Would they work? Not having seen the PXR yet, Iâll not comment on SC06. The idea is a sound one, condensing the entire T.A. recruit training into one package speeds up the time it takes to bring fresh blood into the T.A. It keeps people keen & interested instead of the protracted system it normally is & losing people due to them losing interest, it also builds team spirit, both within units & within the T.A. as a whole and all that other good stuff you see in the adverts. Taking advantage of the College & University Holidays, itâs also worth considering schemes for the out of work, allows for continuous, progressive training with little, or no skill fade. Either entire CSM(R) s or blocks of pre ATR/CIC refreshers could be run in these periods. As with Summer Challenge, the provision of adventure training & driver training is a reward for the effort put into training & also serves as an insight as to what the TA can offer. Furthering the GAPS/CMS(R) idea, MATTS, Teaching & testing MATTs during these periods could ease the pressure on units lacking time or instructors enabling them to concentrate on pertinent trade training, it would also centralise records with a Bde database in a central location. Some problems arise though as various posts have shown, so Iâll not repeat them here. To deliver a cycle or block of training as it stands at the moment is a huge task, manpower & resource intensive, organising accommodation, IT support, facilities etc. A system would have to be in place with all the resources, and support needed. Something akin to an ATR (V) would be a start, with a permanent cadre of admin staff and a small core of full time instructors with support from unit instructors to assist during the big pushes such as Easter, playing catch up for GAP training that for one reason or another have been missed out as just one example, as Iâve said in other posts, we, 51(S) Bde, are currently running one now, with another week to 9 days in February, or in general at the normal training cycle Resources such as permanent classrooms & accommodation, stores etc, an infrastructure allowing for issue & exchange of uniforms & equipment would be required. All this would prevent the usual 2-3 days bedding in, that most have experienced at the start of many an annual camp. The ATR (V) idea could be expanded on in so many other ways; potent ional JNCO cadres. Pre Brecon courses, but thatâs a completely different subject. Comments please. Would you attend? Would you like to instruct on something like that? After posting this Iâm off out!
