    Hi Seaghost. The recruitment campaign of the unit you are joining depends largely on the specific unit itself. It isn't a NSR or Army Reserve thing, it is the individual unit you are joining. Even in the Army Reserve, you can have units with training centres barely metres apart and still get a completely different induction from both. There is very little uniformity in the the way units in the RDF recruit. Some can process you in 6 weeks, some still struggle to do it in 6 months. Don't blame the NSR specifically - blame the particuliar unit.
