All trainers interested in the RMA please post here with your MWLL online game name.  Your name will then be added to the roster of instuctors in the RMA Sandhurst: Cadet Enrollment/Training thread.  This will allow new recruits who are directed to the website to recognize us.  All trainers will be general studies, if you want to teach a specialty program, please post that with your name.


The curriculum for this first wave is Mech Piloting and Combat.

            3. Press tab and explain rank, progression and scoreboard information(!!!)
I.  Mech Combat

         F.  Combat

Trainers, please use the curriculum as a guideline, practice what you can, and be ready to work the new players hard.  Also, take into account the trainees previous experience.

Members of the community, even if you are not interested in becoming an instructor please make suggestions on how the syllabus can be improved, or ideas for new types of training sessions that we could hold

New players please see this post: RMA Sandhurst: Cadet Enrollment/Training

This is a resurrection of the previous Sandhurst RMC, Many thanks to Cowboy to setting it up

Edit: We need a crest! I knocked the one at the top of the post up quickly using crap applications (mostly Paint) Someone please do a better job :)

If you take this seriously, you're some kind of mouth-breathing fappwit that shouldn't have survived infancy.

From what i remember that's up to the discretion of the of the instructor since we mainly covered basic training.  The above was just an outline since all students came in with varying levels of mwll experiance

Well I am just curious since to me, those are critical basics that I address in a session. Where would you place them in that agenda?

hmmm  either in the weapons section (ie damage caused) , combat or advance controls.

I know that some trainers did "follow up" sessions with their students to cover advance tactics and the like
