Welcome to Prison Talk. I moved your question to the California forum for better answers. CA good time is complicated, and serving 50% is possible. I hope you get answers from folks who know.

02/2021 release sounds about right if he's 50%. Firecamp will reduce his time to serve to 1/3 as he says. He is probably doing firecamp training now. His earliest release will not change until he completes training and is actually doing fire work. The website will show the date change at that time.

If he fails training he will continue as a regular mainline inmate at 50% and his release will not change.

You both must remember this is "good time credit". As long as he stays out of trouble he gets early release. If he gets in trouble CDCR takes credit away and he has to serve more of his 34 month sentence.
