The corps has a particularly high proportion of commissioned officers, many of them commissioned from the ranks, and also a high percentage of female members. Non-commissioned personnel join in one of two specialisations: Operator Military Intelligence or Operator Military Intelligence (Linguist). They do their basic 14-week military training at the Army Training Regiment Winchester and their 27-week special-to-arm training at 1 (Templer) Training Company, Chicksands, at the end of which they are promoted to Lance Corporal. Until recently, linguists would then do a 78-week language course, at the end of which they would be promoted to Acting Corporal. At present, both Operator Military Intellignce and Linguist must first complete a tour of duty, and it is typically after about two years service that those opting for language training will return to Chicksands for the 78 week course.
