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:

  1. With all the ho-har this year about our training days / pay etc we were told we'd qualify for bounty having completed a camp, and all MATTS other than a CFT, CBRN, and navigation. It's February and we've been told we now need a CFT - with one opportunity to pass.

    What the deal with your units? Are we the only one who've had this turn around?
  2. msr

    Sounds ridiculous to me. I hope you can make it and pass...
  3. to be fair its not right that they should make a 'u' turn like that, however it is only a cft and you should be able to pass one. :D

    might be worth finding out what MATT level your unit are training too, i'm not sure but at MATT level 3 you only compete a no of competencies.
  4. Nope similar stress here with same conditions. Plus cancelled courses and weekends addding to the nausea. No real opportunity to put it right
  5. 1 hour 30 minutes for a possible £1500 + ?

    Dry your eyes princess
  6. Good moneysaving idea though!
  7. It is stipulated that you must do build up training for a CFT, so probably bull sh1t unless they have factored that in over the next 8 weeks before April.

  8. FFS its only 4 miles isnt it :?
  9. msr

    msr LE

    6 miles

  10. Gotcha

    MSr you of all people should smell a wah :twisted:
  11. Personally I think it should be 10 miles, 25 Kg, weapon not included and an assault course at the end with a shoot to finish.

    For everyone, less proper sick.
  12. to be fair troops, if you cant smash out 6 miles then its a poor show.
    just think of the £1500, grit your teeth and dig in.

    as for beat up training - to quote msr's old favourite 'refer to your PSI' :D
  13. agree, at least the unfit bounty hunters will have a wake up, theres at least 2 on my unit that im sure would possibly die if they had to do the CFT.
  14. I thought said bounty had gone up?


    Any advance on £1700?
  15. That's fun. Next 4 training weekends are range weekends aiming at completing ALL shooting as per the book before starting Live Section + attacks on camp. Not one CFT has been run since April last year.

    Going to be some very unchuffed people if they change the rules before April.
