Thanks for the info! I was wondering if maybe that made a difference in the speed of the waiting game.

For CX or PW?

Do the CXs and PWs go to core together and do same classes? With the difference beginning with the on the job training?
Yes. Generally, the CX/PW recruits train together. The difference comes in with regards to firearms training. As there are no firearms in female institutions, the staff do not receive that training. While the CX recruits are on the range, the PW recruits take Women Centered Training. There are some small other differences, (ie different strikes in baton training) but otherwise it's the exact same course. That, and they graduate with a higher rank and a bigger paycheck.

Kingston is about to resume training. Recruits are on site and almost done isolating.

Congratulations!
Will you be training through Christmas? I had assumed that new intakes were finished for 2020 and would resume in January
All the best,
Mike

Do you expect this will be the last group until after Christmas due to holidays? Is this a new group of recruits or still the ones from before COVID finishing up? I tried emailing Ontario Recruitment to see if I could get an updates on where I was because it will be a year since my psych and test in the next few months and wasn’t sure the regulations with this due to COVID, but unfortunately they didn’t reply, but I’m sure they are very busy and getting lots of emails.

All CX’s who did CTP3 and passed, what would you recommend to ensure success and what are things to watch for while there?

Also, what things will I need to pack and take to CTP3?

Off topic, I’m super excited, can’t stop picturing training and going 10000% in. Even been having dreams at the range using the C8 Carbine. Been listening to Eminem Till I Collapse non-stop, I know no matter I will get through this, might have to call ERT to stop me, jokes, but still have nerves, which is normal.

Any other tips please PM or post, I mean any advice, send away. I take it with an open mind and humble approach.

CTP-2

Postby AdaptOvercome » Sun Oct 04, 2020 11:18 am

For those that already complete CTP-2 material, how long did it take? I like pre-organization and I’m looking for an estimate on how long it takes to complete.

Thank you.

You can complete CTP2 a day before CTP3 if you want to.

The first few weeks of CTP3 is pretty much going through your CTP2 answers.. Aside from the Law & Policy exam on the first week.
It took me a few weeks, I know some CX that did it in a few days. All depends on how much time you devote to it.

No offers but I sent an email to recruiting on Thursday to let them know that I completed my First Aid, then they asked if I’d be interested in being considered for the prairie region.

Hi, I submitted my application recently and realized that there was no specific section for reference info. Does anyone know if I was supposed to include that in my resume? or will they follow up with my application and ask me to provide them at a later stage?

Thank you for any help!
