  • Going from BCT to OCS

    Hello everybody, my name is Shawn and I will be joining the guard once I finish enough credits to be eligible for OCS. I have been trying to find the answer to the following question:
    After Basic Combat Training, to you go right to Officer candidate School? Is there a break between the two course? I am mainly asking so I know how long I will be away from my wife and son. Thank you all ahead of time and I hope to get some answers!

    Yes, as soon as you return you will drill with the prep platoon and then Phase 0 will start in March.

      It is a little different for every state but generally speaking when you return from BCT you will attend RSPO. In RSPO it will determined whether you will attend Traditional, Accelerated, or Federal OCS. You will drill with RSPO until your class date. Traditional OCS starts in March with Phase 0.
