    Apologies if this isn't the correct sub.

    Basically just wondering how often there are intakes for recruit training, I read somewhere it's every 2 weeks but I can't for the life of me find that info anywhere.

    Thanks!

    Every 2 weeks? I'm actually surprised they get enough numbers at recruit training to run it every 2 weeks especially with the application process and selection being a lot harder to pass than the other forces.

    I know prmc runs right up until xmas but is there a cut off for rt before xmas or just after it where they don't do any?

    @Lukey94 It's supposed to be every two weeks but I was at CTC the other week and its more like every 4-6 week at the moment.

    Thanks for the reply. I'd imagine it wouldn't be such a short time frame inbetween intakes, still not too bad though. I'm hoping as an army rejoiner it could get my application sorted a bit quicker. Are you currently in training?

    Cheers
