To put you all at ease on where your kids will be attending "C' School, here is where i know some of the schools are at.
Naval Station Norfolk, Naval Air Station Oceana Dam Neck Annex
St Inigoes (IFF)
Fort Stewart (SATCOM)
Biloxi AFB (Calibration Tech)
Naval Station San Diego
There are no ET C schools that I know of in Japan as was posted in a earlier post.
I hope this helps you all out

In my earlier post I put down Biloxi AFB it is actually Kessler AFB in Biloxi MS.
For "C" School in Sicily the only school for ET's is a NATO SATCOM course, it is only taught on as needed basis so more than likely your son/daughter would attend Shore SATCOM training at Fort Gordon GA. If your child is going to a ship then they would attend a SATCOM course in one of the FCA's (Fleet Concentration Areas either Norfolk or San Diego).
Japan for ET "C" Schools only has a 2M (Micro/Miniature) Repair and Fiber Optic Technician. If your child were to attend this course of instruction after "A" School in my experience they would also be attending another "C" School to be more beneficial to the ship. The whole 2M pipeline (both courses) is 6 weeks.
So in other words all "C" Schools your child will attend after "A" School will be stateside before going overseas or to a ship. If your child should happen to fail the "C" School (yes it does happen) it is a lot easier to modify the orders stateside than overseas.
