My spouse grad was in Jan when he went to depot and he had vacation that summer so I would say for sure.

I'd say it's too early to know. It depends on where he gets posted and whether his detachment will grant him the vacation time he requests. It could depend on how they're staffed and if others are on leave for various reasons, and how much time and when he's asking to have off (it's nice when getting a block off works out- since he'd probably be working 4 on 4 off, getting a block off means having 12 days off). I don't think it's really unlikely, but you just can't know yet.

Congrats to him on getting a troop date :)

What zycil27 has said has been my experience as well. You will likely be unable to take time off during the field coaching program - the first six months of your posting, but if you had a very important day you couldn't miss his supervisor might make an exception. Seeing as its almost a year from when he graduates it shouldn't be a problem to have time off for a wedding but again the only person that could give a definitive answer would be his supervisor at post.

Hey my fiancé is in troop 18 just left end of October.
We live in BC lower mainland and do own a house. However we do know we could be moving anywhere in Canada and will adjust to it. We are hoping to stay here but we know that doesn't always happen.
I just wanted to say I have read all the comments and got a lot of my questions answered!
Good Luck to everyone! :)

My hubby just got "the call" this morning - troop 21! It's very bittersweet, so proud and excited for him but also sad he will be going away in just a couple of days. I think it will be hard to explain it all to my toddler, but for now he thinks it's cool that daddy is going to policeman school :)

Awesome! Not much time to get things together! My man is still waiting on a call, they phoned him this week and asked how much notice he will need- two weeks in order to put in notice at work of course. She said he should know quite soon though, we are hoping for a Jan date!

My fiancé found out only 1 week prior when he was leaving, and didn't have another option. Anything could happen just make sure your ready :)
The faster he leaves the faster he comes home!!!

Hi all, first time login. I wanted to say reading through all the notes here and other RCMP forums I have received a lot of answers to a lot of questions. My husband has been going through the process for 2 1/2 years and he has been in the FR/SC stage for 6 weeks now, then last week got a call about his availability to leave for depot ... so could be less than a week's notice. We are more than ready and he can't wait to get the call. Our spouses/partners work so hard to get to this final stage I just want to pass all the best on to everyone. It is a hard process on them as well as the families. As long as we are behind them, they can do anything. So here's to all the other halves to keep the home fires burning while they put everything they have into graduating!

Congratulations!! You both must be beaming! That is so cute policeman school. If you can tell him stories of what daddy's daily adventures would be, he will be with him and time will go quickly. Good luck to you both!! My husband is in FR/SC for six weeks now so hoping the call soon!!

Hi mspouse, my boyfriend is in troop 18 as well! We're also from the lower mainland and hoping to be posted back home. I hear a lot of postings are going to Alberta, but I guess you never know - Just have to keep our fingers crossed. Good luck to you and your fiancé! :)

And thanks to everyone on the forum, I've had a lot of questions answered too!

We got email from recruiting officer last night that hubby has now passed Final Review (in the 6th week) but still waiting on Security Clearance and Medical Clearance. Hope to hear something soon as it would be a nice xmas present for him. :D

Any wives/spouses get posting details yet?? I am curious and hoping everyone is having good luck with locations etc.

What an exciting ride this is on so many levels, so proud of the 'other halves' and all of their determination in the process!!!
