I had thought about training to become an officer when I leave Uni and then join the HAC, but on their website I noticed they say that officers drop rank to join so that made me think manybe it's better if I enlist with HAC as a trooper rather than an officer? Therefore I have some questions. a. How long does training in the HAC last? b. What kind of training is available? c. How long after training before I would be sent to serve in Afghanistan or Iraq? d. Can I specialise in the HAC? e. Will I get to learn how to use foreign weapons? I know I've asked a lot of questions but I think they are good questions to as before I decide what to do for certain.
