  • Length of Basic Combat Training?

    Is basic training 9 weeks or 10 weeks long (not including reception)? I know they had the change to 10 weeks, but many people and websites say 9 weeks still. Can anyone clear this up for me, or shed some light on the current situation? Thanks for any response!

    My husband's BCT at Fort Jackson was 10 weeks.

      To clear this up for you...my orders said that BCT was 9 weeks and 4 days, that's because the first week starts on a Tuesday. But keep in mind there's some additional time in reception. I was there for a week, others as long as two weeks or as short as three days.

      Hope that helps.

        Also if you are in OSUT it is a little shorter because you don't have to worry about handing in gear, cleaning up barracks, packing, etc...
