Take us through it, step by step! I get that it is tailored to individual requirements but what happened for you each day?

Bit blurred! Any chance of a clearer shot? So now in single person rooms. How has the course been- relaxed or treated like a recruit? Any ‘must haves’ not on kit list? Can I get away without bringing an ironing board!?

So, got my invite to the TaRC and got some JI’s for it.
Got to call on Friday afternoon to check it is still going ahead..... coronavirus!
Everything I have received so far suggests it is a 1 day course (offer of service letter included) but I don’t see how I can do the inevitable admin, attest, re-kit, med/dent, CCS/MOD 1...... all in a single day. Thoughts?

Absolutely no chance getting it all done in one day! A lot of people have been sent home from Halton everyone who was on holding flight and all other camps are on minimal staffing I was supposed to start at my new base today and I’ve been told to not go in! There is massive kitting shortages as kit is from China! The lads who were supposed to start there phase two training has also been suspended!

What is the fitness test on the TaRC course. Is it the mile and a half or the bleep test? And when on the course do you do it?

Thanks

Bleep test sit ups and press ups you are not allowed to go over the amount you are set to do get to your level then stop! And it’s on the second day about 3ish

Once you’ve finished specialist training do you get to chose where you get based?

My son is hoping to rejoin the RAF. He voluntarily withdrew from Basic as he wasn't able to follow his chosen career path (he has now found out that he can). Does he have to reapply in full or is there a shorter path?

If he didn’t complete the phase 1 BRTC he’ll obviously need to redo that but get him to call his nearest AFCO to ask about applications.

OK thanks.
He's reapplied but everything is on hold due to the virus

Is anyone still waiting to do the tarc course? I’m still waiting to do my medical and fitness test. My application started in Sept, I understand all this lockdown has slowed things down, but I’m losing the will to live! I’ve had no info on when things might start moving again. I’d like to know a rough idea so I can plan mine and my families life! Also some info on when the phase two at Southwick for the RAF Police May take place. The communication has been terrible!

So you are changing trades? Have you contacted the re-joiner cell?

Did anyone get promoted afterwards or all just SACs? I'm 48 and waiting, applied in March and the rejoiner cell only went back a few weeks ago.

You have to request re-entry at a higher rank. It depends on experience, so I would guess you would need to have progressed significantly whilst out of the Military.
