I'm planning to leave the regular Army soon, after eight years service, and doing the transfer to TA/Army Reserve. Does anyone know if it's possible to actually start your training with your TA unit once you've signed off? Such as doing any relevant trade courses during your last 12-months, so when you finish with the regulars you are pretty much good to go in your new TA unit. What got me thinking about it was that I'm keen to try for 4 PARA and would like to get CIC and P Coy done while I still have all the good resources of serving (ie. great gym, running routes, time to train, etc.). Perhaps even be allowed on the regular AAPPS in order to go to that Bn. It would definitely be a bonus doing normal work within a TA unit rather than recruit training again once sorting my new civvie life out.
