Bury-based Military Standard Training, which helps to prepare young people for life in the armed forces is celebrating after three of its students have fast-tracked their way into the Army. Louis Allen, Thomas Ryan and Alex Sydall all started the 6-month training course run by MST in August with an initial target date to complete by March. However, after just six weeks, the budding soldiers completed their initial training and gained early entry into Army Foundation College, Harrogate. All three are now in the Army. Managing Director Andy Emmert explains, “We’d usually expect students to take up to six months to complete our course and so we’re extremely proud of all three students for their amazing achievement. It’s down to their sheer determination and hard work, along with the unwavering support and dedication of the staff here at MST”. Military Standard Training was launched to bridge the gap between young people leaving traditional education and starting military training. The company provides a robust, free of charge course lasting up to 26 weeks, to give 16-24-year-olds the foundations and basic skills required for life in the forces.
