CAQC, NOT A BAD COURSE

Just graduated, Pineland was a very interesting to say the least. I was just a little skeptical about the branch at first but about 3/4 of the way through, I know that I made the right choice.......finally

That's good information, headed to the course that starts in December. Been anxiously waiting to attend, what language did u learn and was the language portion difficult. Is there anything you could tell me that would better prepare me for CAQC

I am in the reserves so didn't do the one year course. I will tell you that getting your feet in shape should be a priority, do not blow it off. A lot of AD guys did not make it due to being a ruck failure, something so basic can be so critical. If you are weak at people skills then tighten them up too.

Im currently in the CAQC, best advice....get in shape and stay there. A lot of the time you will do PT on your own, don't waste the oppurtunity to do what works for you. You should know your language already, find every app, website, and outside resource you can and start studying now. My class got shafted and lost about a month or more of language time due to a contract dispute. So be prepared because anything can happen. Oh, and be VERY flexible.

Don't post again until you post an introduction.

TFG,

Don't think we need to worry, that post was from Oct 2012.
