Military courses

#41
@ Snafu : as I knew it then
1 level : C.T.E. open to low ranks
2. level : C.T.1 ((having a CT 1 will help a lot in re engagement and will pay a bit more, when you get your pension (how much, i have no idea and if you get that far )
Both these levels can and are used at regiment /company /section
Open to lower ranks and nco
3. level : C.T. 2.
Usually for higher nco and mostly at regimental level
4. level : EMAT ( Establishment matériel de l armée de terre. ..techniciens, mainly high qualified civilians under army command
Only them can declare a weapon beyond repair. ..same for véhicules, radios etc .
Will post more later but now am needing a kit kat
Thanks, I'm a bit of a gun nut and have been fiddling and faffing with them most of my life, hoping to carry that over into Legion life .

Hoping to revive this thread again, how do the sniper courses vary/work in the Legion?

Is there a designated marksman course like the yanks? Or does one have to a full on sniper course qualifying on the PGM and the FRF2?

Thanks for any responses Greens, I'm intrigued to find out more?

I did an encadrement/teaching staff, for a, tireur d'élite course. It lasted 6 weeks and is almost as difficult /harder/worse. ..as doing a caporals course
Mainly, shooting / optics / topo/camo/identification and transmission. ..night marches/assault course/ and inspections. ..of course, all orders barked out (the reason for my being)
2.R.E.1., 1 st.company, was the formation unit for the rest of the regiment and others too (gendarmerie mobile, anti riot and stuff, had 5 of them during this course and also the armée de l'air, "cocoyes", fusiliers/commandos, they protect the air bases, home and away
Was the F.R.F.1 at that time 87 but with memory instruction on MSA (wich is a FSA adapted for sharp shooting
The brevet / badge won : was an FRF1 thru a target and a caméléon clinching on the canon
