    Got it! You need to have experience working as a correctional officer, before you can qualify for a probation officer position.

    Makes sense. (I guess)

    CWO

    What is CWO?
    Correctional officer work


    With your dx of RRMS, and having started a DMT early in the disease, you may do well for a very long time.
    That promising, exercise and diet/lifestyle, stress management are paramount in this lifestyle change


    Sounds like a good plan. Sometimes you just have to 'roll the dice', and go after your goals.

    Of course, there are no guarantees for anyone, MS or not.

    Good luck with your decision.
    Couldn't agree more sometimes you just have to go for it

    Thereís a variety of careers that come with that but I wanted to work as a probation officer but looks like I need 1-2 years of CWO service to be considered.

    I guess if they can perform the duties I should be ok in 3-5 years and could transition into a probation officer at that point.

    Corrections officer career

    I was in construction my whole life and after my dx I just donít feel comfortable on scaffolding any longer, so I had to leave that career. I was getting sick of it as well and now I have a chance to chg my career. I am going back to school and done my high school upgrades and got accepted into community justice studies diploma. Thereís a variety of careers that come with that but I wanted to work as a probation officer but looks like I need 1-2 years of CWO service to be considered.

    now Iím pretty much sx free since my terrible dx flare in 2017, tecfidera is keeping me stabilized at the moment, I work out regularly and run, weightlifting and in decent shape and hoping I can stay in this condition for as long as possible. But before I drop a bunch a money on this I want to make a good decision, Iíve read there are police officers with MS and still on duty so a correctional officer is less demanding than an policeman but still need to be physically fit and capable.

    What are some some of your thoughts? Would a Canadian corrections department even consider someone with MS? I guess if they can perform the duties I should be ok in 3-5 years and could transition into a probation officer at that point.

    thanks guys
