I am a member of my local inf regt but haven't commenced any training as have been having some (now resolved) employer problems. I want to become a TA officer but getting the info on this and been directed in the right direction by my unit has been a f*cking nightmare. I know about the DEPO course but can't seem to get them to talk to me about anything other than TAPO; even then they keep saying 'you'll need to do phase 1 first and then TAPO' - is this right? I am desperate to get on with this; I've been banging my head against a brick wall for months now. Am quite happy to do Phase 1 but I'm a bit worried that I won't be able to get toward a commission just because I'm finding it so hard to get any movement. At one point I got miffed and thought about buggering off - RNR have offered me a commission but if I'm honest my blood is green rather than blue. Can someone please advise me what the hell I should do!!???
