This may be a little late in answering the question but my son told me he got picked up for 0622 and it's 30 days.
Field radio operators identify personnel who employ radio to send and receive messages. Typical duties include the set up and tuning of radio equipment including antennas and power sources; establishing contact with distant stations; processing and logging of messages; making changes to frequencies or cryptographic codes; and maintaining equipment at the first echelon.
The digital (multi-channel) Wideband. transmission equipment operator identifies those Marines who are qualified to install, operate, and maintain at the first echelon, the multichannel media equipment and AN/MRC-142.
Here's a question... Will the ones going to 0622 graduate from 0621 then also graduate from 0622? I asked the son but he's is unusually quite about the whole thing. He gave me the description like alex2toes did above and but that was it. He did say he will be staying an additional 30 days for 0622.
Can't answer that. It would seem to me that the beginning of 0622 must mirror 0621 & they run the classes together. There has been rumor for several years now that 0621 was going to be discontinued. Never know what is what until it happens.
Thanks for the information. My Marine graduated yesterday from 0622. When he graduated from 0621 they started classes for 0622 the following week so there was no wait time for him. He said it was pretty easy, easier than 0621. While he was in 0621, they changed his orders two or three days before graduation to include 0622 so there was a scramble to cancel flights, plans, ect. It's been a roller coaster for sure.
