    Thanks,

    Is this averaged out over a year then or do you have to work a certain amount of Continuous and Non Continuous days per month?

    what would a Sergeant be getting paid if he did say 10 years in the Regulars then decided to transfer to reserves. Would being an ex regular give you a special postion within the reserves and the highest band of daily pay?

    I'm at uni in Birmingham but live in Leeds, so over summer i would be back in Leeds. Would this be an issue with joining the RMR as i presume they don't suspend training over the summer months?

    Hi guys,

    Could someone tell me at what point you start getting paid for attending training evenings at your unit? Is this as soon as you've passed your PRMC or do you get paid before this?

    In the RNR potential recruits are paid for attending training evenings from day 1, even before their application process has finished - you're classed as a 'Probationary Recruit'. Is this also the case for the RMR?

    @Ninja_Stoker is there any scope to update your original post to the current pay/conditions, taking into account seamless transfer for those above the 10 year point etc

    Does anyone have any up to date information on the commitments required by RMR? I’ve read a few threads but I’m not sure if they have been changed/updated...wanting to know how often you need to be away etc.
    Thanks.

    One fairly big change is the fact that the RMR will be mobilising 40 trained ranks per year for up to 12 months duration working in the GD role within the Lead Commando unit. Depending on numbers, as a rough estimate, this could mean as much as one 12-month active service stint for every seven or eight years RMR service.

    Just so that you are aware, this does not automatically mean you would be deployed overseas for the the duration but it could involve an operational deployment for up to six months. You'd still take paid leave (35 days) and have weekends and evenings off, when not duty and in UK, same as the regular service. Bear in mind also, there are a fair number of people in the regular service who also run private businesses or who have part time jobs.

    Further details on this aspect when known.

    What days and weekends does training involve? Is it 6 weekends through the 6 month phase 1a and every Wednesday or Thursday night (whichever one it is) for drill? How much time can I expect to be away whilst in RMR RT? Cheers.

    In RMR recruit training training, if you budget for one drill/training night a week, one weekend one month, alternating two the next, and two, two week stints at CTC, you won't be far wrong.

    Have a read through this, it gives an excellent insight: https://www.royalmarines.uk/threads/rmr-training-overview-from-start-to-finish.114211/

    Good read! So we’ll be able to pick and choose weekends? So long as weekly drill nights are attended...

    It depends how flexible your particular unit is. If recruits miss two consecutive scheduled training weekends and are unable to otherwise complete criteria elements of training, it's back to square one.

    Not. Recruit training is pretty set in its ways.
    Miss certain weekends, and you will be back trooper. Depending on your reasons for missing the training, and depending on what training you have missed, depends on back trooping. (Held back to continue with a later troop).

    As far as I am aware miss 2 weekends and your back trooped.


    The commitment is very high for recruits. There’s more flexibility for missing a drill night, but it depends on what’s training/phys is required to catch up/prepare for the weekends.

    In terms of this, we would be alright to do one weekend every 2 months rotating with 2 every other month?

    I doubt.

    You need to attend a careers presentation at your local RMR unit to clarify the degree of flexibility they are able and prepared to offer.

    Your local AFCO will be able to advise of the next available opportunity.

    Not really. The weekends are set, you are looking at every fortnightly weekend. It’s not a case of them fitting you, you have to fit them.

    Without giving away too much PERSEC, what’s your industry/shift pattern, is that what will restrict you?

    Lads further north in the oil industry can’t join at all due to the their shift pattern, while you can choose what’s RMR days fit your work as a trained rank, as a recruit it’s pretty much fixed.
