I have a sensible question, and yes I know this site is not the best place for that. A friend of mine is currently serving in warmer climes and had a concern as to the level of training they had received prior to their tour. They are non-infantry and carry out a supporting role to many other units efforts. Trying to keep PERSEC under control here. Can anyone advise me what may be the minimums of training required for a TA soldier deployed in a non infantry role prior to an Operational tour. I am trying to put their mind at rest as they feel they have far less training than other TA soldiers deployed alongside in the same roles, comparisons of pre training show huge differences and that has raised the question. Many thanks for any sensible answers and begridging thanks for the sarcastic ones as well.
