Outside of A-100 and subsequent language classes for Alan, FSI offers training for spouses/partners and workshops on foreign service life.
I already attended a two-day introduction to the Foreign Service during Alan's first week, which included an overview of all of the resources available to FSO families, how to research and bid on posts, medical care, employment for spouses/partners, and overseas schools.
This week we are attending a workshop labeled Personal Finances and Investments. Next week Alan will be going to a workshop called Traveling with Pets and I will be going to an overview of transportation and logistics for spouses/partners.
Only two more days to Flag Day!
