Officers are the talented leaders at the forefront of strategic and operational planning that continues to give our 3rd Generation Army its cutting edge. Besides the vast educational, leadership and personal developmental opportunities, Officers enjoy a compact, fast-paced and challenging career with complete control of their future progression.
With expertise in small-unit leadership and tactical warfighting, Warrant Officers are the trainers and mentors of the skills, knowledge and values necessary for maintaining a professional operational force. Befitting leaders of their stature, they are able to advance their expertise through regular professional training as well as academic upgrading.
Military Experts are groomed for deep specialisation in engineering, nursing, intelligence and other key domains. Armed with advanced technology and expert knowledge, they are established as leaders in their specialised fields. Military Experts enjoy a career that recognises and rewards peak performance with opportunities for professional and personal upgrading.
Our Army strongly encourages our people to constantly upgrade themselves professionally and academically. That’s why we offer a suite of scholarships and study awards that support our servicemen and women in their pursuit of greater knowledge.

On top of these, we have a robust Continuous Learning Academic Study Scheme (CLASS) framework for awarded personnel to continue their education at local universities, polytechnics or ITE colleges.
We turn to some of our ladies to share their experiences in Our Army, and how their careers have changed their lives for the better.
