RMP CP selection

#1
Hi, I'm trying to find some info on the physical requirements of the RMP cp course at Longmoor, specifically with regard to officers. Other searches have only thrown up walt like rubbish.

Cheers

I think you will find that standards are exactly the same for officers as it is for NCOs with a little bit of leadership thrown in!!!

Officers' phys requrements are the same as NCOs'. Are you acually interested in doing the course or are you fishing for something specific?

If your serving RMP, check the provost portal CPU page, it has all the standards posted on there.

Fair enough someone needs to show leadership to RMP Officers,

The CP selection's easy; they give half the course a teddy, and the other half have to try to steal the teddies over the course of a week, whilst the CP team escort the teddies on their important diplomatic missions etc. Then they swap over for the second week. The rest of the course is spent practicing taking their Oakleys on and off (both the Old British and the Horatio Caine school of sunglass-removing) and writing about themselves on the internet.

I recently heard a 'rumour' that RMP (and Service Police CP trained personnel) are struggling to fulfil the commitments to CP attachments (particularly in Afghanistan) and the CP Course is opening up to 'All Arms' in the very near future for a limited period...

The 'rumour' if true would seem to be a sensible solution to an overstretch issue. There are many ex servicemen who have made a successful transition to the civilian aspect of Close Protection and given the appropriate training there is no reason why the should not get involved whilst in the military. I guess it depends on their trade though as I do not suspect that a unit would want one of their own 'disapeaing' from their own trade for 8 months or so.

I would think that if there is an enduring requirement it would also make sense for CP to become a specialist trade where people can opt in and follow it as a distinct career path. This might restrict promotion opportunities but would ensure currency in skills.

October this year is the latest 'rumour'.
