Date Started at MPCT
I joined the Royal Engineers as a Combat Engineer which consists of bridge building, demolitions, mine warfare, field fortification, and did further training to become a Communications Specialist throughout my career. I have deployed on many different types of exercises all over the UK and internationally including, Kenya, Cyprus, Jordan, and one operational tour of Afghanistan in 2011 with the Counter-Improvised Explosive Devise Task Force. I spent my last four years at an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Regiment (EOD) with 101 Engineer Regiment (EOD) based in Saffron Walden where I became a search team 2IC for high risk search.
"Having spent a year at MPCT Birmingham I can tell you that I like the structure of the daily routine that the college provides for the learners. Taking Physical Training lessons and seeing the progress that all the learners make towards their fitness goals and then seeing them progress into the Military is one of the biggest rewards of the job."
