Inside RTC #122 - Observations from my first day

September 30, 2011

Today I attended my first class with RTC #122, Provincial Acts and Bylaws. Stand by for a full blog post about my day next week.

In the meantime I want to leave you with a few observations and points I learned after talking to recruits:

  • Much like a policing career, each day of training seems to bring something new. It is exciting!
  • Today’s classroom session was far from a lecture. People with varying learning styles can expect to be successful. As a complete hands-on or kinesthetic learner, I really appreciated this method.
  • The recruit class of 33 seems to be forming a cohesive team at this early stage of the game. And they looked professional and crisp in their uniforms.
  • The recruit trainers weren’t intimidating. Rather, they were easy to talk to and recruits were comfortable asking questions.
  • The recruits are tired. The physical fitness sessions in the first two weeks have proven to be tough.
