“A” SCHOOL Students


Members reporting for training under PCS/TEMDUINS orders or reporting PCS for ET, IT, and HS schools without relocating dependents uill be assigned to mandatory government quarters in the UPH (barracks).  Space in a barracks room is limited and it will not accommodate the maximum TDY weight allowance authorized in JFTR U4710-B.

You will not be authorized to receive a HHG shipment at the barracks.  HHGs must be placed in non-temporary storage (NTS) at the previous PDS location for the entire duration of the training.

Members traveling TDY to “A” school are no different than a member traveling TDY to another work site or to a conference.  There is no full HHG shipment or storage entitlement on TDY orders.
