Deployed till late 2012, want to BEAR to 35P

I am concerned about

(1) securing a DLI class date for mid-2013 (because I re-deploy in late 2012), and

(2) being able to extend to attend DLI and follow on AIT training (because my ETS is May 2013)

I have a TS and my DLAB is good for all language codes.


When is the soonest I can reserve a seat at the language school for BEAR to 35P purposes? (remember that I re-deploy late 2012, so probably need to reserve a 2013 class start date)

If my ETS date is very close to the start date of a 15-month long language course followed by AIT at goodfellow, will I be able to extend under the BEAR program 36 months so I have the required 24 months afterwards?

INTEL NCO is correct. I will note that it's not exactly easy to always get a class date that quickly to be honest. I missed my original class date because of OIF 1 (granted it was more complicated because 97E - now 35M - went to AIT THEN DLI whereas 98G - now 35P - went to DLI first) and waited 13 months for a new report date.

Not sure if you've found the answer to your question yet, but I ran into this same issue when I bear'd to 35P from Afghanistan in 2010. Branch knew I was deployed and made sure to give me enough time between redeployment and my class start date. About 8 months. Also I had to extend 4 years to ensure I had enough time to complete the training pipeline, 2 years of which were waiverable if I completed training early.

Can you ask to shorten that time between redeployment and the class start date? I'd rather not do too much area beautification...

Sure. You can ask them. You may not get the answer you want, but it's worth a try.
