I have received my offer and my posting instruction state my contract starts Aug 16, so I don't know if that means I start training. I have a problem though, our wedding is booked in September in Vegas and we just bought a house. I am one hour away from where I have to go for training. So will they allow me to travel each day? Also what will happen in terms of the wedding plans, will I be proposed to re-book, which I would do.
You should be good to go. Most training bases offer one of two options. If your house is close by to one of many training bases, you will has the opportunity to purchase a bus pass, that allows you to board DND managed transportation. Most of these routes are also used to train future Military drivers, hence the discount on the pass.;
As for time off for your wedding. This is a bit tricky. They may give you the time off, if you present your case in advance. I remember this one guy wrote a 16 page letter, to the base commander, prior to him arriving for his course. As soon s he left the bus, he demanded to be presented to the quarters of the Commander. When there, after knocking for a good 5 minutes, the troop handed the letter to the Gent at the door, turned away, and walked towards the bus.
Few days later, he was pulled away, by two gents wearing the tradition "Escort to the Ceremony" red berets, however he was not seen again. Rumour had it was he got married and went on a really good honeymoon, where he decided to not come back and serve in Germany.
Anwho, I digress. Good luck, and let us know how my advice worked out for you, okay?
