In pursuance of the State Program for the Development of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, a fundamentally new type of military service is being introduced – voluntary service in military reserve. Training of reservists should ensure the formation of military training resources to meet the needs of the Armed Forces.
The urgent need for such specialists is evidenced by the fact that one of the main conditions for employment of candidates for law enforcement agencies, departments and institutions of Ukraine is the presence of an officer’s rank.
Guided by the above, in 2002 the Chernihiv National University of Technology organized the training of students under the program of reserve officers запасу.
Currently, the Department of Military Training of Chernihiv National Technological University operates on the basis of an agreement with Sumy State University, namely with the Department of Military Training of SSU, established on the basis of the Military Institute of Missile Troops and Artillery, and Ivan Kozhedub National Air Force University.
