Phase 1A?

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by shootingbates, Nov 9, 2008.

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. I'm ex-regular but have gone over my time limit so have been told I have to do TA phase one again.

    On the initial assessment (the 1.5 mile run etc) I was told that my unit could do the 1A parts on week day night. Back at my unit they have said that I have to do this phase on weekends.

    Any ideas.

    I know the system is changing due to the whole 'One army' strategy

    Ideally I like to go straight to Phase 1B
  2. As far as I know (and I'm no expert), you have to do your phase 1a at a regional training centre. 6 Weekends every other week. You can do extra prep work at your TAC for the weekends to make sure you are up to scratch.
  3. If you are joining a unit such as the HAC or 4 Para then they do their selection and training independantley of RTC's. However if not you will have to attend selection at one of the ADSC's and then complete Ph1A/B at an RTC as steady state training (weekends) or on one/two week package when available.
