Direct Short Service Commission (DSSC) and Short Service Combatant (SSC) Commissions are popular terms in the Nigerian military. A lot of people tend to confuse their meanings, which is understandable. This guide will help you understand the key differences between DSSC and SSC.

Direct Short Service Commissions and Short Service Combatant (SSC) Commissions have more similarities than differences.

They are both short-term military training exercises (usually 1 year). And they are both targeted at military personnel who have served in their respective units for not less than 5 years OR civilians who graduated from recognized higher institutions.

Difference between DSSC & SSC

Direct Short Service are for applicants looking to further in their respective fields of study in the Nigerian military. For instance, if you graduated as a medical doctor, then the DSSC will be most suitable for you. Short Service Combatant Commissions on the other hand are for applicants who which to get deployed to infantry, artillery or other combatant units upon the completion of their one year military training.

One key noticeable difference in the application requirement for DSSC and SSC is that the age difference. DSSC permits much older applicants (up to 40 for medical doctors) while SSC is for applicants between the ages of 23 & 27.

The reason SSC requires much younger applicants is because there’s so much need for strength and vibrancy to be able to participate in combatant drills.

Getting deployed to combatant departments is not something suitable for persons up to 40, which DSSC accepts.

However, to apply for both demands either a HND (Higher National Diploma) or a degree, with grades not less than Lower credit and Second Class lower respectively.

I’m sure you now understand the key differences between Direct Short Service Commissions (DSSC) & Short Service Combatant (SSC) Commissions.
