length of the poc course-colchester

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by parapricey, Jun 4, 2008.

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. ive just been booked for my POC in colchester and i havent recieved any info through the post yet.

    1) how many days does the POC last for ?

    2) what happens if u perform badly at the poc?

    i understand that its a assesment to see if the recruit is ready for selction or not.

  2. By POC do you mean the insight course as advertised on the Parachute Regiments web site?

    If so;

    1)friday night until sunday morning


    The insight course is just a course to introduce candidates to the Parachute regiment and what it might be like.
  3. na its not the insight course for definate im doing that at the begining of july.

  4. You like insight courses dont you hahahaha :D
  5. Yeah, i go around the country wasting taxpayers money for a living. Long journeys but the foods good.
  6. Lol

  7. Same order but more planning then me.

    1) POC is from monday afternoon (you do nothing monday, get there, get your stuff sorted, socialise- go off base is my suggestion). You do it till the friday

    2) Nothing as said above. You just don't get sponsorship

    Its different to seeing if you are ready for selection. Its usually prior to sitting the main AOSB board.

    I would suggest you check up 2 week prior to the start.
    I didn't receive anything and in the end rang up. It was sent but must have gotten lost in the post, so I received everything on the friday morning and had a fun time getting a warrent card.
