You march everywhere.
NCOs yell at you at every opportunity.
You get daily room inspections which you will never pass.
You get the choice of the same 4 variations of meals for the 2 weeks, all of which bung you up and make you fart.
Youâll do a BPFA which you MUST pass or you get RTU.
Youâll learn map reading.
Youâll learn how to handle your weapon safely and then youâll be let loose on the ranges where you learn to shoot, then you learn to clean the feking thing and learn to hate it
Youâll learn first aid.
Youâll learn about NBC and then youâll be given a treat in the form of a lung full of CS gas, this will result in you loosing what feels like several pints of bodily fluids from your eyes, nose, and mouth â youâll learn to hate CS
Youâll learn field craft.
Youâll learn how to patrol, attack, and withdraw.
Youâll learn the art of digging holes, LOTS of holes this you will also learn to hate.
You will get blisters and youâll be exhausted at the end of each day.
All depends where you do it really.
TAFS 2 for the Nationally recruited RLC at Grantham is as Stevie says above. All done in 2 days. Your BPFA is the imprtant part. If you fail by a long way then you will have to go back to be retested before being allowed to attend your Recruits Course.
As to how it works in other Corps and Regional types I am sure its a fairly common syllabus really. All very basic, plenty of drill and some kit care lessons plus the PT on the sunday are the key parts.
Nothing to worry yourself over. You would have done your BPFA on the TAFS1 so you know exactly what to expect, so you should get in some pressups, sit ups and get running to ensure that you dont waste the weekend when you arrive.
when i did my TAFS 2 back in October it was Drill, 'Dont be Ricky, Train Green!!' video, a video where a bloke shoots his best mate during a live firing exercise, drill, kit packing, badges and rank, bpfa, drill, and as we ran out of time we did more drill.
have fun. you'l get to catch up on sleep.
and a few people i did CIC with said they had a 23 SAS briefing on TAFS 2. i got mine on CIC, they can sure make UKSF look boring.
you dug a hole and saht in it, the whole while you had your sword fighting face on. you filled the hoel and went about killing the enemy. then a squirell dug it up, got a disease and spread it.
Dont be Ricky, TRAIN GREEN!!
