You’ll finish with 39 weeks’ technical training at the Royal School of Military Survey in Hermitage, learning how to compile, prepare and manage geographical data.

GET QUALIFIED

The Army will pay for you to gain valuable qualifications. These could include:
  • Military Engineer (Geographic Technician)
  • Apprenticeships in Public Service, Communications, Engineering and Logistics
  • Leadership and Management qualifications from GCSE to Degree level
  • Variety of driving licences

You should be:
  • Sex: Male or Female
  • Regular Army age: 16.6 - 32.11 years
