Please note that joining the Nigerian Army is not for the faint of heart because their training regime is not easy. You have to condition your mind and body to meet up to the challenging conditions of military training because you will be pushed to the limit your body can take.
Military training means definite but very different things to different people. To the commander of a military unit, it means exercising troops in the field or sailors at sea so that they operate as an integrated, coordinated unit.
To military personnel managers, it means preparing and certifying individuals across a full spectrum of occupational specialties that include cooks, dog handlers, tank turret repairers, radar technicians, and fighter pilots.
To developers and providers of major military systems, it means exercises performed in simulators or on the systems themselves. To all concerned, it means preparing individuals from a civilian society to perform as professional military personnel.
Military training is distinguished from other forms of training by its emphases on discipline, just-in-case preparation, and the training of collectives.
The Nigerian military have continued to train new recruits to tackle the terror threat of Boko Haram in North East Nigeria and other security threats in other parts of the country.
Boko Haram’s Islamist insurgency began in 2009 and has killed at least 20,000 and forced more than 2.6 million from their homes. Dozens of recruits undergo periodic training at various army headquaters across the country.
