Army recruitment process

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    My boyfriend is currently going through the recruitment process of joining the army, I was just wondering he's just doing his selection stage at the moment, how long would it be till he starts his training? I've been looking it up and I can't find anything on it. I know it can vary greatly and it's such a long process. I just wondered how long it took some people so I just have a rough idea!

    It depends entirely on what regiment and trade he's joining, where he will be doing his training and also how well he does on selection, as the higher grades will get pushed through quicker.

    When I joined 6 and a half years ago, I did my selection around this time of year and I was starting basic training the next Feb, but that depends on how full intakes are and where he's going.

    Not a great help but it really is just a waiting game.
