Abstract
This paper reports results from modelling six engineering officer occupations, comprising approximately 2700 officers. The modelling constitutes a strategic analysis covering a significant proportion of the entire CF officer corps over an extended time period. The forecast "health" of these occupations was analysed with particular focus on the Captain/Naval Lieutenant rank at calendar year 2006. The measures used in this analysis are promotion rates at the captain/naval lieutenant rank, as well as years of service and time in rank distributions. Modelling results indicate that problems can be anticipated in most engineering officer occupations because of the current policy of "below maintenance level" intake. Forecasts of undesirable experience distributions and unequal promotion prospects may adversely affect attrition patterns.
