Default Ops School after A School

Hi- my son is currently in A school in San Diego. He mentioned that after A school, they would be doing Ops School. Can anyone tell me about how long this second school lasts, how long recent hold times have been for Ops School and last if there is a graduation for A School itself...My son can't seem to figure out if graduation is after A school or this Ops school...Hoping one of you folks might know.

By the way, the Navy Base at Point Loma where they go to school is BEAUTIFUL!

The Sonar Operators Course is between 6-8 weeks.
Hold times change from month to month depending on how many students the school is pushing though.
There would be a graduation for both, although it's not anything like Boot Camp graduation. It's usually held in the classroom and they may take a picture somewhere on base. There isn't much pomp and circumstance to A-school graduation.
