https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/careers/covid19 The Royal Marines has temporarily adapted its fitness testing requirements by conducting a strength assessment conducted over Zoom. Your careers adviser will be in touch with the details of how to prepare for the assessment and what the now virtual assessment (vPJFT+) entails. With regards to the PRMC, under COVID-19, it would be irresponsible to conduct the course due to social distancing protocols. To that end, RM Recruit Training has been adapted to allow for a graduated conditioning phase lasting 4 weeks on entry to CTCRM – the Recruit Orientation Phase (ROP) – which will culminate in the Commando Aptitude Assessment (CAA). Recruits successfully passing the CAA will progress to RM Recruit Training. The Royal Marines Careers area of the Royal Navy website will be amended to reflect any permanent changes in due course.
