Anyone who has gone through the MP training in recent years able to shed some light on what the course is like? I mean as it compares to BMQ. Inspections? Weekends taken away? Indoc? After hours?
Basically just wondering what to expect!

It not as rigorous and strict as BMQ, however you will have daily PT and Inspections. Your days will be 0530-1630, however you'll find yourself and your course mates using your downtime to study, practice your skills and training.

You will have weekends off, as long as your leave passes are approved (so don't do anything stupid, work hard, work as a team).

The Commandant is very big on "One Team" mentality. You will be training and in the future working with reservists; in the past there were Academy staff that bad mouthed reservists.... LCol Battista does not tolerate it and you'll find yourself looking for a new career.

He's also big into fitness, you'll definitely be more fit when you leave. Some days are absolute bag drives (The Payne Train, The Murph, 20 Minutes of Mayhem), but most are well done. I was rarely sore or felt like it was too difficult, it was certainly still challenging. There was one Friday where he took us through a morning of yoga to help us destress and recover.

Use your time and your mind wisely, but it is an adult learning environment and you'll be treated as such... As long as you don't give them a reason to treat you like a bunch of kids on BMQ again.

Just an aside note, noticed the new recruiting videos for the MP trade reflecting the new academy. Good job.

Any idea on numbers needed for 2017? Thinking about putting my diploma to use when I re-enter as an option.

We're always undermanned

If you want in, just do it. They'll find a spot if you're selected.

Cheers, contacted the CFRC this am and he said 100 people for this year.

Going to try it out.

Been accepted for my VOT to MP.  Start Aug 8th.  Two English courses and one French.  Seems like they are pumping out a lot of new MPs considering the trade is on the smaller side.

Really looking forward to starting course.

Anyone else on the forum starting Aug 8th?

Holy ****, that's pretty good!

Was the BPSO interview something you had to book yourself, or is it done for you through DMCPG?

The BPSOs office called me to book the initial.  I did the first interview with the BPSO, as well as a personality test.  CFAT score was valid and was high enough so I choose not to redo.

From there I was told that if merit listed I would be selected for further interviews.  The next interview was done by a Sgt MP.  This is when I submitted drivers abstract, employment history, etc.

How long did the interview with the MP Sgt take? An did they come to you or did you visit them at the guardhouse?

It's an interview, from a qualified assessor/investigator.

It can typically be anywhere from 1-3 hours.

They will come to you, or you will go to them depending on your proximity to a base and MP unit.

I just received an email from the recruiting centre with an additional form to fill out titled "Consent to Disclosure of Police Records (CPIC and SAMPIS) for CPAC, MPAC, MPOAC and Disclosure of Current/Previous Employment Information", is that a good sign that I may be receiving a date for my MPAC soon, or is that just another arbitrary form to complete??

Someone correct me if I am wrong. It is my understanding that is the next step after your background check is completed from your recruiting centre, as I have been told from some others in the process. That is also my next step. Also, there is no more MPAC at Borden as a trial this year.

After you submit that then there is an interview with the MP's.
