Expect a fair bit of stick for asking this but if you don't ask you don't get.

From what I have been told and understand the course itself is 3 1/2 weeks, with screening, beat up and test week. The screening I understand is PFT and CFT, heard the trinaisum in screening got sacked. Is beat up done with your unit or in Catterick?

Just generally would like a bit of advice on what the course auctually entails as what I have been told seems unreliable or outdated.

Much appreciated.

I would suggest the relevant Airborne Regt of your Corps/Service in 16AA Bde is the best place to start. ArmyNet did have some stuff, but it seems to have been removed from 23 Eng and 7 (Para) RHA's sites.
