HI SM,

Hi SM,

I asked my TO to send me for basic PDS, but he said HQ is cutting down on PDS and there may no longer be PDS in the future.

I have been learning PDS from my cousin from another school and I hope to become PDS trained and get the badge, please don't remove PDS from NCC?

Is there any place that I can go practice on PDS?

Bryan Silva said...

Greetings,

Your TO is lying to you on this matter. In fact, HQ NCC will be expanding the PDS program.
You are from what school?
I will put you on the next available course provided your school unit CO approves.
PDS program is very popular and there is no reason we will drop this program.

SM, how to sign up for Outward Bound Brunei?

Anonymous said...

SM, any overseas trip that 3SGs can sign up for currently?

Anonymous said...

Hi SM,

My TO wrote in to HQ many times about PDS but there was no reply about the course or certification. He showed me his email records.

I wanted to attend the PDS certification in February, but there was no news.

My TO asked me to wait for the course in the March holiday, but then later my TO said there was no information from HQ and most likely it is cancelled.

He ask me to wait for April, but I heard from my friend the certification this month is also cancelled and there may not be any certification soon.

When is the next certification or course?

Christopher Bryan said...

1. The next Basic PDS certification is on 27 May.

2. AM are volunteers. We dont pay volunteers.

3. To sign up for Outward Bound Brunei, your CO must submit your name to HQ.

4. For overseas trips, you can call this number 64773520 or log on the the NCC website and look for the NCC workplan that will indicate the overseas trips.

5. There is some communication breakdown on PDS matters. We are sorting out this problem.
