So......anyone know if showing up for Stage 3 without your Stage 2 completed in full is a big no no??? I only ask because I am in the Grande Cache only competition...but was offered the opportunity to do my Stage 3 in Ontario (where I live)....because of that I had only 10 days (2 days in now so 8 days remaining) to complete Stage 2 compared to the typical 21 days.

Not complaining...so far I am getting through it at a pretty good clip (lots of bearin' down and gettin' at it!!)....but, I'm just curious if I am still trying to complete the assignments minutes before Stage 3 begins...am I screwed? Or am I just slightly behind and can compensate?

Don't get me wrong...I plan on getting it all done with time to spare....partially so I can come on here and gloat that I completed Stage 2 in 9.358934 days. But....the thought of not having it 100% complete by the time I arrive for Stage 3 is always in the back of my mind.

The question really is....is it better to rush through a few things and "be complete"? or is it better to be correct and have a couple of missing items?

Again....I plan on making this thing my beeatch and completing the whole thing in record time and with everything being absolutely correct........but, everyone always wants to know "What happens if....". I guess I am no different.

I should add....that I realize it won't be greeted with cheers...and I am basically only asking as a form of insurance, or a 'What If....", if the response is "It won't screw you over" I still don't plan on showing up with it incomplete.....I just want to know what the 'worst case scenario' would be. Thanks.

We were not given 21days to complete Stage 2 in my CTP, we got our binders the day we did our stage 1 exam and two weeks later we started in class stage 3. So that gave us 13 days to complete it. Everyone in my ctp finished, and the instructors did check over our work to make sure it was all complete. Not sure if 21days is the norm or not for stage 2, but from my experience it is doable in the time period they give you etc.

Good luck!

I had less than 2 weeks. One guy drove from Ontario to BC for core and did the entire thing in 1 (long) day - just get it done

Sure... if you're a PW you'll get that WCT when everyone else is on the range having a blast... literally.

Just a thought, maybe you should change your signature to PW instead of CX-2... since it's kind of a red herring. No one applies straight into a CX-2 classifications if they were going the CO route.

Slo... yes, you need to have it done. I had to do my stage 1 and stage 2 in three weeks, you will be fine, just buckle down and get it done. Good luck at CTP! It is a lot of fun and you will make great friends, enjoy it. :drinking:
