ITC Intend to hold a Phase 1 training session Thursday 09/05/2019 2000GMT. The session will last around two and a half to three hours but may be longer if there is a large recruit Cadre.

Successful completion of P1 is a requirement of all new members and is needed for a promotion to Private (and therefore full 'membership' in the 16AA).
It is imperative you sort your addons prior to this event. Our servers are available at all times and anyone in TS can help you make sure that you've followed the instructions to the letter. This includes the correct re-assignments of interaction and self-interaction keys for ACE (Advanced Combat Environment). Jumping on the server and checking ACRE with another person will minimise the risk of technical errors. If anything is not working very close to the time we're due to begin it's unlikely you can take your P1 and we will start without you.
You should answer 'Yes', 'No' or 'Maybe' (if you provide a reason) to the poll above to confirm your attendance. PM the instructor if you're a 'Maybe', or just require assistance with anything stated here. If you are a 'No' you should post an LOA in the relevant thread here. If you vote 'Maybe', make sure to resolve this to a 'Yes' or 'No' as soon as you can prior to the Phase 1. A significant lack of attendees may cause this training to be postponed.
