TSS Class 1 & Tour

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. My class 1 is due in May whilst I'm on tour. Ive heard of somebody being flown back for it before on Herrick 14 (I think) as its a short course, 5 or 6 weeks.

    Anybody in the "know" confirm this happens?
     
  2. You mean apart from your boss?
     
  3. Yes the TSS Cl 1 is 5-6 weeks.

    Yes you can be sent on a short course whilst on tour.

    However, if you are actually after confirmation that you are to be sent back from tour and for the exact amount of time you are on course can I suggest you either ask Mystic Meg or get your boss to confirm. (For the simple fact "C-C said I could be sent back from tour!" might not carry the same weight as paperwork from your OC.)
     
  4. Nope wasn't after confirmation I would be lol, just that you "can" be sent back from tour for a short course.
     
  5. Before tour the course is in a couple of weeks, got too much pre-tour training going on. And after tour will be the first course of 2013 which then puts me behind my peers.
     
  6. Its funny you know refer to me as a tradesman lol.
     
  7. How does it take 6 weeks to do a TSS class 1 course?

    What do they fill the other 5 weeks and 6 days with?
     
  8. Exam resits.
