Trade Training

It depends on what licences you already hold, whether you are also need DROPs training etc. From enlistment to trade trained can be done in less than 6 months if your unit is switched on and you have the time to spare to do consolidated TSC(A) stright onto TSC(B) straight into licence acquisition and then RLC Driver Class 3, unlikely to happen in this timeframe unless you are unemployed though.

As above ask your PSI.

My response applies if you are joining an RLC unit, perhaps not if you are RLC serving with another Corps (who won't have the intructors in unit to get you through your licences and trade)....

Thing of the past soon anyway.

Once we all get onto the GCM and merely deliver basic mil skills as a 'generic soldier', you won't have to worry about Trade Training.

It really depends what you mobilise to do.

If you mobilise to do an RLC Job - IE do your trade in theatre, then yes a B3 will be requred - thus Phase 1+2+Trade.

However, if you elect to go on tour with the infantry as a Rifleman (as many do), you may well be eligible on Phase 1+2 only and not be required to do trade. I know of people who have taken this route, through desire to go on tour and lack of desire to wait for a trade course to come round. - though this wasn't RLC.

You cannot deploy as an Infantryman until you have passed CIC and attained Grade 1 Infantryman status. Frankly, I have never heard of any Other Arms soldier deploying as a Rifleman in an Infantry battalion.

Force Protection units perhaps, but that's hardly the same thing. Edited to add; I think most, if not all, FP units are now made up from support arms and RAF Regt.
