Does anyone have information on the upcoming "A" school graduation at GC scheduled in Nov? I can't seem to find anything.

Hi all - Happy Monday! 

McMom - welcome!  I see Mark answered most of your questions - do go through the discussion forum above you'll find lots of valuable info there.  And if you don't find what you are looking for then feel free to ask!

Hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween and a great weekend. 

Our college son had his cross country championships on Saturday.  We normally don't get rain for these but it poured for the race.  The runners were covered in mud & everyone was soaked (including us spectators!).  College son did really well - finished 2nd for his team and 39th overall out of 128.  He moves on to Regionals which will be in Oregon on the 15th.  Hubby & I already made our reservations ;-)

Hope everyone has a great week!

McMom, I see by a couple of things on your page that your daughter is enlisted, and in boot camp, so knowing that - briefly, she will go through three schools in the nuclear training pipeline.  By now, she knows whether she will be training to be an MM (Machinist's Mate), EM (Electrician's Mate), or ET (Electronics Technician).  In Charleston, she will first attend the "A" school for one of the three jobs (Navy calls them "ratings") she's designated for.  The EM and ET schools are six months, the MM school is just over half that.  Following that, is the six month Nuclear Power School, also in Charleston.  The final six months is Prototype training, which is practical training with a shore-based naval reactor plant.  There are two sites for the prototype training; one down the road from Power School in Charleston, the other at Ballston Spa, in upstate New York.

You can find much more detailed info on each of those phases in the links above, in the Discussion Forum (Surviving Nuke School" is a good one, and many others can be found by clicking 'View All' of the Discussion Forums.  I also highly recommend the three links further up on this page, under 'A School' and 'I have been ask to post my son's blogs, etc...'

Welcome to the group, McMom.  Your post suggests that your daughter may be graduating from a college ROTC program, then going in for nuclear training as an officer.  Am i guessing correctly?  Whether they are officer or enlisted makes a significant difference in the training, though there are many similarities.
