Possible, if he's making such suggestions. I guess you should be happy that he's helping to guide you on the track that you're keen on

Asking direct questions about CEP will not yield any answers, of course.

Unless the RO has incredibly loose lips for some reason, the only thing I can think of is to see what is said if you indicate you want to go for / apply out for a SH position - if insufficient CEP is a blocker, the RO might hint that it might not be a fruitful venture for now.

But that's not guaranteed; and there are various other possibilities. Lots of potential for false positives/negatives. Think safer to just assume no good way to know.

Geo3 to geo4 promotions have slowed down drastically. I assume you did a mid-career switch, but there are lots of first-career teachers including local scholars with decent CEP also stuck at the geo3 ceiling after 5, 6 years in service or so.

As many pages of recent comments suggest, don't pin your hopes on a service-wide increment. It could happen, but it's not guaranteed or extremely likely. Salary revision policy discussions happen at regular intervals, but they don't always lead to an actual salary revision. With the bean counters tightening the govt's purse strings these days, it's hard to say how this round of talks will turn out.

nevertheless, during these volatile times, its good news, with the extra cash in hand.

I thought all newly trained teachers are GEO 2? What does this mean in terms of the path ahead for me? For the record, I am a very late mid career switcher... Appreciate some advice and insights, thks!
