I just looked into it.. have you? Might want to start soon.. the auto-bio has to be 4-6 pages![/quote]

Guess the first assignment is an auto-bio and it's actually due before the first day of online training ! Hope you guys have some free time this weekend![/quote]

Not sure if I am missing something... but where does it say it has to be 4-6 pages?

Well at least someone got an invite today, that's good news :)
I was told I might be kicked to 8B after the online training because of my PARE, so we'll see. I could even have to wait until the next intake, but I hope it doesn't come to that!

For those who got their invite for the OITP, can someone confirm if we need to buy a pair of boots and a pair of shoes or if we only need to buy a pair of boots.
It seems to me like they are talking about a pair of boots and a pair of security shoes. Maybe I'm reading it wrong and they are the same thing, so I just want to make sure.

Thanks

Pretty sure it's just boots, csa approved, no side zips.

The only thing it really says about shoes is that you need a separate pair of runners dedicated just to CDT training, so bring an extra pair for the gym. It would be hard to purchase 6" shoes for Rigaud, but if you find some that meet the requirements it states to bring approved boots OR shoes.
