Further trainingPhase 2: Intelligence Corps Training
Your Int Corps specific training will begin with a 27 week course at the Defence Intelligence and Security Centre (DISC) at Chicksands in Bedfordshire. As well as giving an introduction to the multi-specialist nature of Int Corps work, this stage of training provides a firm grounding in many of the skills needed for a career in the corps.
In addition to information gathering and interpreting techniques, traiing includes how to present and share data. The course focuses on both Operational Intelligence and Counter Intelligence. Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Imagery Intelligence (IMINT) and Human Intelligence (HUMINT) is taught.
Training also gives opportunities to take part in Adventurous Training. Activities vary, but can include rock climbing, hiking, white water rafting and orienteering.
Phase 2 Int Corps training ends with a passing-out parade in front of invited family and friends, and promotion to the rank of Lance Corporal. With this initial higher rank comes more pay and the chance to gain promotion much faster than in any other regiments or corps in the Army.
