EpicBeardedMan said:Hey all,
Just switched over to combat engineer from NESOP and leave in a couple weeks for Gagetown. Was wondering how the shacks are and what PAT life is like over there. My chief at fleet school said combat arms trades have to live in shacks for 4 years, wanted to confirm if that was true or not.
I keep hearing things about the sapper indoc on the course and its making me nervous, haha.
Never heard about the 4 year rule.......

There was new shacks going up, but not sure if troops are in them yet.
Maybe NLFD Sapper or someone will be by and can say where the CFSME troops are currently staying.
Hope you're doing pushups, chin ups and situps (or whatever the Engr's are doing these days to
beastimprove their new troops PT. >
PAT's for the most part are staying in the H-Lines with either 4, 6 or 8 per room IIRC. More than likely you will be tasked out as needed.
While on course you will be again in the H-lines, and CB'ed for the first 4 weeks IIRC in which you will work on kit and quarters in addition to all the normal course material
EITS, the new shacks vary on who stays there... generally those on basic and intermediate trades courses will not stay there.... I stayed there on my 6A's and as incremental staff...
