Have many units done aventure type training with in the army. We had a CTI with us on camp and there was some good stuff covered. A break from the normal camp stuff.

We have do it reasonably regularly, the main reason is that we have made good contacts with a group of CTIs, who seem to be more than helpful.

I remember being promised adventure training, some years back.

I remember being promised all sorts of training over the years. Two units & four years later, I finally decided that all officers and CS's are lying ****ers.

I think it only costs 8 a year and they do lots of absailing and rockclimbing, its open to all members of the Defence Forces. They supply you with all the kit and training etc
