CF Firefighter Promotion/Pay
Just curious about a few things, if anyone could clear them up for me it would be appreciated!
1) Military Police get promoted to Corporal right after BMQ and then receive retro pay for their time spent at BMQ. Why don't Firefighters get promoted to Corporal after BMQ, or do they?
-I'm assuming the reason is because MPs require their college diploma in order to get hired with the Forces, where as a Firefighter can be direct entry, with or without a diploma, thus having to be trained anyways. Correct?
2) Spec pay. I've heard rumours that Firefighters may be receiving spec pay in the near future, that it's in arbitration. I have also heard that they got shot down and have to wait another 7 or so years before asking for spec pay again. Any clarification?
3) Anyone know where I can locate some information on the Fire Academy course start dates?
Any help is appreciated !
