Really need some advice here guys — particularly anyone in RMR London who's familiar with the scheduling. Want to give me employer some detail into how much continuous training is likely to be involved in one year, and also so I know how much of my holiday allowance I need to use. Taking unpaid leave at the end of Phase 1 A, won't be a problem for me as its only 10 days off work. However, most people are now saying Phase 1A+B can be done in a year, but bearing in mind RMR London starts in September, based on my estimates I'd need to take 28 days continuous in one calendar year? Hypothetically, if I start training in September (best case scenario) I'd be looking at using 10 days off work in February to complete the 14 days at the end of Phase 1A. Then 6 months down the line I'd be completing Phase 1B, perhaps July — the same calendar year (there lies the problem of taking more leave, which I'm not sure my employer would be keen on). What are my options? Could I complete 1B, then wait till the new calendar year (when I have more holiday) to do my commando tests? Or is it compulsory that the commando tests are done at a certain time? Finally, is it possible to miss 1/2 Wednesday nights in a year?
