Hi Guys, Hope to get some advice here to sort out various rumours for me. I am presently serving as a SNCO in the TA and am interested in becoming an instructor with my local ACF. I am aware of the general process but am getting conflicting info re the above. Basically it has been suggested by other ACF officers that I know within the county that I consider applying for a commission. This is on the basis of my previous knowledge and experience that I can contribute and hope to pass on to the cadets. I know that some counties insist on time served as an AI, ITC etc, however, if in due course I was considered suitable for CFCB then I would definitely pursue it. This would be in addition to continuing to serve in the TA. I have been informed that this would be a bar to obtaining a commission with the ACF. In short I could only obtain a commission if I was prepared to resign from the TA. Does anyone have the DS solution or any knowledge of other AI's in this position?
