Made a comment about a powerpoint presentation on this site Roadshow Presentation

It states the TA was better than regulars on the new tests (also had this confirmed by a PM)

Whats wrong with that???

To me that would indicate we are spending far too much time on tests and should be doing other training instead.

What exactly do they mean by "warned for operations" in the difference between levels the TA have to take? Because if TA just have to take level 2 unless preparing to go on ops or serving with a reg unit, we won't have to shoot the APWT, which is, frankly, fcuking ridiculous.

No requirement for an APWT unless warned for ops may well lead to very little time being put in for range work, so that when eventually warned off we'll be hopeless and the westside boys will probably have better fire discipline/accuracy.

Still, there's plenty more time for the soldiers to be out doing their pft's etc, I can see this is going to cut out some of our larger brethren who manage fine through CFT and have even been on ops, several times, but I can hardly see getting less than 12 mins on the 2.4k's. Indeed does this mean that you will not be mobilised if you cannot attain green standard, as the bounty is a reflection of availabillity for service?

Will there be elements open to the CO's discretion as with the current batch of ITD's?

MATTs presentation notes said:
There are 3 levels at which MATT 1 is set. The requirements at each level are.
Level 1. APWT & WHT Twice annually.
Level 2. WHT & LF 3 at 25m taken from the Army Operational Shooting Policy (AOSP) introductory shoot at 25m (all Positions). A Gallery range can be used firing from the 25m point.
Level 3. WHT.
TA Infantry are to do APWT as part of their annual training. This is a DINF special to role requirement.
So TA Inf OK. :) Otherwise we wouldn't be able to do any field firing.
