Wrote the RPAB on Jan 9 at E division HQ. Ended up with a score of 329, with 4.41 on the RPAT portion. I haven't heard anything back yet but probably won't be much longer.

In contrast, I applied to a municipal force at the beginning of Dec and have had the following with them (all happened in January): POPAT, JIBC Assessment Centre, first interview, written test, and panel interview.

It's amazing how different the processes are, and how quick the municipal process can be.

very well done, dubzz24 !
if you call the recruiting team, they will tell you,
the waiting time for your SP is 6-8 weeks.
Mine was 1month +2days.

Patience if you want to choose RCMP...
Good luck !

How's everyone doing?

I ran a practice PARE at LEPAT yesterday, 3:31 with no penalties. Pretty decent but still room to improve. What are/were your times?

that's a good time with some room for improvement, you don't want to set the bar too high this early right :D . I had 3:30 but I touched the mat 3 times on the jump so 3:45.

I disagree, set the bar as high as you can. Do your best at every stage of the process that way any improvement you do see is true growth. Where is the integrity if you know you can do better but you don't?

True, but don't push yourself to the point of injury. And don't focus on one area to the detriment of another.

I agree with ya. Ran my PARE at 3:00, full out, held nothing back. Who would you hire, the guy that goes full out or the guy that holds back so he can show you an "improvement" later on? Obviously, don't push your body into more than it can handle and hurt yourself, but push yourself as far as you can go. That's just my two cents though.

Don't forget that the test isn't over once you finish the obstacle course. You also have to get your heart rate back down within a certain time frame (10 mins if I remember correctly) Slow is smooth - smooth is fast ('control')

What I meant was pace yourself, its a hard run and some definite risk for injury. We had a guy who did it in around 2:30 IIRC, I wasnt going to go flat out to try and match that by going full out.
Having never done a PARE before, I was unsure how I would perform, even though I tried to train for it. I paced myself and I was happy with the result and I was tired after, I needed every second of the small break you get before the carry.
Next time, I know what to expect and I will improve my time, and the time after that I will improve and so on.

I just got my call!
Although he said they are having trouble getting flights out of BC so if they can't get a decent flight I'm guaranteed for Troop 29 on March 10th.
