I am a current BLC instructor. Practice PRT and D&C before you come. We no longer do a week of practice. You will receive a combat speed demo on day 2 and testing will be day 3-6. D&C will be rested day 6. As far as the essays you will receive a block of instruction on military writing. The essays are borderline impossible to fail do to the fact that this is your first final military writing training so the grading curve is in your favor to pass.
No more Land Nav...? Guess everyone relies on batteries and no schoolhouse training these days - good call Big Army! As a former software QA whomever made that call - by advancing these troops, hoping their home units are doing their jobs of proper training and relying solely on technology - just asinine! Why send them to school at all if their units do so well, ask yourself that one!?!?! Solely based on said statements by poster mind you... Where is the logic is my question?
there is still land nav it's just revamped now it's part of the stt portion of the school you'll be in small groups and each person will get one point then you'll guide your group to that point and conduct a class on a portion of land nav and the process will repeat until everyone has gone at least that's what is being done at the nco acadamy on my post. and now there are 5 essays that you do because there's an issue with people in the army not knowing how to write and get their points across, the essays increase in length as the course proceeds also they have also put more emphasis on the unit to train soldiers in basic soldiering task like DNC and pt so their instruction isn't as thorough now. best thing to do is practice now so you'll be prepared when you go.
