Stars and APC

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. Hiya,

    I'm having a look at the Cadet manual and wondered how long each cadet takes (uniformly) to complete each star in comparison to the CCF Basic/Advanced APC.

    Our school CCF year only has 29 training nights in which we are expected to cover the majority of the APC. Blimey that’s only 58 hours of training!
     
  2. I believe the general expectation is a year per level.
     
  3. There isn't a specific length of time stipulated in the book (although a year per level with 6 months for Basic is generally accepted as par for the course).

    There are, however, ages before which a cadet should not pass a certain star level. I'd have to look it up to give you the actual ages (but I think 16 is the minimum to complete 3 star)
