    RN to RM

    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering how easy it would be in my position to change my application from Royal Navy to Royal Marines.

    I have completed everything up to interview stage for my ETME application so if I were to contact my AFCO in regards to applying for the RM, would I have to start a fresh from RT again?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Your PJFT would certainly need to be redone, as the RM PJFT is different.

    What prompted this change of mind?

    Yeah I was thinking that, but things like the RT and Medical would be subject to passing rates I am guessing?

    I know this probably sounds small minded but I watched a couple of documentaries and seeing how much respect that people have for the Marines. It seems a lot more physically demanding too which I LOVE!

    If you have passed the RT for ET(ME), that should cover you for RM as well.

    Yep, no problem prior to joining.

    Contact AFCO, re-take PJFT prior to interview, then PRMC. Guidance here: RM Bite Size - How to join - PRMC - Potential Royal Marines Course forum
    Always verify any advice at your nearest AFCO
