    Privately, it costs between 1600 and 1800 euro and can be done at the National Training Centre in Dublin

    How much did the private course cost?

    Who did you do it with?

    A PTL or (PT Leader) works under the supervision of a PTI or a PTS ( PT Supervisor) - all Potential NCO's do a PTL course- then some do a PTS course and then after a year the PTS's can go on the PTI Cse.

    Course length for a PTL is 2 weeks.

    So the PTL course should be open to the RDF.

    it would be a foolish NCO who would let a private double time any body and a clown of a one to let a private supervise calastethics

    if someone has the Jane Fonda course done in civy street thats fine, but hte PTI/PTS/PTL course is more concerned with soldiers PT, which involves basic stuff like tumbling, rope climbing, the balance beam and the vaulting horse,

    its not all the glamorous stuff of running around a barracks

    every so often the army run a conversion course for those who have the NCEF cse

    be exceptionally careful in this day and age about PT training
    Whats the difference in what PTLs / PTSs / PTIs can do with troops?
    Can a NCOs (who ISN'T any of the above) ar solar troops?

    Im currently doing the NCEF course. It would be an idea to take on a few fitness instructors in the RDF for some basic PT..

    That's a negatory good buddy.
    They have to do a course.

    However, any nco is allowed to march troops ar sodar (as far as i know, jump in and correct me if i'm wrong), which some people get sniffy about. It's a drill movement. Also, they're allowed to do some core stability excercises, like making troops hold a rifle out from their body for 30/60 seconds.

    To my knowledge there are no RDF PTI courses, and civvie courses are not recognised. The reserve needs reserve PTIs. This is a major issue that is not being addressed because PDF PTIs are browning their trousers at the prospect of being replaced by a sandbag.

    As with most problems in the army, common sense is thown out the window.

    I know members of the 25th Bn who were able to take Minor PT classes

    Any members of the 25th Bn have any other news of this?

    Yes, I did a PTI cse.......a civilian one. There are PTIs outside the army as well. PTI is part of the all incompassing civilian HFI qualification (Health & Fitness instructor). I have never used my qualification in the Army but hope to some day if recognised.
