With that said, I've also heard somewhere that in your ippt (not rt) year, if you attempt ippt 20 times but not pass, you only need to attempt (don't have to pass) ippt once the following year in order to be considered clear for both years. Is that true, and would that apply if you volunteer yourself for 20 ipt sessions instead?
this might be true given on the fact that it is 20-D.. but this is subjected to the words from official channel and/or fellow brothers here has personally experienced it.

however, in my opinion IPT is more fruitful.. do consider the following:

- all IPT sessions will be paid (2x IPT-IPPT + 8x IPT);

- only first 3 IPPT of any kind will be paid, and this includes the IPT-IPPT. meaning that if u want to maximize the 1/2 svc pay that you are entitled, u can take 1x non-ICT IPPT in addition to the 10 IPT sessions;

- IPT sessions has more flexibility, as you can choose to attend on Sundays, weekday's noon and IPT-in-the-park for example;

- IPT takes about 45mins.. similar to IPPT;

- in the event of rain.. IPPT may be cancelled and attendance will not be counted. Whereas IPT at FCCs will continue.

so... IPT or IPPT. u decide.

Hi, I am having my 40th birthday in April, and I presumed this current cycle is my last cycle for ippt. Then I received the letter for HSP checkup. So does this mean I still need to clear another cycle of ippt?

So I booked an E1PEP-IPPT session and missed that. Accidentally rebooked the next session as IPPT instead of E1PEP-IPPT session and attended that. Just got a reply from contact@ns.sg that the IPPT attendence cannot be converted to an E1PEP-IPPT session attendence............. And I have to book and attend another E1PEP-IPPT to start the E1PEP program. Meaning I need to complete an extra session to finish my ippt obligation this window.

Wondering if anyone here knows who to highlight this issue to? Finding it a little ridiculous that the same 3 station ippt attendence is not interchangable between normal ippt and e1pep ippt.

Both types of ippt session are entitled to the same half day rank pay btw.

I'm also assuming that this is the case for IPT........

Hi all

My window closes at the end of June 2019 and I am currently in my RT window. I just obtained a IPPT/RT excuse from my doctor and was advised by him to get it endorse by my unit camp MO.

I called the NS hotline to book an appointment to see my unit camp MO but was told by him that it was too late because it’s too close to the end of my window. Nevertheless he still proceeded to help me book.

My question is
1) will my unit camp MO endorse it? Hence I won’t be charged?
2) my ICT is coming up in June. If I tried to pass the ICT-IPPT, does it mean that I complete my obligations for my current RT window? And hence, won’t be charged for not completing the 20 RTs required?

Thanks all bros in advance

1 - MO will still have to endorse as a form of acknowledging your "outside" doctor's note. MO will make the decision as to how many months u shall be excused from IPPT. There is a policy that if the excused is more than a certain period of month, you will then be excused from clearing the IPPT window. However, for your case is quite vague but i believe it can be excused.

2 - ICT in june... if your MO gives the excuse of IPPT that your ICT is during this period, u are not allowed to take part in the IPPT.

basically when u meet your camp's MO, do check with your S1 or S8 / NSC / Persnode about your IPPT window. Or you can request NS hotline to inform your unit to give u a callback.

this should help in your queries.

If I cannot clear 10IPT in 1 year, will I have to take 20 RT in the next year?
Or is it true for the next year, I will just need to take 10session (next year quota) + remaining of uncompleted IPT this yea?

Hello all,

My D = 3 because I did 3 IPPT last year and failed all 3.

So this year system says I need to clear 17 RT sessions and I can only take RT-IPPT earliest on the 8th RT session.

My question is, do I need to clear 7 RT sessions before being allowed to do the RT-IPPT or are the 3 sessions counted at the start and so I just need to clear 4 sessions and then I can do my RT-IPPT on the "actual" 5th session?

Just rmb u only can take RT-IPPT on 8th,14th,20th. So you need clear 7 RT first loh.

And you only have 2 RT-IPPT (8th & 14th), the rest all RT

U need to clear 7 RT inorder to reach the RT-IPPT session and only if pass, u will be released from IPPT for this window only. Otherwise, 8th session is RT-IPPT followed by normal RT sessions and RT-IPPT based on the counts u are required to attend.

that is why it is stated "7th session" and not "7-D" etc

Hi all,

I just had a MRI scan and my specialist confirmed that I have ankle sprain and need to be excused for running for 6 weeks. My IPPT window will close in May and I havent complete my IPT. I will be endorsing my specialist letter with my NS unit MO soon. Will I be liable for RT in my next window as I didnt complete IPT this window?
