Training is a fundamental aspect of UKSF, our training goes the extra mile and our operators are expected to host enthusiasm and in return we offer the highest grade of training, unobtainable elsewhere.
We are careful to ‘trim the fat’ we are not a roleplaying unit and we don’t ask our members to learn unnecessary details however we do ask you enjoy and work hard them to learn everything they need to, to be able to soldier efficiently even if it is just through a video game.
We ask all members to complete basic training which consists of:
