    RP training is alright. Military police (MP) training is harsher. I was an MP at Mowbray during my NS. Due to confidentiality, let us not discuss the type of training on this open forum.

    Training dun have doesn't mean posting dun have BTW.

    Ok dun say liaoz. If things never change frm 8yrs ago, it shld more or less be what I'd experienced.

    BTW, I love guard duty. Can't get enuff of it. Had a real kick when I stopped the Provost CCO's car at the main gate instead of waving him out directly. They say, "Security is of the utmost priority." Almost wanted to check the CCO's car to see if he's taking home any secret stuff.

    that is Field Defence Course (FDC), different from the Provost RP course, even though the people going to airbases are by vocation RP.

    and yes, its true PLAB have alot of charging cases.. but i am not from there
