North Carolina Army National Guard, Military Personnel Accounting Center - Region III
I graduated in March so I'm a relatively recent graduate. Aviation BOLC is split into two phases, I & II. Phase I is done before IERW and SERE and is about 5 weeks long. The course work is simple composed mostly of memo writing and Army regulations. You will qualify on the M9 and M4 and have a 4 day field portion of "patrolling". Then, several months later after you've completed IERW and your advanced airframe training you will do Phase II. Phase II is about 2 weeks long and revolves around the structure and function of the different aviation brigades, battalions, and companies. You may get the opportunity to take Phase II during a hold if you have one that syncs up with when they're giving a class, and if you're already branch qualified in something else you won't have to do BOLC at all which is called a BOLC bypass.
