  • AIT Day-to day?

    I am scheduled to do my BCT and AIT back-to-back. I know that BCT is the intense training for roughly 9 weeks, and you stay at the base throughout. Then I have AIT right after for another 9 weeks. I was wondering how strict AIT is and how it goes on a day-to-day basis. Is it like having a full-time job where you train for your specific MOS for about 9 or 10 hours of the day and then you stay at a hotel contracted with the ARNG or something for the rest of the day? Is it an all day thing and you stay at the base the whole time? In case it's different for each MOS, mine is 92A.
    Thanks for the help.

    92A = Automated Logistical Specialist

    I will start off saying, I haven't gone through the 92A school. So I'm writing from the standpoint of what I have seen at other AIT's, not my experience.

    For the most part the start of AIT is an extension of BCT as far as privileges and routine. In some cases you will stay in 4 man room, in other cases it could be a bay area like you see in BCT. You will wake up early and get your room in order prior to PT. Then personal hygien and off to breakfast and classes. Classes will vary in legth with some ending early in the afternoon and others taking you till dinner with studying after. Free time to begin with is limited and you usually earn privileges by passing PT tests and academic tests. In the beginning you may be able to just go to the PX on weekends with that being extended to evenings and during the week and then off base passes for a few hours to a whole day. It all depends on the cadre and how your class is doing. After a few weeks you can buy laptops and xboxs (or have them shipped from home) to use in your free time.

    Like I said, this is a generic run down of life during AIT from what I have seen, but each experience can be different and someone who just went through it a couple of years ago may have a completely different experience than you because Cadre changed. I hope this helps some.
