Signal Operator @ Signal Institute

After OOC from driving course, I got revocated as signaller.

Anyone got idea what type of training will be conducted during the course?

Heard that there will be 72km route march with signal set. Is it true?

And where is Signal Institute?

Also, my encik told me I will be in IC2. Dun really know what is that though.

Any signaller can share their views and experience?

whats ur pes anyway?

last time IC2 have road march, but i think once only during course.
IC2 aka chiong sua signaller, depend what u do in unit too.

IS course then dun have as majorly all non IPPT eligible, so those pes a/b lucky to get in.

as for unit life will depend on the unit.

driver is support, yet u get OOC n throw to signal which is combat support?
up pes or down pes?
up pes also remain same vocation for some, u suay lei.

Somemore I got knee problem which I will be having a specialist checkup at NUH soon.

If really chiong sua then I choot sua liao.

Hope so. But the course got pass and fail one right? Was wondering if I required to be physically fit for the marches and stuff then if I'm excuse then I might fail the course.

Cos I believe I have to carry a signal set and march which I have shoulder injury and specialist says I can't carry heavyload and now knee injury.

I have to go for my knee checkup and see what the specialist says. If I'm excuse from rmj then I think high chance I will drop pes since I'm already excuse upper limb.

Btw, my specialist from NUH says that I'm excused ippt, upper limb and weapon handling. Plus my knee I think I really is cmi soldier.

base on 08 intake, signal course for men got 3type.

IC2, IC1, IS.
in layman term :
IC2 : chiong sua, front line signaller. like those combat unit who function as a signaller too. so posting can be any unit.
IC1 : middle of IC2 and IS.
IS : more towards computer base signaller. function depend on unit.
fpr me, posted out to institute as signaller, basically lobo on most time, more like a admin signaller. but there are unit who take in IS trained, what they do i got no clue because i think they are active, like signal unit in stagmont camp.

Oh. Thanks for the info.

From the letter, it says that I'm going to be signal operator and my course will be at the Signal Institute. Never say its Stagmont camp but I guess its there.

And they never say I will be in what IC. My course will start on 16 jan 2012. That's all the info I have for now.

When then I know I will be which type of signaller?

last time all go liao then know which course.
everyone letter will put IC2.
because majority come from tekong mah.

for unit posted, just see what type of signaller is in ur unit and u will go same course. because after u finish u will go back unit.
unless ur still in driver unit and not signal unit.
