Hi RAVC entry?

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. Hi, guys a friend of mine is interesting in joining the army as a dog handler in the RAVC, he was wondering what the run time is to get in and where they do Phase 1. He looked online but he didn't find anything, he also tried ringing our local ACO but didnt get through, so i figured id ask here for him.
    He also wants to specialise to become a PTI later on, but on the MOD is didnt show that from dog handler you could train to become a PTI ?
  2. No need to be so coy about wanting to be around hounds, but I'm intrigued as to why you'd ask such a question on a board for RAMC and QA.

    Oh, hang about.................

  3. Trade training for RAVC Dog handlers is at Melton Mowbray I believe. No idea how long it takes to get from initial inquiry to successful application or if they are actually taking anyone on though.

    As far as specialising as a PTI, you either do the class three and two PT quals in trade or you rebadge in to the PT Corps.

    Best thing for your friend is to actually visit the ACO and find out from the horses mouth!
