    Reserve units training jr Officers at the unit level.

    Actually, the question was addressed in the original post - "I'm not talking about collective training where the the pl comds/coy comd's are the PTA." Seems the "DS" here are better at typing and flaming than they are reading.

    So, you're saying there's no difference in the relationship between Officers/troops and the relationship between NCO's/troops? Really?

    Reserve units training jr Officers at the unit level.

    When a body of soldiers revives a leader who they already have a poor impression of (be it because he was a poopy troop who CFRed, or they got to observe him first learning what's what as an OCdt), it makes life unduly difficult for that officer. It's better if the troops have no impression, and...

    I'm not the one who started the pissing contest. That was the "Directing Staff" As for your point, you can't really compare the dynamics between off'r/NCO in the RCAF to that in the infantry.

    I answered yours, now answer mine: Do you think it's a good idea for junior officers to be doing their small party tasks (for their first time) in front of thier future subordinates prior to them going off on their pohase training. Have i got that right?

    Reserve units training jr Officers at the unit level.

    I suggest you go back and read my whole post. I don't repeat myself on Wednesdays. I'm not talking about leaders leading their subordinates as a team in collective training, i'm talking about green, untrained officers doing "pre-phase2/3" training, i.e. small party tasks, recce Ptls and sect...

    Reserve units training jr Officers at the unit level.

    So, just to be clear, you're saying you think it's a good idea for junior officers to be doing their small party tasks (for their first time) in front of thier future subordinates prior to them going off on their pohase training. Have i got that right? Have you ever been in a regular force unit...

    So, the "DS" is here to start childish flame wars where they don't even attempt to address the point? Wow. Now i remember why i don't come on here.

    Care to address the point, or are you just here to flame?

    Reserve units training jr Officers at the unit level.

    I agree wholeheartedly. I'm saying that this training shouldn't be conducted by the unit's NCOs, in front of the unit's troops. NCOs (especially jr NCOs) shouldn't be training the very people who will eventually be leading them, and troops shouldn't be in a position to observe their officers...

    CFR's are already coming from a place that gives them credibility in the eyes of the  the troops. And even then, those CFR's aren't (or shouldn't be) doing their officer training in front of their troops.

    Reserve units training jr Officers at the unit level.

    Something i want to address is the training of junior officers (OCdts/2Lts) at the unit level in preparation for their career courses. I'm seeing this occur in my unit, and was wondering if this is common in the reserves, or just an isolated thing in the unit in question. I know in the Reg F...
