Based on a 5-year plan, approved for the comprehensive skill training, targets 100 percent coverage of soldiers through general, basic, and specialized skills training.

The soldiers have a great role to play in maintaining security and defending the country, and therefore it is necessary to provide support to them and to improve the quality of military service, Brigadier-General Mousa Kamali, head of the human resources of the Armed Forces said, ISNA reported.
