TA Training Route

Ok, because the powers that be seem to think of a new name for everything these days, can someone provide a definitive account of what recruit training entails? Do TAFS even exist any more? :?

So far I know:



TAFS is no called something the lines of 1 Alpha 1, 1 Alpha 2, 1 Alpha 3 etc depending on how many weekends make up TAFS for your unit.

After that it's all a blur to me. Sorry :-(
You will/should attend:

a TAFS 1 weekend, now called 1A Part 1.
a TAFS 2 weekend, now called 1A Part 2.
then either 4 or 7 weekends at your local RTC or similar, depending on capbadge. (infantry do 7 weekends, OAAS do 4!) This is now called 1B.
Then either two week CMSR(TA) or CIC again capbadge dependant, now called 1C!!!!!!!

Hope this clarifies matters
TAFS = Phase 1 A (Part 1 and 2 like sadsacks says)
Regional Training jobby = Phase 1 B
CMSR = Phase 1 C
Trade stuff = Phase 2

So says my joining instructions... lol.
Yep, MikeL's got it right. Have a gold star.

Infact, take 2 gold stars, you get an extra one for reading the joining instructions.

Carry on like this, and you'll be top recruit.
