The Army is looking for Soldiers who want to become part of the cyber branch by earning the cyber operations specialist military occupation specialty or designator 17C. Soldiers have until Aug. 31 to submit their packet for the first school date. The 17C MOS is open to every MOS and ranks E-1 through E-8. Training is 12 months and conducted in two phases. Though individuals are designated one functional area, there will be ample opportunities to cross-train in the other associated skill areas. There is also unmatched potential for additional training. Soldiers should talk with their career counselors and visit the Cyber School's website at www.uscyberschool.army.mil (DoD Common Access Card required) for more information. Soldiers who miss this round's deadline should have their packet prepared well in advance of the next round, which is yet to be determined.
