Level 10 is E-1 through E-4.
Level 20 is E-5 (SGT).
AIT will be a Level 10 course. Don't know anything about the field you're asking about.
As far as going to AIT as a MOS-T Soldier (instead of MOS-I, or "initial entry") you need to be ready to be bored and treated like you're back at AIT again. Many of the freedoms you have now will not be there, don't bitch and whine about the formations and lame classes and cleanup and all the other crap you forgot about doing. Cuz you'll be in it again..
-Stay out of trouble. (seriously.)
-do your studying. Even though it's a 10level course, you need to expect to be doing 20level or higher when you get to the next duty station. Ask questions in class, try to learn as much as you can!
-enjoy the time. You don't have Soldiers you have to babysit, let the instructors and NCOs there handle it. You still need to be an example (to the PVTs and other MOS-T) and HELP those NCOs, but your role will be limited.
