survey about police interrogations and confessions [11 Apr 2009|01:52pm]

I am writing to ask for help with an online survey that I am conducting.  The survey is about police interrogations and confessions.

It should take no more that 15 to 20 minutes to complete. We especially need people with a military background as they are not often surveyed about these beliefs.  However, any individual regardless of their background is greatly appreciated.  In order to participate, you have to be over the age of 18, and currently reside in the United States.

To take the survey, please click this link. http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/118794/zh3t4

Thank you for your help

[ mood | optimistic ]

 Hi. This is Cpl. Anonymous from one of the Saskatchewan squadrons, and I figured I'd let you guys know that the Canadian cadet teaching program is undergoing a massive revamp. I just got back from a weekend at Saskadet where we were briefed on the new program, and it looks great.
This coming September, we will be starting to use a new Level One teaching program, and a new one will be released every year for each respective level until 2012.
I'd like to know if anyone has any questions/comments about the new program. I might not be able to answer all of them, but I can probably find the info somewhere.
You can find more information about the program at cadets.ca in the Staff Resources and Tools section, then in the Cadet Training documents.
Let me know what you think.

I'm Hazel McNeil, a cdt Cpl from Glasgow and West of Scotland wing
I've been to numerous camps including RAF Akrotiri, RAF Waddy (what a camp!), Llanbedr (first time I went i broke my arm :( ) and loads more I can't be bothered typing out.
I've got seven of these;

and I still haven't got any further than regionals :\
I'm going to ICTC sometime soon (death by powerpoint, woohoo :\ )
Oh and today, I'm applying to the RAF to be a photographer.
Wish me luck :\

RAF Application Process [20 Sep 2006|10:17am]
[ mood | anxious ]

I realise this community if focused heavily on the ATC as opposed to the RAF (or anything of the like). However I have a question or two incase anyone here is in the RAF.. I have my testing coming up soon and want to ask people who have been in my position before.

1. How did you fair on your AST test? Did you have enough time to complete all questions?

2. What tests did the health assessment contain?

3. Do you have to be superfit to pass the physical test following that?

4. I assume you do all three tests in the one day.. So after you've done the AST, and passed, you move straight onto the health examination and, if you pass that, you go straight onto the fitness test and then interview. And then have the presentation in the afternoon?

5. Do they really grill you in the interview? I've never had a formal one before, despite having worked in many jobs.. My skills got me the job so I didn't need an interview ^^;

6. Did you ever fail the above? Why did you fail? Have you repeated the testing again since failing?

Thanks to all who can answer any of the above for me =]

just out of cadets [19 Dec 2005|12:14pm]

[ mood | amused ]

hey hey hey people!
just checking this out... been watching for some time.

i just left my cadet program in canada. i was a sergeant at 845 avro arrow sqn, mississauga. pretty cool set-up. i've done ILTC-trenton-2003, ITRCC-connaught-2004, and connaught staff cadet 2005. i've also been to the phase 2 provincial band competition the past two years (2004 and 2005). anyone been there hit me back! same with anyone in 4CAG or TAG who would have met me at random FTXs or dances or get-togethers of sorts.

i sort of miss all the parade nights and stuff.... actually not really... now i get to dye my hair crazy colours again... but it was good times. a lot of experiences and new people. i should post a picture of the canadian air cadet uniform... it's pretty sharp.

hello [29 Oct 2005|11:56pm]

[ mood | awake ]

My name is Joanne Bridson, Im 15 and joined cadets at 2168 yeadon squadron about 8 months ago so I am still a cadet (obviously)
I have to say that I am enjoying myself so much and love the ATC and all the activities and award schemes it provides.
I have accomplished the practice session of my Bronze Duke Of Edinborough award, Been on Beckingham camp and recently went to Buckimshire and competed in the band competition.
I want to know if there is anyone from around the area of yeadon (It is near Leeds by the way) and if anyone went to Beckingham this year or the band competition that was held in Buckimshire
Or just generally anyone as live journal is such a cool place!
