ARNG infantry thinking of air guard security forces. Federal law enforcement on civilian side. Any chance tech school is condensed for me (recruiter says it might-not sure if BS)?

Recruiter should be able to tell you. If they dont know not really doing their job very well.

He did sir, he said sometime the trainers make exceptions but he was little hazy there. Since I have law enforcement experience from my civilian job and infantry from the guard the time might be cut in half. I wasn't;t sure if you had ever heard anything like that being done in any tech school. Being in from 7 years, when something sounds too good it normally is.

I was ARNG infantry and state law enforcement. You'll go through the full tech school, and you'll need it. The procedures are different, yet similar.

SGT(P) (Join to see) - unless they have changed it, you'll be TDY, stay at the VAQ (Gateway Inn - think nice hotel), and have to show up on time for class in the mornings. Evenings are yours. You can usually get permission from the squadron commander to store your pistol at the SFS armory, and can check it out if you're going into town. But double-check to be sure, I retired 20 years ago, so I'm sure things have changed.

Maybe. Once upon a time, various AF Technical Training schools would permit a "test-out" option for certain blocks of training. I DO NOT know if Security Forces does that or not. As your recruiter is not sure, you might reach out to the SF school house and ask them if there points where someone with LE experience might be able to test out. The worst they can say is no. I'll see if I can find a number for the school house when I get to work this week. PM me in a couple of days if you don't hear anything.

SGT(P) (Join to see) - Haven't been able to find anything, yet. I'll be in the classroom the next couple of days so will not have a chance to check on this.
