courses when deployed in theatre?

#1
i have heard that it is still possible to do career courses even if you are deployed to iraq on op's. is this true and what courses fulfill the criteria
 
#2
i beleive it wasnt to start with but if you are on career course like Lance jack or full screws course you are ok as i know a few that did that
 
#3
The lads that whent on telic 4 in my infantry cmpy had chance to do there pjnco or brecon whilst there were over there, if thats any help
 
#4
what about skill at arms etc i am already a fullscrew and need to do a few courses before i progress any further

i was on Telic 2 and obviously things were a little different then

it sounds like its literally just promotion cadres so far anyway

its a means to an end. if you want to go further then you have to do the courses.

i have been told before i am considered for my snco i have to do a number of courses. problem being im on my way to telic. now if i can do both that would be ideal otherwise yet again its us on op's who are held up in terms of promotion and the "stay at homes" who get ahead

From experience - if you go as part of a formed sub unit / troop with your own chain of command there is the likelyhood that if you require trade / promotion courses and the tac sit allows you will get them. As an individual reservist you are at the whim of the regular unit you are part of so it will depend on how much they care about your progression.

If your deployed as an indivudal but you were set to do the JNCO course if you stayed back at your unit; how could you get yourself onto a JNCO course when on deployment? Do you need to get a letter from your unit or is it best to keep your head down and shut up as is the case most of the time?

The Deputy Director General (TA) gives a shit.

If your host unit can send troops back for career courses, you should be able to too. But you will be at the mercy of the unit you go to.

If screwed about kick off at the debrief when you get back to Chilwell

Promotion courses should be on that list. What other courses are depends on what your career plot is - If your pencilled in as a future unit PT instructor, then that should be too.

Don't wait until you get back, kick off when Chilwell come to visit.

A fax from your parent unit Adjt to your mobilised unit Adjt will probably sort things out -OPERATIONAL COMMITMENTS PERMITTING.

I think, from experience of guys in our Bn, it is down to the senior officer of your arm/service in theatre to approve the course. Only applies to career courses - eg brecon etc.. Hope that helps. You can always ask to do the course when you come back before/after your POTL and before you are de-mobbed.

BDN,

Sound advice - there were two of us you came back home at the beginning of Nov, attended JOTAC at the end of Nov and de-mobbed after JOTAC in Dec. As long as you have agreement from the SO2 Res (your link with Chilwell) there are no problems. Oh yes, and you can get on 'regular' courses because you are a regular soldier.
