USACIMT HISTORY & FUNCTIONThe United States Army Center for Initial Military Training (USACIMT) organization was created by an act of Congress on September 24, 2009; under the US Army Training & Doctrine Command located at Fort Eustis in Newport News, Virginia. USACIMT was created as a separate, stand-alone organization to maintain senior-level oversight of training related issues. USACIMT is the official command component responsible for the Army’s Initial Entry Training (IET); which is commonly referred to as “Basic Training” or BCT for enlisted soldiers. USACIMT develops policies to improve and standardize training for BCT, Advanced Individual Training (AIT), One Station Unit Training (OSUT), and the second phase of the Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC). The USACIMT is responsible for transforming around 150,000 civilian volunteers into Soldiers and Officers annually.
