I was wondering, as that was the MOS I was in from 1999-2003 during my time in the Army(Ft. Jackson for BMT, Ft. Gordon for AIT and Ft. Drum for Duty Station/the old 10th Signal Battalion). Have there been any adjustments in terms of training for that particular MOS in recent years?

Everything MOS # changed, not sure why, but I believe it was for the new Army and the GSAB, not really even sure what GSAB stands for they got it. A GSAB is supposed to be a Brigade that is self supportive....completely 100%....and I mean from aviation assets all the way down to supply personnel and everything in between.

Anyway, All aviation assets, went from 67 series to 15 series....

Anyone's guess?

This is not a guess as I was involved in the recoding effort for a branch. All Officer coding and Enlisted coding was changed to be identical and standardized on one code, and in every case I can think of, enlisted codes were converged on officer codes. 15 = Aviation branch for Officers (the *term* is Aviation, the numeric code is 15), so all aviation Enlisted coding for MOSes was moved to be some variation of 15.

Signal Branch is 25. Thus, all signal Enlisted coding is moving to 25.

You get some weird ones like 'electronic maintenance'-signal, or ordnance? But generally, the pattern holds up quite well. Only time will tell if it will stay or get changed back.

It doesn't mean the training necessarily got changed-in a high-tech field like Signal, it probably did to keep up with the newest equipment and doctrine, but when 77F (Petroleum) went to 92F, the training didn't change just because of the recoding-the equipment and doctrine hadn't yet changed enough to require a major redo of the course.
