Recruit Instructor Course (RIC).
This is conducted over a period of 21 days, inclusive of weekends. RIs have a significant influence over the Army's newest soldiers. RIs must at all times conduct themselves within the finest traditions of the Army. The way a RI conveys their intent, attitudes, beliefs, dress and bearing and the way they promote the Army ethos has a direct influence over the Army newest soldiers. The quality of the RI is of vital importance to the future of our Army. The RIC will enhance instructional and leadership skills in order to be the role model for our newest soldiers. The nature of the RIC is to develop selected officers, Senior Non Commissioned Officers (SNCO) and Junior Non Commissioned Officers (JNCO) in the competencies of instruction, counselling, leadership and administration required to successfully train Army recruits at 1 RTB.
Qualified Assessor Course (QA).

An adult learning environment is fostered whereby both trainees and instructional staff provide effort towards the achievement of the aim. By the end of the course, trainees should have achieved the course competencies required to perform tasks as workplace assessors within 1 RTB.
