    Prior Navy trying to go through DEPOT. Had a similar rating to AMT in the Navy and looking to get into A school. What is the process to get on the list for school. Anyone know how long the list is for A school or for DEPOT?

    Once you're at your first unit after you complete DEPOT, you need to be there a minimum of four months, have Command recommendation, and and have your quals signed off. You can then put your name on the A School list for your desired rating. As for the current wait time for A school, I don't have that info at hand as I'm not on a CG workstation right now. Regarding DEPOT, once you complete the recruiting process, your recruiter will secure a date for you. We have a number of recruiters active on this forum. They'll be able to tell you the number of DEPOT dates foir this FY.

    I was in the navy as a AM. I’ve been in the coast guard as an AMT for about 3 years. I went though depot as well.

    AMT is currently staffed over 100%, the A school wait tunes have exceeded 24 months. I will tell you it’s worth the wait and that it’s an entirely different world than naval aviation. If you have any other question send me a personal message I would be happy to help.

    As for DEPOT and A-School - the wait between DEPOT grad and BM A-school was only 2 months between. My A-School dates were locked down the day I signed my contract at the recruiter’s office - no waiting period, no command recommendation, and no quals needed.

    Sounds like you're either a Reservist or AD with guaranteed A school.  What you say regarding locked in dates is true, but that doesn't apply to the majority of CG applicants.
