Regional Training Centre

Regional Training Centre

Regional Training Centres were created from the previously existing Specialist Training Teams to provide training for the United Kingdom Territorial Army (TA). They are administered as part of the local Regional Brigade in that area. From mid-2012 they have been renamed Army Training Units.

They run recruit selection provide initial recruit training for all TA soldiers, except those joining UKSF(R) units and the Honourable Artillery Company who are trained within their own units. They are also responsible for training TA Officer Cadets prior their Commissioning Course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS).

They also continue the role of the Specialist Training Teams in providing courses to qualify TA personnel in Range Management and Marksmanship Coaching, Battlefield Casualty Drills and CBRN skills.

Army Training Units are located across the UK, this is important so that Territorial Army recruits attending the first stage of TA Recruit Training, the Trained Soldier Course (Alpha) which is six weekends, or TA soldiers attending wekend specalist training courses do not have to travel great distances. If all TA weekend recruit training was only run at one location some soldiers would have to travel hundreds of miles to attend and this would be impractical for weekend training. Most of the UK population is within 3 hours traveling time of an ATU.

    Him, the vindictive rod of angry justice
    Sent, quick and howling, to the centre headlong;
    I, fed with judgements,in a fleshy tomb, am
    Buried above ground.
    William Cowper (1731–1800)

    The sum and substance of female education in America, as in England, is training women to consider marriage as the sole object in life, and to pretend that they do not think so.
    Harriet Martineau (1802–1876)
