To allow units to upskill their runners the AOA/ASPT basic skills course 13-15 May has been adapted to coincide with the ARMY Inter Unit Team Championships; which is now taking place on Longmoor Trg Areas.
Students on this course WILL be able to compete in unit teams, in this Championships on the 15th and 16th.
The course timetable is being adjusted to run for two longer days (Mon/Tue until approx. 20.00hrs) and until midday on the Wed 15th to fit in the full course content.
This is a great opportunity for unit teams to enhance their competitiveness in the Championships. Places are limited to 5 per unit. First come, first served!
