Enlisting in the month with ANG and trying to game things out with the wife and kiddos accurately (how long to expect me away). Finding conflicting info about basic length for 11B. Most all I read seems to indicate that in late 2019 a transition was made from 14wk to 22wk as the standard. My recruiter thought it was 14 wks but is out of state for the week so seeking some additional input or knowledge. ANG webpage lists length as 14 weeks. Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure all infantry OSUT was updated to 22 weeks already. Publicity pages like GoArmy and other recruiting pages are notoriously out of date sometimes because the pages are administrated by green suiters who rotate through. Some are tech savvy and some are not.

Thanks, I assumed they were dated but figured those in the know and active would be more aware of what actual practice was. Thanks!

Kelby Coffelt with the army, the rule of thumb is that if it is published online open to the public chances are it is out of date. The only thing the Army keeps up-to-date is our regulations. Even the reporting instructions for showing up to schools is usually out of date

As far as I know, the 22 week OSUT has been the rule since November of last year. My experience with OSUT is pretty dated, but I would figure a couple of extra weeks for reception, dead time, etc.
There was too much to learn well when I was enlisted, this is a change that has been needed for a long time.
