Am going to be applying for the RMR in August/September and have a couple of quick questions about the RMR POC.

1) How does the POC work for RMR Potential Officers? Is it held at the weekend like the Unit Selection weekend or do they have to attend the regular POC?

2)If they attend the regular POC are they not at an advantage given that they have to have completed RMR Phase 1 training before they can begin officer selection? Or is this adjusted for by the team that runs the POC?

3)Last one - if you get selected then how does RMR officer training work? Regular recruit training lasts 32 weeks (if you arent backtrooped or injured) and on average it takes a year-18months for a reservist to earn their green lid. Regular YO training on the other hand lasts 15 months - is this reflected in the RMR officer training? I know that you have to complete the TA PTC but surely that is no comparison for a regular YOs training!

(Sorry if these q's have been asked before - did a search but couldn't find anything)

Cheers,

Matt

I'll let 'RM Recruiting Officer' answer your query Matt, rather than cloud the issue as he'll be up to speed on this, being a qualified ACLO.
