Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Would one be able to attend the Reg AOSB while serving as a soldier in the TA?

  2. There is only one AOSB for both regular and TA and has been for quite a while. So yes.

    Ah, sorry, my mistake. Thanks.
  4. If you mean attend the AOSB to get into the Regs after a stint in the TA now, then yes; I'm doing the very same this weekend! Best of luck.
  5. Yes, my recruiter actively encouraged joining the TA whilst going through the process.

    Cracking stuff guys, cheers!
  7. Friend of mine did this. Joined TA RE, with a view to doing a tour, went back to AOSB with a view to joining the RE as a regular, at the tail end RMAS got Royal Regt. Scotland, which I think he was fairly happy with ultimately.
  8. A minor point - it's just AOSB. You do the same AOSB to get into either the regs or the TA. Semantics I know but it's important that people appreciate that you sit the same assessment whether you are going full or spare time.
