I just spoke with branch and they advised me that all AMEDD direct commission officers have to attend DCC. When I asked if this applied to prior service, I didn't really get an answer. My understanding is that other branches count BMT/BCT as a substitute for this. Does anyone have feedback or comments? Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: Just got back from this course and I learned a lot more than I thought I would. There are a number of things enlisted soldiers don’t really learn. Aside from the curricula, I learned a lot about patience and got some tough lessons in leadership. Onto the next one!

2LT (Join to see) wasn't when I went. It's a 28 day course that's a commissioning source. You do take one at BOLC the day after you arrive.

1LT (Join to see) Can you post a sample training schedule for DCC? Like a list of activities that are performed (Example: NBC/Gas Chamber, 16k Ruck march, Confidence course etc..)
I'm trying to understand how much overlap there is in training between DCC and Basic Training.
Thank you.

MAJ that’s the goal, just wasn’t sure what the deal was as it’s a new process. I learned a while back to embrace the suck and make the best of it. Plus - I’ll make more at DCC as a 2LT than I would have made at annual training as a SGT. Just personally hoping it’s not a “shit show” like the other forum I read said it was.

Looks like it’s official. Just got this email even though I commissioned in JAN. Someone’s ears must’ve been tingling haha

I just got this same email today and fired off about 9 emails to my recruiter before finding this post....
If you read the welcome letter on the school house’s website, you’ll see that on week one they take you to clothing and sales to purchase uniforms, then you in-process the Army, go to medical and dental, etc. I guess I’m just wondering what they will do with us prior service who don’t need these things? I have 15 years worth of uniforms, I don’t need any more!
