Much of the RSME Group is supported by a £3Bn, 30 year (2008 – 2038) Public Private Partnership contract with Holdfast Training Services. The first 7 years of the contract has seen a huge investment in the design, construction and modernisation of the training facilities and accommodation on those sites supported by the partnership contract.

In 2013 the RSME Group trained over 11,000 servicemen and women, 140 Military Working Animals and delivered in excess of 800 courses from over 350 different course types.

The quest for continuous improvement is driving the modernisation of the design and delivery of the training courses across the RSME Group. Many courses now benefit from modern state of the art technology to support the soldiers’ learning experience.

Course content and training methods are continually reviewed to ensure the RSME Group continues to deliver the required number of highly motivated, trained personnel and military working animals in order to meet the requirements of Defence.
