Regional Training Centres were created from the previously existing Specialist Training Teams to provide training for the United Kingdom Territorial Army (TA). They are administered as part of the local Regional Brigade in that area.[1]

They run recruit selection[2] provide initial recruit training for all TA soldiers, except those joining UKSF(R) units and the Honourable Artillery Company who are trained within their own units.[3][4][5] They are also responsible for training TA Officer Cadets prior their Commissioning Course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS)[6]

They also continue the role of the Specialist Training Teams in providing courses to qualify TA personnel in Range Management and Marksmanship Coaching, Battlefield Casualty Drills and CBRN skills.[7]
