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 Regular Soldier (over 17 years 1 month), you’ll do the regular 14-week adult basic training.
Then it’s off to Larkhill to become a qualified Gunner. Over 15 weeks, you do military training, sport and Adventurous Training. You also learn to drive a car and trailer and do a cross-country driving course in a Land Rover.
