    Hi all
    Sorry if this question’s been asked before but, what are the main differences between the two?
    Best wishes

    Most (but not all) PRMRC's are conducted in the region rather than CTC.

    Although the standards are broadly the same, there tends to be a greater degree in latitude to take into account that RMR Recruit Training is spread over a longer period with a more gradual build-up in fitness (augmented by holding troops) and longer periods of recovery between organised phys sessions.

    So far as I'm aware, at present a PRMRC conducted away from CTC is not accepted in lieu of a regular sevice PRMC for entry.

    Thank you, Ninja.

    I believe the PRMRC for my detachment (Bristol) is held at Lympstone.
    I'll be cracking on and hopefully pass it when fitness is at that standard.

    Yes Bristol conduct the PRMCR at CTC from a Friday night until Sunday afternoon. It follows the same pattern as a regular PRMC, and you conduct exactly the same tests, it’s just that the timeframe is condensed. You will probably do the 3 miler, gym tests and bottom field on the Saturday and the endurance course on the Sunday morning. So the Saturday will be a complete hangout, and you will be in bits doing the EC the next day! Bristol ranks are lucky in that they utilise CTC throughout training. So when it comes to being there for the 2 week courses they already have a heads up compared to those from other units.

    Same with RMR London. PRMC is done at Lympstone over a weekend. Same tests as the regs, just condensed into 2 days of solid phys. Plenty of diaries of PRMC(R)s on here, so have a read.

    Thank you.
    Will certainly work well beyond the standards set (e.g. 3 miler in 22:30) to ensure I've got the best chance of passing it.
