HMS Collingwood is one of the Royal Navy’s engineering training bases.
They have 4 training Units – Weapon Engineering Principles Training Unit (WEPTU), Weapons Engineering Training Unit (WETU), System Engineers Management Training (SEMT) and the Explosives Training Unit (EXPTU). Their facilities range from simple teaching-labs to full weapon systems and associated simulators.
Officers from Collingwood have kindly agreed to give us a tour of the facilities. We have also been invited to be spectators during a parade. This is quite an honour.
