Commitment required from applicants
As part of this selection process, which will take about a year, applicants will be required to commit up to 20 working days of their personal time to:
- travel to the designated evaluation sites; and
- take the required tests.
In addition, applicants may also be asked to be available for up to seven consecutive days, during which time they will be away from work and family. Please note that travel-related expenses will be covered by the CSA.
The detailed schedule of the various tests in the 2016 recruitment campaign will be provided to the selected applicants several months in advance so that they can make the necessary arrangements with their families and employers.
