Want to get on a language course. Last time I checked their website was not updated. Does anyone have any contact information, I'd like to find out what the score is?

Where do I start? Well fella, what you don't do, is ring Chickers direct with the above statement. It just doesn't work like that. There are a few things you need to consider first.....
1. What language do you wish to learn? Chicksands only teach a select few.
2. To what standard do you need to be trained?
3. Have you taken an MLAT test and acheived a pass?
4. Does your unit have a need for personnel to be trained up to a certain level in a certain language.
When you have an answer to all of the above, then make an application through your chain of command, or maybe speak to the Training Major if you're TA. If anyone has any better suggestions, I'm happy to stand corrected.
It's worth me adding at this point that IF you are lucky enough to get yourself a language course, you'll end up going to Beaconsfield and not Chicksands. The courses at Chicksands are now Diploma length and I don't really know of anyone other than people who are training to be a linguist, getting put on them. Beaconsfield do this too, but also deal with the 12 week "survival" courses.
Why do you want to do a language course? I'm only asking because that's what your chain of command will ask, and "because I do" isn't really going to cut it.
Edited - Mong spelling.
Remind me never to come to you for advice Howayman. You certainly don't sugar coat it!!!Howayman said:
