Sorry if this is not the correct forum for this question. Anyway I was wondering what sort of training is available for personnel once they have completed recruit and occupational training and been assigned to a unit. A bloke I know who was in the Australian Army said he got to do two language courses (Timorese and Persian Farsy) and a Close Personal Protection course while he was serving as a Scout with 5/7 RAR (Mechanized). I was wondering if such options are available to personnel in the Combat Arms of the British Army? I'm especially interested in learning languages, and I can see why the Army would be happy to have bilingual soldiers. Any help would be much appreciated.
