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 to handle a rifle.
If you join as a Junior Soldier (under 17 years 5 months), you’ll do a 40-week 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’ll head to Bovington, Dorset for 20 weeks of specialist training, where you’ll develop your technical skills. You’ll complete your driving licence (if you don't already have it) and then move on to your tracked vehicle licence (the H licence) before getting to grips with driving the high tech AJAX.
You will also learn how to maintain and fix the vehicle as well as use the radios and the world-beating sighting systems.
