ARNG Basic Training is the same duration as Regular Army and Army Reserve Basic, nine weeks. boot is broken up into three phases, Red, White, and Blue, which are each divided into two levels.

* During Red Phase One, recruits are introduced to Army life, culture, and discipline, and recruits are inoculated, and processed (receive equipment, and uniforms--issue--and all paperwork is prepared and completed). * In Red Phase Two, recruits are indoctrinated as a unit. Soldiers learn to move together in cooperation through Drill and Ceremony, physical training, and are introduced to the obstacle courses. In or about week three, recruits are introduced to NBC training by experiencing first hand the gas chamber. * White Phase One introduces BT soldiers to the M16A2. Soldiers are schooled in BRM (Basic Rifle Marksmanship). With 16 rounds, recruits are required to zero and group. Zeroing consists of sighting in and learning to hit a target (much esier than it sounds for many enlistees); grouping consists of placing six rounds in two groups (a closely arranged pattern) on target. * White Phase Two consists of tower repelling and hand to hand combat training. Soldiers are instructed in and practice rope repelling from a tower, and are coached and directed in hand to hand techniques using pugil sticks to simulate fighting techniques with the M16 without ammunition. * Blue Phase One introduces soldiers to other squad level weapons. Soldiers are instructed in the basic maintenance and firing of the 50 cal. machine gun, the M203 grenade launcher, the M240B and M249SAW machine guns, the Mark 19 tripod mounted grenade launcher, and the AT4 (M136) shoulder fired anti-tank weapon. Additional training is given in tactics and use of the M16. * Blue Phase Two, the final weeks of training focus on NIT (Night Infiltration Training) and troop movement. Part of NIT is the live fire exercise in which troops move through obstacles under live weapons fire.

Basic Training is only the beginning of Army training and indoctrination. After graduation soldiers are moved on to AIT (Advanced Individual Training) during which they receive training for their MOS (Military Operational Specialty). There are three possibilities for CGBT: # For those with a high school diploma entering as Reserve Enlisted recruits, training is an eight-week course at Cape May, New Jersey. # Those with prior military service may attend the condensed Reserve Enlisted Indoctrination two-week course also at Cape May. # Recruits with or nearing completion of their college degree may attend a seventeen-week Reserve Officer Basic Training course in New London, Connecticut. A two-week course is also offered at New London for SELRES (Selected Reserve Officer) training. USMC Boot camp is 70 training days over 12 weeks in the marines its 3 months

NO ONE KNOWS!!!! Actually one was assigned to a unit and pretty much stayed with that unit much of the war. Boot Camp was usually about 12 weeks, then the unit went into advanced training, which could last some time. An Uncle who was infantry stated he didn't know when Boot Camp ended and advanced training started/ended until he was on a ship headed to England.
At the beginning of WWII there was no separate basic and advanced, they were combined into one. Each branch chief (the Chief of Infantry/Cavalry/Artillery/etc), prescribed different length of time for this combined training. I know a little about infantry so I will stick to that. As the US forces got more feedback from the fighting fronts, combined basic/advanced infantry training gradually increased from 8 to 12 to 13 to 15 to 17 weeks in the start of 1944, though this was prescribed, but not totally implemented at all posts. It took time to graduate older classes and implement the new rules.

However the Philippine invasions in the summer of 1944, caused this training time to slip to 15 weeks. Later that year it went back to 17 weeks, but the Battle of the Bulge casualties in December 1944, again caused the slippage back to 15 weeks again. A big part of the problem was the War Department's total underestimation of infantry casualties and replacements. At the outbreak of war, the WD thought 75% infantry replacement rate would be OK, it turned out to be 92%! There is no set answer but your library might have the official US Army History of WWII. See the dark green volumes, and look for the one entitled "The Procurement and Training of Ground Forces". It will give you more detail than I can. Some of these volumes are on-line, but not sure about this one.

Pilots went through accelerated flight classes during the war. Primary flight school lasted 60 hours and secondary flight school lasted 70 hours. Advanced flying school lasted an average of 70 hours as well. If a pilot was needed badly enough, transition training took the place of advanced training and it only lasted around two months.
