Academi: WPS PSS vetting

I was wondering is anyone had any experience with Academi's PSS vetting course. I heard that it was once approx. 42 days in length, but now about 3 weeks. Is this true? Any information would be great. Thanks.

Your recruiter should be able to provide you with all of that information. It will also depend on which level you are qualifying for.

WPPS or WPS

If you are going to the WPS class it will be 42 days with 1 day set aside for admin. I haven't ready all the rule on posting info on this site so that is all i can give you until i finish reading the rules. The WPPS was only 22 days but there has been some changes and it appears there will not be anymore WPPS courses with Academi.

If you want you can PM me and i can give you more info on Academi.

Disregard. This is the 15 post requirement set to keep new members from sending PM's before they get a handle on the site. Someone smarter than me filled me in. Thanks

Academi

If you are scheduled for a PSS or none PSS course and they have contacted you with flight info or your travel dates then you should be good to go. Some of you they will bring into training even if your clearance isn't finished. As long as they get your clearance done, Visa, and you pass training they are going to be sending you ASAP. If you want to leave at different dates than what they are asking you, just tell them what your problem is and they will work with you.

If you are working for IDS or Academi they will be sending you to the same training sight. IDS and Academi use USTC as there WPS training site. All the company's are working together.

In your situation im not sure what would happen. Academi and IDS are partners but they also have to fill different contracts. If Academi is doing your clearance then they probably approved your BIO. So if you graduate and cant leave right away they will just keep you on there books. Other wise you would have to have a BIO / Clearance approved with IDS.
