4-1. Overview

4IB and its members are dedicated to making 4IB the most professional, yet fun ArmA 3 MilSim environment. To that end, we run regular training that members are able to and/or are expected to attend. Section 4 outlines to all members their requirements regarding Training and Operations within 4IB.

All training/patrol reports must be posted within 24-Hours of an event, failure to do so will result in disciplinary action as outlined in Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 10.


4-2. Scheduled Section/Detachment Training

All scheduled section/detachment trainings/patrols are required to produce a training/patrol report. If this training/patrol was conducted at a Platoon level, the subsequent report would be produced by Platoon HQ. Likewise, if this training/patrol was conducted at section level the subsequent report would be produced by the relevant Section Commander (IC) or Section 2IC if the former is not available.
Training sessions also require a relevant training plan, this training plan is to be disclosed to the relevant Chain of Command (CoC) via implemented ‘NCO-Mess’ (Section Level) and ‘HQ-Mess’ (Platoon Level) - Company level training will be cleared by Battlegroup HQ before going ahead.


4-3. Non-Mandatory Training

Any Detachment may conduct non-mandatory training at any time. This training falls outside of the scheduled weekly Training or Operation Nights during Pre-Deployment Training (PDT). It can consist of any number of members of a Detachment gathering in TeamSpeak and/or Server so long as it can be shown that the activity contributes to the training and development of those involved.

A public server such as DayZ, Antistasi or KOTH for example does not count as Training.

All non-mandatory trainings must be accompanied by a training report and must be written and submitted no later than 24-Hours after the event has concluded.


4-4. Training Reports

All Detachment/Section Level training that is conducted, whether mid-week, during PDT or non-mandatory, requires the completion and submission of a Training Report as outlined below.

Platoon Level training that is conducted during PDT or during mid-week also requires the completion and submission of a Training Report.

A template can be found within the Training Reports forum thread by making a new post.

All training reports must be signed off by the relevant Chain of Command (CoC) and anything that is lacking from or does not meet the standards of a written report should be flagged and rectified.


4-5. Official Operations

Official Operations conducted by 4IB are mandatory events for all members. Anyone who is unable to attend these mandatory events must submit a LOA prior to the event as outlined in Section 2-10.

At present, all Official Operations conducted by 4IB will be held on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays commencing at 1900 GMT.

It is expected that all members will be on TeamSpeak in their appropriate channels between 15-30 minutes prior to the commencement of Official Operations unless previously requested by relevant CoC. Any member who connects to the Operations Server after 1930 GMT will be marked as “Late” on their attendance record.

The minimum time required to be marked as “Present” is more than 90 Minutes from 1930 GMT (2100 GMT).


4-6. Patrol Reports

Similar to training, all Patrol Operations conducted are official and must generate a Patrol Report. This will be the responsibility of the most senior member of the Patrol. Due to the fact that these patrols are carried out on our live Operations Mission, it is very important that any intelligence gathered is relayed via CoC and included within the Report. Patrol Reports must be posted in the designated forums for the Current Operation.

A template can be found within the Patrol Reports forum by making a new post.

All patrol reports require to be signed off by the relevant CoC, it is the responsibility of the CoC to bring forward anything that is lacking from or does not meet the standards of a written report.


4-7. Pre-Deployment Training

Pre-Deployment Training (PDT) and Mission Specific Training (MST) periods are conducted after the end of a deployment and span multiple weeks. These weeks are inclusive of preparation for the coming deployment and consists of members being drilled on relevant topics that will likely be required for future deployments. This period also acts to refine those skills that may be lacking.

Within the PDT/MST Window, the Operation evenings are replaced with Battlegroup/Company/Platoon/Section (Squadron applies for EAW) led training sessions. These training sessions are mandatory for every member within 4IB. As such, anyone unable to attend these mandatory sessions must post a prior LOA as outlined in Section 2-10.


4-8. Phase 2 & Phase 3 Training

4IB provides multiple opportunities for members to learn new skills, some of which apply in-game and others can be applicable to real-life applications also.

Phase 2 Training focuses on Section related skills such as the ‘Basic Medical’ or ‘Basic Searchers’ courses, these courses allow the member to experience new and exciting roles within their respective element and could potentially spark interest into joining specialist areas of the unit.

Phase 3 Training focuses on specialist skills related to a specific role, for example, ‘Advanced Medical’ course allowing the member to fill the role as a Medic/RAF Doctor. These trainings allow the member to perform these specialist roles to the high standard expected from all members in 4IB.

Battlegroup/Company/Platoon HQ (EAW HQ) reserve the right to revoke any Phase 2 or 3 qualification from any member under their Chain of Command (CoC) if they deem that the member is not sufficiently trained in the subject matter or shows a lack of knowledge to effectively carry out the role requiring those specific qualifications.

All courses have limited spaces and are sometimes reserved for those who require the course for their current role (And/or are required to attend by their CoC). Signing up to a course does not necessarily guarantee you a space on that course.

If any member cannot attend a course that they have signed up for and been confirmed for, they must post on the same forum post; a removal request from the course in a similar manner to an LOA which is outlined in Section 2-10, this removal request must be posted at least an hour before the scheduled course to allow the instructor to arrange a replacement. Failure to notify an instructor in a suitable time will result in the member receiving a disciplinary action as outlined in Section 7-2, AGAI 67, Mi. 11.
