    I will be going very soon. If so any tips? I have been to multiple breaching and demo schools/courses so I am good on that...

    Get the Sapper Leaders Course Handbook
    You have to sign up for a knowledge center on AKO and its listed there.
    I have it but its under my SIPR files and dont want to cause spillage

    If I remember correctly you are a Ranger so I am sure you can make it physically.

    Are you going with your unit or as a solo guy? Most people end up working together to get through the course as you can end up finishing but not having enough points to get the tab.

    edit: most people fail patrolling or cant keep up on the runs. if you are good at learning on the fly and then applying it, you should be good


    also I am not a Sapper am/was a 21A, did a 6 month trainup and gave up my slot for EOCA: http://omems.redstone.army.mil/departments/explosive-ordnance-disposal-training/

    got screwed over and they[EOBC cadre] never enrolled me...however they cancelled my ATRRS date for Sapper School and have been bitter ever since :o

    if you have ako access you should be able to message the knowledge center owner.

    I was at ft leonardwood when they were finalizing the handbook. it has never been under wide circulation and most places pulled its online copy as the gwot progressed
     

  8. it says i have read only access and when I try to register for the knowledge center it won't let me. i'll get a copy though some how.
