Currently at the reference stage. One of my references was successfully contacted and interviewed about me, but my other reference states that he had a phone appointment booked with recruitment and did not receive a call.

I emailed prairie recruitment yesterday when I found this out as that is who I have been dealing with throughout the process and have not heard anything back yet. I’ve thought about emailing the GEN-NHQ Recruitment email but I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes or seem impatient so I’ve decided not to do that.

Am I worrying about nothing here or is it not normal that they haven’t reached out to my final reference yet to reschedule their over the phone reference check? I’m thinking it’s possible my reference did not answer his phone when they called but I’d like to get my last reference check done ASAP

How did/are people finding stage 1? It’s a lot of hours and I’m wondering how detailed my notes should be for the exam?

Thanks
I found the final test questions to be slightly less challenging that the ones throughout the course. They're not trying to set you up for failure, there's no trickery. I would say to pay attention to what you're being tested on throughout the course.

It's not timed.. Just don't close the window and do not idle for 60 minutes. ;)

Mine were sent emails with information to fill out and send back. It was quite an undertaking. They did do a phone interview with one of mine I believe and it was a similar situation. My reference asked for their number to call them I believe. It’s not always the most convenient times for those doing references, missed communication does occur.
Recruitment will likely get back to you as soon as they possibly can.
This process is a long one.

I've got an inch a half guard rail nut on a length of 550 cord. it's not whiz-bang tactical, but one smack in the grape and it's colouring books for Christmas.

This is very sad to hear. I know exactly what I’ve signed up for and hope to make a difference when it comes to officer mental health initiatives.

There is no shame in seeking help. We all walk similar roads. Watch out for eachother. We know the signs, some are much more silent.

Sending condolences.

This is an intense video. The people are real, the incidents are real, PTSD is real.

That is an important video to watch. They showed it to us in CTP 3. It's imperative everyone who is thinking about CSC to watch this and especially those who are in the process.

How long after submitting the security clearance questionnaire do they call? Do they call every one or only case by case.

Can anyone who has gone through CTP 3 in PEI give any insight into what accommodations are like in Summerside?

Hey DK94, I got a follow up security screening interview last week and it was just under 15 minutes. I can't divulge what they'll ask as that's something that varies between person to person but it is usually to seek more information or clarification from the answers you provided on the questionnaire. Speaking of which, anyone here know if we get a confirmation for passing the psyc or security clearances? Or you just don't hear anything? Thanks guys!

Well done NC!!
