-Masters in being able to sleep anywhere
-Advanced A levels in drinking, though some lads I know have got their Masters.
-Diploma in Dripping but cracking on anyway.

Aw and I got level 1 Stand up paddle board instructor once but that was w*nk

All jokes aside there are several different things the corps offers including resettlement training. The money you receive in order for resettlement will depend on how long you have served etc.

You get what they call learning credits which will pay money towards courses, they also offer discounted courses normally affiliated with local collages.
It can sometimes be hard completing courses when in the marines as manning for trips away arnt always planned a long time ahead. So for example you could sign up to a night course but may have to go to otway for 3 months or ship for 6 they will try and be flexible but it's not always possible.

when you leave the RM you are also entitled to ELC (Enhanced Learning Credits) which is valid up to 5 years after leaving and is 3 blocks of £2000 that can be used on courses that meet set criteria such as L3 and above on the national qualifications framework. If you use £800 on a course that is all of one of the £2000 blocks gone. In some courses you can combine the money blocks, you also have to pay a percentage of the course yourself i "think" it is currently at least 20% if not more.

You can use them for pretty much any course there are a few conditions but you wont be doing any courses while your in training so you will have at least 9 months to find out all the details.
