called the Recruiting in Calgary,,,got a phone number of the recruiters at the 14th MP DIV, got a callback about 30 min later, basically told them my background and education, they invited me to come in the same day and have a chat with them...i did...asked questions, shook hands, got a quick review of what to expect...beware that they are recruiters so do some research prior or after you speak with them on the position you are applying for...my biggest dilemma is joining as an Officer or NCM...since id like to develop my leadership abilities i chose Officer...plus if I do enjoy it-Ill do RegForces
in a nutshell-you need to call around for the 14th MP DIV number since they are not listed on the website

^ did you already write the CFAT ?
From what I know the CFAT score is worth 60% of your overall score. The other
40% is your experience/education , medical and interview.
This is something new that was implemented this year.

You can be a doctor with 10 years of experience, and if you don't meet the CFAT score for med tech, you dont get in.
It's silly but it is what it is.

Brush up on your grade 10 /11 math and English.
The kids out of high school will have an edge over those who havn't seen the material in decades.

Best of luck.

Nobody knows the score for any of the trades.
If the recruiter is nice enough they'll tell you your score, and how you faired out.
If you pass/qualify then they won't tell you your mark.
You qualified and that's all there is to know.
Usually the recruiters don't give out your marks.

You have 3 tries at the test
If you didn't pass it /qualify ,then they'll give you 2 options.
1- they'll offer you other trades that you qualify in
2- you may request a second re write of the CFAT in 3 months time


For a 3rd and final chance at a re write you must, show proof of an upgrade of education (plus wait 3 months for a re write)
If you scored low in the math portion then you must retake a high school math course , or a course that's a higher math than what you already have.
For example ,if you have a bachelors in math you must take another university level math course.
If the highest math you've done is high school,then you can take a higher level high school math course.

Same conditions apply for the English portion of the test.
Not sure what happens if you fail the spacial. It's something that isn't given a course and it's nothing you can study for.

That said make sure you pass it the first time.
If not the second time! In a side note,
Make sure you don't wait a year to re write it, because chances are you'll forget the questions.

Even if you pass everything (CFAT, medical and interview) and get meritt listed, you are not guaranteed anything!
Things change in the CF from time to time and you may have to redo everything from scratch.

There are free online tests and there are books on amazon that help.
Don't be fooled by the sample test as it's easy compared to the actual test.

If you havnt seen high school math in decades (or were never strong in math)
I highly suggest getting tutored or getting a grade 10/11 math book.
Be overly prepared and the test shouldn't be a problem.
Focus on scoring as high as you can.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Well said BC Blue - If its not important to the applicant to prepare for the test. Why should it be important for the recruiter? We are looking for people that are "Ready" - Competence, Character, and being Prepared are important - those who are tossing their application in for fun need not apply. Any position in the Military is important - The Military Police Branch is no different.

There are age restrictions - But recently we had a Retired Police Officer join. He went on to complete all of his training, topped his Leadership course a couple years later, and completed a tour in Afghanistan! His service was exemplary! His "seasoning" made him very successful - and because of his age and previous life experience he contributed significantly to the unit and the Military Police Branch.
