Recruit training dates.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well myself and my mate from work both joined the TA about five weeks ago now. Its a specialist unit. We did our first selection weekend and were promised that we would get soon get the dates for the rest of our recruit training.
    The dates turned up today. We've got tafs 1 and 2 (two weekends) then Part 1b (eight days) then Part 1c (14 days). All fair enough (apart from part 1b being eight days when we were told it would be four weekends).

    Now if i do each element as soon as possible i cannot complete my training until the end of March next year however this would mean taking three weeks off work within a month which just aint gonna happen. Realistically i won't be able to do part 1c until the middle of next year, almost 12 months after i signed up!

    If i could do 1b over four weekends then it becomes much more acheivable but its not done like this any more.

    I can feel my motivation starting to ebb slightly....
