TA CIC+ PPS - time off?

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by bleurgh, Jul 14, 2013.

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'm down for the Jan '14 cadre at 4 Para. Holiday booking at work starts soon and I'm keen to book out the two weeks before anyone else gets them. Very new and relatively junior so if I don't get the time off I'm not in a position to negotiate or swap.

    How many of these run per year/when are the dates decided? If I can't make the two weeks, am I looking at a substantial wait?

    Cheers all.
  2. Currently 2 cadres per year so 2 CIC/PPS each year and you'll only get the dates when you start the course.

    If I were you I'd provisionally book the last week or two of June/first week of July and hopefully you've got it covered.
