The Military Skills Development Programme and how to get into it | The Military Skills Development System (MSDS) programme is a two-year voluntary service system with the long-term goal of enhancing the SA National Defence Forces deployment capability. This could be the Army, Navy, Air Force or Military Health Service.

Recruits are required to sign up for a period of two years, during which they will receive military training and further functional training in their first year of service. During the second year of service, depending on the duration of their functional orientation, they will be deployed where needed and given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and develop their skills.

This MSDS programme serves as an introduction to the military way of life for all members who are joining the SA Army, Navy, Air Force or Military Health Service for the first time.

Towards the end of the second year, the member will be offered the opportunity for further service in the SA military or leave the military. The opportunity for further service will mainly depend on the member’s performance over the two years and the availability of posts in the relevant functional field and whether or not he or she has been recommended for further service.

Members who are not recommended for, or who are not interested in continuing with their service in the Regular Force, will be required to serve in the Reserve Force after completion of the initial two-year period. This entails 30 days service per annum over a 5 year period.
