I know i should ask my chain of command, blah blah blah. I will eventually.
But, anyone know much about the PTI course?
i.e. How long it takes? Ten days
What you'll be doing? PT
How fit you have to be?Not for fat bodies of jack wagon season ticket holders
Can you do it straight after completing phase 1 training? nope, you are meant to be in for 18 months, apparently
You need to be a L/Cpl to get on the course - although it doesn't have to be substantive, I know of a couple of PTIs who managed to get a local promotion up to L/Cpl for the duration of the course. Depends how desperate your CO is for PTIs I guess!
