Is reclass school the same as prior service AIT? Trying to gauge what to expect going to 42A school as a prior service and trying to learn the language.

I heard reclass school for 42A was 4 weeks? How is that if AIT is twice that?

Thanks!

Some Reserve component AITs are shorter than the AD version. Otherwise, schools are not shorter when you reclass. You are just housed separately from the IET students

Thanks! Hypothetically if someone were to transition from reserve to AD in an MOS like that would the sm be required to attend the AD version?

SPC Josh Tharp usually yes. Sometimes RC will let us have some of their slots, but otherwise AD soldiers attend AD versions of the school.

I reclassed to 42A in 2012. The MOS-T Soldiers are housed in a separate barracks, and with the exception of classes and the DFAC, are kept away from the IET kids. My particular class was all MOS-Ts (no IET kids) so they cut 2 weeks off the course.

Basically you will do PT at the barracks/unit each morning, then get released for personal hygiene, chow, and then to get yourself to class. You have class, break for lunch (if you have a POV, you can go to lunch wherever you want as long as you get back to class on time), back to class, and then once you are released from class, you are on your own until PT the next morning.

42A school is not difficult at all. Listen in class, take notes if you have to. It is very easy to succeed. I put in the minimum effort and got Honor Grad.
