Ireland's Defence Forces are known and respected around the world. The values that Irish Defence Forces are best known worldwide for are learned at home at the Curragh and taught in places like the Potential NCOs Course.
All of Ireland's future military leaders will come through the Defence Forces Potential NCOs Course at some stage. In the video below, we've dramatically captured what's involved for aspiring non-commissioned officers.
As Comdnt Gavin Egerton, officer in charge of the NCO Training Wing, explains in the video, "the NCO Training Wing is the centre of excellence for all non-commissioned officer training in the Irish Army." This video provides an in-depth look at the skills that are taught both in the classroom and in the field on this course. However, it's just not just artillery that potential NCOs grow familiar with on this course. The Defence Forces endeavour to enstill leadership values in all aspiring officers.
