Recently accepted my offer for Sig tech and begin in Feb 10th.
Im aware after BMQ I then have BMQ-L but after that do I have POET and then occupational training?
Also my main question is, while my training for signal tech is for over a year in Kingston will I be forced to stay on base or if my wife who works remotely moved there (on our dime) could we be together?
Thanks and looking forward to my next challenge!
With the recent ability to enter directly as signal tech I would assume that you have that order right. You may have to wait somewhere on a Personnel Awaiting Training platoon before you go on POET. Your experience may vary from extremely fast to very slow.
The best person to find and contact would be an instructor from CFSCE. Since nobody from CFSCE has responded to your question, next week when I get a chance I'll look up contact information for you.
Complete the OJT after POET as fast as possible to get that sweet sweet specialist pay. Ask about the OJT package and get a copy during your POET. Once you get to your unit find a MCpl to get you trained and signed off ASAP.
While I was on my FET (similar to POET) there was one person who failed off course (they lived off base). Being in the shacks is great for being able to help each other with the homework problems. I strongly
recommend staying with the others after class and doing homework with them before heading home.
Talk to your ChainOfCommand to arrange living off base before you go. You may have to submit a memo on your arrival. Yes, it is possible. Will it be possible when you go? Things change so often. Your experience may vary.
Brush up your math with Algebra1 and Algebra2 on Khan Academy:
The Algebra 1 course, often taught in the 9th grade, covers Linear equations, inequalities, functions, and graphs; Systems of equations and inequalities; Extension of the concept of a function; Exponential models; and Quadratic equations, functions, and graphs. Khan Academy's Algebra 1 course is...
Completing this will give you an edge (if you are an extremely eager beaver, nobody expects you to do this... but if you want to be top of your class and maybe get your choice of posting...) :
And more immediately, make sure you are healthy for BMQ
Push-ups, sit-ups, and jogging. I'm sure other threads cover that.
Best of luck!
