Basic Training

My husbands BCT is scheduled to last 8 weeks starting May 1st. Right now he is still in reception. Does the countdown of the 8 weeks start once he is out of reception or from the day he gets there (May 1st)?

Thanks!

Reception is known as Zero week, so.

the "count down" starts once they actually start basic is my understanding.

It starts once he's done in-processing and is with his unit.  It's the same with any other training school as far as I know.  My husband is at MOS school right now, his actual time there didn't start til he was done in-processing and had signed in with his training unit.
