    Welcome to the family,



    It’s great to have you as a potential RM Recruit.


    Who are we and what do we offer you?


    The role of the Enhanced Digital Outreach Cell (EDOC).

    Our role is to offer support and guidance throughout your journey to becoming a Royal Marines Commando. We are all serving Royal Marines and help you to understand what it is like to undergo training, as well as sign posting you to the most up to date training and nutrition tips. Throughout your joining process the AFCO will remain your first point of contact for application queries and problems.


    We operate between the following times:

    Mon – Fri: 0830 – 1230. 1330 – 2000.

    Saturday: 0830 – 1430.

    The Recruitment Journey

    See attached flyer for a description of the joining process, additional information and hyperlinks.


    Additional preparation tools:

    Your success is in your hands, you must take every opportunity to increase your prospects of passing each stage.


    1. YouTube based guidance sanctioned by Royal Marines Physical Training Instructors.


    1. RMAD (Royal Marines Assessment Day) a fitness assessment run by a mobile team of Royal Marines all around the country. This is an excellent way to assess where you stand in terms of fitness and readiness for Royal Marines training, attending at least one RMAD is recommended.


    1. Look at Life, an opportunity to spend 5days at the Commando Training Centre undergoing recruit style training to give you a real insight into what you can expect from us and so that you understand what we are looking for from yourself in terms of fitness, attitude and bearing.

    1. Take part in Royal Marines style ‘phys’ at a Royal Marines Reserve (RMR) unit. See the linkfor a full list of the RMR units. Each main unit location has several detachments, as an example; RMR Merseyside has detachments in Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds.



    Motivational Preparation College for Training

    There are 29 Motivational Preparation Colleges for Training (MPCT) where by you can prepare mentality as well as physically, they also have a proven track record of being able to help students that have not had a positive experience in school to succeed. The MPCT also have a bespoke Look@ Life course (mentioned above) at CTC RM. You can start and finish as it suits your circumstances, rather than wait for the traditional intake date and end of course date.

    Aimed at 16 – 19 year olds, the college typically runs between the hours of 0930 – 1530. You may be entitled to a Bursary to help with travel, uniform and lunch (income less than £25,000).

    The recruitment process can be a lengthy journey, it is essential that you understand the medical process and the importance of administering the medical paperwork in a timely manner.

    Once you have successfully completed the PRMC, you must ensure that you stay focused and maintain your physical preparations in readiness for recruit training to minimise the chance of injury.



    Useful Links

    Below are several links from both the Royal Navy / Royal Marines website and YouTube that offer a wealth of advice.

    This is an excellent, fairly recent scheme.

    ALL people registering an interest in joining the Royal Marines on the Royal Navy website can communicate directly with the Commando Training Centre (CTC) on everything to do with your physical preparations to join the Royal Marines. Whether you are already in UK or applying from overseas. In other words how to get yourself fit and ready to pass the physical demands of selection. CTC are there for training advice, they do not handle your application to join.

    As indicated in the email, the administration of your application and getting you through the process up to the selection course (PRMC) is handled entirely by your Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO).

    For overseas applicants, the best way to communicate with CTC with regards physical training advice is via email. Be aware, they will not have visibility of your application to join.

    Hopefully this helps clarify.
