Hello,

Has anyone had to re-do CPR/First Aid while waiting for security clearance? Mine expires in early October and I was informed Friday by recruiting that troops are now being filled for September and October.

I am now currently waiting for security clearance, since there is no guarantee of a clearance or even a timeline for receiving one, I’m wondering if it’s advisable that I re-certify prior to receiving clearance or to wait for clearance before re-certifying.

Thank you!
Hi! I had to re-do my First Aid & CPR last week. I'm in the final stages but you have to have it before you get to depot as far as I understand. You can always ask your coordinator but I would suggest getting it renewed if your not in depot by the time it expires.

Can anyone comment or shed some light on what reasons someone is asked to go home from Depot? is it attitude, injuries, lack of effort? are there warnings or sitdowns to try and correct the behavior before hand?
Its a lot of stress to give up your occupation and take minimal pay for 6 months and curious as to how often things like this happen
Thanks

All the above. Focus on yourself, do what they tell you, mind your own business, and be yourself. You won’t have to worry about getting sent home.

I concur.
As far as frequency, the average is about 1 of 32.
The Force invests a lot into each Cadet, so its not willy-nilly about the puntings, but we will only put up with so much then its time to cut our losses.
Just don't be stupid.
FYI, edited to eliminate many errors made while on my phone...sober, I might add!

There are 1000 reasons you can be sent home. If thinking about it before even being accepted to Depot is causing you too much stress than I can guarantee this job will be too much for you.

What are recruitment opinions on applicants that have any kind of competitive combat sport experience? I have been told different things from different people; Individuals who have boxed in the past or grapple as a hobby may be exceptionally aggressive and the wrong temperament for a career in law enforcement. I have also been told that it is good experience that can be related to proper use of force if the situation warrants it. Is this something I should emphasize during my recruitment process?
Thanks!
Honestly, are you legit?

I fight. I box. I grapple. These are skills that I brought with me and am happy to have when I work. Never once have I been the "wrong temperament" for a career in LE.

If you do not know how to fight then I can guarantee you will get your ass kicked as a GD Cop.

I am 50/50 on whether you are a troll. Please prove me wrong.

Good evening everyone,

Long time observer, first time poster. I would like to thank everything who contributes their time to participate in this forum. Former members, current members, future members, depot web and all others, your time is appreciated.

I have been selected for Troop 19 beginning Sept 9th. My timeline (for curiosity, as from my observations it varies greatly) began with my application in May 2018 and my Troop offer May 2019.

This forum has been very helpful in answering my questions, I have found an abundance of information just through doing some scrolling.

I am unable to find a direct answer relating to pension buyback. From my understanding, cadets are not considered employees and become RM’s at the completion of Depot if they are offered a posting. Is the time expended as a cadet eligible to a pension “buyback” once enrolled as an RM?

Thank you for your time.

Congratulations, I’m also in Troop 19, see you there 👍🏻

How long did it take everyone to hear back after the Right Fight Interview? Just had mine earlier today and am super anxious about the results

It’s a new addition to the selection process. It’s pretty much the RMSI but over the phone. It takes place after your RMAQ phone call

Well, I guess the "RCMP Hiring Craze" that has been happening for the past 3-4 years is coming to an end seeing as they have reintroduced the interview back into the process, I wonder how hard it is or what it even is. I'm curious about how long until applicants will be required to complete the PARE at a certain time as a part of the hiring process like back in the day!

Shame I couldn't get on board beforehand but life goes on! It'll be interesting to see the direction of the RCMP in the next few years!

It is an interview, and just part of the scrutiny Cadets face every moment that they are at Depot until they become a Constable, then what they will face during their Field Training, plus what our members face every day.

While I did not have to do PARE until MANY years after completing Basic Recruit Training, I certainly understood the rationale for demanding of our applicants, given that the Force found a direct correlation between pre-Depot PARE performance and how well Cadets performed. I thought it was a bad idea to drop the requirement, so if if US being re-instituted, I am glad.

Given your comments, maybe you better be EXTRA prepared and ready, or else you are not going to make it to, let alone graduate from, Depot.
