Welcome to the Weapons Technician Land (MOSID - 00130) Occupational Advisor web page.
The page is made possible by the support of The Corps of Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
Director RCEME and the Wpns Tech Occupational Advisor would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest and invite your participation and feedback.
Occupational Advisor: Maj G. Wall
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Occupation Advisor for Weapons Technicians, a responsibility with which I am very honoured to have been entrusted. Over my career I have always been impressed with the dedication, knowledge, expertise and passion that you, as Weapons Technicians, have brought to your craft, your trade and our Corps, and it is my intent to learn as much as I can about what you do, and to represent you and your trade with that same passion. As Assistant Occupation Advisor and Occupation Advisor, CWO Yoshida and I serve you and your trade and we encourage Weapons Techs everywhere to keep in touch with us and to let us know the successes that you have had and the challenges that you face. Over the coming year we will be looking at what the future may hold in terms of weapon system capabilities, Canadian Army force development and employment and what it is that we need to do to support our Corps Vision of extending engineering expertise to the tactical level. In doing so we hope to meet as many of you as we can and we welcome your candid input.
I would be remiss if I did not also extend a sincere thanks to Maj Bourgeis and CWO Saunders for their service to you and our Corps as Occupation Advisor and Assistant Occupation Advisor Weapons. They have continued the great work of those that have come before them and, together with CWO Yoshida, we aim to continue building a strong and vibrant Weapons Technician trade and RCEME Corps.
OA Wpns Tech, Maj. G. Wall
Assistant Occupational Advisor: CWO J.T. Yoshida
Fellow Weapons Technicians, it is with a feeling of great pride that I take on the duty as your Assistant Occupational Advisor, a duty that I do not take lightly. It is my responsibility to advise the Corps Director through the Occupation Advisor, Maj Wall, on all issues that affect the trade today and those that will shape the trade in the future. This at first glance may seem challenging but I am confident that we can accomplish any task for no other reason then we have over 400 expert advisors, you, to help us overcome any obstacles. Open lines of communications are key and I highly encourage you to communicate both your successes and difficulties through your chain of command and your senior technical network. In closing, I too would like to thank the outgoing Occupation Advisor and Assistant Occupation Advisor Maj Bourgeois and CWO Saunders for their efforts and guidance to the trade over the past two years, and again look forward to working with you in providing the expert technical services to the CAF.
AOA Wpns Tech, CWO (Mr Gnr) Yoshida
Assistant Occupational Advisor: MWO D.P. Thompson
