Anyone trying to go rifles must go on a 5 day chosen man course and on their course report be found suitable to go rifles......this is normally prior to adsc and additional to all the other selection criterias .....it is for the applicant to see what the rifles are like but if not found suitable by the rifles must go another cap badge or have another attempt
I went on a 5 day course at a rifles camp under the bridge from England to Wales and it was great. I had to do it to get a fitness report to get my adsc deferral lifted and although it wasn't as hard work as ADSC it put my confidence up for passing a hell of a lot more.
Basically just had talks and presentations on certain things, fitness assessment, did some drill (had no idea what I was doing), team tasks and fitness. Made me know I definitely wanted to pursue the army as when I went to ADSC last time I let my head drop when they shouted at me. Whereas when they shouted at me on this I just kicked the aggression up a notch and pushed to see if I could get a good effort from them.
Loved every second of it, even getting woken up early to clean for an hour or so.
