I will be merging all the force type qualifications into one course: Force-Type Familiarisation. This singular course will cover all infantry force-type specifics, just like the current ones do. This course will be a requirement for 2IC.
If you are missing one or more force-type qualifications by the end of next week, you will not be awarded 'Force-Type Familiarisation'.
As it currently stands few individuals take Basic Infantry (Cold War). When it is taught, many modern elements are also covered so that the individual isn't at a disadvantage when incorrect-era terminology and/or methodology is used. For example, Charlie instead of Rifles or alternative bounding with the Bren team in the lead. As such, Basic Infantry training will be changing.
Basic Infantry (Modern) will simply become Basic Infantry. It will still cover modern terminology, equipment, formations, manoeuvres and so forth. It will cover 90s additionally. For the most part the modern counterpart will be sufficient as a fall back nomenclature for Cold War and WW2.
Basic Infantry (Cold War) will be scrapped, and a new course will be added named 'Pre-85 Infantry Familiarisation'. Whilst a mouthful, the name does explain it all. This will be a course that builds upon Basic Infantry, and covers both Cold War and WW2. This will become a requirement for 2IC.
Basic Infantry (Cold War) qualifications will not transfer over into 'Pre-85 Infantry Familiarisation'.
Those who have 2IC already will not lose their qualification because of the new requirements, but it would be appreciated if you were to take these courses in the future, at your own convenience. If you were to lose your 2IC qualification, as per revocation, you will be expected to take these new requirements.
There are further course changes to come in the future, but I am slowly releasing them out, to give individuals time to become accustomed to the new changes.
