  1. Recruit Training Schedule (mouse-over a date to read the details of the class)  INTRODUCTION Hello Recruits, If you already haven't make sure you read this "Read First" thread before signing up for RCT The calendar above provides the schedule of Recruit Training classes. Mouse-over a date to read details about the class. New recruits are required to attend Recruit Training Days 1 through 3, in order, to enter the Unit as full members, and allowed to report into their chosen billet. Each session is approximately 2-2.5 hours. Each Class has a student limit of 16 people so make sure you're on time to keep your spot! You will need the the following mods: @CBA_A3 @ACE @ACEX @15thMEU @15thAmmo @RHSUSAF @RHSAFRF @RHSGREF @RHSSAF @ACE Compat - RHS AFRF @ACE Compat - RHS GREF @ACE Compat - RHS USAF @Acre2 @Harrier AV-8B @FIRS AWS @FIR Pilot&Crw Pack @Zeus Enhanced Correctly installed and ready before you sign up for this class. These mods can and should be given to you by your Recruiter. If they have not already done so, seek out a different Recruiter. If you would like to test your mods, you may do so by contacting your recruiter or a recruit instructor to get access to a 15th server. If you do not have these mods ready to go when the class starts, you will be asked to attend another time. This is meant to speed up classes and not make people wait for those who haven not taken the time to check their mods prior to class. I should be in the classroom channel approximately 15 minutes before the class starts to help anyone with problems. SUPPORT AND ADDITIONAL HELP If you require extra assistance with your mods or just assistance in general, feel free to seek out any Recruiter or Recruit Instructor. They are here to help you to the best of their abilities and to make sure that your transition into the 15th is as easy as it can be. However, we also have help on the forums readily available for you. If you would like a step-by-step instruction on how to properly install your mods, please refer to our Arma 3 Mod Installation Tutorial. If you have questions regarding mod installation, launcher setup, or even general questions about the 15th, feel free to ask at our Help Desk . FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions): Q - What TeamSpeak Channel should I be in? A - The channel can be anywhere in the "Classroom" section. The instructor for the class should post a global message in TeamSpeak confirming the channel to be in at or around 30 minutes, 15 minutes, and 5 minutes before class begins. Q - What should I do if I cannot attend after signing up for a class? A - The respectful thing to do would be to edit your sign up post and write "Disregard" or something similar. If you don't, and just do not attend the class, your class may wait extra time for you in case you "show up late." Q - What should my name in TeamSpeak/in-game be? A - As detailed in your Welcome Aboard PM, your name should be "Rct [Lastname]", without the brackets. The structure is the exact same in-game as well. Q - What should I prepare and/or bring to recruit training? A - The only thing you should have prepared is working mods (to the best of your ability), and a healthy desire to learn. CONTACT If you have any questions or concerns regarding Recruit Training, or the School of Infantry path please message: Chief ITB Instructor @2ndLt Kanefield Chief Recruit Instructor @2ndLt Kanefield SIGN UP! If you would like to attend this class, sign up in this thread. Please include your last name (the last name you used on your application), along with the dates and times of the classe. Note: More dates and times will eventually be added as instructors become available. Example for formatting your signup, do NOT use these dates and times and add your answer regarding Acre2 - If it doesn't work or if you aren't sure, do NOT sign up and contact your recruiter "Rct A. Smith will be attending Recruit Training: Does your Acre2 work ingame? [Answer] Have you read the "Read first" thread? [Answer] Day 1, 08JAN19 at 2000CST Day 2, 10JAN19 at 2000CST Day 3, 13JAN19 at 16:30CST"
  2. Welcome Recruits to the 15th MEU Realism Unit's Recruit Training Pipeline! Please make sure you read through this as it contains a lot of important information regarding Recruit training so you can have a enjoyable and knowledge-filled time with us! Are your mods correct? The welcome message you received from your recruiter states you need to have checked your mods with him or her, PLEASE DO NOT sign up for any recruit classes until you have tested the mods in an official server with your recruiter. If you're holding up the class due to errors in any way, the instructor will ask you to sign up for another class. If your recruiter can not make it online at the same times as you due to time zones or any other real life occupation, then please refer to this list and find a another recruiter who will be able to vouch for your mods in-game. If for some reason, you are unable to get in contact with a recruiter or you wish to attend a day 1 within 6 hours, you may PM @Capt D. Johansen, as an absolute last resort. If another recruiter gives you the "OK" then you're free to sign up to a class that suits you, while the recruiter who helped you informs your assigned recruiter that you're set and ready for an amazing time with us in the 15th! Grooming/Facial hair Make sure before you enter your recruit class to remove any type of facial hair on your character - It is recommended that this is done the first time you start up arma 3 with our mods. Marines are clean shaven and you should be too. Sign up procedure Make sure you use the correct sign up procedure that's colored Orange at the bottom of the sign-up thread. If this isn't done correctly, you will NOT be assigned to your desired class until it is done correctly. Any questions about this can be directed to your recruiter, though it should be straight forward. Road of Recruits In this link, you can read the path you will be going through if you wish to have more detailed information before your recruit training class. This is not mandatory, but highly recommended and encouraged. Time to sign up! Click the following link to sign up and make sure you read that post too as it will tell you all the mods required for your training class.

