I'm seriously considering applying for reclass into the 12P MOS. I know I'm fully qualified for reclassification into the MOS; However, I have concerns about the training environment/experience
Personally, my MOS training was DoD wide, but we (IET soldiers) still had to deal with TRADOC Platoon Sergeants and stupid duty/activities after class - it was a horrible 44-WEEK experience, which I DO NOT want to repeat. Moreover, since I'm getting my degree very soon, I would much rather go to OCS than repeating that same TRADOC experience for another year.
On the other hand, I understand that the Corps of Engineers is in charge of the training; but: Does that mean there's no TRADOC involved for that MOS training?
How's the life at the SINGLE soldier barracks? Are they like open barracks, three-man dorms without kitchens, or like permanent party barracks?
Are the barracks only for 12P soldiers or shared by all the prior-service reclassing?
How many times a weeks do you perform PT? How many APFT do you have to take?
Is there guard/staff duty (or taken-away time) after class?
Thank you in advance!
