Sorry, just to clarify. you will be training CTP3 at the PAC regional training centre in Abbotsford??
Thought they were not running any more classes through the PAC regional centre and ALL were going through DEPOT...

That makes sense. The site in Chilliwack is called PRTC (Pacific Regional Training Centre). It's where the RCMP does a lot of their "upkeep training" and CBSA does firearms instruction there as well. Some CAF stuff goes on there as well, Have fun guys!!

I was also under the impression they were no longer running CTP in PAC Staff College.
Last time I talked to my old instructors from there they had gone back to their original institutions and were back as CX or whatever they were before going to the Staff College.

While I was on CTP we lost an instructor to the RCMP site to teach firearms training to RCMP.

Hey guys and girls,

Just a quick post to say hi as I decided to apply for CX-1 as well as the CBSA.

There are 500 pages to go through so I hope I can catch up! :)
