Long enough.

You can never tell with those CFRC people.

Have patience, and think that you'll start your courses next year.

If you are waiting to get into the reserves or the regs, and have prior service the hold up is probably a Verification of Former Service. The VFS can take quite a long time especially if your prior service was more than a few years ago. If your service was more than 3 years then your documents and service file would have been archived. It seems ridiculous but someone coming of the street can get in faster than a person with prior service. Hope this helps, and call your local recruiter and get an update onthe status of your file.

Even after you were out here in Calgary last summer with Vinny, Stu and all I have not yet even had an interview!!!!! They're still trying to catch up with everything administratively, ask Simon, he might know the details.

Wow, I am finished everything. I started at the end of January.

I just had my medical and physical last wednesday and they said the results of my medical would go up to Borden and my regiment would phone and offer me a job in about two weeks when they have seen my file.

I think you should call your Recruiting Centre.

Don't tell me you can't do bloody 19 sit ups and 19 push ups in one minute, or run 2.4km in 12 minutes.

If I can do it, then so should you [Razz]

Oh ya, i can easily do 19 push ups sit ups etc... in one minuite, i was just curious as to how it goes. I heard they dont actually test you running 2.4 k, they uuse a machine to test your heart beats after 1 minuite etc..., am i right?

I had to do this stupid stair stepping thing for 3 minutes, then again for another three minutes but faster after my blood pressure was taken. I barely broke a sweat with that.

The push-ups are a little harder then what people think, but I still passed that. The sit-ups are a breeze.

There is no bench press, I don't think that there ever was. Only for things like the JTF and the SAR tecs.

Se7eN:

Check with the CFRS or where you are doing the PT Test, confirm if you are doing a grip test.

If you are, simplist thing, scoot down to your nearest living aids store and ask for a squeeze ball. Same idea as the stress ball.

If you are working out, talk to a muscle tech, one of the best things I found (IMHO), is when you are doing curls, let it roll slowly down your hand and then slowly roll it back up. Kind of like opening and closing your fist.

Cheers.
