  • Best time of year

    Is there a good time in the year to ask for schools like airborne?

    Re: Best time of year

    Who knows... I re-typed this post as I mis-read it the first time and answered based on time of year to attend (weather, etc). That might be dependant on the school - and who submits you... I am sure you can check ATRRS and choose the school, look over all of its dates and class size/availability, trend it out best you can, and make an educated guess - then beg and plead for the dates you want...

      He said "good time in the year to ask for schools." I would assume he is talking about a higher chance of approval or increased availability first.

        I'm trying to do a school like airborne.

        Or get my combatives level one certification.

        I thought that there was a time of year that they need to use the resources, but I forgot.

          I mean, there is never a set time to ask... But the "best possible" time to ask would be Oct-Nov. This is when states have just gotten their new fiscal year money and can send people to schools. That's when I put all my guys in for reclassing or "Hooah" schools. 99% of them get what they want.
          Side note- do cool guy schools or schools like anti-terrorism officer. Don't worry so much about combatives unless you are desperate to go... When you get 1LT and go to your captain's career course you will get level 1 certified for combatives.

            Shant be long before I reaccess as a chappy. I need to start working on my packet here in the next month or two. I don't know if they send chappy's to combatives. I don't think they let us do more than the first level.

                    Yeah, its actually a federal regulation that your commander is required to authorize anything you request when requested on that date.
