TA infantry training

#2
Is there not a wiki page for this?

Phase 1 can take two weeks if you do it during one of the 'Summer/Winter/Midlands Challenge' events (see your PSI for details), more likely you will go to the RTC (Regional Training Centre) for 9 weekends (6 with All Arms and three further just for the Inf). The weekends are every other weekend(roughly - depending on time of year (Summer/Christmas tend to bugger the pattern up)), and there are regular intakes throughout the year - this will depend on your location - again, ask your PSI for details.

Phase 2 will occur some time later (!) and lasts for two weeks.

Hope that helps.

Well, it will take four weeks ish - they just might be spread out over several months.

seriously, it is possible to do the whole lot in one go.

Oh really? how can you do it one go?
Im 16 and was thinking of RMR as they take you at 16 as long as you have left school, but then i spoke to a TA recruiter and he said you can start TA training at 17 and 1 month, is this true?

Beel.

don't know about lower age limits; check out the "joining the TA" forum.

Why TA over RMR, out of interest?

IMO RTCs do not expect to produce trained soldiers, rather turn a civvie into something more ready to take in military training.

Then again, if the RTC dont think you are up to scratch, you will not proceed.

@ Blue9 - old attitude, I'm afraid.

Some on ARRSE, but you'll find that ther are some blokes here that train 3PWRR recruits...

I'd not bother applying for the MI, either.

You have PM, Mycroft.

If it really has changed that much, then I'm glad to hear it Bravo_Bravo.

I'm probably just a bit jealous that new Infanteers spend their time more constructively than we did.

No time for beasting ( well not much... ) . We tell every soldier that they WILL be in afg or Iraq within the next 12-18 months; they tend to accept that and we generally see the maturity and dedication we expect, bearing this in mind.
