The U.S. Army has frozen plans to extend initial entry training（IET）for cavalry scout, combat engineers and military police soldiers in an effort to save money in its fiscal 2021 budget request.
The Army began extending one-station unit training（OSUT）for infantry recruits from 14 to 22 weeks in 2018, a move that prompted Army leaders to draft plans to broaden the program to include armor OSUT, as well as OSUT for cavalry scouts, engineers and MPs.
But Army budget officials said that only infantry and armor OSUTs will be funded as part of the Army's fiscal 2021 budget request.
Formerly as Basic Training, the program of physical and mental training required in order for an individual to become a soldier.
An U.S. Army training program in which recruits remain with the same unit for both Basic Combat Training （BCT） and Advanced Individual Training （AIT）.
OSUT streamlines the training schedule for both BCT and AIT, and helps to produce more camaraderie between recruits.
