In regard to RETP I was informed last year that they aren't accepting anyone into that program anymore, not sure if this has changed over the past year, but that's what I've heard.

RETP isn't managed or controlled by CF Recruiting, it's actually a "Reserve Force" program.   They merely process your application as directed and then after that, it's all in the hands of CFMILPERSCOM and at their leisure.   A "bakers dozen" or so get selected every year.
Got a question that you're afraid to ask online?  PM me!  I don't bite........

Alright thanks for all the information, the program that I would like to do is not offered at RMC and is offered at York, Laurier, Ryerson, and such. I also prefer going to a civvie university as my preference. Also one other thing, I've been having some problems applying online through ROTP, the just of the problems comes up at the education page where it tells me to put the details of my education, one of the main problems is pertaining to date last attended/completed... It keeps saying its invalid, can someone help me out? I've been trying to fix this since yesterday

For the education level, just select Gr 10 (ie; the lowest available completed).   You can sort that issue out at a later date with your CFRC.

You can select any recognized Canadian University of your choice when applying for ROTP and put that down as your first preference but the above will always take precedence, unless your program of study is not offered by RMC.   Also, all applicants are informed of the requirement to make application to a Canadian University.  Selection and attendance at a Military College, is never a given!!!   You need to have a backup!!!

Please.  If you are not knowledgeable in the facts, try not to add to the confusion.  If you had read this whole topic, you would have read this post:



RETP is only available at RMC.  Otherwise, you'd join a Reserve unit under the RESO program.

So I had a question from a private turn into a less-than-successful quest for information, and I'd like to collect information here for someone to reference in the future.

Private asked what the difference between RETP and RESO was, and all I had for them was one goes to RMC (but pays tuition vs ROTP) and the other goes to a civilian university. RESO officers get commissioned after CAP. Both undergo occupational training alongside ROTP and DEO.

I couldn't answer any follow-up questions, such how are RETP employed or at what rate of pay (eg. if a Cpl 1, stay at same rate of pay vs OCdt). I referred the member to the BPSO and CFRC, which they will hopefully be able to access at some point between work and their summer training.

Meanwhile, I tried to find answers for my own reference. I'm collecting what I've found here, and invite anyone with references or firsthand knowledge to post it here as well. If the information is on the site, I haven't found it.

Is RETP still available for civilians, though? I looked into RMCC and CAF recruiting sites any reference to RETP was nowhere to be found.
