Really? That's what it takes to be a high network individual?

Something tells me that you're not going to last....

And you think this qualifies at high threat? To go to places where they just got hit with missles?

Sorry, but you’re not going to pass M249/M240 quals, let alone any SUT/housework.

I don't see how that translates to high threat, but then again I doubt DOS cares about standards.

Thanks

But were those 5.5 years in a high threat area? As much as I gnash and wail about medics in WPS, I fully understand that theoretically, they meet the BIO requirements. But it's only a matter of time before that theory is tested. Companies are betting that the threat will not arrive, and if it does, that it will be a team effort that wins the day.

Only a matter of time...

^Betting, I don't think they even consider anything outside of meeting the contract requirements.

*paper requirements. Actual fullfillment and what is on paper are often different.

I went to the course with a medic who had zero experience outside of that and worked with probably ten people in a couple of teams whose backgrounds were massaged to fit the requirements. Either that or some colonels had massive PSD teams.

Massive amounts of PSD teams out there for Cols and CSMs... quite a joke, but fuck it, write your BS up.. combat taxi isn't PSD

Barely passes 3rd attempt and is all of a sudden a SME on the 249/240 qual lol. But he just might haha. Heart beat and a passport.

Unless they are a specialty CLIN...

Alpha_Raider_42 29 January 2020 13:28

You're a shooter like everyone else when it comes to re-qual. I've seen every CLIN struggle...difference between "vetting" and "training".

Jong 29 January 2020 14:02

My guess what he's referring to is that some specialty clins will get a little leeway in regards to how many times they can requals.

“Specialty CLIN” = anyone willing to work for 1/2 price and can reply to the recruiter’s email. Passing PT test or shooting standards isnt enforced anymore.
