    I see Three A/Boats O positions. I assume, due to the requirements of two of them to have White sail 3, that two of them will be used for the Overnight sail, if we're still doing that?

    I'm also curious as to the start//end dates of Training, if known.

    You assume correctly

    Training starts on 12 July and ends 20 August (except for MarEng of course)

    Your not the only one. It seems there has been a significant decrease in cadet leadership positions. Hopefully the Snr PO1's and the Coxswain will be able to handle the pressure. There will be a lot resting on the professionalism of the 2 Trg Dept CPO2s.

    Agreed. Every dept. will inevitably have a "senior staff cadet" of sorts, whether its in an official or non-official appointment. This cadet will just be a PO1, the same rank as say 5 other ppl in their department, more responsibility but no difference in pay.

    Ya, it is kinda strange that close to 10 CPO jobs were cut. I agree that there were alot but not that much. If I'm not mistaken, HMCS Ontario has a CPO2 for almost everything, (ie CPO2 of the Blocks and Dhoby??) so are they being cut too?

    That was the first thing that came to my mind. I also find it interesting that there will be only 1 "trades chief" that will be in charge of all the course, and staff cadets for each trade. They have a lot of work to do and good luck to anyone that fills it.

    HMCS ONTARIO has 12 CPO2 positions:

    CPO2 of Gunnery
    CPO2 of General Training
    CPO2 of Boatswain
    CPO2 of Sail
    CPO2 of Music
    WO2 of Athletics
    CPO2 of PERI
    CPO2 of Operations
    CPO2 of Accommodations
    CPO2 of Boatshed
    CPO2 of Supply
    CPO2 of Administration

    I'm not sure if there are others. With the CPU, I'm not sure how these positions will be affected. We won't know until the 2010 establishment comes out.

    We are so on the same page. LOTS of work. I mean the CPO's don't officially have a job to do directly with the course cadets, but they were generally always visible to the course cadets and gave each division in their trade BZs and such. But I'm sure if you ask most CPO1s they had a hard enough time trying to get around to divisions and see whats going on in training, even the Training CPO1. I can definitely see some adjustments that will need to be made in every department to make things run smoothly, personnel wise.

    Ya Quadra was similar, take out a couple of those jobs and replace them with others and it would be the same.

    Going to be interesting for sure with this new program and all the job cut backs. Everyone in this thread is used to the Quadra with 4 CPO1's and a few good CPO2's to make everything smooth. Im hoping that this year i get accepted for a CPO2 position if i get to Quadra from Atlantic region that is lol.Since there isnt going to be a CPO1 in the administration department side of things , will there be a CPO2? Im wondering this since i was Chief of Support Services at Acadia this summer, its the same job just classified under a different name.

    Who says that the CPO2 Trades Training is going to be in charge of all the SCdts for each trade? In summer 2009 we pushed very hard for the divisional system to be used. SCdts are responsible to their Course Os through their DivOs. If you look at the Org charts, the Chiefs are in a separate line and do not have any SCdts in their Chain of Command. The Coxswain is responsible to the Quadra CWO and there is a dotted line from the Coxswain to all SCdts and a dotted line from the Quadra CWO to all SCdts.

    It's not cutbacks , it's a reorganisation of resources. The overall budget is increased.

    I'd be very interested in seeing the org charts. Judging from your response it would seem that there has theoretically been a significant decrease in the reliance on cadet leadership. Senior NCMs are part of the divisional system. Staff Cadets, while being directly responsible to their officers still have an obligation to their non-commissioned superiors, especially given that there are a majority of matters that are not dealt with by officers. It's absurd to believe that the Coxswain is going to somehow pass down information to the entire PO1/PO2 Staff without having CPO's under him, and PO1's under them. Not to mention the sort of "binding" nature that a Department Chief has, which may or may not be a good thing. I can see this new system certainly reducing "departmentalism" and it will require very astute Training Chiefs, who are capable of looking beyond their own trade. I feel for the sailors who bring their concerns to their Trg Chief, who is a Shipwright.

    How exactly is the cadet chain of command intended to work?

    As an aside, I have always believed that QUADRA needed to reduce it's CPO's, especially in the PERI, Flotilla and QServices departments.

    You are totally correct ma'am. But, many SCdts used their trade chiefs to pass things up the chain of command. So in a sense they were probably kinda lazy since we all knew that it was the Cox'n we should be talking too. Since the trade chiefs would normally share an office with the SCdts in their department, it was easy to find them and talk to them.

    Now I guess we're gonna have to do things the right way

    Whoa whoa what Chief? Solve problems at the lowest level. There is a reason for the CPO2 rank. Imagine if every PO2 just went to the Coxswain every time they had a problem. Where are you referencing that going right to the CPO1 level is "the right way"?
