What next?

After completing your Phase 2 technical training, you will usually complete an equipment course. The equipment course will qualify you to work on the type of vehicles or equipment used at your first unit which could be a Light Aid Detachment or a REME Battalion. With Army units, vehicles and equipment stationed all over the world, there are many opportunities for a wide variety of assignments in a number of different types of units and geographic locations.

Then after about 3-4 years of using your trade skills, deploying on exercise and operations and enjoying all of the opportunities that the Army has to offer, you will return to 8 Trg Bn REME to complete your Upgrader trade training. Your Upgrader training will provide you with an even greater depth of technical understanding of your trade, with the skills and knowledge to supervise less experienced soldiers in your trade and enable you to conduct safety critical inspections of the Army’s fleet of vehicles.
