ITC Catterick

Infantry Training Centre Catterick (ITC Catterick) trains all the Army’s infantrymen, producing some of the best infantry soldiers in the world.

Recruits joining any of the Infantry Regiments – including The Footguards, The Parachute Regiment and The Brigade of Gurkhas – complete the appropriate Combat Infantryman's Course at ITC Catterick, which represents their combined Phase 1 and 2 training.

These pages deal with later (Phase 2 and 3) training for officers and soldiers – including parachute training, drill courses and piping/drumming. For more information about infantrymen’s initial combined Phase 1 and 2 training and the Combat Infantryman’s Course, see the ITC Catterick pages under Soldier Initial Training.
