LRCC

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by chatsharris, Dec 29, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Leadership.

    I've been told that 2011 will be my year to get sent on this wonderful course.

    Is there anything I need to particularly look out for? I'm digging out to make sure I can pass my fitness (Been unable to exercise properly, buggered toe.) and I'm beginning to look into my presentations and looking at what subjects I could do on them.

    Is there any other way I can prepare for this?

    Cheers,
     
  2. Why does every fecker feel the need to complete any course before they even attend the course photo.

    How the flying fukc did we ever manage to pass any fecking thing before the days of cribing off the fecking interweb?

    Man up, get fit, make sure yer kit is in excellent order and read the fecking joining instructions.

    " get yer DO to organise some PLT's ".......FFS, why don't you just get ya mummy to hold yer fukcin hand !!!

    Fitness is defintely a major issue - try non-impact CV if injured (eg: swims & cycles), practice giving duty watch briefs so you are familiar with gobbing off to a group, pick topics which you enjoy for your lectures so you are relatively at ease & knowledgeable (the more you do now, the less stress on course), map & compass re-familiarisation is good, get your kit up to scratch (ask Chico for tips) & as Jim says, if possible try doing a few PLTs.

    Oh yeah, man-up too. :wink:

    Good luck.
     
  4. And fitness. It's fun watching ABs go home on the first morning after they fail their RNFT...
     
  5. Sore toe? Man up, take some ibuprofen and get on with it.

    COI- broke my big toe and had no bother with RNFT 2 days later having taken some, you guessed it, ibuprofen. It's a 10 minute run FFS!
     
  6. 10 mins? You're loafing....
     
  7. Do a presentation on architecture or home-brew, I was assured that they are popular ones when I did mine (albeit at the proper Leadership School) about 500 years ago.

    Honest :twisted:

    Good luck though - and enjoy. I'm sure that even this watered down 'management' course is still a bit of a laugh!
     
  8. If you're fit, have prepared your kit/presentations, listen to what you're told, you're not a total social misfit and show the right attitude you'll pass.

    Aim to get as fit as possible, I don't imagine Erlestoke (2 days practical leadership on Salisbury Plain) is much fun if you can barely scrape your RNFT.

    The thing a lot of people struggle with is the amount of bullshit involved, the staff will expect you to approach this in a professional manner. You may need to swallow your pride to put up with this for 3 weeks. Best advice I can give is just crack on or there's a fair chance you'll fail as a few found on my course.

    It's a good course and I learnt a lot from it. That's not to say you won't be threaders at many points though :wink: Good luck!
     
  9. Just get your briefs in order and run through them with your DO and div SR. The sooner you deliver a few and get them squared away the better. Other than that it's an absolute piece of piss.
     
  10. No it's because they need to be spoon fed every feckin thing to lessen the amount of thinking they do for themselves.

    Just because heroes like you still wear the uniform it doesn't mean you are the omnipotent beings that you feckin think you are.
    The navy might not be like it used to be, however, I'm sure it would still benefit from being trained iaw the relevant training documentation and not rely on pre course reading being delivered by "Some geezer on the interweb reckons I should"......
    Does the new "Conduct after Capture" lecture now include how to hide an Ipod??
     
  11. It's still a Conduct after Capture Lecture...do try keep up otherwise it makes you look a kunt.

    Nice link...remind me what instrument do you play and if you wanna be silly, demonstrate your initial contact drill..you know where you put ya hands up !!! :D
     
  12. Hmmm...I think someone in the Mods tea room is having a bit of fun, that wasn't my link...

    man up, who put the linky on ???

  17. Yes. We had to sit through the most recent version of the video (presented by someone with an MC who sounds like an 'Eastenders' character), and it was most definitely entitled "Conduct after Capture".
     
  18. No wah, I didn't know. Cheers mucker
