Apprenticeship Program Question

I was wondering if the community can help me with a question. At this last round of fire hire in Region-5, an Apprentice was hired for me. Seems like a good hand, look forward to him being a part of our Engine Module. However his duty station on the job offer letter is down in the valley at the Supervisors Office. Its about 3 hours away from my duty location, where he is going to report to work and where his duty station should be. Is this some new thing with the Apprenticeship program? Speaking with some fellow Captains on other units, they noticed the same thing with their new apprentice.

Any thoughts on what’s going on?
