The graduates have completed their basic training course, and these included training in applications and various branches of knowledge, as well as theoretical and practical lessons on the skills required by the tasks and security work entrusted to them while undertaking security jobs and special assignments.

It is noteworthy that Saudi Arabia started allowing Saudi women to serve in the armed forces during the year 2019. Both men and women in the Kingdom can apply for positions in the military through the defence ministry’s unified admission portal.

Women can sign up to join the Saudi Arabian Army, Royal Saudi Air Defence, Royal Saudi Navy, Royal Saudi Strategic Missile Force, and Armed Forces Medical Services.

They can also be recruited as soldiers, lance corporals, corporals, sergeants, and staff sergeants.
