11-1. Overview

At the 4th Infantry Brigade ArmA Milsim, we use a J-Office structure to help us create content, manage administration, and generally provide support to activities in the unit that do not fall under the traditional responsibilities of the chain of command (CoC) or fit into our scheduled operations scope. 

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

11-2. Content Creation

In this SOP, the definition of content is defined as “Any ArmA3 modifications and their component parts, any documents, images, graphics, artwork, media, websites, videos, missions and their component parts, and ArmA3 compositions”

4thib will retain the rights to use, host edit, recreate, retain, or copy content created for the 4th Infantry Brigade ArmA Milsim (4thib) either;

  1. Voluntarily given to 4thib while not assigned to a J-Office within 4thib
  2. Voluntarily given to the 4thib while assigned to a J-Office within 4thib
  3. Created under instruction while not assigned to a J-Office within 4thib
  4. Created under instruction while assigned to a J-Office within 4thib

4thib will not;
  1. Sell or trade your work that you have voluntarily surrendered the right for 4thib to use, host, edit, retain, recreate or copy without express written permission.
  2. Publish your work without sufficient accreditation of authorship.

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.

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 are the promotional courses.


1-3. Discipline

Any student that failed to attend will have an AGAI 67 Mi 11 sent by the course instructor. The Platoon, Troop or Squadron HQ, head of J7, that members IC or next in their CoC and the J1 staff that deals with discipline 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 Coy 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 a Mi 4 to anyone kicked off 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 issued a 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 issue an AGAI Mi12 under SOP 7-2. 

1-4. Skill at arms

Skill at arms instructors must have a minimum rank of Cpl. Air Command Cpl’s and above must also qualify in SAA to be able to teach SAA courses. All infantry Sergeants 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/ELOA will have their skill at arms badge removed.

1-5. Courses and documents

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. 

1-6. Server Restrictions 

Server 2 is strictly off limits to anyone whilst promotional courses are taking place. This includes; 

- JMLC. 

No one should be on the server whilst these three courses are being run.

Instructors wishing to run courses on a Tuesday night must seek permission from the Phase 1 Lead and the Head of J7 before posting his/her course on the forums and calendar. Courses must not hinder or interrupt Phase 1 in any way shape or form.

Instructor Slots (Zeus Slots) are prioritised for Phase 1 Staff on Phase 1 event nights.
