NOTE: The ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP™ ranks held by our Instructors in no way reflect the ranks that those individuals may currently hold, or have previously held in any arm of the military, law enforcement or fire/rescue. They are purely ranks that they have earned in relation to the provision of the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP™ program.
Here is a brief write-up to further understand the instructors ranking at the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP...
LANCE CORPORAL - Lance Corporals are essentially apprentices, who are still learning the ropes and perfecting forms and techniques. It may be that they are still undertaking additional studies to become a fully qualified Instructor.
CORPORAL - A Corporal is an Instructor who has met all the physical and educational requirements to lead a Section (around 16 Recruits) on their own. They have been personally certified by Chief Brabon, Gunny Emily, or one of our elite Master Trainers, and now hold a Level 1 Military Fitness Specialist certification.
SERGEANT (Sarge) - A Sergeant is an Instructor who has proven their ability to lead a group of 30 or more Recruits, and has also demonstrated strong leadership skills in relation to their fellow Instructors. The Lead Instructor of each Platoon must have achieved a minimum of a Sergeant's rank.
STAFF SERGEANT (Staff) - A Staff Sergeant is an OBC Instructor who has shown exceptional leadership skills, has demonstrated a strong ability to mentor and develop junior Instructors, and has proven their dedication to the ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP™ brand as a whole.
