Im currently gravving it up at 45, but after my juniors (january) im thinking of having a bash at OP SAMSON/defence humint course. Anyone been there, done that, or know someone that has, basically to say whether its **** or hoofing!!! cheers lads
Yep, know loads of people that are employed on Op Samson though as Alf says, go to the brief. Take a look at the poster and give them a call. They are NOT SF but the selection is apparently not easy and there is a low pass rate. It's not just the physical side of things, but the mental aspects as well.
aye, i went to the brief, which is why i want to have a bash at it!! but you know what it's like, powerpoint presentations in Bewley hall make K4's course look good lol. just wanted to know if its actually as good as the brief makes it out to be
ETME_submariner, Op Samson is open to all arms of the forces, male & female but it is highly unlikely that you will get anywhere near it until you've had a couple of years experience in your own trade. It is also considered to slow you down for promotion as you are taken out of your trade as well. By all means consider it for the future but at the moment it really is a non-starter if you're still in training.
