Chouest Training Center

Met a chouest mate at the airport that just got laid off/ fired/ de-employed… whatevah, anyway, he said that the training center is letting recently departed officers continue to attend classes at the training center. Is this true? If so, is this a sign that they are not filling classes and might at some point start allowing “outsiders” to pay to attend just to keep the school open?

Like to get some stuff now to be ready for the next boom.

Any thoughts?
