RMP Phase 2???

#1
alrite folks, im joining RMP shortly (waiting on that f**king medical)

was just wondering if anyone had any details about what im going to be doing during phase 2 of my training, since the job brief tells you FA. Also does RMP phase 2 cover driving?

cheers :wink:

I have the Job Brief in front of me. It says you will learn about civilian and military law and maintain a high level of fitness. You will also be made aware of the requirements of a police officer in investigating, detecting and reporting crimes. Finally for those who don't hold a licence, you will learn to drive a car, Land Rover and possibly a motorbike.

RMP have a full NVQ programme and maintain linkswith civil police, often attending their courses.

After four years general policing duties as an RMP you have the opportunity to specialise in a variety of areas including Dog Handler, Special Investigations Branch (the army's equivalent of CID) and Close Protection (the army's bodyguards).

Basically, every other soldier will despise every breath you take.

you'll not become a dog handler.
you'll be lucky if you get your bike licence in the first 5 years of service.
NVQ???? in what?
often attending civpol courses?

that job description is highly optimistic.

:roll: Yep, and the entire RMP lie awake every night worrying themselves sick over what a 'combat navvy' thinks about them.

Awww that's not fair, I remember you were always smiling at work, you weren't on drugs then were you (or is alcohol officially classified as a drug now)?

Anyway, I am being serious, most RMP are happy in their jobs, okay some get pizzed off with certain aspects of it but that is the case in all jobs. I still think the Army, in particular RMP is an excellent choice of career

i agree, it's an excellent choice, best job in t'army. but.... the kids are getting fed a lot of misinformation these days and it's not hard to see why they get very quickly disillusioned. they think they're all going to be dog-handling CP feds on motorbikes... the reality is a bit different.

selective info is the secret of successful army advertising :p thats why im on arrse tryin to learn as much as i can. Might aswell research my corps while waitn on that pesky medical :x

I already know you can transfer to dog handling, CP, or SIB after doing a few years in GPD, but thats understandable. Does anyone know what qualifications im going to leave the Defence Police College with? If any :?

Call me Mr Picky but best job and disillusioned do not seem to complement each other in the same sentence.
