NBC courses

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. Gents,
    I understand that there is a new structure to the NBC instructor/advisor qualification. I'm really out of date on this and would appreciate a pointer at where I can find out more.

  2. OK eyes down here we go....

    NBC Instructor expires Apr 06
    Assistant NBC Instructor expires Apr 06

    Pre 1999 qualified - have to do whole course again
    Post '99 pre '04 have to do the conversion course (3 days)

    New course:

    1 week - NBC Equipment operator
    1 week - NBC Assistant
    2 weeks - NBC Instructor

    To be completed either as modules or a 4 week course. Must be done in order.

    Can be delivered by Distributed Training by District/Brigade Training Teams over weekends etc.
  3. Nicely put.

    One other problem though is that the training teams are still awaiting deliveray of all the new equipment before teaching. I certainly know that we are, though most of it is slowly making an appearance.

  4. Thanks all - just what I needed.
  5. What is the toughtest thing you have had to do in NBC kit?
  6. Either live in dress cat 3 for 3-4 days at a time...

    or sleeping in dress cat 4R for a couple of nights so it seemed..
  7. No stop in 4R? Must be hell
  8. Eat a spicy popodom. The crumbs fill up your respirator.
