The Army Parachute Regiment have vacancies for 50 individuals to train as Paratroopers.

You will need to attend a Parachute Regiment Assessment Course which is held at The Parachute Regiment Assessment Centre (PRAC) at Catterick. The course comprises of a series of physical tests to examine your durability and physical fitness. The assessment covers three days and upon successful completion you will be given a start date to join a platoon in PARA Company. An outline of the three day program is as follows: Day 1 Introduction to PRAC and familiarisation to barrack routine followed by a short presentation on yourself which is to last no more than five minutes. The terrain at ITC Catterick is undulating which will require the potential recruits to run up and down hilly areas, therefore individuals should ensure that prior to attending PRAC they have conditioned themselves to hill running to improve basic stamina and fitness.
