Hi my bro got posted to TransCom in 2 wks time. Just wondering what will be his starting rank & the rank when ORD?
Starting rank is SC2 only, one month after post out one month then get SC/cpl (for grf). Ord is depends. Not everyone and everything vocation get Sgt 2 but for transcom yes there is a possibility but not all. Only selected people will go thru the junior commander course to promote to sgt2

Bump bump,as the name suggests, got transcom for my vocation. Is there anyone who's in transcom or who was in transcom? Need info on how's the training like, pm me pls.
Aiya lepak one lah morning pt evening book out no need stay in, training period also very short compared to other vocations. Just be careful not to get bullied in transcom. Transcom last time the bullying culture quite bad not sure now got improve or not.

Hi all,

I have about 2.5 months till my enlistment to SPF HTA in October (Fit intake).
May I ask what can I do to prepare and ensure that I can adapt well to life during training at HTA? (eg. learn to make bed, shower in cold water?)
Also, how to get into Officer Cadet Course and become OCT in SPF? What are the criteria and how can I prepare myself before I enlist to have better chance?

Thanks in advance!
For the OCC, you have to be the cream of the crop, meaning your shooting will not only need to get marksman, but also the maximum possible points, meaning every shot you shoot is within the target area.

Another thing is your ippt, also try and attain the maximum possible points.

Lastly, you need to be recommended by your Course Manager, and of course show leadership potential, if your Field Instructor decides to ask people from your squad to volunteer to be the Squad leader, you should be the first to volunteer.

Nope. Now everywhere same. Except for GRF. Once POC, straight get SGT1 rank. Only A level n Dip can go GRF.
Really meh? But I got a friend from 171 intake with only Nitec cert but he got posted to GRF 'G' Division. This whole vocation thing is such a mystery...

Doesn't look like it at the moment, but give it time, I think they are still rolling out the new stuff and need time to implement it. For now, I suggest just indenting with the store

Good news is now SPF is taking in more OCT candidate. To me no need to volunteer to do so many things so siao on. Squad leader sufficient, the rest just get high score naturally your course manager will recommend you for the interview then that's where you shine in the interview.
