    Evening all,

    I have signed up to Royal Marines forum to gain an insight into training hints and tips for passing the PRMC. I have my PRMC booked in 9 weeks time and would like to align my training and make it more specific with the help of those who have undertaken this element of training previously.

    Something I forgot to mention in my initial post is that I am going RMR. Am I correct in the thinking that reservists and regs will conduct a joint PRMC down at CTC, or will they be separate? Apologies if this question has been done to death, I have literally signed up within the last 20/30 mins

    Cheers

    As far as I'm aware, there are PRMC(R)'s for only reservists, and reservists can also be loaded onto a regular PRMC if they request it. I don't know what the default is.

    Thanks for the update mate. I was under the impression that there used to be a separate PRMC(R) for just reservists & these would usually be carried out at a local detachment.
    However, I did hear a whisper that this process had now been scrapped & hence the reason reservists would conduct their PRMC down at CTC. I was unsure how the training team/PTI’s at lympstone would split up the course, or wether reserve and regular recruits would amalgamate and undertake the course together

    I understand that PRMC(R) courses have been held at CTCRM from this year rather than at regional locations. The post linked below and other posts in the same thread might be informative:

    Regular PRMCs are currently being held on a weekly basis. I'd guess that PRMC(R)s might be separately run courses because of numbers. But logic suggests that maximum versatility would be achieved by RMR candidates and Regular candidates attending the same courses. Hopefully someone on here might confirm.
