I am looking to begin training within the next 6-7 months as I prepare finances with savings, liquidating some assets, and eliminating some other debt. So aside from the initial loan for training, I figured out what I need out of pocket for up front costs (gear, examiner fees, ect) I can pay for all of that and have some funds aside after that, but my main concern is maintaining finances for living life during the training. I will have vehicle loan payment and housing/food needs as well. My savings will not supply enough to cover all of this for the 9 months. I spoke with admissions, and was told I basically should not have any other job and need to M-F 8 hour days available at minimum. I understand this and am ready for the weekly requirements and sometimes weekends free, but what I am curious about is about the possibility of having at least a part time weekend job during training. I understand this is going to be mentally challenging and require many extra study hours, but is it possible to have a part time job while training to pay for these life necessities? How else does anyone eat at minimum with no other supplemental income? Maybe I need to postpone further to get more money saved. I greatly respect and appreciate all of the wonderful information on this forum and any replies are very, very much appreciated as well.
