The Stormtrooper Corps[18] was an independent military branch that operated under the Army of the First Order.[8] The Corps was divided into legions of 8,000 stormtroopers and stationed on planets as well as Star Destroyers.[12]

While most stormtroopers were taken from birth and trained, the First Order also used recruits who received the same training as the conscripted from birth soldiers. Without the academies of the Galactic Empire, the First Order resorted to training their growing army on their Star Destroyers.[source?]

First Order stormtrooper training was much more standardized than that of the Imperial stormtroopers. Because of this their training was higher quality overall. They received training in counter-insurgency, guerrilla warfare, and commando raids. Stormtroopers also received non-tactics related training like combat medicine. They conducted live-fire exercises and drill as well as rigorous training that helped to create an emphasis on improvisation on the battlefield.[source?]
