SPC (Join to see) , I am a 25S, 13 and a half years under my belt. Also, I am currently stationed at Fort Gordon. If you want to contact me directly I will give you my contact info and I will tell you all about the school, classes, responsibilities, and what you are most likely to be doing once you graduate. Happy to help, just let me know.

I read youll need a ts clearance but if you dont qualify for ts clearance for lets say unpaid medical bills or studentt loans defaulted or any other ts clearance disqualifiers, you wont be picked for 1c school even. If you were top of your. Class and passed any. Other qualifier for 1c school?

bear in mind during coursework NOTHING you see in the training will EVER be used in active job performance. I trained on Phoenix terminals, the 85 and 95 terminals, never saw one. used the JNN system ONLY during the remainder of my time, which when I went into AIT it was tacked on last minute for my class and the classes that followed us. We were set to PCS and got told on moving day to unpack they were adding the JNN classes in.

I agree with this statement, I had the same experience with the National Guard. I would focus more on the signal theory and signal flow charts these will be a big benefit for your MOS.

They did not have STT training when I went through and I never saw an 85 or 95 even in the inventory. Signal flow will be the most important thing to learn as well as freq conversions. In my unit we had a little fly-away terminal which never got used (no money for bird time). A year later I got a job with a defense contractor that had the STT contract before GD. When I got sent to Iraq there was nothing but STTs.

The school is not hard. You'll do common core first (death by PowerPoint and open book tests, and old equipment that will most likely not work), and then your career tract (tac or strat, which depends on your next assignment). You will be mixed with IET Soldiers during class and if your the only MOS-T you will be class leader. Most of the MOS-I's (mosey's) will be true geeks. I lived off post with my family, but I know the barracks were pretty bad. Augusta is what you make of it, I lived over in South Carolina which is north Augusta. The river walk is nice. Just do your best to stay out of trouble, have a lot of self discipline. Dont mess with mosi's. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Right now as long as you don't fail the main courses and don't fail a PT test, you'll get 1C. They're fleshing us out right now, so all kinds of weirdos are getting through. But on paper, getting a high score in the main classes is your best bet, and get your instructors to sign off on you/recommend you.

When I was at Fort Gordon, all that took to get slotted for the 1C course was to have great scores, and not be National Guard.

SPC (Join to see) - when I went through random classes had people chosen. You need to keep good scores and no negative counseling.

16 weeks of Common Core and then 12 weeks of TAC or STRAT, based on your first assignment. There is a wait time between Common Core and TAC/STRAT for Active Duty, as Reserves and Guard are priority.
