These SOPs apply to all members who are in a J-Office within 4IB, or who are completing a task for a J-Office. There may be additional internal SOPs for each J-Office to further enhance the way they deliver content to the unit.

11-9 Sub.1-1. Overview

Joining J7 and becoming an instructor is a hugely important part of progression for all members within the unit. With J7 focusing on promotional courses and SME (Subject Matter Expert) courses, joining the J7 Team is a requirement for leadership within the unit to support junior members. Most of our instructors teach one course to start. This is normally a subject they are particularly interested in. Some of the units more senior and experienced Instructors are capable of teaching multiple courses including promotional courses (required for certain rank). All instructors within J7 are held to a high standard because of the importance of their job, as such the following SOP will help ensure those standards are maintained.


11-9 Sub.1-2. Forum Thread

All instructors are responsible for their own threads and must keep them updated. All courses must be posted on the unit calendar as soon as the course thread is made. Any members assisting you teach the course must also be mentioned within the thread. Anyone assisting you does not need to do the DIT course or be a member of J7 but must already have the badge for that course.

All J7 instructors must follow the same template when posting a course. The only exceptions to this are promotional courses.

11-9 Sub.1-3. Discipline

Any student that failed to attend will be disciplined following Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 11 this will be sent by the course instructor. The Platoon, Troop or Squadron HQ, head of J7, that members IC or next in their Chain of Command (CoC) and the J1 Disciplinary Admin must all be copied in.

Should a student be of a higher rank than the instructor, the warning can still be sent as the instructor has the authority up to the rank of the head of J7. If that member is of higher rank than the head of J7 then contact a member of Battlegroup HQ before sending the warning.

Any instructor that feels a student is disrupting the course has the right to kick that member off the course after giving fair warning. The instructor has the authority up to the rank of the head of J7 to remove a student above his own rank. The instructor will then issue discipline as per Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 4 to anyone kicked from the course.

Any instructor wishing to leave J7 must inform the Head of J7 with at least 48-Hours notice.

Any instructor that fails to run their course at least once per month will be disciplined as per Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 12 for failing to carry out J-Office duties and may be subject to removal from J7.

Instructors teaching on promotional courses who will not be able to attend must advise the Head of J7 and the course SNCO 4 hours prior to the course night starting. If this is not upheld the J7 Head can submit disciplinary action as per Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 12.


11-9 Sub.1-4. Skill at Arms (SAA)

Skill at Arms (SAA) instructors must have a minimum rank of Corporal (Cpl.) Air Command Cpl’s and above must also qualify in SAA to be able to teach SAA courses. All Infantry Sergeants (Sgt.) within the unit must be trained as a Skill at Arms instructor. Any Cpl. or Sgt. with Skill at Arms must be available to run the ACMT at short notice. Any inactive member or those in ARC-1/E-LOA will have their skill at arms badge removed.


11-9 Sub.1-5. Courses and Documentation

All J7 Courses with the exception of promotional courses must be run at least once per month. The course instructor may teach more than this if they wish.

All courses and course documents are subject to inspection and review at any time without warning by the head of J7.

All course documents must have a change log. Any changes must be cleared by the Head of J7 before they are made and updated in the change log.
