Training Officer – Lt (N) Rendlerobb
In February of 1995, I joined 135 RCSCC Admiral Nelles. That summer I attended General Training in Kingston Ontario. In April of 1996, due to a location change, I transferred to 153 RCSCC Woodstock. Over the next 6 years as a cadet I attended the Basic and Intermediate Band courses as well as Junior Leadership course. Summer Training provided the opportunity to travel to Kingston, Ontario twice as well as Comox, British Columbia twice.
During March of 1997, I traveled to Halifax, Nova Scotia with RCSCC Woodstock to participate in Submariner Training onboard HMCS Olympus. In August of 2000 I spent 3 weeks in British Columbia sailing up the coast from Comox to Kitimat on the tall ship, the “Maple Leaf”. I held several positions as a cadet at RCSCC Woodstock including Divisional Petty Officer, Guard Commander, Regulating Petty Officer and Coxswain. I also participated in first aid, Drill with and without Arms teams and was the lead percussionist for the band.
After aging out of cadets at 19, I returned to RCSCC Woodstock as a Civilian Instructor. Over the next few years I continued to help with band, first aid and the drill teams. In August of 2004 I enrolled in the Canadian Armed Reserve as a member of the Cadet Instructor Cadre. Soon after I took the Basic Officers Course at CFB Borden.
I spent the next few years working in the training department and assisting wherever needed while attending training courses including the Military Occupation Course, Lieutenant Qualification Course and Intermediate Officers Course. I became the Training Officer in 2006 for to years and again in 2011 and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant (Navy) in November of 2014. I continued in the role of Training Officer until transferring to 135 RCSCC Admiral Nelles in September of 2015. In 2016 I became the training officer for RCSCC Admiral Nelles where I currently hold the position within the unit.
