Training and serving in 62 Reserve Artillery Regiment enables people to develop skills and qualities that can be transferred directly to the civilian workplace.
Team working, self-confidence, leadership qualities, reliability and respect for diversity are skills and qualities that all Reservists develop - skills and qualities that are highly prized by employers.
Training in first aid and health and safety makes members of 62 Reserve Artillery Regiment quick to respond when an accident happens at work. Weapons drill and parade drill develop precision, co-ordination and accuracy - useful skills for anyone using expensive machinery or technology in their civilian career. Learning the skills that the military uses in the field develops resourcefulness, perseverance and the ability to improvise in unfamiliar or difficult circumstances.
"Practical examples...All members of 62 Reserve Artillery Regiment complete a Health and Safety Manual Handling course annually, and every training exercise is evaluated by reservists in a Safety Hazard Risk Assesment."
Attributes such as organisational loyalty, reliability, integrity and confidence are less easy to measure, but thanks to their training and practical experience, reservists have them in abundance. All Army Reservists are given the chance to train in adventurous and physically demanding activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, trekking and hill walking, The Reserve Forces place a high value on such activities because they are character-building and help develp fitness, self-confidence, determination and perseverance. They also teach individuals how to lead or work within a team, solve problems, communicate, present ideas and organise a complex event or process.
“No member of 62 Reserve Artillery Regiment has ever failed the Defence Forces Compulsory Random Drugs Test. The Unit was tested as recently as July 2007.”
