Good luck on the September panel! I was recently notified of my selection as a primary candidate for the April DCE panel. I am also wondering what happens between commissioning and DCO school. The OJAK seems to indicate that we will be placed in IRR (inactive ready reserve?) upon commissioning and will not begin active duty until 7-10 days before DCO school begins. Seems simple enough, unless I missed something.
I also have questions about billets and duty stations that are available to someone with an electrical engineering background. I posted my questions about this in the Coast Guard Units portion of this forum, in case anyone here is able to share some knowledge.
I know the active duty guys will move to their new duty station and behind Work until school. I’m not sure about civilians. I’m also not sure what your EE will set you up for. I’m an ET and if I make it I’d be doing C4IT most likely in the Virginia DC area.
