You'd be surprised on the amount of people who get sent home by Week 2. Physical fitness is such an important aspect, every potential cadet needs to come in beyond the bare minimum of physical conditioning.

Honestly I'm just happy they are actually sending people away for not being prepared for something they signed up for. Bringing back pre-depot PAREs would go a long way to prepare people to be in the shape they need to be. Or at least serve as a reality check.

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 ?Pho-fo-Sho wrote: ↑Mon Jun 01, 2020 4:27 pm
Thanks for the support. I’m a firm believer in perseverance and learning from my past. Policing, and the sacrifices that come with it (and every other career where service before self is a fundamental pillar) isn’t for everyone. If I were to give up after attempt #1, #2 or #3, I would have not grown and honed my skills, or gained the life experience I now have which have turned me into the best version of myself and made me a competitive and strong candidate. I’m still waiting, but am also pursuing other opportunities. I just completed my blended interview with a municipal force today. Although I yearn for a position with the RCMP, in the end, if I can live a life of service before self for another agency and excel in community policing with any other agency I will be just as happy and fulfilled. I still have so much to learn and improve so I’m taking the time as a blessing in disguise.DanyD92 wrote: ↑Mon Jun 01, 2020 3:48 pmYes its Sig1992. He was deffered once or twice before and had come back stronger each time. Motivational to say the least when it comes to the process.Tornelco wrote: ↑Mon Jun 01, 2020 3:17 pmThere's a user here "Sig1992" that had veteran status and has been waiting for security clearance for 14 months or something.Jamesscobey wrote: ↑Sun May 31, 2020 9:28 pmSo I submitted my initial application on GC jobs a few days ago, my question is I'm about to hit the 3 year mark that qualifies me as a veteran and gives me preferential hiring, should I wait to submit my application till I hit the 3 year mark or can I keep my application submitted and just email the recruitment after I hit the 3 year mark, I'm still a month or two away so I figure may as well apply now right?

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 them to be reinserted.

Better that you start out, and stay, fit, plus your academic, and other studies, so when you are working the Pinkie Pumpkin Patch Party, you can talk, or deploy a CEW, or go toe-to-toe, when the stupidest "client" just will not settle-down simply by acknowledging your awesome presence as you do your walk-through.
Do not concern yourself with the minutiae of why of the requirements, especially before getting accepted to Depot - just meet, or beat, them once you get there. After you graduate, and you have actually done the work, then offer your thoughts to whomever the Commissioner is at the time.
No hi-5'ing, or congratulating, me regarding this comment, nor quote it, or I nuke your post.
