I get that it’s a way off but I was wondering if anyone knows much about the PTI course and how you can apply to be a PTI once in Para Reg?

To be eligible for the PTI course you need to be a substantive LCpl

The course is about 9 weeks long now and teaches you everything from anatomy & physiology as well as nutrition and injury prevention. All whilst getting thrashed daily. Delicious stuff!

Goes without saying that you need to be super fit as well. Companies or OCs only get a few open places to send blokes on the PTI course, so you need to be the fittest LCpl in your Coy (who wants to be a PTI). Since Para Reg attracts the fittest private soldiers in the Army, you need to be the fittest of the fittest. That's no small thing.
