Training for officers

Basic Military Officer Qualification

The Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) is the Canadian Armed Forces’ basic training program for future officers. The course is divided into two modules, the first is five weeks long and the second is seven weeks long. Module 1 focuses on basic military discipline and skills such as drill, weapons training and first aid. Module 2 focuses on leadership techniques and basic military planning skills. Both modules have a heavy physical fitness component. Depending on the entry plan, candidates will either conduct these modules back-to-back or over two consecutive summers.
