    Whats all the forms of training do you guys do down there?

    Up here for Regular forces (Infantry) it's 13 weeks in Quebec doing Basic (BMQ), 13 weeks doing Soldier Qualification at whatever battle school you are assigned to (So say Wainwright, Alberta for PPCLI), and than 10-13 weeks of MOS training at the same Battle school... than add 7 weeks or more if you get in a Specialist role say Rappel master, Sniper, Para-Jumper, etc.

    From start to finish you can be in training for upto 39+ weeks.

    :hsd: I'm kinda happy I'm going reserves for now :mamoru:
