Someone mentioned in a previous post that training will not start until January. My hiring manager did tell me there are 7 phases for EP; however, I don’t think all 7 are completed within the first year.

I start in EO on December 9th. Yesterday I asked my new manager if he knew anything about the location and timing of our training. He said he didn't know and "we have to get past any shutdown issues."

Do you know what the policy is for travel home on weekends? Do they assist with the cost of traveling home? If not, do they pay for your hotel over the weekend?

Do you have dates for your second phase of training yet? Just curious how far apart they will be.

Edit: also, is a rental car provided? I've heard it varies depending on if you're staying in city center (with easy access to restaurants) or not.

You can go home on weekends but that is on you financially, getting there and coming back to the hotel minus the per diem you get in meals. The hotel will be booked the whole time you are in training, even if you aren't always staying there. Also, as far as a rental car, almost all the time, but there are few exceptions, they will not pay for a rental car. They will pay for mileage as far as you driving your personal vehicle to the training and from training.
