Registration Package for Online Learning

Postby Windy_city86 » Fri Apr 09, 2021 4:41 pm

Hey guys,

CSRU just sent out e-mails for detailed steps for the online portion of training for those starting on April 26th.

Stupid question for those whom attended COTA. I understand we are getting the Polo shirts for training but for the fitness part of training white crew neck shirts. Can we just take a sharpie to the back of our white tees or this something that should be from a printing press.

Anybody with any questions or issues with the enrollment please ask away. I think I have every single internet browser on my computer now.

No for the shirt . The details we were given are below
White crew neck T-shirt with surname printed in 4 inch (black), block letters (long surnames may require smaller letter sizes) on the front. This should be a screen print, not Velcro or stick on letters.

I am headed to COTA for the last 4 weeks of training on Monday. Good luck!

I find this pretty ridiculous, where are we supposed to get printed t shirts printed this exact way. I feel like they should at least compensate for the items since we will have to purchase them. Im going to show up with a white t shirt with my last name written in sharpie, cheapest place I could find is $30 per shirt + shipping.

Fill your boots if you want, but you'll last one DT class before you're told to go get them done properly. This is far from the most ridiculous thing about COTA.

One DT class...?
There are rules/policies against bullying and intimidation... 'Any guff over something this petty should be taken up the chain. Who the f### do these "instructors" think they are..?
Just look 'em in the eye, tell tell them your name and remind them not to forget it.
Admit nothing.
Deny everything.
Make counter accusations...

Also this person sounds like an inmate, too much crying and super entitled. Get a box of kleenex you are tearing up.

I agree... It's ridiculous, but it's how they like to operate. Thing is though, and you'll learn it eventually. Your new employer is a cheap-skate.
The other thing is... They think they can dictate a lot of stuff they really can't and when called out on their BS they slink away back into their hidey-hole.

Every once in a while an edict comes out from admin "reminding" everyone about dress and deportment... They even try to tell us what colour socks to wear...
It's routinely ignored.
If they want to start supplying uniform socks and Tee Shirts... Great.
Until then I'll buy what I want.
You'll also notice very few officers wear the issued uniform trousers... They suck. Most people just bite the bullet and buy their own better quality/fit pantaloons.
If I were at COTA I'd be right there with newaccount2021 except my shirt would be any colour but white and my name in sharpie would read "Mibalzarichi"

I'm assuming you're talking about the direct deposit form that was sent out? I received an email confirmation afterward.

Yes you should have received a receipt from the address noreply@ontario.ca
It will require a version of Internet Explorer to transmit. If you use chrome or microsoft edge it won't work. Also it may require you to use a gmail account.
