We train on Wednesday nights 7 to 10 pm during the training year (September to May) as well as some weekends. Some phases of your more advanced training may be conducted a various military bases in Canada and involve extended full-time periods. Your initial training will include the following courses.
Basic Military Training
The first stage of training is the Basic Military Qualification (BMQ) Course. This training provides the basic core skills and knowledge common to all trades.
On successful completion of the BMQ, you will go on to the Soldier Qualification (SQ) Course which provides the individual skills and knowledge more specific to the infantry soldier.
Basic Infantry Qualification
After the SQ course follows the Basic Infantry Qualification (BIQ) Course, which expands further on individual skills and knowledge and also adds infantry section and platoon tactics.
