Comparing basic training in the Regular Army to the TA

#1
Have been giving a little thought to what the differences are in terms of content. 12 weeks basic Reg Army training includes some time for adventure training, a jolly to see some WWII battlefields and a fair few hours of phys, none of which will be included in TA basic (I presume).

Assuming boths basic training will cover the same soldier skills, does anyone have any idea as to how much time is actually spent in comparison?

Well, as someone considering joining and thinking about the training I started thinking about how much of the 12 weeks basic training for the Regular Army was actually spent on learning the soldiering skills and whether TA "basic" really is that much less if it focuses purely on the soldiering skills.

Field exercises take up about a week for Regular training, you don't spend that many days on the ranges. If you have to deal with the physical side of training in your time that must cut a chunk of the training time down. You don't have the "settling" in time of Regular training with medicals and kit allocation etc (I presume they're not included in the 2 weeks Phase1 training for TA), visits with the Padre.

I just wondered if someone knew the actual figures.

I’m guessing the regs spend a lot more time training…

Yes this maybe a wah but most who have replied are Sigs JNCO's, you've ignored my thread on YofS/FofS (TA RSigs Supervisory Appointments, are they needed?)

Your future is fcuked, if you want that route. That wasn't me making up speculation it was me looking at a letter and not trying to start a rumour (its fact for a change). We are being down graded, it doesn't affect me as I can get a supervisory post/commission elsewhere.

Wah someone or get the future post your capable of.

I take it you're posting to the Wah'ers as it's all Dutch to me.
