I worked as part of the field phase of this course as a Troop Sgt, during a Mercury Storm. If you're lucky enough to be in a Storm (luck is in the eye of the beholder), you'll be a Troop Commander for a group of QL5 Cpls learning to be detachment commanders, and QL3 Ptes learning to be detachment members. During my exercise, the assessment period for the officers was 13 hours. Enough time for a recce, tactical movement to detachment site, and tactical redeployment to the main camp. Throw in an attack or other significant act while you're at the site, and voila, a Sig O.

I know there's a few Sig Os floating around here, hopefully one of them can fill you in on the rest of the course.

I'd prefer to stay anonymous, prevents people from filing hurt feelings reports outside of cyberspace if I say something that could offend.

I graduated on the last serial of Phases 3 and 4, but I won't be much help because they are currently rewriting the course. I can tell you it will be focused on commanding a troop and on recce. Also, from now on, candidates will be promoted to Lt upon completing Ph 3 and return for Ph 4 only several months later.
