I joined as a Rad Op in '88. After Basic we went to Borden for Driver Training then onto CFSCE for the remainder. This included Land Tactical Training where we learned how to live and fight in the field. With the creation of BMQ-L, LTT disappeared.
I don't know where you got your numbers...

CFJOSG was running Isolation Facilities for pre- and post-deployment isolation for the CAF up to the end of last month and it has now been passed to the force generating L1s. I know the Army was looking at the possibility of using contracted facilities. Maybe this is what this is for.

1. You already know this one
2. Your Signal Officer training is broken into 4 mods for a total of 109 training days.
