TA PTI Course and females

#1
Hi there,

My PSI has put me on a PTI course and as female I was wondering what exactly the intake terms are? Whether they are different to the male or we have to complete the same tasks equally.

Looking forward to a response.

Pass the PFA to Male under 30 standards. 44 Press Ups, 50 Sit Ups, 10:30 Mile and a Half. Thats for all ages, cap badges and genders.

If you can't do that comfortably, don't even bother turning up. The entrance standards are a basic level, and the run is done on a track, so if you can't clock around 10:00 on the road, you'll fail the run.

Alternatively, you could just do what a chick from the RMP did on my best mates course last year, which is turn up, fail the entrance standards, then play every card in the book to stay on the course and eventually pass. Apparently, this wasn't limited to having "discharge" from down below which meant she couldn't do the MST, finding her bloke in bed with another woman which meant that she was too stressed to pass the PFA resit, and finally declaring that she was pregnant to get off the 2nd weeks phys. Ended up passing anyway. From what I was told she runs a BMF rip off firm, and was cutting about in PTI belts etc before she'd even done the course! Sounds like a proper tool.

But anyway, I digress, its basic standards for Male under 30.

**** me sideways. I'd like to think you're joking but I fear you're not.

In answer to the OP, Male under 30 standards. We had one chick on my course and she could mix it with the best of them which made her popular and well respected. Expecting different treatment due to gender will not.

And this is why the TA remain a laughing stock.

Strong shout, Spaz; you're quite right.

The sooner the RAPTC pur Regular staff on the TA courses the better.

That way, obviously, they'll have the stones to get rid of students who don't meet the standards. Anything else is of course, as you rightly say, a laughing stock.

Funny really as I knew a guy who turned up and failed everything, he was only put on the course to stop him leaving, God knows why as he was admin posted about a year later.

He finished the course with a pass, but a "not recommended to teach" clause and was up to the Gym Q man to decide whether or not he could take a group solo, in the end he did a lot of markers and feck all else but could still wear his advanced fencing badge.

I also know of a guy who did it with a severe case if asthma

Oh BTW these are regulars I'm talking about not TA

Look, don't tell anybody but I actually saw a reg that was slightly overweight


oh and a girl who cried to get a pass on her APWT, shhh don't tell anyone, else the illusion that all regulars are all super fit superbly admined golden haired dealers of death will be shattered

Check you out on your shiny new reversocycle.

Your post stated that the regulars who run the TA PTI courses should have failed her a few minutes ago.

Which is it?

As I said you edited your post referring to Fox Lines and regular instructors, you ******* penis.

You either edited or deleted your post before anybody else replied.

You penis.

Since mobilising in April, one of the things that I've really noticed is that the quality and attitude of the PTIs has improved massively.

I've found them nothing less than 100 per cent professional, friendly and approachable.

So someone somewhere has got it very very right (in my personal experience).

Lol...I can only imagine that's a true story!!!..Takes the absolute piss that people can wing there way through courses like that.

I should be fine on the course then I can manage all of those no problem!!! Thanks for letting me know!

Same terms.

At the start of the course you need to do the required tests, and as a PTI need to do it to the U30 mens standard.

44 press ups, 50 sit ups in 2 mins, under 10:30 for the run.

ACFT with the full 25Kg

Military swim test.

Did mine last August; PFA standards as described, standard of a male under 30.

Never did a CFT at all, they considered the sign-off from the SMI at local brigades as sufficient. One of the TPs second week was a 3 mile tab with kit and as a fair few were starting to swing like a pocket watch, a genuine 8 miler / 44lbs on the first day would have been interesting...

At no point is the PT on the course at a level that can be described as hard, the only way it could be construed as difficult is if you are not a physically robust person as during the second week, when the TPs kick in, you will be doing 7 or 8 different lessons of PT a day; not hard in their self, but when you are on your 7th warm-up of the day, can be a problem for some people.
