post secondary education, your employment all contribute to overall development.

I'd second in saying to browse around this forum and the other recruiting ones as well, they are full of information. That being said, definitely stay in school and finish your degree/program. It looks good and provides experience.

Did they mention anything about Depot Dates due to the corona after your clearance was done?

I'm on a similar timeline as you, and I am in the middle of my backround. I was accepted to another federal agency and was told the academy is postponed until this thing blows over. Kind of a blessing in disguise as RCMP is what I have wanted to do as a kid.

Look through the last 10 pages. There's a ton of info there about what people "know" regarding Depot reopening.

All anyone knows right now is that the situation is still active, ongoing and as such the fluidity calls for more of a week to week approach on these kind of decisions. That's all second hand info that I've received, but it's more or less in line with what others have expressed who are in the know.

For now, be patient and stay fit. That's all we can do right now.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the communities in Nova Scotia. Absolutely horrific events and I thank the regular members of the RCMP for putting their lives on the line and responding as well as they did.

Regarding the previous comment, I think its reasonable for someone to ask if anyone in recent contact with recruitment has heard any updates about training resuming in Regina considering the situation is fluid. It looks like the OPP is taking some things into consideration moving forward. Would anyone be able to comment if depot is looking at doing anything similar?
Thanks

Management is constantly reviewing the developing situation and trying to determine the best course of action in consultation with provincial and federal health authorities. While all options are on the table, the logistical differences between how OPC and Depot deliver their programs make it unlikely that delivering the CTP by online or distance education methods would be feasible.

But to answer your question, other than the fact that they would like to re-open as soon as practicable, there are no immediate plans to resume training.
Don't call it a comeback...

Here in Quebec they’re looking at every options to possibly be able to open in may. Last thing iv’e heard they wanted to start with only one troop (instead of the usual 3 troops) who had 2 weeks left of training.

Hey everyone, first time poster here!

Just curious: how long did your RFI interview last, approximately? I was told it would be 2-3hrs, but mine was closer to 1hr15mins. The call was 20 mins late because of something on the analysts end...but either way, I’m mildly concerned now.

I thought I was doing well, but the length is making me wonder...haha.

Just sit tight - It's going to be a long ride. There is no use in comparing timelines since everyone else will be different.

Mine was only an hour and 15 minutes too, so was my buddies and we both have troops. I don't think you should unduly stress until you get an email. Timeline's are different for everyone.
