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. Could someone serving with APTC please tell me if you definetly have to be an NCO to do the TA PTI course? I thought you did but someone tells me you can do it as a private.

    Cheers :twisted:
  2. I know an OCdt who's done it, and we're lower than Ptes.
  3. I believe that on the application for the course you must be a LCpl, it doesnt have to be substansive. you can just wear it for the course then take it off after you have passed.
  4. ........and your not even in the fcuking Army.

    Private soldiers are normally granted Local Rank for the duration of the course. I would have thought that your PSIs or your Trg Maj already know this - unless of course they do and just don't want you to do the course!
  6. Yeah, ive not enquired cos there all up to there necks in iraq paperwork.
