I am not certain whether this would mean that I could become a paramedic/PCP outside of the CAF.

Good luck.

Additionally, is there any type of eyesight requirement for Med Tech, as I wear glasses and cannot find any information on the internet regarding this mater.

The website linked below has all the information regarding medical standards for the CAF including the medical category requirements for each individual trade. 

Canadian Armed Forces Medical Standards (CFP 154)

Annex A will explain what each component of the Med Cat is for/means as well as the Common Enrolment Medical Standard requirements.

Annex E will allow you to find the requirements for each trade in the CAF.


As for selecting a trade, whether it be NCM or Officer. my advice is pick the one you can see yourself doing for XX years.  Whether NCM or Officer, you may not be able to move between trades for a variety of reasons or factors.  Yes, Officers tend to make more in salary, but NCMs can make close to their pay.  Example, SAR Techs receive Specialist Level 2 pay and Rescue Specialist Allowance (starts at $595/month).

Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

I have a law degree from UK (but not a qualified lawyer). In the officer route, may I know what trade I am qualified for?

Thanks!

cyl2chan,

If you have not already ordered one, you will require an acadademic credential assessment (ex. IQAS) to determine the equivalency of your degree. Assuming that it will state equivalency to a bachelors, you would qualify for all Officer occupations that accept "any bachelors degree" for Direct Entry (DEO). Off the top of my head, this list includes: Infantry Officer, Artillery Officer, Armoured Officer, Logistics Officer, Intelligence Officer, Pilot, Aerospace Controller, Air Combat Systems Officer, Signals Officer, Military Police Officer, and Naval Warfare Officer.

If you want to apply as a Legal Officer, you'll have to be called to the bar and be of good standing by the Law Society of a Canadian Province. It is a highly competitive trade and your experience within the legal profession will be given significant consideration.
