    Would this MOS open up for someone who is already in the army and wants to reenlist? Do you have to be a 68W in order to reclass? I am currently not a 68W, I am an 11B trying to reclass to 68C, is it possible? Anyone have any info? My window doesn’t open up until November 2014.

      Reclassed from 11c. Possible

      Johnthan,

      Began my career as 11b, then 68w to 68c. The school os open to IET privates–if you meet the criteria mentioned above on this site, I see absolutely no reason why not.

    Is there currently any incentives for soldiers that reclass? And when does the next school start and how often?

    • Ryan

      Person to talk to is your retention NCO, they will have the most accurate, most recent info.
