Could you give a timeline on the order everything was completed for you? Rough dates and order for the stages in the selection process. Thanks!

For me initially I applied in 2015, and the job poster went out sometime in April/March. By July I had written my exams and had my interview. I ran the PARE shortly after that and made it into the pool. A final determination was made in mid-November that I was not going to make the following troop in January as others were ahead of me in the queue from the previous pool. Fast forward to 2017, and I got a call in March asking if I was still interested, then things moved very fast, they booked my medical/psych evaluations, I ran the PARE again, and was confirmed to be attending July training in mid-June.

Hope this helps.

I passed the PARE! Got my email regarding getting appointments set up for medical, hearing/vision and psych! How about yourself?

Congrats! Good luck on the medical, hearing/vision and psych! I did one of these psych's before for my current job and it can be stressful.

I have my PARE next week which shouldn't be an issue. I was told the medical and psych will be scheduled after I submit my PARE results.

Waiting on my psych as well, I heard that it was quite the marathon from another hopeful at the physical I ran yesterday, there was about 4 of us running at once (Pacific region) so there may still be quite the pool of candidates left. So far so good though!

Hello all, I wrote my pysch, had my interview and ran the physical with Lepats all last week. I was the only DFO'er there. The instructor mentioned a lot of DFO'ers lately, I told him there is a bit of recruitment surge going on. Only thing left is a medical, which I have had contact about. Pacific region.
I have written the psych before being ex military... it is mind numbing and some question are a bit rediculous, also some chuckles though.

Anyone know if they're going to putting up more posting for DFO officers?
