Prototype is 6 months for everybody.Fred said:What is the shortest amount of time possible for someone to make it through prototype?
Technically, Prototype is 25 weeks, so roughly 6 mos. Prototype IS self-paced, which is how people qualify at different paces. The schedule should be the same at Ballston Spa as it is here in Charleston.Fred said:Humm.....
I am so confused about this nuke stuff. My husbands orders are not even for 6mo. They are for 5mo and 14 days. They also state Prototype is self paced and he can finish sooner if all watch qualifications are met. After he finishes Prototype he has orders to meet a deployed carrier for about a month.
We would like to "plan" a trip IF he can finish early. Otherwise he only has a week off before he has to meet the ship.
He is going to Balston Spa, not sure if that makes a difference.
He is neither, he is an aviator, lol. He just told me he is in a little different track than Surface or Sub O's. He will find out how quickly he can finish when he gets up there. Thanks for your help.NukeWife said:Technically, Your hubby is a surface officer? Just trying to clarify, b/c the surface officers do things a little differently than the sub officers and enlisteds. For example, the surface guys go out to sea for (I think) 18 mos before coming here, while the subbies come here before hitting the fleet.
I will ask my hubby is he can clarify when he gets home this afternoon!
Honour_Class said:Is he in PXO quals? They pretty much get their own schedule tailored to their needs. Yes, when they finish they are off to the carrier as soon as possible. There are no "qualified" watches, profiency phase or other nonsense for them. I recently qualified in the same section as three PXO. It was interesting.
