Unit Fitness and Sports Officer (UFSO) MITE Course Qualification Code 112436

For military personnel in a position of leadership related to their unit’s physical fitness training and sports program. 

In order to be nominated for Military Personnel Generation Training Group (MPGTG) courses (BFTA, AFTA and UFSO), your unit Training Coordinator, Training Officer or Operations and Training Cell must enter your nomination in Guardian.  The desired serial number and session dates must be entered into the comments field (click on TAB 3 to get to the comments field) in order to ensure you are not simply put on a waiting list.
 
Nominations are normally confirmed about 30 days prior to the course start date.  At that time participants will receive a course loading message that will include the Joining Instructions and specifics on FIN Codes.  They must confirm their attendance with Kathy Dimakos, Training and Project Support Coordinator, National PSP Training Centre, at Kathy.Dimakos@forces.gc.ca at that time.  If members cannot attend the session, they must have their Ops and Training cell change their nomination in Guardian.
 
There are no course registration fees. Participant costs for travel, TD and R&Q are funded through MPGTG for Reg Force members only.  For Reservists, MPGTG only covers the course and their unit covers travel, TD and wages.
 
If you have any issues with Guardian nominations, please contact HRIC.Info@forces.gc.ca.
