Int Corps P Coy question...

#1
Soon to be joining the Corps and wanted to know from anyone serving or past serving if there are concrete opportunities to undertake All Arms Commando or P Coy course as well as the Jumps course? I have read that either one of these is needed to join SFSG (presuming there is an INT detachment at St Athan)!

I turned down a career with the RM for the Corps but am still keen to get my lid and generallly kick the arse out of it wherever I can! Also has anyone undertaken JSG selection?

Thanks guys/girls!

I'm not Int corps Genius, but I think "Barbgenius" is refering to BARB scores? (Int fail), besides I'm only here to ask why after Passing out as either a Royal Marine or a RM ocifer you decided to leave the Corps and that career and join the Int Corps, however refering to the Int corps as "the Corps" tells me the career within the RM Corps was really just in your head.

Good luck with your chosen career :thumright:

Not sure what you mean. I passed PRMC and at a later date POC and was given a start date at Lympstone. However I also passed Regimental selection at DISC and am due to start shortly.

Ironically mate there is a guy in my troop who did just that (left the RM and rejoined the Int Corps). Back to the original question though?

How did you have a Troop if you didn't start training? Or is it a friend from PRMC/POC?
It is possible to do the courses you mentioned, though even Paras seem to have a hard time getting a jumps course thses days.

IF you pass the human hell that is phase 1 training and make it to Templer Company you will be streamed into a series of sections according to your phys at Pirbright, scores on the 'Crossfit Challenge' in the Chicksands gym and general allyness.

Those lucky enough to earn a place in the 'top' section by strong performance in the areas above must complete a compulsory 'centurion challenge' on week 2 of the OPMI course. This includes a 100 miler around the Bedfordshire countryside carrying 50kg followed by a 'centurion' in Abbot's bar. IF and only IF you pass this arduous test you have passed in to 'the section' and from this point onward it is mandatory to bring a protein shake container with you when you enter the junior ranks mess and wear short sleeve order all year round. Any indescretions may see you end up with the geeks in the IMINT wing. You have been warned!

During Phase 2 you can also undertake an aptitude test for the UWKF (Under Water Knife Fighting) course, if you wish to add this specialisation to your skill set. It comes with a nice badge.

Assuming you stay in 'the section', following getting your Lance Jack, you will be loaded straight onto P Coy and your jumps course, followed by the AACC and selection. Unfortunately I cannot reveal what awaits you after this for reasons for PERSEC but please be assured you will get to collect as many badges as you like.

Firstly, Her Majesty's Royal Marines are THE Corps.

Secondly, having not even started YO training you didn't "turn down a career" in THE Corps, you failed to even begin one.

Thirdly, if by some divine miracle you manage to start AND finish (crazy concept I know) training with the Int Corps, and happen to be drafted to the SFSG you'll simply rock up like most of the other atts and hats and be given the maroon beret for **** all.

Finally, you are an absolute scran bag.

Is this a green hat fetish?

Oh, hey, come down. I've heard members of some American organisation saying things like that about their own er, circle, and frankly it was a little offensive.

And; our Hat, as is said elsewhere on this means, is greener.

I don't know where you're from originally so it's hard to answer that post.
However, in the context of responding to the OP where her refers to "the RM" and "the [Int] Corps" my point still stands. In Britain the AAC are not the Corps, REME are not the Corps, the Royal Marines are the Corps.

I will admit to that being influenced by professional pride though, as any man that has worked for the right to wear his cap badge can understand. Again, admittedly the work put in is all relative, but for this man to casually commit to word "giving up a career in the RM to join the Corps" as if they're even marginally similar in terms of testing a man physically and mentally, offends my eyes. Especially having not even spent one day in training.

Thus, he is a toilet of the highest order.

fubar84- Originally, I was supposedly a truck driver (RCT) although the swine never taught me to drive a truck, which I thought a bit of a swiz. They were suspiciously keen on orienteering, so I spent ages buggering about in dank forests instead, wishing I was in the Merchant Marine or even back in the Globetrotter...

Eventually, I found my way through the dark and dank Hampshire forestry to Templer Bks, way over there in Kent, where the blinding light shone onto my innocent forehead, in the silly way that nasty Hollywood flicks do that particular trick.

You may be right in your general point though, have you been through the Corps - the Intelligence Corps, that is - series of training courses?

I think everybody refers to which ever Corps they are part of as "The Corps". Except the signals who have the annoying trait of adding Royal as a prefix every time.
