There are two ways you can join the South Africa Reserve Force Division, either through the Military Skills Development System (MSDS) or through direct recruitment.

The MSDS is a Department of Defence programme that serves as the entry-level platform for young South Africans who want to follow a career in the South African National Defence Force.

If you're selected to join the South African National Defence Force through the MSDS, you'll undergo an initial period of 2 years voluntary service. After your initial 2 years of service you'll be offered a 5 year contract to join the reserves which can be renewed until the age of 65.

Direct recruitment is only applicable to people with special skills such as engineers, IT specialists, diesel mechanics etc.
