I was offered the opportunity to be an AIT instructor or an AIT Platoon Sergeant. I am trying to find out which one would be more beneficial as far as promotion goes.

It really depends on what you do with the job.....all things equal (similar evaluations), if I were on the board, I'd select the leadership position (Platoon Sergeant) before the instructor position.

SSG Roderick Hayes, I always wish I had done more time as an instructor. Thinking on your feet with motivated students will sharpen your mind and your wit. Teaching is a great way to become a real expert so you can counter the sharpshooters found in every class.

I recently was selected to become an AIT PLT SGT. I believe that as far as promotion goes, PLT SGT would be the way to go. AIT PLT SGT falls into the same category as Recruiter and DS, it's a position of trust, and it broadens your horizons with regards to leadership potential...
BUT if you want to be more hands on with the soldiers, and really focus on your MOS specific tasks then an Instructor is the way to go.

Good Luck!

It might be a good route to becoming a Warrant Officer too. I can’t say for sure but basing this on the other comments.
