    There are benefits to both. Being a distance learning takes a LOT more time than going to A school. At a distance learning location, you learn through a PDC (or profesional development coach). The PDC, however, is a full time YN (experienced YN1 or Chief) and has thier regular duties to perform. So it may be difficult for them to dedicate vast amounts of time one-on-one with you. The advantage to distance learner, is you get to see what the a YNs normal duties are in a SPO and get used to the pace, before you put on your crow. YN A school waiting list is close to 12-18 months. The benefit to A school is you get daily lessons, geared toward the beginner level, and there is more time for one-on-one instruction. You also graduate from YN A school after only 8 weeks (as opposed to somewhere around 6 months in distance learner). Also at A school you develop friendships with other JR Yeoman, who you may end up keeping in contact with througout your carreer (I know I have); so those connections become good resources to you once you get out in the field. I would have to say there is probably more added benefit in going to A school than not.

    I see what your saying about goin to school could b good but there is definitely benefits doin either or I feel as if you can learn more by doin it in the fleet but in a classroom you make friends jus like you did in boot camp... I've been hearing that YN a school is self taught or self paced is that true? If so what was your experience with a school? How long did you wait to go to school? Can you tell what a typical class day is like? Do you have to pt everyday? If so do you get to choose your own workouts? Sorry for all the questions I jus wanna have an ideal of what I'm gonna b doin when I go in august... I'm super excited and can't wait

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. YN A school is no longer self paced. I went almost 10 years ago when it was self paced. Even so, I still made friends... wasn't like I was in my own little world. I was on the waiting list back then about 6 months. Right now the wait according to EPMs A school list is about 18 months. TRACEN Petaluma does a wellness program that is mandatory for all the students. Your class advisor will let you know what to expect for workouts durring the workday.

    Good luck at A school.
