Re: still waiting on ARC reults

They told me I passed on the spot, I didn't know you're supposed to wait for the email? The email was only useful to me to know the %. On the day they told me I passed and after the fitness test, the Army guy who was making me take the test explained to me I will be on merit list and how it works. T...

Re: Vetting Process

I took and passed ARC and fitness back in December! Then I was on merit list for a while, so I applied to a second prison. After that I got an offer for both and I took a little time to decide which one I wanted to most, then vetting started on 27th of Feb :) To be fair they had lots of my info alre...

Re: Vetting Process

I started vetting on 27th of February, could have started sooner but I had a hard time getting a paper translated from my home country language to English.
I didn't get The Call yet, but my profile changed to what I wrote on my last post this morning! Hope that helps :)

Re: Vetting Process

I provided them a proof of empty criminal record and even got it translated by a professional translation company to make sure it's all official, hopefully it will be enough to not slow down my process.

Re: What score did you get at your ARC?

I got 75 at my ARC, and got put on merit. I then applied to an other prison to have the choice, and got a job offer for both so I got to choose which is cool, and now I'm being vetted

Re: Vetting Process

Hi, futur female officer here ! I am currently being vetted, and was wondering if my vetting could take longer because I'm foreign ? Since they have to check my background for 2 different countries. I have no idea if one of you would know that but thought I'd ask !

Cheers
