Anyone been on this course recently? Can you tell us what to expect, or any useful hints or tips?

Thanks in advance.

Just finished SRCC, today actually

Loads of defence writing, some PAD stuff and loads of walking with DCT's (Directive communications tasks) where you have to take charge of a team

some obstacle course stuff and some public speaking, a lecture of your own creation which is now 7 minutes (15 minutes on SRCC) and has to be on anything you want as long as its not attached to your job, debate on your chosen 'hot topic' and a class lecture on your chosen leader

it all adds to a visit to Erlestoke (Salisbury plain), where you walk over 20k and get deprived of sleep, just to see if you can cope with more walking
It is a 2 week course, make sure your kit is imaculate including nos 1's and medals if you have any. Lots of work inc defence writing, PAD's and work towards group activities. Make sure you are physically fit and can pass your mile and a half, helps to start off good. Be yourself, if you are given any work don't put it on the backburner for later. Volunteer for things and play the game, and last bit of advice enjoy it you will probably meet some really good people.
Short and sweet and very good advice. I'd add that if you haven't had to prepare and / give a brief of any description that you should try to take advantage of any time you have to get some practice. Confidence can be a really plus on these things.

Good luck.

Shakey, LRCC will be changing after 1/4/08. Your DO should be on top of what is required and to be honest if he/she does their job they will make sure lecture/kit and your fitness is at the correct level to go on course. Read the RNTM and make sure your DO pays attention to the part 4 documentation !!!!!? Signatures etc etc If the part 4 docs aren't correct you may fall at the first hurdle and be RTU'd.The more you prepare the better your time managemnet will be and you'll have a good time.

LRCC is changing to 3 weeks in duration according to the WO PTI who just left RNLA(E).
...all explained in RNTM 221/07, which is available on the RNWeb. If I can get a copy in DG, then surely... 8O :wink:

to be honest pal, if you've prepared and you have the right attitude, its alright

just go with the flow and you will be alright

when i did LRCC in 2003 we had to do 2 lectures, a 7 and a 12 minute lecture and luckily i was given a PLT which was a 15 minute lecture on FTRS
