TA or OTC

Discussion in 'OTC and ACF' started by walting_matilda, Apr 9, 2008.

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 a student again and have a sponsor for TA officer training. Would it be worth joining OTC as it all fits my timetable?
     
  2. Yes and no to UOTC, Firstly Yes it is a real laugh with some mil training and AT thrown in and suits your time table, but is weak on the officer training, consider that you will be joining a group of people between 18 and 23ish who are on the whole not serious about anything other than partying.

    If you join a TA Unit and take the TAPO course then you will be with a very varied group of people and do a more Officer training.

    If you have never done anything with the army then I would recommend OTC as you have only one chance to do OTC as a bod, and can carry on with the TA afterwards.

    If you are a Trained TA soldier and want to do Mod 2 with lots of fun thrown in then go OTC.

    The choice is yours.
