There are also opportunities to participate in adventurous training activities in addition to military and professional training.
You will be expected to commit a minimum of either 19 or 27 days a year. This is dependent on the unit you join which, in turn, is determined by your civilian role). Of course, you can do more and you’ll be paid for the time you give to the Army Reserve according to rank you hold and at the end of the training year.
