The wing was established in China bay in 1993 as the Combat Training School. This was to initially meet the growing demand for basic training as the only sole training establishment at Diyatalawa could not cater for the rising demand. Soon, the school accustomed itself of conduct a multitude of training tasks diversifying its role. In 2011, the CTS was retitled as Ground Training wing to reflect its true role and scope.
