“Reservist training is designed around your school or work,” says Master Seaman David MacPherson. “In the summer, more reservists are available for full-time training. Every new recruit does basic military qualification training in the first summer. The next summer is occupational training, with classroom time and on-the-job training.”
Commissioned officer positions require enrollment or completion of a post-secondary degree. Non-commissioned officers require grade 10 or grade 11, depending on the position. Fifteen year olds can apply for the reserves, but cannot enroll until age 16, with parental or guardian permission.
