Want to find out what it is like to be a Rifleman?

Ex CHOSEN MAN is an insight course, organised and delivered by The Rifles, which is designed for those young people who want to learn more about Army life in The Rifles.

The minimum age is 15 years up to 32 years and 9 months. The courses are run every month at The Infantry Training Centre in Catterick. It costs you nothing and commits you to nothing whatsoever. You will be accommodated and fed free of charge and will get to see what being a Rifleman is really all about.

Get a taste of what it's like to be a Rifleman. We also provide you with hints and tips on how to fly through the Army selection board. At the end of it all you'll be taken to watch a Platoon of Riflemen complete their training and march off the square at The Infantry Training Centre in Catterick. They'll also be available to answer any questions you have about the training. We're not as old fashioned as you think. Try it, you might be surprised...

If you want respect, independence, friends for life, to learn new skills, excitement and success in later life, we can offer it. To find out more details on the course please get in touch with The Rifles' Support Team: Call 0845 6439 247 or email armyjobs@the-rifles.co.uk
