Wtf rcmp hiring....???

Won't it just be easier to disband and give the existing resources over to prov, regional and muni?

Interesting recruiting "strategy". I wonder how successful this new approach will be compared to all the other ones.

I have no place to question the decisions that went into this, but can any current or past members shed some light on why the RMSI and PARE were removed? Are the RCMP not keeping up with attrition?

The way I'm looking at it (optimist) is that RCMP is trusting their depot trainers to bring anyone arriving up to service standard.

Still... I'm concered to know someone could be arriving for training with a potential 10+ minute PARE time -or- lacking the competencies that would be tested in an RMSI.

Obviously I have no inside scoop, but how I read the article, it sounds like they're ditching the PARE as part of the initial application. Once you're through the the interview and background, then you have to submit a PARE certificate. I could be wrong, but that's how I'm reading it.

Edit: Just read the RCMP website and I was wrong ... you don't run the PARE until you arrive at DEPOT ... that's putting a lot of faith in applicants ...

Wow, this makes sense. Pass fatty (sorry to not be PC) through and spend all the time and money on his application not to mention turning down others only to find out he cant pass the PARE and flunks out. What a waste of money. Unless of course they give pity passes on the PARE once they make it that far. Way back when I was in CAF basic they were just starting this mercy pass thing. "Oh this person is one we really want (for whatever box checked in the application that looked good) so who cares if they fall just a bit short, can't do enough chin ups? Its ok, you pass. Can't finish the 10 mile forced march after 5 miles? Its ok, you pass." Welcome to the millennials coming of age and bringing their "everyone's a winner philosophy" with them.

Yup, who'll be the winner that gets the out of shape moron as a partner?

As far as the Testing exemption. As much as I'd gladly take the exemption who is the wonder brain that decided if you went to University you obviously have the aptitude to be a cop? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Coming from CBSA where we've been moving toward RCMP hiring practices for the past several years - the world has just been turned upside down.

I feel bad for all those who worked hard to get the job, then reading this.

So, I no longer have to run the PARE until Depot and as a recent university graduate I don't have to write the RPAB and I don't have to do the RMSI? I don't know what is going on at RCMP HQ, so I can't comment or speculate. But having said that, why?

As was previously mentioned, at least they're keeping the integrity/lifestyle portion and the polygraph. I knew the RCMP were fairly shorthanded, but I didn't know they were short enough that HQ was willing to cut out a couple of requirements.

Guess that explains why a person I know hasn't been required to do the PARE, yet has basically just finished the final steps of her application.

Well hmm... :|

Edit: just read the website, didn't they also require applicants to be clean of any criminal activity both detected and undetected for minimum 3-5 years? I ask because it only says 1 year.

Classic RCMP. If they hadn't turned down so many solid applicants for travesty deferrals, I'm sure they wouldn't be having this problem to this extent. Good job. :ponder: :thumbsup: :roll:

Why make the pare mandatory to pass at all. Half the members on the street can't run it.

If you're going to make cadets pass it might as well make all members pass it yearly. It's not hard.
