Right I have been in two minds abouts regs or TA or RM/RMR. I would prefer full time but I just cant take the risk of going into full time training and getting injured, MD'd and having no income so im thinking of part time. I'll do my best not to offend anyone so please forgive my ignorant civvy POV 1. How does TA infantry training compare to being trained full time? Same standard and modules? Will i be as professional and skilled as regs? I hear so many things from people in service.. 2. Are there many opportunties for extedned training in different areas and specialities? Such as P-Coy/AACC? 3. If not. Can i transfer to different units who might be doing that particular training? 4. Can I transfer from TA to other reserve branches such as RN or RMR? 5. If im in say, phase 1 of training and I decide I would actually prefer to do it full time can I transfer into full time training or do I have to leave the TA and re-apply for regs? 6. Tours. Am I only able to do these at the discretion of my employer giving me the time off or do they have to give it to me if I chose to go on tour? 7. Is all TA INF training the same or will it differ from say, 4Yorks to 4PARA? Thank you. I appreciate any replies Mike.
