The Royal Military College in Saint-Jean, Quebec is hosting its annual open house on October 27th from 9 am to 4 pm.
RMC Saint-Jean is one of two locations, the second being in Kingston, Ontario. Both facilities offer high-level education for career paths into the Canadian Armed Forces.
The facility is open to men and women who may be interested in a career with the CAF and who are interested in furthering their education to do so. During the open house, visitors are invited to tour the grounds, learn about enrollment, speak with faculty and current students as well as gain more information about the programs offered at the RMC.
“The open house is a unique opportunity to meet with young women and men who would like to know more about our programs, military life, and discuss with officer cadets currently at RMC Saint-Jean. For those who are interested, they can get the support of recruiters to start the process of application,” says Lieutenant Navy Delphine Bonnardot, Public Affairs Officer for RMC Saint-Jean.
On average, 300 applicants will be accepted into the RMC each year, with 14 per cent of those successful applicants studying to become an Infantry Officer, with Artillery Officer following at 10 per cent.
Following success at the RMC, graduates are required to fulfill five to seven years with the Canadian Armed Forces.
“There is an important number of applications, and there are many possibilities in the CAF, other than RMC Saint-Jean. It is the reason why recruiters will be on site to answer questions and guide people. We also had parents in the past who decided to join the CAF after a visit at RMC Saint-Jean for their children,” says Lieutenant Navy Delphine Bonnardot.
To be eligible to apply for the RMC you must be a Canadian citizen, at least 16 years old, and on the verge of obtaining a high school diploma.
