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. i need to know how long trade training will be at the royal school of survey, for a terrain analyst,

    i think it's around 6 months, but if anyone could be a little more specific i'd be more than gratefull.


    i've looked on all the army sites, and it doesn't seem to mention lentgh of training.
     
  2. any help ????
