Already this month, thousands of Swiss army recruits will learn how to perform a military salute and carry a machine gun without leaving their homes.
A total of 12,000 young men and women have been drafted into the Swiss army this year, and half of them will receive basic military training online.
The original form of military training is associated, as you might guess, with the coronavirus pandemic. The remote start of service is intended to reduce the risk of the spread of coronavirus.
Online military training starts on January 18th.
From that day forward, and for three weeks, the Swiss recruits will study theory for six hours a day, four hours a week for physical exercise. To organize the training of the distance group, a special mobile application with a curriculum will be used.
After the end of the “retirement” recruits will join the rest of the draftees, having passed a preliminary test for coronavirus.
Compulsory military service in Switzerland is provided for men aged 19-31, women can take military training at will. The course of a young soldier lasts 4–4.5 months, then those liable for military service are called up for a 3-week training camp every two years.
