    CIC transition steps.

    Alright, I'm trying to make the bold and mighty move from CI to CIC. Now, I've already submitted all my paperwork months ago thanks to a strong admin department at my local (thanks)... now whats next aside from inuendo and rumour. ie. Ive "heard" next is an interview with the local recruting office followed by a medical. Am I right? Please correct.

    well unless CIC recruitment is vastly different from any other with the CF, which I don't believe it is, then you are correct, sir!

    I know with CF recruiting there is also an aptitude test and a physical fitness test, but they might not do that for CIC

    grass_roots is correct, there are no aptitute test or physical fitness test.


    When I did mine, I had a medical and an interview. THen they lost my paperwork for 6 months.

    On a side note, there is no need to delete this, simply because it can help others who may have similar questions.

    That is the beauty of a forum!!

    I put my paperwork in at the end of September and JUST got sworn in today actually

    After you send in the first stuff they will send you a package in the mail. After that is all proccessed you get a medical (they did mine first so that if I failed it they wouldn't hve to do the interview or something like that) then you get a interview. After that, thats all you hvae to do but wait.

    Wow, that is fast. Your file must have been "clean". By "clean" I mean no medical issues and no previous service. The RCSU(A) has an agreement with the Regional CFRC to try and speed up the process and the goal is (I think) 8 weeks for a clean file.

    Yeah I have no medical problems and there's nothing in my family either.

    My papers hit the Detachment at the end of February 2003, and I was attested on 20 May 03 Nice and clean, and a bit refreshing for our CFRC.

    Try to get your medical and interview scheduled on the same day. Unless you have previous service or medical issues, everything should come back to you within four weeks.

    Good luck!

    Bonjour à tous!

    J'espère que tous le monde vont bien. Here is my story for my enrolement procedure!

    Firstly, I had been a CI for 2 1/2 years until my CO desided that it was time for my enrolement, (and that there was a spot open for my in my unit). She gave me the news in Jan '03, and the spot officially opened up the next month (when one of our officers' officially changed unit). On that day did I sign my new contact to become a generalist class Civilian instructor, and that my application was sent to the Montréal Cadet Detachement. It took about a month / month and a half until I received my CF enrolement papers. I had 3 months to fill them out, get all the paper work ready, and sent it to the Montréal Recruitment Centre. My interview was in late May, and my physical was on the same day. Then I waited until the evening of August 1, 2003, while, thinking that I was going to the House Warming of my XO (because, that's what I was told), actually, the flag was placed on the table as I got in, with the Queen's portrat near-by, and my CO began the Pledge ceremony.

    Therefore, it took me about a half a year to enrole, and an open spot at my unit. I hope that there is an open spot for you @ your unit.

    Passé une bonne journée!

    They wouldn't do my medicla the same day as my interview. I had to clear the medical first before they let me do the interview.

    The private that schedualed my appointments took the time to be sure that both my medical and my interview could have been on the same day. However, for another NCdt of my unit, she had to do her interview, and a week later, her medical.

    Good day!

    Please vote, if you haven't already.

    I'm very interested to see if I can make some conclusions on average timing for CIC enrollment...

    Does any one know if the Omnibus CIC survey is finished and published somewhere?

    Merci!!!

    What I recommend as the best transition step from being a cadet to becoming a CIC officer is to take some time to serve as a CI. As a CI, you will learn the operation of your unit, and learn how to become a better future CIC officer. As one member of the forum says it so well, CI is only one letter away from CIC. I believe that while I was a CI, I was able to prepare for my officer courses, without the stress of knowing that it was coming up soon. Also, as a CI, I guess that you will be able to see if you're able to take the work load of being an officer.

    Good day to all!

    CIC Form help...

    Section 4 Prior Military Service.
    http://gtgc.aircadet.com/CF574(5-95)-Example.doc

    For the reservist.
    Do I put CI with an MOC 93A?
    Or nothing at all.

    I signed a unit volunteer agreement, does that mean I am a CI under the CIC or only under the local unit.

    Thanks.

    Answer

    Your a CI. Yes, you did have to sign a contact with your commanding officer to allow you to work with your unit, however, it does not mean that you are a member of the CIC under MOC 93A.

    Every civilian instruction has the sign a contact with their commanding officers, whether to be a specialist CI or a generalist CI. By signing this contact, it gives you the responsibility to supervise cadet during activities. A volunteer to the unit does not have the responsibility.

    I would recommend that you ask the CIC officers at your unit to help you fill up the paper work for your enrolement. They are the best people to help you through the procedure.

    Good luck!

    I just had a look over the CI forms, and I don't see MOC on there anywhere. I have never heard MOC used in relation to CI's, only military personnel.

    Maybe one of our admin gurus like Lt(N) Cyr will see this and give us the scoop from an HQ perspective

    On the example application is has a MOC 93A. All the other information states that the individual (bloggins I think his name was) was a CI under the CIC.

    But since I did not fillout an enrollement under the CIC as a CI (There is a form for that so I assume it is common/irregular practice) I don't put don't CIC/reservist.

    Indeed, I shall consult with my LHQ officer staff.

    Merci !

    So to answer your question...

    No, you do not have prior military service.

    Although... I believe there is a place to put your cadet experience.
