Can anyone tell me what qualifications you would need to be promoted from private to Lcp, as a TA RLC Chef. I have been an Infantry Soldiet for 12 years and I am a class 1 Infantry rifleman. I changed to RLC due to a back injury I gain during build up training for Afghanistan. I am a civilian Chef, so I changed. I have done my class 3 chefs course and passed with flying colours amd gained early entry to my class 2 and passed. I was put up for promotion on the last board but the CO said yes but I would need to do a CLM course. I am not fit to do that course as this is just a Infantry based PNCO Cadre without some fitness. My understanding of the Career Management Path is. Do Class 3 course pick up at some Point within a couple of years. Do a MPC course, which you would have to be substansive L/cpl to get on. Then do Class 2. Cam anyone clarify the process please.
