Mountainbiking Quals

Discussion in 'Sports, Adventure Training and Events' started by dpm_mirkin, Mar 13, 2006.

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. Has there been any change to the 1:6 ratio of taking bods mountainbiking on Adventure Training, as long as you have the MLT qual or above? (If that was legal in the first place!!!!).
     
  2. Although still not an officially accepted as a main "AT" activity it can be added to AT packages if authorised in writing by the CO, and he also authorises the person taking the activity as "competent".

    I suspect that his has just recently changed, maybe due to the amount of pretty serious accidents.

    The place to get clarification is your Bde G3 Adv Tng bloke, failing that a call to LAIT or TAIT will advise.

    Once again the Army caught short, The RAF had identified this "Hole" in the JS scheme and have there own providers.

    The Army failed to recognise Mountain Biking, and then when it did acknowledge the activity by providing bikes for AYTs and CTTs it allowed groups to be supervised by holders of MLT + First Aid cert.

    The SMBLA/British Cycling is the recognised NGB that the RAF are using to provide.
