Training For The Role
You'll start with your initial military training which will teach you how to be a soldier - this will cover everything from fieldcraft to how 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.
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.
Then you will begin your 13-week Mariner Class 3 Seamanship course and the start of your Level 3 Apprenticeship. The course is delivered by 73 Training Squadron in Marchwood, Southampton.
The Class 2 course is a 19-week vessel command and navigation course, delivered again by 73 Training Squadron, with Royal Yachting Association (RYA) accreditation.
