makes a huge difference. CSC will take people willing to go where they need CX first..

Hey guys, put my application in on January 7th, closing date is the 15th, I know it probably varies but I’m just curious as to what kind of timeframe you all went though before hearing back, getting interviewed and tested etc.

I appreciate the response and good luck to everyone else applying!

Highly likely, as there is a "operational needs" factor in consideration.

Hey everyone, just another quick question.

I did a copat for bc corrections as part of a different application process, before I decided to go federal.

Is the copat still not a thing for the federal side or will my results carry over?

Sorry for the dumb questions, excited and nervous to get this process started!

I'd say you should get that first aid cert asap. You don't want to be at the formal dinner party wearing jeans.
They might not even continue with your application til it's submitted. But I don't know, I must hold valid first aid at all times, applying in law enforcement or for SAR.

Hi, In the past I know that as part of the CSC training jujitsu defensive moves were taught. Are they still teaching that or is the physical defence component different now?

Some people on my core did their certificate on the weekends during core.
