There's now a new Second in Command course. This will be required in future role-sheets for the slot of the same name. Completion of Basic Infantry will be necessary to take this course.
This course will cover the duties and responsibilities of being a section 2iC fully. It will build upon the knowledge of Basic Infantry, so you have a greater understanding of each element of the section when making decisions to best utilise them. It will detail the relation to the section commander and the platoon sergeant. As well as how to issue orders effectively, and the traits of good leadership.
Additionally there will be training on how to handle the section if your commander is to die; covering subjects such as the procedure for this, an introduction to the long range radio net, an introduction on tactical thought, and other considerations to account for when assuming command.
If you have completed Section Commander already, then you will automatically receive this qualification. Please PM me if you feel you should have the qualification, and if you don't receive it. Give reason.
