Looking for some help/ knowledge, as ArmyNet is not yet up to the job of providing advice to 'simple' questions. Having just returned to the TA after a long gap, I am looking to try to get some rank again... fast! However, the usual problem I am hitting is the standard "you're probably too old for that course" (I am 42 in April)followed by the very clear sense that the person delivering that gem of wisdom, hasn't got a real scooby or any intention of getting of their arses and ACTUALLY finding out. I left as a well qualified (loads of courses) lance-jack 8 years ago and am very fit and not unintelligent. I want to get at least one and hopefully two or three stripes within the next few years as well as get a tour in and pass the All Arms Commando course (which I know I am ok for on age at the moment). If anyone can tell me what age limits there are on the various promotion courses and where I can look to reference these, that would be great! THanks in advance.
