Former City College Coventry student Cameron Fields marked the end of his first stage of Army Air Corps training with what the Army calls a ‘Passing Out’ Parade at the Army Training Regiment in Pirbright on the 23rd April 2016.
Cameron, 19 and from Canley, completed the Extended Diploma in Public Services course at the College last year and after 14 weeks of hard work and training he officially completed his training.
Cameron said, “This is my dream come true, my mum was in the Army Air Corp, so I grew up watching helicopters taking off and coming in to land so naturally I always wanted to be a pilot. “
“Now I’m qualified as an Air Trooper, I will be based in the School of Army Aviation in Middle Wallop to continue my training. Over the next few years when I have hopefully progressed enough in the ranks I should be put forward for pilot training.”
Jamie Lenton, Course Organiser said, “All of us are so proud of Cameron, his confidence has come on leaps and bounds in the two years he’s been with us.”
“The course Cameron was on is designed to help students prepare for the interview process for the armed services. As well as improving your fitness level, you will have practice interviews with current personnel and complete tailored units including Current Affairs and International War & Conflict.”
Cameron added, “Without Jamie’s input, advice and support I wouldn’t have been able to complete the Army’s initial training. I would recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about a career in the armed services, it’s the perfect preparation.”
