Assuming that the staff obey the rules/law..Thouroughly enjoyed my two weeks, you'll find that the ones returning from ATR's with horror stories are usually the course biff.
I went to Grantham and do agree with the lack of PT cant remember getting any except what was needed i.e. 1.5 mile run 2 practice CFT and actual CFT. Seemed to spend a lot of time (1½ days) practising for pass off parade.jmj said:I personally went to Litchfield (a few years ago now) and had a great time, although the feeling was at the time that there was more emphasis placed on PT there compared to, eg, Grantham. I'm sure others would have a different story.
All the instructors have a lot of knowledge, and they all work together to provide the best training, I know other atr are also good but I agree with Maggs84 this guy was our Section Commander and he is excellent.Maggs84 said:Grantham has the worlds funniest scotish corpral (ballbags).

That was the complete opposite to my experience at ATR(B), my Staff were fully clued up on the TA, one of them had even done about 2 years at ATR(G) teaching solely TA course. Once they found out what the level of knowledge was, they tailored the course accordingly.morpcat said:Did Bassingbourn... PT was so light we went out running by ourselves in the evenings because we felt we were missing out on our usual level of training. Most of the instructors were great guys, but they didn't really understand how the TA worked, what TA people were like, and what training we had done beforehand. Sometimes it was like sucking eggs, other times it was assumed that we were experts and just needed a quick test on subjects we had never touched before.
