Capt Cook was promoted to Captain on 24 May 24, by Det Cold Lake OC Maj Joel Weatherby. 

Capt Cook recently commissioned from the ranks as a Sgt and was attached to RP Ops Cold Lake until completing his Phase training.  On completion of his training, he returned to Cold Lake to continue working in RP Ops. During his time in Cold Lake, Capt Cook has been the Requirements Officer (RO) and the Operations Officer (Ops O).  As the RO, he set up and ran the program with his team that was one of the most accurate programs ever in fiscal year (FY) 2022/2023 for the Det.  As the Ops O, Capt Cook has been creating or updating the Det SOP’s, working with shops for training schedules, multiple other duties and filling in as the RO or OC as required.

Capt Cook will be posted to RP Ops Det Moose Jaw as the Det OC in July 2024.  He will be missed and the Det is thankful for the time he spent here and all the exceptional work he accomplished to make RP Ops Cold Lake a more productive and successful Detachment.
