Greetings all, I am soon to be a PSI and wondered if there were any like minded chaps or chapesses lurking on this forum ???? Mainly as a POC for top tips, guiding hands etc. :wink:

Im REME ( dont you dare go for the wah !!!) I will be looking after the trg for the Nat Increment Coys, so hoping to put some worthwhile and interesting trg together.

Be prepared that you may organise the best trg w/e ever, only to find a handful turn up, due to the fact there's foot ball on the telly!

Good luck.

I have been tipped off to this fact, but short of burning their houses like Luddites I feel I will be powerless to a certain extentin forcing them to come in, therefore I need a big carrot if anyone has one buckshi ;)

Just get to know them well 2/4, be interested in who they are and what they do. Get to know them so well they feel like they're letting you down personally when they don't rock up ;)

Quite true, however if the PSI says something like "Fellas, I've worked my arrse off for this, and it's damn good training, you'll only get something like this once a year" and it happens to be true, you'll get a lot more turn up! :D

Sometimes it's a bit hard to distinguish the "bone" weekends and Tuesdays from the good ones, and when you have occasional commitments knowing when the big efforts are really help everybody involved.

OK 12 months on I am now ready to hang myself, surrounded by backstabbing brown nosing regs who are hiding from the real world, and both Reg and TA officers with more Walt skills than Mr Mitty himself. I despair for the hard working guys who bust a gut to get things done. Thank f**k I am out this year, i would rather shove angry wasps up my arrse than do this job. Rant off but take heed if you are offered this post in the next 12 months, in fact PM me if you think you may be !! :x

Never mind. Things will seem a lot better when you join the TA properly.

At least it's only taken you a year to learn - some people remain deluded for much longer. ;)

Finding it hard to retain the fly off clip at the mo, I would work with the TA bods all day long......its just the hierarchy who feel they are speshull, fecktards...................right I need a darkened room 8O

my REME LAD (inf battalion) only had a NRPS staffy and slack handful of NRPS/TA mechanics. What type of unit has a REME PSI?
