Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sorry to pitch in with a purely 'Officer' question.

    I've heard that there are a number of qualifications/organisations you can join or have accredited to you when you become commisioned, or not long after.

    Does anyone know -

    of them
    of a list
    of a way of finding out

    Help apppreciated... always looking for new and interesting ways to pad out the old CV.

  2. I know that there is more opportunity to acheive them through the regular Army, these are the instutes that I know of. Most of these require a substantial amount of CPD to acheive chartership such as the ICE also they are related to which Corps you are badged to. Otherwise I dont really know what acreditation or qaulifications are available, more importantly where to find out.

    RLC-Institute of Logistics (MILT)
    RLC AT- Institute of Explosive Engineers (IExpl)
    RE- Institute of Civil Engineers (MICE leading to IEng & CEng)
    REME-Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
    Institute of Managers?
  3. RAF-Institute of Loafing Whinging Bitches
  4. Yes. The document you want is:-

    Officer Career Courses, Accreditation Guide. (TA Edition). To obtain a copy call Upavon at 01980 618108 or 618113.

    Brief summary: -This must all be applied for within 5 years of completing RMAS

    - Edexcel/BTEC Certificate in MAnagement Studies (Must complete 2 units outside of the army for the qual- Finance and project). The cost is £300 but it seems you can make use of the SLC (strange didn't know the TA could) and claim £175 back.

    - City and Guilds Licentiateship in Leadership (LCGI) - must have completed special to arms commanders course- £45- starts at Licentiateship, once a fully qualified Captain you move to Graduateship, one a fully qualified Lt Col+ you get Membership.

    -Associate membership of the Chartered Management Institute (ACMI) - £90 annual fee. A networkingesque group I believe.

    Hope this helps, more info can probably be gained from your Brigade Training Team. As they gave me the initial lecture (stay awake... don't close the eyes...) and documentation.
