I really love the fact that you said "behoove"
- 0Sep 8, '12 by ScottlinI haven't seen any comments lately regarding the RESERVE component BOLC experience. I am still interested in learning more...since I will be heading there in November for the 4wk course.
I have heard that there is no PT test for Reserve Component officers in BOLC...is this true? (***NOTE: I know that there is definitely height/weight/PT standards for Active Duty BOLC, so please don't post here with that info!!) I heard this from one of the soldiers who attended last year and was surprised, I also noticed many of the comments by soldiers in this thread stated only a diagnostic was performed...so I'm looking for confirmation.
I would LOVE to hear any experiences/wisdom/advice from any RESERVE COMPONENT (RC) Officers who have already attended the 2nd Phase of BOLC this year.
Thank you very much!Last edit by Scottlin on Sep 8, '12

I completed the second phase of BOLC Reserve component (RC) in August of this year. As far as PT test, we all had to take one but before we started, we has to tell them if we wanted it to e diagnostic or record. RC soldiers who were interested in a leadership award had to take a record one. Other than that, it didn't matter. We did ht/wt on our first day there. Several ppl had to be taped. If they didn't pass, they were tapes again at the end of the class. Not sure what happened to the ones who didn't pass the second time around (as far as I know, everybody graduated)...
Please let me know what other questions you have.
