do tell....


:wink: It's all very simple really. Just pay attention to all your instuctors and ask the right questions. From an exPSI RMR MERSEYSIDE :lol:

accept the fact that you are going to get bent in half at some point. your kit will be leaving out the door at some point. Dig in. Take stuff on board asap. Don' try to out think instructors.

And remember whatever time saving, corner cutting dodges you come up with, the training staff know them. But its training, its not real bad. It does end too. :D

Add to don't be late - set your watch five minutes early!! Keep a note book on you always and write stuff down to remind you of the things you need to do - THEN DO THEM!!!

Retain your sense of humour when everyone seems determined to separate you from it.

If you don't like what you're hearing - tough. You'll have to do it anyway so you might as well get stuck in. Look after your classmates and they will look after you - it is a team effort!!

By the time you come out the other side you will laugh at it all and wonder why you ever felt it was so bad. Remember, thousands of other idiots made it through before you - how hard can it realy be?

Best Bit of Advice was written on the gym wall at HMS Ganges and we were made to recite it before each PT lesson.

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,

And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;

If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!
Rudyard Kipling
