Ask your PSI

It's the PSI's job and this is a rumour service...

I can see the conversation:

Boss "Why did you book those two weeks off work?"

Cheese "Some random person on a website told me to."

Boss "So now you want to change your holidays?"

Cheese "Er..."

There were 2 x UOTC subbies on my one.

Memorable quote:

DS: Are there any UOTC guys here?
Bods: Yes?
DS: So why are you here?
Bods: Experience, take stuff back to the otc etc....
DS: Are you sure it's not so you can big time it at the bar "Oh you've done Brecon? That makes you practically a ninja doesn't it..."

There was an OTC type on mine, but he was going reg in a few months. Who knows if it was for bragging rights as said before, but it kept him busy and paid for another 2 weeks of waiting and perhaps the experience will help him along.

There again surely he would get all the Brecon he wanted at reg PCD.

In any case, I'm sure there would be spare slots on a course anyway.

Apologies for the late reply but its the Platoon Tactics Course at the Infantry Battle School. Think PCD, Senior and Junior Brecon (Pl Comds, Pl Sgts and Sect Comds Battle Courses in Regular money I think) all lumped in together for TA Infantry. A good course.

Got to ask this, take it your TA CSM cannot read or not up to the job ???
its HIS JOB NOT THE PSI !!! he should give the PSI the courses bids and then follow on the confim notice....the PSI is there to mentor the TA command of a Coy/Sqn not to run it for you....

So in the UOTC everytime you have a query about course dates you have to go to the CSM/SSM (do these exist within UOTCs or is there only an RSM??) when the PSIs should also have the relevant dates for courses to hand???? Seems like by-passing the CoC!

My Sub-unit's SSM works a civy job during the day and i can guess his reaction everytime someone wanted that sort of info when there are 2-3 PSIs at the TAC during the day to answer those questions specifically, and whose job it is to know the courses available and to load people on them accordingly (in addition to the mentoring role).
I stand to be corrected but i thought it was the PSIs job to do this??
Anyway, quite often I can't get hold of my QMSI/PSIs due to Monday's off, Wednesday afternoons off and Friday afternoons off, so why not ask a question in a forum that can offer some useful info if you are already on the internet???

If he's medically fit, the announcement won't affect him!

But, being the army, there are many other factors that might.

has anyone got the dates for PCT?

trying to plan my summer, and I don't currently have an SPSI before anyone asks!
Careful here - PCT or PTC?

One course will see you doing platoon attacks in Wales. The other one will see you sitting through lectures on service writing. Very different!
