Potential Army Officer Insight Course 2012

#1
I'm going on one this summer (July) in Bramcote and was wondering if anyone here is going on it too and if anyone can offer any tips or anything - I don't know what to expect at all and my ACA only covered it briefly? Thanks x

I went on one last year mate, don't worry about it too much! Mine was at pirbright so I am not completely sure what yours will be like.

Basically, we did two personal fitness assessments, little 24 hour exercise w/plastic weapons, some presentations, officer mess night, skill at arms lessons and some time on the DCCT! It is a good laugh, nothing too formal. Hope that helps, give me a shout if you want to know anything else :)

I'm going on a PO visit to RMAS in two weeks, also looking for some more info if possible :)
Have you not received any joining instructions? At a guess, you will be shown around the Academy, meet some current OCdts and do some activities which will give you a little of the flavour of the place. It's highly unlikely that you will be tested in any way, made to bite the head off a live chicken or crucified on Old College square. Relax, it will be fun and informative.

I've been on it, and this gent is exactly right.. however I did have to do a PFT, but i'm sure you will cope :)

Yes! and I don't have a chuffing clue what its about, but i'm missing the Nijmegen marches for it this year so it better be worth missing my second year!

I went on one of these last august, just relax and enjoy it! they write a report with recommendations for what to improve on etc for doing selection, and you do some fun stuff.

Another thing, I was put off the army by it for a while, because i didn't enjoy some aspects at all. I am now in the TA however and bloody love it! So even if you hate some aspects of the course stick at it, the "green" activities arnt a real representation of what itl be like.

Have fun!
