Hi, I've been exploring reserve occupations that can accommodate working people who can't take summer courses due to work/lack of vacation. I'm not in a position where I can take 6 weeks off. It's either weekend training, modular training or changing/quitting jobs to make the reserves happen.
So far, I've only found two occupations that could accommodate a typical job (assuming schedules align):
- Armour Soldier (Weekend BMQ, SQ, DP1, DP2)
- Logistics Officer (Weekend BMQ, BTOP2, Modular CAP, DP1 DL + Modules)
I've nixed some trades such as cook, vehicle tech and med tech due to the need to take summer courses.
Since information about training in the reserves is hard to come by (I'm working off the 2009 army individual training calendar plus this site), can anyone else recommend possible trades where DP1/DP2 can be accomplished outside of summer courses? Feedback on their experiences in taking the non-summer courses would be appreciated. Thanks!
(I wish I had known more about the reserves when I was a student!)
