RMC/Civ U update
Right now I am in a holding pattern while the NHQ reviews my medical files to see if I am an acceptable candidate for pilot and to see if I am an acceptable candidate to be a member of the Canadian Forces. If they deem me acceptable for both, I go to Trenton to do some more testing. A weeks worth of testing to be exact. I don’t quite now what I will be doing in Trenton, but if I get past the one week and am part of the 50% that pass I go onto more testing in Toronto to see if I am eligible to become a pilot in the Canadian Forces. If at any point I fail the testing at Trenton, at Toronto, or I am deemed unsuitable to be a pilot, then I just have to go back to the Recruiters and change my desired careers.
At this point, if my primary choice was MARS officer, I would have to wait until the RMC council meets in January to see if they will accept me to RMC or to a Civ U. But since I applied as a pilot, I have to go through some more testing. I love testing.
I am hopeful that I can get through the testing in Trenton and Toronto without to much of an issue so I can pursuit my dreams to be a Tactical/Maritime Helicopter Pilot or a Transport Pilot. I am going to give it my all in hopes that things will work out.
I have also made some small changes to my application as I have had some time to think about things. At first I applied to have Civ U as my primary choice, but I now know that what I really want is to attend RMC. The friendship and discipline that I would gain from the experience would be life changing. I know that I will be at least 4 to 5 years older then most Officer Cadets, but I am OK with that. I know that we are all there for the same reason.
I have not heard anything from the people I put down as a reference for a background check, so I don’t think it has gotten to that level yet. I am hopeful to hear something soon as I really need a change in my life. This position I am in is just sucking the life out of me.
