SM, why always HQ courses the instructor same faces one? My brother applied to be instructor SSC last year also never get, this year applied ADC also never get. Then end up everytime CLT say he never contribute to HQ when he did, but was never given the opportunity. Now this makes me feel like quitting NCC man. HQ are such biasness.

Christopher Bryan said...

Sadly, you talk in riddles. NCC does not have CLT but Cadet Officers. If you talk in general, sadly no one understands. Be specific, if you one to make a difference.

Since we have affirm at district level might as well end it with a POP at district level as well, besides I know that some school dont even practice POP so if we can pop by distrct level that may bond the cadets going for COC as well. How you think bout this suggestion SM?

Christopher Bryan said...

1. Hopefully,the website can be up by end of this month.

2. You may want to check with the Course Comdr on 9th ADC photos.

3. There is no boxing at NCC.

4. They will be informed by their respective sch unit CO's.

5. Please call WEST district as I do not have their Specs Assessment dates.

6. ariel6192@yahoo.com.sg

7. The idea is noble but unfortunately sch units POP at different times. Some in Apr, May, Jun and even July. 4 months gap. We can do this if you get my drift.

Christopher Bryan said...

1. Because they are the USM and ASM.

2. Inform your CO to arrange for the collection of no. 3 uniform.

3. By Sep.

4. Possible but difficult as you are in the Police Force. Adult Volunteers can't join NCC Teacher Officers Course. Only MOE trained Teachers can attend the course.

Anonymous said...

SM,but shouldn't cadets have the chance to prove that their standards and qualities are good enough to Earn them the rank of MSG instead of being restricted to SSG merely because of their positions?

Christopher Bryan said...

If you have proven yourself, then you would have been chosen to lead the unit as USM or ASM, hence they are promoted to MSG.

Rank is only a bonus. Where is your passion? Harness your passion and I believe everything else will fall into place.

Be a better man not a bitter man.

I am an AM and i heard from Cadet Officers about the idea of a Cadet Warrant Officer course. As i can't attend COC, I really hope that there will be this course. May i know if it has been approved or whether it has any chance of happening?

Christopher Bryan said...

1. No, I do not have the course comdr contact.

2. For 64th COC, you need to attend the PT test selections to be selected for the course.

3. SPF do not have colors and they do not march during NDP

4. You will still go to Tekong for BMT even if you choose to be a MP

5. You are correct, you only dip colors not flags. Schools does not have colors.

6. Can you show me which cadet corps in the world wears white beret for the Navy and Blue for the AF?

7. No, Land C/Offr or Escort can't apply for Sea or Air appointments.

8. It is costly to give no.1 uniform to cadets. That is why all have to loan.

9. No Futsal competition at NCC yet

10. The Cadet Warrant Officer course may happen but probably in 2 to 3 years time.

Hello SM,
I know this may be weird to ask but is there anyway to make the Cadet Warrant Officer course available quicker? If it does start in 2-3 years, i'll probably be going into NS and i won't get a chance to learn skills required to teach my cadets back in my secondary school (arm drills, etc. I was not taught) And since i did not attend Senior Spec, i cannot go for COC.

Christopher Bryan said...

1. It's easier said than done. It will take a considerable amount of time to formulate the syllabus, framework, terms of reference and etc to come up with the NCC Cadet Warrant Officers Course.

2. For the First Aider course, you need to check with your District Comdr or TCO.

3. Which school units participate in NCC Day Parade are left to the decision of the District Commander.

SM whats the difference between scolding and discipline?

Christopher Bryan said...

1. HQ will only issue new uniforms to AMs who are involved in NDP and attending overseas trips.

2. Who attends SSC is the decision of the school unit CO. HQ does not interfere wuth the CO's decision.

3. Escorts need to present arms when required.

4. Hopefully, within the next month the NCC website will be up and running.

5. If you are a Parade Commander (cadet) you will hold nothing. Only C/Offr carries a sword while only Parade & Colors RSM carries a pace stick.

6. Presently, we are still working on the details of the Leaders Camp.

7. SAF Day Parade is conducted annually.

8. Yes, it is done before during NCC Day Parade when the best school unit receives the NCC Colors.

9. There is no chance at all to join the Cadet Offr Course if you fail your NAPFA or PT test conducted by HQ.

10. No, cadets cannot wear the rank of cadet officer if they did not attend the cadet officer course.

11. You have to apply to SYFC personally.

12. I'm sorry but he / she needs to be a NCC cadet to join the Cadet Offr Course.

13. What is your question on scolding and discipline? the wors itself explains and I dont think I need to explain the difference.

SM, when can the USM draw no.3 uniform from log branch?

Anonymous said...

SM can i feedback that the Specialist Course should resume like previously instead of specialists assesment? Because the cadets can be in tip top bearing , turn outs and standards for that one day , whereas if it is like a course, cadets can be disciplined to maintain such standards throughout the course or even after the course. And maybe instead of 3 days, let's cut it to 2 days . At least when they go for ADC or SSC or even COC, they will meet the HQ expectation and the cadet officers will have a better life of not having the need to discipline them so often

Christopher Bryan said...

1. You need to co ord with your sch unit CO on drawing of the no. 3 uniform with Log Br

2. Sadly, we will not be going back to a 2 or 3 day NCC Specialist Course. The decision to move on to Specialists assessment was done last year due to MOE's protected time.
As Leaders, you must learn to adapt and manage whatever time given. Adjust your expectations and there would be less scolding and more nurturing.

