    When I went through we were given the dates of the exercises at the start of each phase 1A / 1B to give us a chance planning our lives around them. It was not set in stone however and be prepared for changes at short notice, also missing more than one weekend each phase will result in being back trooped. Person dependant I believe missing one weekend could also be a risk as well if one has not passed a training objective and the missed exercise is the last chance to pass it before going to ctc for the criteria test

    Like Ninja and TPA say budget for a weekend potentially once a fortnight and you will be fine as it is mostly to this schedule or every 2 weeks, however occasionally it will vary a lot. Eg I had no exercise for about 6 weeks (spanning summer leave) and then 3 weekends in a row taken up by training

    Warehousing, rotating shift patterns, it’ll only clash with drill night once a fortnight but I’m pretty sure I’ll be given the time off for it

    The whole block leave thing is a bit of an annoyance really. I don’t understand how they can justify taking that time off and expecting lads to make it up afterwards.

    Depends on the AFCO/RMR Unit - I'd certainly allow 3 months from application to PRMRC.
