Army Preparation Course

#1
Hi,

I'm going on an army preparation course in April and was wondering if anyone has been on one before?

Just wondering what to expect?

Thanks!

hmmm never heard of ones that long before. do you go straight to training after it?

guys in my platoon did a 3 week one for the infantry before then went straight to training the next week.

no, it's meant to get your fitness up to army standard. my AFCO have said that after the course I can do my selection and should (hopefully) pass it

no, they do them up and down the country as far as i'm aware.

The Hamilton ACIO run a thing called "R U up for it" every friday in which they basically drill you into the ground doing circuits and games to improve fitness before going to selection or basic. They also do practice and training for you 1.5 on Mondays. Been to it a few times, its pretty worthwhile. Apparently they're one of the only offices that run the RUUPfor it.


If its the same thing I would reccomend going. Gives you a bit of an ideaa of how fit you should be before getting to selection or basic.

I did it, there's tons of pointless academia that goes with them, or a lot of them as far as I'm aware. Morning was phy and afternoons usually drill or assorted stuff for Asdan sports and fitness award. Like making posters and crap....
