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. Hi all.

    Can someone please tell me what the new rules are about getting promoted? Do you have to have done 2 years in current rank??
  2. Depends on rank, corps or Inf are MFD and course qualified?
  3. RLC, at any rank and fully qualified
  4. Dont know that one, only deal with inf. Look at MS Web on the intranet all the information is on there or speak with your RCMO

    Wouldnt a vacancy be needed otherwise manning looks wrong?
  6. Recomended and qualified
  7. Thanks all.

    Ive had a look on the MCM Div site, the rumour was that instead of 1 year required in rank (sub) you would now need 2 years before you could get promoted. The rules still say 1 so i guess it didnt change.
  8. I presume that since this has been posted on 4 Feb, you were not one of the lucky few this morning. Rules currently; recommended by 1RO and 2RO, min of 1 yr in rank and qualified.

    Rules 'may' change to 2 years in rank at some point in the future but currently 1 year. Rule change is being considered (along with lots of other options).
