But I'm very grateful to have reached the steps I have and though I was delusional for awhile (spent all of August believing I would be doing my online training by now), I am over that false sense of hope and have settled down to wait some more! :P Good luck all!

A guy I was talking to mentioned that over the next while there are at least 2 ctp's in house, then in the new year 3 at some points. Not sure where he got his information, so it's not 100% legit.


I have a similar time line as boudz. Haven't heard a thing about the medical if I passed or not or when I will start. I know one other person who did the medical the same day as me and she hasn't heard anything either (Kingston, ON area).

I recently did my first aid / cpr level C with AED so I don't have to worry about it down the road.

Glad to hear there are more trainings starting. Hopefully I will hear about mine soon.

The only good thing is for me not starting yet is I am not going to miss my brother in laws wedding in Vegas now. ;) When I did my interview and medical I thought I would be starting soon after and we had already had our tripped booked. I was going to stay home for training while my husband went to Vegas without me for the wedding. I am glad I can still go in a couple weeks.

Pac Region
Applied April 2011
In house testing May 2011
Interview July 7, 2011
References checked 2 - 3 weeks after interview
Offer to CTP Aug 8th 2011
Medical booked for sept 15th, 2011
Stage 1 started Aug 22,2011
Stage 1 exam Sept 19,2011
Stage 2 started Sept 19,2011
Stage 3 scheduled to start Oct 3, 2011
OJT scheduled to start Nov 28, 2011

But as others have said it depends on the region and also who they offer CTP to etc. We were told there is another one from i think the prairie region starting Stage 1 when we start Stage 3 and they will be coming out to Pac region to complete the classroom portion etc but be employed in the Prairie region. But who knows thats just heresay too...just sit back and relax and wait for your email/calls oh and in the meantime SAVE $$. Good luck!!

Noted. Things seem to be fairly quiet lately on the application / interview / CTP front..... any applicants have recent news on their stage in the process? Any word in the Ontario region on new classes starting?


Interviewed in May11, June medical, confirmation of medical in July....I was notified 1 1/2 weeks ago and invited to online training for the beginning of this week, then Classroom training 2nd week of Nov in Kingston. Anyone else scheduled for this class?

I was offered Bowden (1st choice) since I live within 40 km. I had my interview august 19th. So just wait! It was approx. 10 days after they checked my references that I received the offer. So just wait a month! Best of luck.

I already have a house in Red Deer actually so I think I'll be staying put. It's only a 30 minute commute.

I will be at Bowden if all goes well. And I was thinking Red Deer as my place to live. Can you send me a PM, just want to know about the city other than what is on the official website. :)

Polish your boots and iron your shirt and pants. None of this steamer crap. Take pride in your uniform.

If we can't have PT or Drill in CTP, I would expect excellent dress and deportment at the very least.
