Is there any feedback for the new basic training?

Just got my date 26th feb, and after reading a thread on the new 10 week basic training a while back, how it is going to be different ect ect, I was wondering if there is any feedback to what it's actually like? After rumors of not having to laundry and others such like were any of them true?

It won't be *too* much different from the old 9 week course. If you want more info, best bet is to either ask your CA or get yourself on an RPC.

As for the rumours of not having to do any laundry, thats a load of bollox. You will still need to do your own laundry.

No feedback as it is only in week 5 at present. Don't concern yourself about how different it is to the 9 week course as it will all be new to you. Best advice is:

Turn up fit and with an ability to complete the 2.4k run in the correct time for your age/gender. One trainee sent home this week for failing his third attemt by 1 second, yes that's right 1 second.
 
Hi,

Unfortunately my 1 candidate to join left on day 3 after failing the Running test (Be warned). However here's a rough breakdown of what will happen in each week.

Week 1 - Arrive Sunday evening - settle in. Monday sign on, initial kit fitting and briefing on life in Raleigh. Tuesday Dental/medical checks, kit marking/divisional interviews, gym intro and timed 2.4 km run. Wednesday Briefings, drill intro, low ropes exercise and kit marking. Thursday Drill, briefings and Gym session. Friday swimming test, kit instruction and briefings. Sat/Sun Briefings, informal sport, church, kit and personal organisation.

Week 2 - Drill, kit musters, high ropes, gym sessions, ceremonial divisions.

Week 3 - Military training (including live firings), Gym Sessions

Week 4 - IED training, gym, Ex daring leap (Pier cellars), No1 suit fitting, ceremonial divisions.

Week 5 - Seamanship, gym, high ropes, weapon drill, ceremonial divisions

Week 6 - Navigation training, Gym, Maritime training (Jupiter point) including over-night stay on ship.

Week 7 - weapon drills, branch lectures, gym, Replanishment at sea (Theory/practical), obstacle course intro, inoculations, guard selection, map/compass exercise. Weekend exercise on Dartmoor.

Week 8 - First aid training, team building exercises, Weapon drills, Obstacle course comp, ceremonial divisions, gym and health briefings

Week 9 - Fire fighting/damage control, maritme familiarisation, weapon training, NGT exam, Exercise bright diamond, Shore leave on Saturday afternoon 1100-1700.

Week 10 - Final fitness tests, drill, Sports competitions, Assault course, key skills, passing out parade, Long weekend leave before joining specialisation training.

Well that's a rough breakdown of your time table. Other stuff will need to come from the guys/grils at Raleigh.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the breakdown SM. What is Guard Selection? I've not heard this mentioned before.

Cheers

Many thanks not worrying about it to a point of panic, just wondering if any thing drastic has changed, I didn't know it's only week 5 of the new course, many thanks for the breakdown SM thats brilliant.

I did the 9 week version, shortly to be doing the 10 weeker too (PVR'd during phase 2).

Looks very similar, with the following additions:

high ropes
IED training
Seamanship
Navigation training
Maritime training
Replenishment at sea
maritime familiarisation

From what I've heard, there's more of an emphasis on phys. This is a welcome addition, as a good few of us were surprised at just how little PT there was during the 9wk course.
