Looking for information on NPTU graduation for class 1302.  An older schedule says late Dec but I understand that's been delayed to Jan.  Anyone with good, specific information about this?

My son is starting there mid Sept. 
I am at work and not supposed to be on there... can anyone tell me here - 

if he is in Goose Creek for Power School and graduates Aug 23rd, can he secure an apartment over the phone/internet/email or must he go there in person during his leave?

I would love to hear from any parent or sailor who can give me a little insight into being in the ELT part of Prototype.  My son is currently at the tail end of Prototype and will be starting ELT I think in August.  I know he's very excited about it as we are but I'm curious how this will impact is journey in the Navy as well as his future once in the civilian world?  Thanks in advance for anything ya'll can share with me :)

Probably asked a dozen times, but..

Do any of you know if there is a formal graduation ceremony at Ballston Spa?  If so, is it anything more than just a "grip and grin" thing?  My wife and I are trying to decide if we should travel there for it.  Complicated by the fact we will likely be moving about the time he is done...June 1st we think.

After Graduating PS in October, my son finally reported to BS on 12/16, love having him back in our home state, I got to see him 3 times in the month of December (woo hoo) he is working every day, but as of this weekend still no "class up" date

Moms/Dads/Families with Nukes in Ballston Spa, NY

andrewsmom/sue- it's not technically a base.  It's an actual Nuclear Power plant that he will train at.    Your son will have to find his own housing,  but they did build some townhouses/apartments  years ago close tot he plant and only navy can rent them.  Many choose to find other housing in the area as well. There is another group on this site that relates to Ballston Spa  and there are other discussions within that group on housing and such

My son will be graduating from Power School at Goose Creek this December and moving on to Ballston Spa for Prototype School.  Any comments on the school would be appreciated.  Thanks:)
