9-4. Completion of Command, Leadership and Management Courses, Tuition and Administration
9-5. Promotion Boards
9-6. Infantry Ranks
9-7. Expeditionary Air Wing Ranks



9-1. Introduction

The promotion system within 4IB is one of the more difficult ladders to climb, with multiple prerequisites required to obtain each rank, outlined below. With each respective rank, additional responsibilities and requirements are bestowed upon and required from the member.

Additionally, members will be promoted and transferred dependant on Operational Requirements, outlined in Section 2-8.


9-2. Recommendations

Relevant Detachment Commanders can make recommendations for members within their detachment to attend any relevant Promotional Courses, including but not limited to: JNCO, SCBC and JMLC.


9-3. Acting Ranks

An acting rank is given to members who have shown the correct attitude, knowledge and enthusiasm but have yet to complete the relevant promotional courses required to hold the substantive rank. A member that holds the Acting (A/) prefix is required to complete any outstanding relevant courses within a pre-agreed time frame (Usually 3-Months) of their promotion, otherwise the member will be demoted back to the previous rank or a suitable one dependant on Operational Requirements, as per Section 2-8.

This section may be overruled by Battlegroup HQ if there is an Urgent Operation Requirement as per Section 2-8.


9-4. Completion of Command, Leadership and Management Courses, Tuition and Administration

Leadership positions and ranks within 4IB require a standardised understanding of how to best utilise those under your command including relevant attachments/detachments. As a result members will be required to complete specific promotional courses to inform them of how best to achieve the aim of their role once appointed to the position. These courses are administered by J7-Training.

Members who are attending any J7 Promotional Courses are required to have an attendance of 80% for participating troops and 60% for directing staff tracking. Attendance waives can be created by the Course Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) for participating troops and directing staff if attendance requirements are not met, however good reason needs to be supplied.

Below are the relevant attendance requirements for each respective course:
  • Junior Non-Commissioned Officers’ Cadres (JNCO): 5/6 Weeks, required to attend Final Exercise.
  • Section Commanders’ Battle Course (SCBC): 3/4 Weeks, required to attend Final Exercise.
Attendance will be tracked by the Course SNCO and the Admin Instructor to allow for correct backlogging of attendance for future courses.


9-5. Promotion Boards

A Promotion Board usually consists of a representative/s from Battlegroup HQ and relevant members of the Detachment HQ. These are designed to assess performance, attributes of potential candidates put forward for promotion.

For promotion to the rank of Sergeant (Sgt.) or above the recommendations shall be reviewed by a representative/s from Battlegroup HQ and if applicable Company HQ.

Members selected for promotion, if they have not already will be required to complete the relevant promotional course for their prospective rank.

Any open positions will be announced via the forums and members can apply if they meet the basic requirements listed (Unless the role is under the effects of Section 2-8).
