Joining as a STC?

#1
Been reading up on a couple forms about STC and it seems up my street, the whole aspect of it sounds amazing to me and I've always been more of a sprinter and into all that.

My real question is can you join once your in? or can you join as direct recruit?

Im going in as a WS at the moment and have just done my medical? should i continue my application and do basic and phase 2 then have fleet time and see if i can join or go for direct ? my afco is in Shrewsbury and i have ********** he's the man taking me through the process ( he's a sub ) if i ring up will he know what I'm talking about ? I've heard that some afco recruiters don't have a clue what this elite branch is ? if there a info pack anywhere to?

(i know you cant specifically say details as ive been pestering my CCF officer as he used to be in the navy what it is and he cant say, but any detail on stc would be great, thinking about it gets me pumped!!!!)

Sorry. I really have no ******* clue what you are dribbling on about!

Please never tell me you're "pumped" again. It's wrong on every level.

I was recemended for the STC branch due to my superb medical and fitness scores.

Saying that I was told this after my CA sent me to B&Q for a long stand and a lead ladder :shakefist:

Or of course a sort of sandwich with a confusing and overpowering array of bread types and 'dressings' available. Closest I've ever been to a panic attack trying to order a sandwich in one of those places. Their staff must be trained at Chicksands.

When I was in the STC was at the rear of the admin block in Nelson or was it Rose cottage in Terror barracks.

We are talking abut the Special Treatment Clinic, Aren't we?

Read the small print on the menu fliers , 'mechanicaly separated meat'.

Bloody hell your keen. I tried to join STC from the booties, failed the 2 week long briefing course. Went down with an cold weather injury during the navigation phase. I herd that out of the 50 that went for the STCBC only 12 pasded then on the actual course I got told only 6 completed it. No surprise there though.

Good luck if you get selected.

Dont worry about looking for the STC as a career choice, they'll find you if you're good enough.
I'm sure Monty & 2DD have already noticed to be honest.

I still think they should go back to a minimum of three years served before you can apply as opposed to direct entry. The STC chaps on attachment to the RHA i worked with before were top blokes, unlike the newbies these days. Just my honest opinion
