ITC will be holding a Phase 1 training session for Recruits Monday 01/05/2018 2000 GMT. The session will last around two and a half to three hours but may be longer if there is a large recruit Cadre.
Note that you will be attending with other recruits and instructors - not with your sections for the night.
Course: Phase 1
Start Time: 1900z
Instructor(s): Pte Sullivan, TBC
Assistant Instructor(s): TBC
The Phase 1 course is a collection of basic drills and theory - the intended purpose of which is to prepare Recruits for deployment in an infantry section as well as provide the necessary information for assessment.
Modules this course will cover include:
Introduction, Battle Preparations.
Six Section Battle Drills.
Formations. Including ARD.
Contact calling and Referencing.
Grenades and AT.
Fire and Maneuver.
Final Live Fire Exercise. (time allowing)
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).
Rotary load/unload procedures - (will be referenced during the P1 training)
Camouflage and grooming standards - make sure you've read and understood what you should and shouldn't be changing though the 'Profile Editor' in-game. Camo cream is provided in section crates.
Illustration of talking big-to-small - with different clock faces: The first lying on the ground with you in the centre and section direction of travel = 12 o'clock; the second a 2 dimensional superimposition onto your monitor, so that 12 o'clock = up, 3 o'clock = right, etc. The object of interest here being the group of helicopters to the left (i.e. 9 o'clock) of the large hangar
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.
We'll start the server at least two hours in advance so you can test your mods if you've not had opportunity to do so earlier.
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.
