    With the Sniper role not being its own specialisation, is there a chance to train as a sniper within the RMR?

    if so what is the process?

    It would be possible with the support of your Unit and CTCRM. You would have to justify a place on a regular course and potentially do it without pay, unless your Unit sees the value. It has been known, but a very rare occurrence.

    Sniper comes under the PW branch, spoke to some lads at CTC this week who are currently on there PW(S) 3’s course. The branch is toppers and that’s with regular full time lads so it’s doubtful you would get on it but not impossible.

    No. Not unless you are an ex regular sniper, and even then you could be hard pushed through lack of continuous training. The RMR struggle to train its lads as it is without taking on quals.

    And as far as I was aware the Snipers qual is a specialisation, under the PW 3 bracket.

    Under FCF it's now changed to a spec in it's own right- Scout Sniper.
