Reclassification is rare and not something that can be compelled. There is no process to force a reclass. To have it done, your command has to be in support of it and initiate it for you, and from what you've stated, the command is not interested in helping him right now.
Unfortunately, the best way around this situation is to go right through it. By that, I mean that he has to complete his training and, once assigned to his first unit, he can begin to form the relationship with his chain of command that would allow him to get the support he needs to change MOS.
