Home Government Defence and SecurityThe National ServiceNational Service Training

Training of the National Service youth is the responsibility of the TPDF. Apart from military and vocational training, National Service youth are taught civic education, an important element in cultivating nationalism. At its peak in the mid-1970s the National Service produced about 10,000 recruits annually. From its inception, this large number of paramilitary trained people constituted a considerable reserve army.  Requirements for enrollment in national service are the following:

• 18 years and above
• Tanzania citizen
• Basic primary education and above
• Physically and mentally sound.

The National Service is especially focused now to absorb the huge number of youths leaving primary and secondary schools and providing them with skills, thereby reducing unemployment, and building national unity.
