Default Needing some more info on IS A and C school.

I leave for rtc in just 9 days, my recruiter was saying that she thinks IS's get promoted to E-4 after A school, is this true? Also, do I go straight into C school once i'm through with A school? I should also mention that i'm going into the reserves. Thanks!

Ok im a active ISSA, graduated out of C school 3 months ago.
Yes we are Auto E-4. you sign a 6 year contract and you make E4 after being TIME IN RATE. so if your leaving for boot as a E1 you will be auto promoted to E2 the day your grad boot. 9 months later you make E3 and 6 months later you can put on your E4.

You will not. Not make E4 while in school. they will not give you E4 at school. regardless of how long your there.

A school is like 3 months and some change and then you will pick your orders and NEC (C School) 2 weeks before you grad. now the C school and your ULT duty station are pared. you cant mix and match them. my c school was 6 weeks. the other 3 c schools are 8 weeks and 4 months. the A school and C school are in the same building.

You will march to class. if you fail class they will set you back.. to many set backs (like 2- 3) they kick you out of the rate.

If you cannot speak in public you should probably learn now.. your graded on how well you can brief.

and when we brief we dont move our feet, or hands. we look around the room and speak with a loud positive voice and we utilize a pointing stick with a Look Point Turn Talk method..

in C school we kinda toss half that briefing style out the window and make it less robotic but the instructors upstairs will teach you their own way really.

As for the Reserves you will not pick orders. you will get your orders cut by the lady downstairs and your reserve center will pick what NEC you get. you will pick nothing. Once at your center its really up in smoke. some centers deploy some do not. some have you do IS work some will make you a Temp Yeomen and you will do Admin paperwork or security clearances.

Thank you so much for responding to me! This really helped me, so that means that i will go to c school right out of a school? And how are you liking the rate?

youll be in holding until there is enough people to make a class out of then when you have enough c school will start.. that all depends on what NEC you go.. some NEC's class up faster based on how long they are.

The rates fine.. the rate changes based on where you are really. because im on the shore and im not doing what my NEC trained me for the jobs a little different. but its rewarding because we are some of the first IS's to do this job.

So I just realized that in my contract it says "IS-must attend "C" school for up to 15 weeks after completing "A" school." So I could have avoided asking this question lol. But Game, thanks for responding to me and letting me know (:
