TA Commando Course?

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by JohnHW, May 20, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know if/how TA personnel can get onto the Reserve Forces Commando Course?

    I'm currently in the OTC and looking to join a TA unit. I could do the course through the RMR but this means starting training from the very beginning again.

    Is there anyway a robust member of the TA can get on the course. I'd be happy to do it without pay so it wouldn't be a case of innefective use of MTD's.

    I'm enthusiastic and want this challenge.
  2. Yes, they can. You need to join a Commando trained unit though.

    Honestly, i'd just start training again. That way you get an instant group of friends/acquaintances and are on a level playing field. I did.
