I would think homeschooling would be better. From my friends experience they seem to say it's alot harder than normal schooling. Like what tracker and the others said if you got proof it shouldn't problem I guess.

    I  have read posts in the past regarding the issue of home schooling, I seem to remember it being a problem just for the reason that provincial exams had not been taken and transcripts were not available. You would really have to talk to a  recruiter regarding this issue.  I would guess that as long as you had some kind of provincial transcript, providing courses, grades and so on, you would be ok as long as it was a recognised institution.

Hey guys, just wondering how many of you have joined with your grade 12 equivilancy.  Im 22 now, and have had my GED since Aug of this year, but havent attended highschool since grade 10 (which I didn't complete).  The recruiters have told me that a GED is good enough to get in, I was just curious if any of you have already gone through this. 
Thanks again!

My advice to you is to get your grade twelve. Take english, math, and chem twelve along with whatever else you need.

A GED is good enough to join (i.e. it meets the requirements).

I have spoken to many folks in the CF, both ResF and RegF, who just did their GED or went back for night school to complete their diploma while in the CF, and they have no complaints. That said, you have a lot of options. You may also want to attend college while in the CF in order to improve your job marketability and career options.

However, make sure you prepare for the aptitude test, as this will make or break you with regards to getting in.

Im currently enrolled in Algonquin college in Ottawa.  My big plan  for January was to take the Police foundations (2 year course) program, and try and get into the Vancouver police department.  After many restless nights, i've decided that i'd rather join the forces.  The Pay scale is similar,  but I think the forces would be a more enjoyable experience.  I can always try out for a police force later, if I find the army to be less then what I expect.

When I joined the RegF in '96 I only had 16 high school credit (only 15 were required). When I got back in in 2002, I had a GED but ti was not required.

Do you need  8 Gr.9 credits and 8 Grade 10 credits, or just 16 total credits? say 8 Gr.9, 7 Gr.10 and 1 Grade 11.

Hopefully you understand what I'm saying.

Do you mean 5 high school credits? As far as I'm aware you need a grade 10 education to join the military.

You should be fine physically. All you need to do is to be able to keep up.

Credits vary from Province to Province, the rule of thumb is the completion of grade 10.  You must be 16 before you can apply for ROTP or the Reserves.  Call 1-800-856-8488 to be sure.

Well at the momment im trying to join the 56th Fld Regt, the recuiter said to bring him a copy of my high-school transcript. So I went to get it. However I only have 4 Credits. If im correct the requirement is 15.

What I want to know is there a way to join the Army without the credits but get into something so I can earn my credits while im in the Armed Forces? I was dumb back then and never handed anything in so now im paying for it down the road.

Anyone have any tips?

If you are referring to Regular forces, im pretty sure the recruiter wont touch you until you complete grade ten but once you are in, the military will reimburse any money you spend on correspondance fees to upgrade your education.Also when you are posted to your first base after training, there are plenty of local resources offered including night school, french language training etc. that are available to you.

Some highschools have a Militia program where you go live on a base for a full semester.  You do military stuff and school stuff I think.  I believe you earn six credits.  I don't know much about it so your better to check with a teacher/guidance.

In order to do a co-op program with the army you usually have to be in either grade 11 or 12. Since you haven't completed grade 9 yet there isn't a way you can earn credits with the military at this point in time, you must earn your grade 9 and 10 compulsory credits first.

I actually e-mailed a local recruiter about this last week (I'm also 15 and turning 16 on January) and this is part of his response.

"The minimum requirement is age 16 WITH 6 credits of Grade 10 completed and be a Canadian Citizen."

He's talking about recruitment for the reserves. I'm in British Columbia.

Its the same for the Reg Force also, only you need to be 17(with consent)

For the COOP program, you can apply if you have less than 15 credits. HOWEVER, you are not permitted to participate in the program unless you have the 15 credits. So, you can apply if you are expecting to have the 15 credits by the time you are actually enrolled in the CF.

Otherwise, you need to get your GED -- General Education Diploma. This may be the best way for you. I would suggest contacting the local board of education to receive more info on getting the GED.
