i like to hear your thoughts. would any of you guys do rcmp as a job or go into it. if so why or why not. i like to hear your reasons. be it too dangerous , not my thing, to i like to do it b/c its helpin the public, and good government job. would you do rcmp soley on the fact its a government job and the pay is very good 45k first yr and 80k after 3 yrs.
what it like being a rcmp. is it hard to get in. what do they look for.
is it like a slack job. do you just drive around a lot and go to tim hortons and hang out. is it very slow and u just watch dvd movie, and listen to ur ipod or is it a lot of work and fast pace and can be very dangerous work

Sign up for the preliminary session and from there you can sign up for the written test, sign up for this written test
ASAP. Go to the book store and get the Police exam guide. Go over it and this will prepare you for the test.
You will get results from this test within 3 months. During this three months get ready for the physical part; start
running and weight training. You will need to get a bunch of medical exams done also (also eye exam).
If you pass all this (and polygraph test) then you will go to Depot, you will get your basic training there. At
depot they pay you very little and its for at least 6 months. If you pass this then you will spend two years
with a RCMP constable (field training sort of). These two years are at another province (not your home province).
After this two year period you maybe eligible to transfer back to your home province.
