Ask a Canadian military medic

10


10 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Sep 06, 2017

I will answer most questions that you have about being in the Canadian military as a medic. I have been in the army since 2014 and I am a reservist (this means part-time, this is still the "real army"). We can chat for as long as you want (max 1 hour?), about anything from recruitment process to ranking system, basic training, medical training, career progression, etc.

Note: I may not have all the answers to ALL your questions, especially the administrative ones. I can do my best though ;)

Training & Qualifications


I am a military medic in the Canadian Armed Forces since 2014 as a reservist, as well as a civilian paramedic. I can compare experiences and point out differences in practice and in focus. I have done several medical supports on exercises with the infantry and other groups, and have done some clinical work, various trainings and courses.

Availability & Preferences


Week days (day time), but I'm also available at other odd times. Hit me up!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Hate that everything has a price tag attached to it, so I find that service exchange is the way to go! Or, I can offer my services just paying it forward, the amount of Simbi points that they cost ...

About Ignatius Chan

I like to help people, I like to inspire people to become better than themselves. I'm a civilian paramedic, army medic, I teach break dance on the side and I still compete and train, I play and mix mu...sic for fun. I've learned piano for over 11 years (I stopped a little over 10 years ago), self taught guitar, self taught drums, and DJ-ing and mixing. I think that teaching is one of my favorite things to do in the world, so eventually I'd like to teach paramedics, share my experiences with the young fresh blood. As for dancing, although I don't dance as a career, I'm pretty serious about it, and I train hard for competitions. I absolutely love teaching it, my students' accomplishments and pride are my best reward. I'm always up for a challenge, especially if it's a physical one. I live in Montreal and I'm perfectly trilingual (English, French, Chinese), although my writing and reading in Chinese is in a slow decline... What more can I say about myself? I don't like autobiographies.show more
