Training time

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by ironeye, Feb 28, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello everyone, I read in the telegraph that the training time for infantry has fallen to 14weeks is this right?
  2. just been out for a 1.5mile run and clocked it at 10min 15sec well happy. going to keep at it.
  3. Pretty sure that it hasnt
  4. Thought you meant basic training..
    They must be writing about the pre-Op training ?
  5. This has been discussed elsewhere. Theyre offering a 14 week CIC to some people who are over 18 who then have to do 8 weeks pre deployment training. They are badged as TA have a shorter contract and the option to go to the regs after their tour. Some kinda effort to get people to the frontlines faster i suppose. From what ive heard not many people are jumping at the idea of going out there with buggerall experiance
  6. Is this 14 week CIC available to people already in the TA or only if you go through the careers office and go through the whole joining process again?
