How do I get Power Armor training in Fallout New Vegas?

I’ve found some power armor, but I can’t use it yet without training. I assumed that the Brotherhood of Steel would train me, if they like me enough.

I’ve completed the Brotherhood of Steel quest series for the overseer (the original one, I did not overthrow him), but I did not get any Power Armor training. What do I have to do to be able to wear Power Armor?

    Power Armor Training in FO:NV is available at the end of a few different quest chains in order to provide access for a variety of paths.

    From the Brotherhood: After completing Eyesight to the Blind or Still in the Dark, wait 24 hours for the lockdown to end, and the Elder will offer you PA:Training, whether McNamara, or Hardin. (Hardin may ask you to go blow up the Silver Rush before offering training.)

    Alternately, you can complete Arcade Gannon’s follower quest, For Auld Lang Syne – in addition to rewarding you with the unique Tesla Power Armor, you’ll receive the necessary training to use it.

    After the lockdown is complete the elder will give you a quest called “Eyesight in the Dark”. Complete this mission and earn your place amongst the Brotherhood of Steel. Oh, and for the record, you dont have to side with Hardin. I ignored Hardin for the most part. I told him i’d see what i could do but then never interviewed the other Paladins until after the mission for the components was finished and then i only interviewed one of them. I waited like 6 days before the lockdown was over and nothing. Then I zoned out to LT 1 and then zoned back in and voilĂ . Hope this helps.

    The only other option that allows the player to get the power armor perk exists on the pc by adding it via the console command:

    player.addperk 58fdf


    SetPCCanUsePowerArmor 1


    Note you’ll have to restart your game after using the console if you wish to earn achievements.
