We need every soldier and officer to be fit and well, so that we have an active, capable Army. That means protecting our troops’ health and wellbeing, wherever they are in the world. As an Environmental Health Technician, you advise commanders on environmental health, occupational hygiene, preventing disease and environmental protection. Whenever troops are deployed, you go out beforehand on reconnaissance missions to check out the location and risks. It’s important work – but don’t worry – you’ll get the highest standard of training.
Find where you belong.
If you want to be an Environmental Health Technician, you’ll start with your initial military training which will teach you how to be a soldier – this will cover everything from fieldcraft to how to handle a rifle. Your initial training will be at either Pirbright or Winchester and last for 14 weeks.
Then you’ll begin practical training at the Defence School of Healthcare Education. At the same time, you’ll do a BSc (Hons) degree in Environmental Health from Leeds Beckett University. You will gain a NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and a BPCA Certificate in Pest Control over three years.
All Environmental Health Technicians can gain postgraduate qualification throughout their career and you may also have the opportunity to study at MSc level.
SHOW PEOPLE WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF
We’ll be with you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. From the moment you begin your training you’ll get all the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you’ll soon get promoted, which means more responsibility and extra pay.
Become an Environmental Health Technician and you’ll:
– Earn £15,671 during training. When your training is finished, and you join your Unit, pay will rise to £21,600.
– Receive subsidised accommodation and facilities, increasing your disposable income
– Receive free medical and dental health cover
– Have the continuous access promotional opportunity and to continually progress your career
– Be sponsored to earn valuable civilian-recognised qualifications
– Take part in Adventurous Training and be able to play your favourite sports.
