I seem to remember my TA training was something like the following (roughly)...
each was a weekend, 2 weeks apart.
TAFS1: Everything you need to know about the fact you've just made the best and worst decision of your life.
TAFS2: Useful stuff about Laws of Armed Conflict, Basic Map & Compass, a foresight into training.
RT1: Weapons. Just Weapons. Maybe a touch of Drill. More Weapons. Drinking. Fighting. Bed. More Weapons.
RT2: Weapons, Weapon Handling Tests, 25m + 100m Ranges.
RT3: Battlefield Casualty Drills. Map and Compass. Basic Field Formations and Reaction to Effective Enemy Fire.
RT4: First Field Weekend. Tab to location, do some section attacks, put up bashas, do an ambush, patrols etc.
RT5: CBRN galore. Saturday all dry training then Sunday in the gas chamber...
RT6: Shooting Pt 2. Day 1: 100, 200, 300, 400m Ranges. LSW. Ressie Shoot. Day 2: APWT.
RT7: Second Field Weekend. Tab to location, more section attacks and fighting. Also lessons on section weapons, pyro, etc. Day 2 begins with CFT (did it in August, was a bit evil) back to Camp. Drill practice. Admin, Pass Out Parade, Piss Up whilst RT1 students clean the bathrooms (which you conveniently make a mess like the RT7's did when you were an RT1 student!)
Every weekend is helped along by a healthy dosage of gradually worsening PT, and a bit of drill. And a random classroom lesson. The Friday nights are usually a bit bone with just admin and the same old fire brief. Saturday evening generally involves a lot of drinking, a fair bit of drunkness, probably a fight or two (everyone else's entertainment) or alternatively urinating in somebody (usually the regimental mong)'s bed / bergen / sleeping bag / water bottle etc.
I was on Phase 1 weekend one last week, at malta barracks, Schedule was

Stretchrgj, your way out of date mate.
The new TSC (Trained Soldiers Course) is being rolled out across the RTC's as we speak, some have started, some haven't. The first weekend will look something like Tough-Guys post above. Expect it to weed out the weak early on!!
