If I recall Boot Camp was 8-10 weeks, one week leave, E&E Prep 4-6 weeks, one week leave, EM A School 4 to 6 weeks, one week leave. Sub School 4-6 weeks, one week leave. All total less then one year. This on a 4 year enlistment.

Depends on the schooling. Nukes have long schools, an ST not so much. Enlistments for submarines range from 4-6 years depending on the rate (due to the school length).
