There is info in Recruit Petty Officer Positions for you.
I see you have joined CS (Culinary Specialist) Moms; you will also want to check out Joint Culinary Center of Excellence Facebook Page and Joint Culinary Training Directorate (JCTD).
The Rating Information Card for CS can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/cs.pdf. (If you get the security warning, it is safe to go there.) That indicates that “A” School is approximately 9 weeks long, but it is about 5 weeks after arriving at Ft. Lee.
All Sailors heading to “A” School for CS spend at LEAST one week at Great Lakes Naval Base for Naval Indoctrination (INDOC). These are classes on how things are done in the fleet, which most get at “A” School, but since Ft. Lee is an Army base, this INDOC must be done before the Sailors arrive there. Sometimes Sailors going to Ft. Lee are in the THU at GL for 1 to 3 additional weeks before flying to VA because Ft. Lee must not have additional quarters for those who are not ready to begin classes.
Since your Sailor will stay in GL for INDOC, you will have extra time with your Sailor PIR weekend. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend.
(Those with the CS rating who will be on Subs go to Fort Lee after GL and then to Groton for BESS. You will also want to join Sub Moms and check out Naval Submarine Base New London Facebook Page.)
I see you have joined your PIR group; I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
