I had a look at the work books and thought there was a lot of crap in them. Also a lot of stuff in them that could be difficult to achieve dependant on capbadge etc. For example how many AGC Cpls will be a guard commander? I also was looking at WO one and one of the things you have to do is advise on EO etc. Now, unless you've done the EO & D advisors course, are you really in a position to offer such advice?
Even so, it's a shame that the accreditation has been canned for the sake of an extra week or so in an AEC.
I did the WOCLM last month. You still get a level 5 diploma and level 7 certificate in 'Strategic Management' (or something). This was the pilot course for the new syllabus. The qualification is provided by the Chartered Management Institute. Although the course is still being refined and the content will be changed the AEC at Tidworth briefed that there will still be a professional accreditation for the course. This was echoed by the CMI representative.
The new course is planned for around September time, if you want a definitive answer regarding accreditation speak to your local AEC. Sorry, but I don't know about JNCO and SNCO CLM.
It does cost you though (£13. - Edited to add - one hundred and thirty eight pounds, does anybody know how to get rid of smileys?