  5. The Road For Recruits The purpose of this thread is to give current and future recruits a better understanding of the 15th MEU Realism Unit entry level career path. In brief: Create a forum account. Apply to the unit and be accepted. Get in touch with your Recruiter and test your mods in an official server. Sign up for Recruit Training, Days 1 through 3. Complete Recruit Training. Choose an open billet and report into Headquarters for assignment to an active section. Attend team, squad/section, platoon/detachment, and Unit events. Attend Post-Recruit Training schools and Rifle Range. 1. Create a forum account. Click the Sign Up button in the upper right corner of the web page and create a user account for the forums. 2. Apply to the unit, and be accepted. Your first step toward joining the 15th MEU Realism Unit is to put in an application here. Below are some things to consider before putting in an application: Minimum age requirement: 17 Years old. No exceptions. Need to have Arma 3 installed. Your application will not be processed without a valid Player ID. TeamSpeak 3 VoIP Client and working microphone/speakers/headset. You need to hear us, we need to hear you. You will not be allowed to begin initial training without these. Ability to attend at least two of our unit wide events per month, held on Sundays from 19:00 (7:00pm) - 21:30 (9:30pm) Central Standard Time. Additionally, attendance of team, squad/section, and platoon/detachment events is required to keep an active status. 3. Get in touch with your Recruiter and test your mods in an official unit server. It is necessary for all students signed up for Recruit Training to have their mods and TeamSpeak plugins working, prior to starting class. This is to ensure you and other students have an enjoyable training experience. If you are new to Arma, or need help installing your mods, it is required that you meet with a Recruiter to facilitate the setup and testing of mods. They can provide you with an official unit server to load in, check to make sure your mods are working, and help troubleshoot any issues. When your application is accepted, you will be given the name of a Recruiter assigned to you. 4. Sign up for Recruit Training, Days 1 through 3. Recruit Training is a series of three, 2-hour long training sessions designed to teach the basics of being an infantryman in the 15th MEU Realism Unit. In the tradition of the Marines motto "Every Marine is a rifleman", it is a shared experience for all incoming 15th members that begins to teach players to work together as a team to achieve an objective. In the Phase 1 forum, you will find Recruit Training class threads and a calendar with the schedule of classes. You must complete Days 1 through 3 in order, but you can choose from any schedule to complete all three. Please sign up for each day, so the instructor for that class is aware you are coming. If your schedule changes, please amend your sign up to let the instructor know you're NOT coming. Then, sign up for a new class. Show up for class at least 15 minutes ahead of class start, so that you can load into the server and be ready to go upon class start. "If you're early, you're on time. If you're on time, you're late!" - Anonymous but wise Instructor 5. Complete Recruit Training Don't forget to attend training, once you've signed up! Plan for a two-hour session. If you must leave mid-class, you will be given credit if you attended at least half of the class. You can preview some of the course content by reading the SOI Student Manual, but all of the information necessary to complete training will be given during training. Once Day 3 is completed, you'll be given further instructions for reporting into your chosen billet. Upon completion of Recruit Training, you will be given the 15th MEU(SOC) tag on TeamSpeak. This tag signifies you are part of the 15th MEU Realism Unit and serves as our "uniform" both in and out of game. Wear it with pride and respect of the long history it symbolizes. 6. Choose an open billet and report into Headquarters for assignment to an active section. At the end of Recruit Training Day 3, you will be asked to choose a billet from the Currently Open Billets (see the list and descriptions here). Once your graduation is processed, you will have access to the appropriate forum to report in. If you have a desired Platoon/Detachment and Squad/Section, you may request it. Most requests are granted, however staffing changes occur often and you may have to provide a backup billet choice in case the billet you requested is closed. 7. Attend your unit's training events, and the Official Unit Events. Before you join, make sure you understand the time commitment being asked of you. Attendance of one event per week is standard. Official Unit events occur every other Sunday at 1900 Central Time (all unit times are based on Central Time). Absences may be excused if you give prior notice to your Chain of Command. Too many unexcused absences will result in being moved to the Reserves. We understand life/work/play balance, and many members have very active family lives outside of the 15th, however all active members have made a time commitment to the Unit in order for it to function and achieve our common goals. 8. Attend Post-Recruit Training schools and Rifle Range. All GCE (Ground Combat Element) billets must complete Infantry Training Battalion. This consists of three schools, which are described further in the Phase 2 forums. Completion of the three schools is required for eligibility for promotion to Private First Class. Corpsman are required to complete Field Medical Training Battalion. All 15th members must also complete Rifle Range requirements and maintain them on an annual basis. All of these training events are scheduled on a monthly basis. The ITB schedule is posted in the Phase 2 forums, and the Rifle Range schedule is posted in the Rifle Ranges forum. 9. Have fun! Regularly check the Game Organizing forum. This is a gaming community, and there is something happening in and out of Arma 3 ALL THE TIME! Join the Public Server; strap a rocket-launcher to your Ghillie-suited sniper loadout, and work with non-15th gamers toward goals in different Arma game modes! (Emphasis on work WITH each other!) There is something always happening here. Check the forums regularly and join the 15th Discord to keep up on the latest information. Sincerely, S3 Training & Ops Staff
