Reserve Officer passes out of Sandhurst

Congratulations to all the Officer Cadets who have recently passed out of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Reserve Officer 2nd Lt Matthew Ovens of 150 Regiment was one of those who has completed his Commissioning Course.

He said that the best part of the course was “Doing our Casevac down the wish stream on our last exercise – a Sandhurst tradition.”

The course he recently completed is the Commissioning Course Short which takes eight weeks to complete and is based directly on the Regular Commissioning Course.

It is an intense, challenging course designed to teach the fundamentals of soldiering and develop Officer Cadets as leaders.

Someone who holds an Army Reserve commission will have learned a wide range of valuable leadership and managerial skills that can also be used in the civilian workplace.
