I did the course as an army cadet. You need:

6 wk CLI course -doesn't matter which, although Storesman or QM (whatever they call it now, don't know whether they still have it) probably won't look very good on you record, it's for slackers

National Star Certification Examination (pass, preferably with a good score)

17 years old (or 16 with a waiver)

Pass a full Canadian Forces medical examination
(no previous joint problems, no skin problems, no current drug use, athsma, no disease, etc) If you don't tell em anything you should pass, just lie your way through. Never broke any bones, never been in the hospital, never had surgury, etc

PT req's are:
10 chinups
4 miles in under 32 minutes
1 mile under 7.5 minutes
40 pushups
50 situps

These are the bare minimum req's. I'd suggest being able to do 15 chinups, 4 mile in less than 28 minutes, mile in under 5.5 maybe 70 pushups and several hundred situps. They test everyone and take the top # they need.

Space Marine,

Advising someone to lie their way through a medical is not a bright thing to do. The standards are there for a reason. They are used to screen out people who may not be able to complete the course without injuring themselves. If you injure yourself on course and it becomes found out that you lied on the medical, you will probably not be covered for any expenses and teatment you incurr as a result. You could also face disciplinary action at your Corp for putting yourself and possibly others at risk. The best advise to offer to someone is for them to be a physically fit as possible and lay all the cards out on the table.
