Guys just a quick question, Its been more then 2 weeks after my interview and I haven't heard anything from them, is it a bad sign ? Well my interview went well anyways. I read that people are getting results back in few days.

Thanks in advance for reply guys.

Honestly, the 'wait' varies applicant to applicant... I did my interview in January & waited about one week to receive the email stating that I've passed the interview, and haven't heard anything back since. I can't remember exactly what they said, but if I'm correct following the interview they said it could take several weeks to hear back, I'd say be patient you'll do fine. Always assume no news is good news!

Good Luck!

Yep - the update helps. I was wondering if there was perhaps a delay or backlog of tests to be completed.

Oh well guess this will be on the back burner for the summer. Better to have some news than no news.

Huh?

So you didn’t end up going two years ago?

I’m confused.

Yeah I agree King, PhiDelt is from my era from a couple of years ago, I thought he went to Rigaud in March 2017. Maybe he deferred ?

i received an email about submitting my PARE results (which I have already done) because they're scheduling for the next intake. Did anyone else receive this email? Does this indicate I could possibly be invited to summer intake?

Hello,

Just wondering what a general day's training looks like, and what restrictions are placed on cadets during the evenings and work hours.

Second question, how often does PT come up in the week? I understand there's PT during the training day but is it everyday of each week? Designated days? Or are they leaving it up to us to get it in after the training day? Either way is fine by me, just curious if anyone knows.

I do not know for sure, I’m sure someone on this forum can answer this question a bit better, but I would say there is a good chance for a summer invitation. The email telling you that they’re scheduling for the next intake is a good indication in my opinion, otherwise, they wouldn’t bother adding the “scheduling for the next intake” part on the email.

May I ask how your timeline is looking like? Are you done with every step including security interview?

Generally speaking:
-Monday to Friday. Evenings & Weekends free.
-PT 3 days per week (run by trainers)
-in addition you can workout on your own time when fitness facility is open

Hope that helps😊

Well my timeline is a bit different than normal posting.

I was an SBSO, therefore we did security/medicals before our summer employment. I applied to the september posting for full time.

@cardken

I also received the same email in February 2019, ( PARE has since been re certified .)

I have everything completed and attained my security clearance in Feb 2019 as well.

So I would imagine it’s quite likely you could be scheduled for either the June July or August intake , especially because you already have the SBSO background!

Goodluck !!!
