For an 'unofficial' training schedule, click here:

http://marinefamilynetwork.com/profiles/blogs/unofficial-training-s...

If your Marine reported to SOI, checking in and starting training can be two different dates. If a training class is full then Marines wait until the next available class to pick up to begin training.
Also, failure to not have all "issued gear" when reporting to SOI can cause delays so your Marines need to bring everything issued at boot.

Upon arrival to MCT, if your Marine reported in for training on the day of reporting, they do usually get a few moments of phone use before they turn off their phones. Checking in and being assigned gear takes up a lot of time the first few days so if you don't hear from your Marine right away, this could be the reason.

When the phone calls stop or you no longer have communication with your Marine, it would be a good indication he has picked up to begin training. If you are still in communication, then he may be held over to do other needs of the Corps duties (like guard duty) and may pick up with the next class.

Upon arrival to MCT, if your Marine has been picked up to begin training, Marines may usually a few moments of phone use before the phones are collected and locked away. Checking in and being assigned gear takes up a lot of time the first few days so if you don't hear from your Marine right away, this could be the reason.

When the phone calls stop or you no longer have communication with your Marine, it would be a good indication they have picked up to begin training. If you are still in communication by the end of the week, then they may be held over to do other needs of the Corps duties (like guard duty) and to pick up with the next class.

The next 29 days is the "no news is good news" phase.  Best wishes for pick up and some great training.
