SAA instructor course (TA)

#1
I’m hoping to go on SAA (the TA version) next year. My unit have said that I should get on to CMCQ and RMQ courses beforehand. That was all going fine until the CMCQ course was cancelled earlier this year and trying to fit it in now is going to be fairly difficult with other commitments. Bearing in mind I’ll get round to CMCQ etc at some point should I just push ahead and bid for SAA or will it make life difficult for me if I don’t have the other courses under my belt when I tip up at Brecon?

CMCQ and RMQ are about running ranges and coaching firing. SAA is about teaching weapon handling. Each can be, and is taught, on a stand alone basis. It is good to have them all, but the order is not critical. Carry on with the course bid, just make sure you are up to the start standards required.

Hi

On the old course you used to get CMCQ abd SA (B) 90 in the same course it was hard graft and eventually withdarwn from the course and these are now done seperately. I know we have sent guys on the course who have not had these qualifications without problem and they have passed successfully. As I understand it the course is now purely training you have to teach SAA.

I would say crack on anyway and enjoy it

Cheers

I did the SAA instructors cse 2 years ago.

1st week is hard graft long days, lots of lessons and lesson planning.

2nd week is all Marksmanship Coaching (CMCQ).

So do not do your CMCQ as you will do it there

I did my SAA Instructors Course in 2002 & the first week was CMCQ & how to construct a SAA Lesson then all the lessons was taught to you how a lesson should be taught. 2nd week some shooting & more lessons

No day off, just used for full revison. on the saturday.

Loads of lessons the best thing one of our lads did was take his digital camera that had a sound recording button, so he left his camera to one side & recorded the Instructor taking the lessons this was fantastic as you could then listen back to it at your lesuire to see how its done to plan your lesson.

Also remeber as much as you can as your not allowed a pam or Lesson plan infront of you for the lesson

to be honest mate there is actually no point whatsoever in going on RMQ, if you plan on going on AASAA as you aquire the same qualifications on th SAA course as on the RMQ course bear in mind however that to go on the RMQ course makes you range qualified the course will NEVER make you a qualified instructor so you would not be able to teach potential instructors / soldiers.

so if you wanna be a "tick in the box" carry on if not go the harder way first and avoid being beaten by the dead wood and overtaking them.

the most sounded army saying EVER "i have been in the army 22 years and im a SGT already" LOOSERS.

THIS IS YOUR LIFE AND YOUR OPURTUNITY IF YOU DONT;T MAKE THE MOST OF IT SOMEONE ELSE WILL BEAT YOU TO IT

and you may well get on the course as a lance jack but considering the fact that your a full screw you cannot take a SAA lesson in that rank.

After disagree with that comment i am AASAA qualified & have been for a long time since 2002, i have been taking weapons lessons as a Lance Jack, working on the Recruit training team for a year & filling in after my time on the team when they was short i also was using the qualification during my trip to sunny climates when i was required

so you will get to use the qualification as a lance jack.
