Just got done with the PSS3, ERT Course the update to WPS in Dec 2012 Good course but it seems the course is getting longer every time State dept adds more to it I was picked up by SOC Completed the course through O'Gara great course they don't have an ego problem like some of the other courses I have been to once you complete the course you will not deploy right away you will have to wait for a slot to open and also wait for your clearance to be completed, Heads up if you have a foreign born spouse you will also have to complete an SF85 for here

I used to run O'Gara's DDM program, they have some decent guys. It's a shame their Training and Services Division is run by a couple of total douchnozzles. The on the ground guys are mostly GTG though.

Not as GTG as they use to be.

They should make it 10 weeks, with the additional 4 weeks being Grammar, Punctuation, etc.

Seriously, you're starting to piss me off. I can't quite put my finger on it but 2 posts in one thread where you mention "no ego" is a tell.

Additionally, quit acting like we're supposed to know who "Robo" is or even care.

I've done a fair bit of instructing and to me, that translates to "My weapons manipulation and marksmanship were piss poor, I could barely walk a diamond and I flagged 3 of my teammates during CQB/RET, but despite it all, none of the instructors were mean to me."

Edit: Sorry SB, I didn't see your post before I typed my reply. No double-tap or dogpile intended.

What is the purpose of making a post like this? His posting does lead to questioning his agenda, but does it warrant coming out of left field and posting a personal attack like this?

Not cool.

Your right that was a lil too much I should have trimmed it down just a bit. But just saying it how I and half the operators saw it. Once again apologies to the board and to the admin.

Hey man, that term is reserved for the few people who have graduated a certain military course. Unless I didn't read your profile right you did not graduate from that particular course.

Left the WPS program (on good terms) in 2012 and looking to come back after spending some time on the OGA side. Yes I know why would I do that but it is for personal reasons. Does anyone have any recomendation on which TO's are currently better than the others. Thank you in advance gentlemen.

Was there a lot of ego there or what?

You will more than likely have to go through another full WPS course again in order to work.

What company did you work with prior to working with OGA? Last I checked, Academi has a slice of the WPS program. Can't remember who else does off the top of my head.
