Right i want to join the Royal Marines in about 4 months(would of passed my driving test then)and i was just wondering these questions?

How many months does it take from Signing up to actually starting the PMRC?
And if i pass that and start the proper training how many weekends do you get off,and are you aloud to go home on them free weekends?

Also is there a set date for joining the PMRC(E.G Is there a deadline for this year when you have to join by?)

Help appreciated,Jace

i started in feb, ie application handed in, had to wait until july to be passed fit, and i am only one step away from prmc. just need to re do my pjft.

it depends on what is avaliable and when mate, and how busy the afco is. could be from about 3-6months if your quick and afco isn't busy.

hope this helps.

there are posts on here that show when RT training starts and when PRMCs are. if you go back to the 'welcome' page think they're at the bottom.

yer i would mate, you can stop at anytime you want to mate. if you find out you have something to say in the medical that can take a month or two to clear, then you will have to wait longer.

so i would hand it in.

Yep it all depends although I got my Apt test, Int, Med/Eye test & PJFT done in about 2 weeks(I told them I wanted it done fast though) but had to wait for an RMAD(If you're AFCO does one you'll probably have to do it) before I could do my PRMC so it took longer.
