    Training For The Role

    Step 1

    You'll start with your initial military training which will teach you how to be a soldier - this will cover everything from fieldcraft to handling a rifle.

    If you join as a Junior Soldier (under 17 years 5 months), you’ll do a 23-week basic military training course at Harrogate.

    If you join as a Regular Soldier (over 17 years 1 month), you’ll do the regular 14-week adult basic training.

    Step 2

    Next, you will undertake your 15-week Combat Logistician course at the Defence School of Transport in Leconfield. During this, you will earn your Category C+E Driving Licence and study general service driver modules.

    This training also gives you the opportunity to gain a broader knowledge on the Royal Logistic Corps functions and roles.

    Step 3

    You will then complete a 27-week mechanics course at MOD Lyneham, where further vessel specific training modules teach you to be a Class 3 Marine Engineer.

    Next, Class 2 is achieved by completing a vessel orientated Record of Achievement and several short courses including water jet propulsion and fibre reinforced plastic repair.

    To obtain Class 1, you will attend a 43-week course delivered at the Defence School of Marine Engineering at HMS Sultan in Gosport.
