Big reader of these forums for about a year now and over the last month have been attempting to join the TA as a TAPO. Following my online application some time ago, I was contacted by a YODA (Young Officer Development Advisor) and went to visit a couple of regiments. I've been attending one in particular for a few weeks and have interviewed with the OC who has told me to book myself a 2nd interview at the local AFCO in order to be booked onto ADSC. When I phoned up the AFCO, they refused to book it and said I had to go in for a 'chat' first. Is it standard practice to be put through ADSC before going for AOSB briefing?
