Reserve Environmental Health Technician
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 a Reserve 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.
