wajones542 said:Does someone have any insight on where the FET/POET is now for EO Techs? i have heard that it is all now being done in Borden.... as well as that EO Techs still do the FET in Kingston. My wife will be attending courses this fall and i would like to know where it will be.

EO DP1 takes a very long time and is not run very often he will likely spend a long time in PAT
The EO techs that just arrived in Petawawa from Borden had been in Borden for roughly 2 years. Your husband can put in a request to move you to Borden with him, usually that will occur at your own expense though. I had to drive 1400km round trip every weekend for 2 years to see my wife, all part of the joys of the training system.
EpicBeardedMan said:e: unfortunately your post was moved into a thread that is half outdated eo tech information and half EO tech ( the scope brand, not the trade ) theory crafting. I would send sidemout a PM as this thread is basically no man's land lol.
sidemount said:Pretty much any post that has to do specifically with an EO tech sight really has no place in this thread as its supposed to be about the EO tech occupation

EO Tech sight
The original title was, "All things EO Tech ( merged )". Hopefully, separation of the trade and sight discussions will help.
brandon_sage92 said:Thanks for the reply! I have quite a bit of questions.
First question I have is what's a day to day look like in Garrison look like? I want to have an idea of how it differs from the navy to the army.
Next is how much of a stress is there on physical fitness for the trade? Part of the reason why I'm thinking of leaving the Navy is because of the lack of attention to physical fitness--something I value and something I believe anyone in the forces should value.
How often does an EO Tech shift around from base to base over the course of their career?
Finally is there any kind of PLARs for the QL3 if there one has previous electrical experience?
Thanks for your response.
