Join Task Force two – JTF2
I recently discovered That Canada have a Special Force (Not The SWAT Team) but Special Force for The ARMY , It’s Called The Join Task Force Two (JTF2) .
The term “joint task force” is used for any force made up of two or more elements of the Canadian Forces.
The Join Task Force Two is like The S.A.S (Special Air Service Regiment (SAS)) a very well trained Force .
If you want to get an Idea what is the S.A.S … Check this video (59 minutes)
Back to the Canadian Join Task Force two (JTF2) :
There Main mission is to provide Canada a force capable of rendering armed assistance in the resolution of an issue or a potential issue that affects national security , even if there main role is Counter-Terrorism they can be assigned to any type of military operations, which include, but are not limited to, surveillance, security advice and close personal protection .
To Join The Join Task Force Two (JTF2) in general you have to be in the ARMY , (2 Year as Regular or 3 years As Reservist ) .
And The Contract is between 4 and 6 years .
Physical Test for the Join Task Force 2
You will need to do :
- 40 Push-ups (Minimum – no rest)
- 40 Sit-ups (Minimum in 1 mn)
- 5 pull-ups
- Bench press (65 kg min)
- Run 1.5 mile (2,4 km) in 9 mn
For the Army we had to do the same but instead of 40 .. it was 20 .
There is two kind of Personnel : Special Operations Assaulters (SOA) & Support Personnel (SP) and Specialists
Special Operations Assaulter : personnel who are directly employed in the tactical aspects of special operations and other high value tasks .
Support Personnel (SP) and Specialists : personnel who are selected from Regular and Reserve Force MOCs to fulfil JTF 2 requirements in Staff Officer, support, and specialist positions.
