On completion of this 6-week course, Candidates will achieve a Level 2 Award in Preparation for Military Service whilst with MPCT and will have achieved an outcome under assessment conditions. This will allow an informed and objective decision to be made regarding the Candidate’s suitability to progress to the next pipeline stage by their Recruiter.

Any Candidates that do not achieve the assessment criteria, will be offered additional support by rolling onto the SDC+ course ensuring there is no gap in support.
