The Royal Marines turning civilians into commandos

In general, we can spend more of our budget on training per soldier than other, larger countries who run and maintain a massive mechanized force along with their huge military.

In that regard, the basic Canadian grunt is trained in a large number of areas, and then can further that training through advanced courses(and then specialization) , assuming your CO allows it. Yes, they’re going through budget cuts right now, but I have a few buddies in the Army who basically had free choice since most combat duties are over. One of them had already gone through his urban warfare instruction course and mountain warfare course, then for fun did his parachutist(paratrooper) qualification, para jumpmaster qualification, and then para instructor qualification. He did that after four tours in Afghanistan, and then decided he wanted to swap over to the Navy and become an electrician.

Anyway, check out the life of a basic grunt here:

Click on the training tab to see what we get.

After all of this, keep in mind that they’re not really hiring for infantry right now, there’s very little need. You can apply for it along with three other trades, and you’ll basically get put where they need you. Also keep in mind that it’s nothing like you see in movies and video games – you’re going to spend a whole lot of time getting yelled at for mistakes other people made, getting told what to do by people younger than you, and then after four years you’ll realize that unless you chose a trade relevant to civilian jobs, you’ll probably be better off staying in the forces than working a minimum wage job outside of them. This is especially true now that the war(s) are over.
