Army Reserve Training
As a Reservist you do your training in the evenings and at weekends and you get paid for the time you spend training.
You'll need to do your basic training - but this can be arranged to fit in around your day job. You don't have to do all the training at once. It can be completed in shorter modules or in one go.
Further training also takes place in your spare time. It can take weeks or months depending on your role, course and how much time you can give. Your unit will be happy to support you during your training.
Basic Training consists of three main courses and some online training packages. You can book on the courses to fit around your daily life, so it could take you several months to finish your basic training.
Module 1: Foundation Training. A weekend at an Army Training unit with other Army Reserve Recruits.
Module 2: Four weekends over 8-12 weeks OR one 8 day course.
Module 3: A continuous 15.5 day Battle Camp for all recruits.
You can complete your officer training in modules or in one go depending on your circumstances. Both options will see you receive your commission on completion of your training at The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Initial Officer training is a series of 4 modules.
Consolidated training courses are run at Sandhurst allowing you to potentially complete all of your Reserve Officer training in a single eight week package. The course ends with a formal Commissioning Parade in front of Old College to which family and friends can be invited.
Module A & B : These are either broken up into seven weekends with an Officer Training Corps or each done as a consolidated two week course at Sandhurst.
Module C: This lasts for two weeks and takes place at Sandhurst.
Module D: The two week Army Reserve Commissioning Course at Sandhurst, which is the culmination of your leadership and management training.
