    I already been through two ICTs during my active NSF days. Basically just think of it as being "outstation" with the NSmen.

    It's nothing much one lah.... For first ICT, it's usually IPPT followed by basic retraining for the next couple of days. Then maybe a company exercise near the end..

    You serve your ICT during your NSF days?

    Because my unit has NSmen, NSF and Regulars. Not like those purely NS units.

    Secondly, my OC "ask" me to go.

    Btw, these are definitely not counted under the NS ICT cycle.

    I am a NSmen in such a unit too. I have gone through 10 high keys so far. I must say that it helps to have NSFs around. The only difficulty is the age gap.

    Don't worry too much about ICT, its unlike active days.

    hey beanie!

    Usually, ICT begins with this half-a-day in-processing! haha! so half the day gone liao. then it is lunch and likely lobo around since it is your first ICT.

    Watch your hair-cut, if u have a growling RSM going around checking hair-cuts, then if your hair standard dun pass, u will be 'dispatched' to your camp barber who isn't exactly a terribly good hairdresser!

    The next day is usually the IPPT though sometimes, the
    IPPT is done towards the end of the ICT. Whenever it is, u r bound to dread it and get cold feet unless u r a super duper fit guy!

    Make sure u bring along your SMART card so u can get some stuff at the e-mart. The new Gotex boots seems like hotcakes and often fly off the shelves! haha!

    Most of all, make friends with your ICT mates. I did and some really good friendship resulted!

    Let a reg tell you:

    1) remember to have a good haircut
    2) remember your SMART card if not no credits for you to buy your stuff in eMART
    3) Bring your packed fullpack and SBO
    4) Depending on what your vocation was in the Inf. unit, your estab will differ. Mainly, all the CE equipment will be issued to you before All PREP timing.
    5) Bring comfort items (if your Inf unit dun mind but sure got fullpack inspection) - ie. FOOD
    6) No need to bring jacket coz the Gortex one will be issued
    7) other stuff like ground sheet, ETs and cleaning kits will be sissued to you by the coy CQ
    8) Just bring along a positive attitude and 3 weeks will be over very fast
