Need Info please

Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere.

Hi im Gary, 18 Years old.

My friend and I are joining the Army (2nd Royal Irish) in 9 months time.

I don't know much about the "In's and Outs" of army training, for example duration of training, location of training ect. I keep hearing different things from all sorts of people. Can anyone please help me confirm what actually happens?

Sorry if i sound like a **** but i am more or less a noob at the minuite.

Also what happens if me and my mate sign up together, will we really go through training together ?

Many thanks Guys !

You might. lol who knows. As to details of training etc......The army jobs website has descriptive entries for each trade\job. Cmbt Inf (which i assume you are going for as u put RIrish) is there and it explains the duration of basic training
etc

hang on a minute, so youre joining but you dont know what your joining?

Whilst there are similarities between the TA and regs, they are miles apart in some areas, training being one of them. A weekend or two week camp is a hell of a lot different from regular army life. I think you need to make a decision on your career path, take advice, go see the careers geezer and take it all on board before jumping in.

how do you know your going in 9 months, if you don't know if your going reg or TA??
