    "If necessary, nothing to stop the unit commander tasking PDF instructors."

    Yes there is, the availability of such instructors.

    Of course, in the scheme of things a large percentage of your NCOs in a coy could be 2 individuals. Although when it is an all RDF career course that you are referring to (assuming it's the one I'm thinking about) why are all the instructors coming from 1 unit?

    With regard to SIC2, there is a proposed course over a number of weekends and a proposed course for next year which will be more RDF friendly (will still involve FTT however). The knock on effect of the SIC2 is no recruit instructors. My formation (which is relatively small currently has 5+ personnel who are SIC2 qualified). If necessary, nothing to stop the unit commander tasking PDF instructors.
    The reason all the instructors are from one unit is because the ncos in question want to put skills to use and are not getting a chance at home unit. Im a member of same unit and we havent enough troops to instruct. We spent the 1st quater of year doing shooting team tasks. Its the same every year and by time competitions are over most of us have used leave and mandays.
