Would one of you be so kind as to put a link to a thread on the above. Regards
Safety supe, ic butts etc is collected under a annual 'ancillary staff' course (3 years if SASC run).What is the difference between Cadet and Army range quals?
Counties are not as relaxed with ex-regs and reserves, as perhaps they once were. Apart from a few very basic RAWs (Recruit Adult Weekends, ie RAW 1 - how to wear uniform, mil org, etc), you are unlikely to get dispensation. Even then they like you to turn up to all of them if you could, as you are getting to know your peers and the county/Bn.if you left the Army today as a Captain your commission can be transferred and you could join the ACF as a captain, similarly it would be ridiculous to make a WO2 a probationary Sgt
Not really sure - it wasn't long after that I decided I could do without the politics and, frankly, bullying at HQ and called it a day. Did a short spell back in the TA and then resigned - life was doing odd things to me and I just walked. From what I understand, it's not as simple nowadays and my Scouts probably get to do more shooting than the average ACF det, albeit mostly with airguns, although we do a fair bit of .22 target and sporter at a local club. If I'm honest, one of the reasons I went to the cadets in the first place was that I enjoyed teaching kids to shoot. I can do that in a much more relaxed and enjoyable way nowadays.What happened to the FB and SB qualled folk? Did you get a conversion of any kind? Or did your quals just expire overnight?
It doesn't have to happen.4.014 Applicants who are serving and who have previously served satisfactorily as officers in the Regular, Reserve or Auxiliary Forces of the Crown or the Naval, Military or Air Forces of the Commonwealth are eligible for direct appointment to a TA GL Sect B commission.
ergo a former capt/ maj maybe immediately appointed (subject to the usual checks and the transfer board approval) a substantive Lt and to that acting and paid rank of Capt/ Maj in the ACF subject to role.
There are many such as yourself..... eating the cake too....Funnily enough, I had the opposite experience to the above. When my local ACF County eventually decided to take me on, I filled out a couple of forms, went through the AOSB Transfer Board and was re-engaged at my former Army rank in a matter of weeks.
They funny part was they hadn't put any thought into what they wanted me to do, so as a result I am "on the books" but without any formal or informal role allocated. So I have nothing to do.
This leads me to believe the shortage of officers is a bit bogus.
The SCC has a list of prior learning that you look through, my range qualification, DIT, COT and CAM and first aid have been accepted. My time as a CPOET means I am an advanced ME instructor, my 22 in the mob also meant I didn't do a weekend square bashing.I phoned Glasgow and had to email the request for my quals and training record.
APCfirstname.lastname@example.org if anyone's interested. Include name rank and number in request.
I have had a change of plan, going to my local RMC detachment which are desperately short of adults. So im not sure what if any quals can transfer to the SCC
