    Evening gents. Hope everyone is getting along ok in their various stages of a career in the RM. I have a quick question which should be fairly easy to answer, as usual I appreciate any response! During RT, are we issued with trainers in which we complete all phys sessions? Or do we bring our...

    Diet during RT

    Ok so I'll split my reply into two.. 1) Regarding the food situation, I was pleasantly surprised. Unlimited porridge with jam for breakfast, half decent hot choices for dinner and tea. Certain vegetables are unlimited, and fruit is available too. Most of the lads were complaining about the...

    The academic side of the course doesn't bother me, and neither does the low pass rate, to be honest. The best course of action does seem to be take a ping, serve as whatever spec they give me for 2 years, apply in advance for the MA position and go from there. Early days yet, of course, but...

    Medical Assistant

    @ThreadpigeonsAlpha thanks mate. In your experience, would it be best to pick MA as my first choice sq straight out of RT? Also, would there be any point picking 3 really popular specialisations as my 3 choices?

    Thanks for the help! Sorry for my ignorance, but when you say 'get your preferences on JPA', what do you mean? (I've privately messaged the guide to see what I can learn from him)

    Medical Assistant

    Well I'm certainly going for that green beret, no question. Regarding your final point: Is it wise to register interest in the MA course as soon as I finish RT? After serving the initial 2 years as general duty, would you recommend choosing a different spec with a short waiting list before...

    Medical Assistant

    Alright gents? Hope everyone is having a decent bank holiday weekend. This is a relatively straightforward query, and one which I'm sure has been discussed before on this forum. However, I'm always keen to keep up with the most recent information. I want to specialise as a medical assistant...

    Diet during RT

    Each to their own my friend - food isn't a 'small' thing. It's probably the most important aspect of life in my opinion. You have one body; it just makes sense pure and simple to give it what it needs. But yes, you're correct in saying I will have to eat the scran supplied and get on with it...

    Diet during RT

    Thanks for the honest reply mate. I can assure you I will strive to eat piles of the best quality food available to me.. That's been my attitude towards nutrition for years and it always will. Just out of curiosity, what would a standard day of eating look like for you during training mate? I...
