Gap Year with 4 PARA?

#1
Hi all,

Thought i'd post this in the infantry forum too.

I've been looking at doing this Gap Year programme with 4 PARA as it looks quite interesting.

http://www.army.mod.uk/para/military_gap_year/index.htm

Just wondering if anyone on here has done this before or has anyone any advice for signing up to this progamme?

I'm in the TA at the moment as a recruit. Would i just hand my notice in with my current unit and then apply to 4 PARA?

My main other question would be the fitness side of things - anyone advise on a training programme?

Any help would be great!

Thanks

you should be able to transfer across, however you will become a new joe! The fitter you are the better, but they will work you up to P coy over the course of 8 or 9 weekends spread over about 3-4 months. As long as your determined and listen to what your being told you'll be fine. The feeling you get when receiving your beret on the |parade ground when (if) you pass is magic mate!
