Section 1: Recruit and Aircraftman Policy

1-1. Overview

1-2. Application Process

1-3. Phase 1 Training

1-1. Overview

All Recruits including Aircraftman follow a highly structured training program to become members of the 4th Infantry Brigade. Upon a successful application, both infantrymen and aircraftmen will be transferred into our Infantry Training Center and must complete Phase 1 training within 14 days of a successful application. This will ensure all new recruits and aircraftman have basic knowledge and skills necessary to become members of the 4th Infantry Brigade. Our Phase 1 ensures that both Infantryman and Aircraftman are able to perform to the basic standards the 4th Infantry Brigade requires. This will then enable them to join an infantry section or commence Defense Technical Training (DTT).

Recruits and Aircraftman with a successful application are welcome to attend an official night within the area they have been paired with by J1 and Company HQ to see if they will enjoy their time within the 4th Infantry Brigade.

Phase 1 must be completed within 14 days of the Recruit or Aircraftman being successful at the application stage. Failure to complete Phase 1 will result in the Recruit or Aircraftman being removed from 4th Infantry Brigade.

The minimum age for joining the 4IB is 17; the only exception to this is if the applicant is found to be mature by the J1 recruiter, at which point an exception can be made for 16 year olds. Applicants of 16 years of age will be reviewed by J1 staff and J7 training staff whilst joining the unit and may be separated at any time in the joining process if found to be a poor fit for 4IB. All applicants found providing a false date of birth will be removed effective immediately.

1-2. Application Process

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the 4th Infantry Brigade must submit an application via our forums. This can be done using the “Join Us” button on the Navigation Bar at the top of this webpage. After your application has been correctly completed and submitted, the following will occur:
  • The application is received by the J1 Office (Personnel and Manpower).
  • The application is reviewed within 24 hours.
  • If the application is accepted the applicant is invited to attend an interview OR the application is rejected with a reason that will be listed within the applicant’s application.
  • If the application has been accepted and the applicant has been invited to attend an interview, the applicant will connect to the 4th Infantry Brigade TeamSpeak under the name listed in the applicant’s application and move to the “Looking For A Recruiter” channel.
  • A formal interview will last between 10-30 minutes. This allows the applicant to learn more about the 4th Infantry Brigade, and for us to find out more about the applicant.
  • If the applicant’s interview is successful, the applicant will then be assigned as a ‘Soldier under Training’ or ‘Aircraftman’ in the Infantry Training Center, given tags with extended TeamSpeak access and additional access to the 4th Infantry Brigade forums.

1-3. Phase 1 and Defense Technical Training

Phase 1 Training is hosted on Server 2 every Tuesday at 1900 GMT and lasts approximately 3 hours. New members sign up for Phase 1 on the forums as directed by the J1 recruitment team. It is the Recruit or Aircraftman’s responsibility to notify a Phase 1 instructor if they cannot make the training scheduled for phase 1 byt posting within 1 hour of the course commencing on the appropriate Phase one sign up thread.. The Recruit or Aircraftman must then arrange or sign up to the next phase 1. J7 can arrange a Phase 1 on a separate day for those who are unable to attend on Tuesday however this is at the Head of Phase one’s discretion.

It is mandatory for Recruits and Aircraftman to reply to all respective training threads for their Phase 1 Training, where they must give notification whether they are attending or not (1-hour notice). Failing to do this 2 times will result in a discharge to Registered member whether the 14 days have passed or not.

Upon successful completion of Phase 1, the Recruit or Aircraftman will be promoted to Private or an equivalent rank within the 4th Infantry Brigade and assigned to a section, detachment or squadron.

New members may be introduced to their prospective sections prior to completing Phase 1 in order to support them through joining the unit; this is administered by J1 and Coy HQ and is not a guaranteed placement but will allow the recruit to attend events with individuals they know prior to completion of Phase 1.

For Aircraftman, they will remain within No. 22 (Training) Group until they have completed both the Phase 1 and Defence Technical Training (DTT). Phase 1 must be completed within 14 days of a successful application as mentioned in Section 1-1. Defence Technical Training (DTT) must then be completed within 14 days of the Aircraftman’s completion of Phase 1. JHC Training Staff will arrange a time and date for DTT to be ran within the allotted time frame of 14 days as mentioned above.

The Private’s or Aircraftman’s choice of where they wish to be assigned shall be taken into consideration but ultimately will be placed into sections or detachments listed under Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) at the Officer Commanding (OC) or Headquarters (HQ) discretion as referenced in Section 2-8.
