• Welcome to ACPTR!

    Welcome to the Army of CP Training Regiment. Founded in 2008 by Omega3, over 200 cadets have passed through the ACPTR classroom and graduated to become some of the greatest members of the ACP community. Our graduates have gone on to become some of the most influential members of the army community and members of the ACP leadership and higher command! Today the tradition endures and the ACPTR remains the premier institution for training the ACP soldiers.

Importance of ACPTR

Good evening/morning/afternoon troops and cadets!

Well, let me introduce myself. My name is Panda, or PandaCo, whichever once you prefer and I am an instructor for the ACPTR. Basically, I am a teacher and my goal is to make sure that cadets reach their full potential. I would also like to mention that is you spot any spelling mistakes, comment. I am Spanish so sometimes my English isn’t that great at all xD. I joined the ACPTR as I wanted to contribute to the efforts and hopefully make one of you lucky cadets the leader of the ACP!

This post is mainly to discuss and clear up a few questions about what the ACPTR does. Firstly, I have seen this question a lot of times on the main ACP chat, but people keep asking me, “What is the point of ACPTR?”: ACPTR stands for Army of Club Penguin Training Regiment. Say for example if  a soldier has no army experience at all and is put into the lower ranks, this is where the ACPTR will step in. That new soldier can learn new skills and get the army experience they need in a few months. The ACPTR is not a tool to help you rank up straight away to the top ranks but it will surely look good during your next promotion and you may skip ranks as well and move up. Having the experience with the training regiment will also one day, improve your chances of becoming the leader of the ACP. ACPTR is essentially school for Club Penguin armies, but don’t panic! This school is fun, and we don’t even make you do homework 🙂

“How does the ACPTR work?”: ACPTR works on a strict grading system. Different classes for different time zones will be posted each week on the website which you must attend in order to earn medals. The amount of medals you get for that event will be decided on the leader whom is running that event. You can also earn medals by different unscheduled events that happen sometimes on the ACPTR chat also. At the end of the month, your medals are counted and you will be given a grade based upon the amount of medals you have obtained. Of course, this grade will reflect on you and your role as a soldier. Here is the grade boundaries we use to decide what grade you should get at the end of the month –

Less than 6 medals=F

6-8 medals=D

9-10 medals= C

11-13 medals=B

14 -16 medals=A

17 – 18+ medals=A+

Of course, no one wants a grade F. Make sure you work your way to up to at least a grade C at the end of the month. And remember, aim high, go for that A+!

At the end of the month once you have got up to the top grade, you don’t have to leave us. Make sure you stick around for a while and help out other cadets who maybe new to learning about armies of Club Penguin. If you do stick around and let yourself known into the community, you could also be given a staff position if you can show that you are dedicated and determined to the ACP and the ACPTR in particular. You will also be given credit if you do this as well. Respect is essential so make sure you give and receive respect.

“What can I do to get involved with ACPTR?”: It’s simple, join! We need you as cadets into the ACPTR to make it a more known branch from the ACP. You joining the ACPTR will encourage other troops who are at a lower rank, to join us and work their way up to a higher rank. As well, make sure you put your skills that you have already learnt in the ACPTR to use. Any tactics you have learnt, make sure to show them off in ACP U-lead events. Make sure you also do well as a soldier in ACP and ACPTR events that happen almost everyday. And of course, recruit! It is essential that new people find out about these armies of Club Penguin. The more recruits you can bring into the ACP, the better! It will reflect very well on you if you do bring new recruits in.

“How do I join ACPTR and what do I have to do?”: In ACPTR, you have to be dedicated to join us. You can join ACPTR as a cadet by clicking on this link. Staff members have a little bit more stress on their heads as they have to make sure that the cadets they train are up to the standard whom both the ACP and the ACPTR are looking out for. Staff will have to teach new cadets different tactics in many areas such as: recruiting, spying, history of ACP etc… Staff are also expected to post results onto the ACPTR home page and are expected to turn up to at least 60% of classes. Do you think you’ve got what it takes? Click this link to go to the staff page and see if ACPTR are hiring! If they are, messages either owners (Brando or Super) and they will be with you shortly.

And I think I speak for all of the staff here when people say, “ACPTR is useless” (If I had a dollar every time someone said this to me). Remember, that soldier who is working hard in the ACPTR will have a lot bigger chance of getting a higher rank than you and not to mention he will be a better soldier than you since he actually put the effort into learning about the ACP. The training regiment is not useless; it will be kept alive by the amazing staff who work with us today. Our leaders and all of our staff are dedicated to making sure that you receive the grade you deserve at the end of the month.

Remember cadets to get your friends into ACPTR. We need you as much as you need us. Hard work always pays off in the end. If you have any more questions, feel free to leave them in the comments as your feedback to us is always taken into account and is needed to keep this branch of ACP alive and working.

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” – Vice Lombardi.

Thank you very much for reading me rant on and go on about a lot of rubbish it seems to most people, but I have been on the ACP chat recently and ACPTR keeps getting hated upon because people believe, “it’s a waste of time and it has no use at all”. The only response I have to this really is, you’ll be the waste of time soldier who kept hating on those who joined and worked hard in the ACPTR and now look at them! They’re a lot better than you are. Keep in mind that we still all have respect for each other and we must all consider each other’s opinions. Anyway, thank you very much for reading this post and my bad English. As I said, some things needed to be cleared up and answered for all of the new cadets, so, here you go!

Hasta luego,

~ Panda

  1. Nice post Panda and yes ACPTR is very important, without the regiment then there would be confusion throughout the new soldiers minds in ACP. Most of the owners, veterans, and mods went through ACPTR just to note 😉 .
