Is anyone in the process of applying? Also, has anyone had a PLAR done for the Firefighter trade? Im just wondering how long it took. Thanks. PLAR is done at the academy usually when a candidate is in the CFFCA's holding platoon. If your credentials match up with approved list of programs at the sc...

Don't quote me on this but I believe the dnd guys are EMR cert only. Bases are covered by municipal medical services with the exception of CFB Valcartier which still has the MEDTECHS answering calls but that will be phased out this year if it isn't already done. A shame if you ask me.

Congrats buds, you're a lucky guy to get in direct entry! BMQ is easier than it used to be but still not to be taken lightly. If you have an attitude, loose it if you have and ego, loose it be a team player, give your 100% and "play the game" When that 20 year old master corporal with peach fuzz tri...

[quote=""8888""]I heard that in the CF they usually have their members re-muster(transfer) into the firefighting postings. I think the next opening is in 2 years. Not sure if it would be open to the public tho. DND isnt always recruiting. Its pretty much a firehall on a CF base (at least in my area ...

From what I have been told it can take months and you can be given an offer of employement and still not know if you are entering as skilled or not until you actually show up for your QL3 (trade course) in combats.

Whats your status, have you been given a job offer or loaded on a BMQ?

The prior learning assessment is part of the process to determine if you are on the skilled or un skilled entry path. I don't have access to DWAN but you can find the DGMC OC, CT and VOT workflow somewhere on there. I'm pretty sure it states that PLAR is done before the interview. I can confirm tomo...
