I am am an Army National Guard member shipping for AIT sometime in June. I’ve done “split ops” as I attended basic training over the summer. What can I expect at AIT for CBRN training?

Continue to do you PT on your time off. Both Bravo and Charlie company of 83rd Chem love to run and you don’t want to be lagging behind.

You’ll have more freedom than you had in basic, but that can disappear in an instant if you abuse it that freedom. You DS/PSGs will give you every bit of information you need to succeed. Pay attention and do everything in your power to need the standards set out for you.

As far as life in the barracks, I can’t tell you much as I was a MOS-T so I didn’t live with the IET soldiers. Classes though I can tell you about. There are a handful of different modules you will take during AIT, all of which are important. Tests on every section if you fail more than twice on any section you’ll either get recycled or reclassed need of the army.

All of the tests are open book/open notes except Hazmat Awareness, Hazmat Operation and Mass Casualty Decon. These three you’ll have between 2-4 days of class time and test on the last day. These are computer based and will grant you civilian certificates for the class. Study hazmat awareness and ops as best you can as these 2 sections are what get the most failures.

CDTF is a fun day that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

All in all it isn’t bad but it’s still IET training for you. Don’t get too relaxed, learn your job, have fun but remember you are still being watch and evaluated and your first few months in the army aren’t the time to be screwing off and potentially ruining your career.

Good luck and don’t be afraid to ask more questions if you need some help or insight.

Well, because you already did basic training what they generally do is give you a little more latitude then the OSUT candidates going to CBRN School. You will still be required to do certain things but, for the most part, you go to class like any other TRADOC environment you have to do accountability formations, PT time usually and the same rules around passes and not alcohol etc. It will be a lot different than your AIT experience well you know don't relax on the standards and always remember your an example to OSUT folks who are still in phases of training.
