Completed my HK ICT back in Feb. Let me share abit..

1st day in-pro at 12pm, immediately go for swab test. Then assign bunk and do nothing until RO. 2nd day was 1/2 day afternoon home based learning, so went back after lunch. Day 3 was technical handling and IPPT. I'm IPPT eligible, but i didn't want to take, so i was allowed to not take IPPT. Day 4 was SOFUN. Day 5 was Force Prep. That was week 1 already. We already know that the following week's Mon to Wed is stay in, so most of the items already brought to camp by Friday.

Come monday, another swab test. Then force prep. Tue move out for field training. Wed afternoon came back to camp. Send arms, shower and settle platoon level stores. Thur clean weapons and settle company level stores. Fri send bunk and out-pro.

Overall quite a lepak HK ICT. Alot of moving about though. I managed to clock 10k steps daily during ICT.

Looking forward to next year's HK ICT. 3D2N outfield. Also my final year. Hopefully.

combat or combat support unit?

Within a work year, if you take only IPPT and nothing else, is that year considered an ORNS year?
Some people said it's not, and I also couldn't find it clearly on NS website. Appreciate if someone could shed some light on this.
Thanks!
As long as got SAF100, means counted as an ORNS year.

I don't think so. If its just IPPT, usually its book by yourself instead of unit. So its not counted as 1 of your reservist cycles.

Participating in any reservist activity during the work year counts towards orns.

There is no low key quota. It's 7 high key and 10 orns.

I went back for reservist 2 months ago and we were grouped as 'functional group' (A platoon is in the same functional group) and we are not supposed to interact with people from other functional groups.

Also we need to have swab test once per week. For the 1st swab test it will be done during inpro.

For accommodation wise we were spreaded out. Some will have their bunks in other buildings with empty bunks within the camp instead of all being housed in the reservist training centre's bunks. Also we cannot change bunks as we liked last time.

Anyone here is from the Main Combat Support Battalion NS unit?
Just curious as to how would a high key reservist in this unit be like cos I just called up after 7 years since I ORD-ed.
Thanks!

As normal last time is 10, so now will be? Will appreciate yr answer
When I went back last yr Dec, max is 10 in the biggest room. But the whole bunk room is only segregated by some human-height walls, it is still practically ~30 ppl sharing one big room. Bed spacing is width of the cabinet.

All I can say is there is no 'distancing' (i.e alternate beds should be unoccupied) so everything will be as per normal.

Not sure about other camps but for Sungei Gedong ABGTC/CTTC there are various sizes of bunks from 5 beds to 22 beds. (those 11 bed bunks are inter-connected)
