The average person spends 15 days a year surfing the web in their spare time. Why not get paid for doing something really useful?
Each RLC Reserve unit is part of the same Corps as the Regular Army and you will learn the same trade skills as a full-time soldier.
You will be away for weekends and on two-week Annual Continuous Training where you will develop your skills and be involved with Adventurous Training activities.
Initial training (also known Basic Training) is where you will learn to become a soldier. You’ll be taught survival and fieldcraft skills, first aid and how to use personal weapons. Basic training, like all reservist training, is flexible and can be arranged to fit in around your day job and you do not have to do all the training at once - it can be completed in shorter modules depending on your circumstances.
Following the completion of Basic Training, you will undertake training in your trade specialism. RLC Reservist soldiers can qualify in one of 12 different specialist RLC trades as detailed below.
