Recuit Training Confusion

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by hexi_harry, Aug 6, 2009.

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. Joing my local signals unit and have been told that I will need to do a Recruit Selection Weekend at Pirbright followed by 6 weekends at Malta Barracks, Aldershot and then it gets a bit confusing!!

    Can someone clarify if I then do 2 weeks at an Army training regiment (Pirbirght/Winchester) or do I finish my training at annual camp??

    Staff at the unit are telling me different things, just need clarification.

    Also, does anyone have the date(s) for recruit selection weekends in September at Pirbright?

    Well regardless of what you will no doubt be told it all may change and there is very little you can do about it, get used to it early on, that way it wont spoil the ride!
  3. When I passed out a few months back i did: RSW at Pirbright, 6 weekends at Malta, 2 weeks at Pirbright. Now I'm waiting to get booked on a trade course.
  4. This is the correct process, but as mentioned be prrepared that dates & so on will change, as it's the army way. lol
