Preparation guide: Applying to the Canadian Coast Guard College
What the process assesses
The selection processes has many stages, including:
- an application
- a written exam
- an interview
The evaluation committee will assess you for essential and non-essential (asset) qualifications. The job poster tells you which competencies and abilities are being assessed. It also identifies which skills are essential and non-essential (asset) qualifications.
Remember: You cannot be screened out of the selection process for an asset qualification. However, they can be used as a deciding factor between candidates.
If you meet all the essential qualifications for the position, the committee will deem you "partially qualified". At this point, you may receive a conditional offer.
A conditional offer means we reserved a position for you, but you must meet certain conditions. These conditions include that you:
- continue to meet the educational requirements
- meet all conditions of employment (such as the medical and security assessments)
If you fail to meet these conditions by the deadline at any stage, we will remove you from the process.
The selection process is difficult. There are many applicants and a limited number of spots available. If you do not succeed, we highly encourage you to re-apply.
