Chapitre Fort Saint-Jean


« As new students starting their studies at Royal Military College Saint-Jean, the officer cadets are eased into the military lifestyle for the purpose of preparing them for their future careers in the Canadian Armed Forces. Students quickly learn essential skills for maintaining the high standard of discipline expected of them in their Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) training and through the First Year Orientation Program (FYOP). It is through these periods that aspiring officers truly learns whether they have what it takes for the job, and nothing compares to the glorious feeling of completing (Obstacle Course): a rite of passage that allows officer cadets to become full-fledged members of the College. I have loved every moment of my military life up to now, conquering all of the challenges it throws at me, and can’t wait to see where it takes me. »

« In the few months since I arrived at RMC Saint-Jean, I have had to adapt to a busy lifestyle. The most important part of being an officer cadet is balancing the challenges of school, military duties, sports and personal life. Fortunately, we are academically well-supported at the college, with a multitude of resources at our disposal including having small class sizes where teachers who know us by name. A variety of military exercises throughout the year prepare us for a career in the Canadian Armed Forces and allow us to experience life in the field, and the excellent athletic facilities at our disposal allow us stay in shape all year around. So far, my time at RMC saint-Jean has been a very enjoyable experience and I look forward to the next 4 years as well as to an interesting career in the Canadian Armed Forces. »
