Hello I'm looking to join with the Infantry reserves but one thing that doesn't sit well at all with me is the training in comparison to the reg. forces. It doesn't seem to me that reservists get the same type of training at all and are thus less prepared for deployment should they volounteer. I've been told we see all of same same topics but in a more condensed version, what does this mean? This puts me off to he honest as I'd like to be held to the same standards if not there is no point in my opinion. Yes I understand they can't train every part timer as they do a full timer due to the reality of budget constraints and the practicality of it all since we're not obligated to ship out, but how much worse is the training in comparison? Can I make up for lost skills by enrolling in varying courses AFTER I'm qualified and serving as a reservist?
