    Apologies in advance if this has been asked elsewhere or if I’ve missed the answer somewhere on the forum, but I’ve heard a couple of times that one of the things that gets asked at your interview is a breakdown of RT. I’m just wondering how in-depth you have to go ie just knowing phase 1 is foundation and individual skills and times scales or do you need to know week by week in detail like each exercise etc. Cheers lads.

    Whilst waiting for a definitive I can tell you my lad was asked very little about RT, I think it was literally duration and what are the commando tests. He was 17 so a lot was asked around his motivations for joining, sports he played, any sporting achievements etc. He also got a grilling on current deployments.
    It’s like any job interview, be early, be smartly dressed and show you’ve taken the time to research the organisation you want to employ you. And somehow try and relax:)

    I think it's probably the different phases and the Commando tests are the main things to know about RT.