Christopher Bryan said...

1. There will be no basic airborne course this year as the Army has a backlog of jumpers that needs to clear this course and it will be held overseas.

2. I don't understand your question on the cadet's rank, potential, calibre, etc.

3. Inform your CO humbly, its wrong to dip as taught by me. If he insists, tell him to dip himself. You will only disgrace yourself, your school and sadly NCC as an organisation too. What school are you from?

4. No, you can't wear peak cap with pixel uniform unless you are training for a parade as a Sea or Air GOH.

Anonymous said...

SM will there be any chance Affirmation will be centralized , Spec Course continuation, COC is 3 weeks and not 2 weeks , because I felt it's all these changes that made NCC cadets from different schools have fewer friends and comrades unlike the previous batches whereby the time they spent together is so much more. It's really sad when I ask my cadet after their Spec Assestment did they make any new friends mostly said a few or some even none. And the recent Senior Specialists made friends only during the course, unlike previously, we make friends before the course and of course the course itself. And mutual friends help to get strangers to close as buddies. I understand that the MOE Protected Time is issued to "Protect" the cadets but is there anyway we can debate to MOE about this?

Christopher Bryan said...

1. If the cadet did not attend Specialist Course. He/She can only be promoted to CPL.

2. I agree with you and that is left to the CO of the school unit to judge.

3. There is no chance of reverting to the old program. As a Leader you have to learn how to adapt and make full use of the engagement time with the cadets. There is nothing to debate with MOE.

SM , since NCC is a youth organization , I was suggesting of doing an E-Sports Competition to engage the cadets . The E-Sports can be a local First Person Shooter game which have SAR 21 and can use this chance to explain the rifle origin etc. How bout that?

SM, can we still wear lanyards ? Some of this year's Cadet Leaders are asking . They said that so what if the badges are issued, and that they won't be wearing the badges all the time. They also said that there is no downside in wearing lanyards on the old camo, furthermore, this year Sec 3 Cadet Leaders are the last batch of those who can wear the old camo, so why not give the priviledge for them to wear lanyards?

For this years BDC is a NAPFA report mandatory if your school did not conduct napfa for the sec3s?

1. Then I guess the school unit CO is not paying enough emphasis on Badges collection.

2. The MSG is only given to the ASM and USM.

3. Sadly, your CO has poor foresight if he/she can even give that statement.

4. There is no rule on how the flag is fold for flag raising.

5. Could you care to share with me who is this CO and from what school who provides the rank and "cookie" for cadets who fail or did not attend Specs Assessment. If you can't tell me than its pointless sharing here.

6. E - Sports Competition sounds good. Can discuss further.

7. We have to stop double standards. Once the SSC badges are issued this year, no Cadet Leader is allowed to wear lanyards anymore.

8. NAPFA is mandatory for BDC.

SM it is because that my CO says that HQ has not sent any badges yet that's why he has not receive any

SM has the pinnacle challenge badges been sent to school units for the East-Sea district SSC course?

Christopher Bryan said...

For all badges issue you need to check with your District.

SM, adding on to the idea of E-Sports Competition (I'm not the author of that comment), if SAF is willing to grant NCC access to VBS2, it would be much more easier to host the competition and easier to relate the competition to NCC / SAF due to the tactics, uniforms and arms used in VBS2.

SM, will AMs who sign up as NDP trainer be issued the new No.4 pixel?

Anonymous said...

SM, for female land cadet , do they wear a beret for no 1 as well? or do they wear peak cap

Christopher Bryan said...

1. SAF will not grant access to NCC as the gaming licensing is costly.

2. Yes, if AM's are selected to be NDP Trainers they will be issued with pixelised uniform.

3. Female cadets wearing no. 1 uniform will wear beret.

SM , Are Basic Instructors In PDS in Schools allowed to Knocked cadets down when they are just a part B lcp/Cpl without the 3sg rank and GSK Badge?

Anonymous said...

You are only
Entitled to correct your cadets' mistakes through punishment if you are a Specialist who has passed your specialist course and attained 3SG and your Army-NCC Badge

Anonymous said...

Even if you have attained a specialist status with a 3SG rank.you will need to seek the permission of the Platoon Sergeant of whomever you feel needs to be punished as you do not have the authority to punish them

SM,what is the reason for not being able to wear lanyards from 2014

Anonymous said...

As you may have noticed, NCC is issuing the new pixelated uniforms for all districts. The uniform does not come with epaulettes on the shoulder so lanyards cannot be worn anymore.

Anonymous said...

So can it be worn with our no.1 uniforms if we have since it has epaulettes.

SM, can parade be done in no 3 uniform instead of no 1 or no 4 ? If can, can the sword be equipped on ?

Christopher Bryan said...

1. Only PDS AI can knock down the cadets for PDS training only.

2. Because, we have issued SSC badges and not lanyards.

3. No more lanyards from 2014 onwards for all uniforms.

4. Parades can be conducted in no.3 uniform but you can't carry the sword. Swords can only be used with no. 1 uniform.

SM just to clarify does the no more lanyard refers to everyone? what about those old batches of senior specialists / supernumeraries ? back then modules were different and we didnt get badges, instead it was lanyard, so can we don it? because i find it no meaning buying the badges as we didnt attain them
