Don't think my opening post came across in the right way.

When i mentioned pen pusher i was referring to the fact that most of what i have been told by ex navy/marines about officer trades/specialisations is that they spend most of the time doing admin work.

When i mentioned that i didn't want to be just a marine, i meant that i wanted to focus on a specialist trade then do the aacc so that i could do the specialist trade and have the combat element.

I can't find much online about what trades typically do the aacc other than medics

Until this thread is moved to somewhere more suitable, I shall refrain from saying what I should say to this sock puppet.
I could help, however as I was only ever "Just a marine" (I think you'll find we have Royal Marines, and have done for some time.) I doubt I'd be able to provide you with the info your after. You Graduate of playing services.

Have you rung the number for registering your interest in applying?

Wait until you have taken the RT before making any firm plans in your head.

I think you need to sit down and find out what training is involved in becoming 'just' a Royal Marine and in what sequence it is carried out. Perhaps you might even surprise yourself regarding the AACC 8-O

STC would seem to be the way ahead for a young thruster like you. Use the search function. It's all there for you.
