    ACISS / Sig Op

    The Qualification Standard (QS) and Training Plan (TP) were approved on 4 Aug 20. Unfortunately, some people still refer to ACISS rather than Sig Op. ACISS no longer exists as a current trade. Glancing at the TP, there is a few differences between ACISS DP1 and Sig Op DP1 but I have not gone...

    Signal tech training - kingston

    POET will be done at CFSCE in Kingston. As for being in barracks, it is very possible that you may be. You can ask to live out, but it may not be granted right away or at all. When I was at CFSCE, the approvals were few and far between so don't bank on it.
