October Selection - RMR Scotland

Discussion in 'RMR' started by oldspice, May 7, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. The next selection for Scotland and N.Ireland is the weekend of 9th to 11th October 2009.

    It will be held at HQ RMR Scotland in Glasgow.
    Your first point of contact really needs to be your local Armed Forces Careers Office ( AFCO).

    Part of the application process, on completion of medical etc at the AFCO, will be an invitation to attend a presentation at your local RMR Detachment and the opportunity to join Holding Troop.

    *Please note that Holding Troop opportunities may differ in various RMR Units. The following information is specific to Glasgow Detachment of RMR Scotland.

    What is Holding Troop?

    Attending training at your RMR Detachment, one evening per week, which is geared towards prepping you to pass the Selection Weekend. You should find a progressive mix of circuit training and running and regular RMFA and BFT checks.

    Bit of downtime as well at end of the evenings training in the Spean Bridge Club ( Junior Ranks Mess) when you can enjoy a few beers, listen to dits from the lads just back from Afghanistan and also a chance to meet other potential recruits and arrange further training (phys) outside Holding Troop sessions.

  2. Further to the post from Old spice, I would suggest that the sooner interests are noted at the Afco's the better, the sooner you can get to the individual detachments, and you can be fully prepared for the selection weekend.

  7. RMR Scotland - Selection Weekend feb 2012

    Selection Weekend

    The next selection weekend has been moved to the weekend of 18th/19th February 2012. Joining instructions will be sent out to those approved to attend. Be prepared to travel to RMR Scotland HQ on the Friday evening ready for an early morning start on the Saturday.

    Holding Troop

    Holding Troop mid-week sessions and full weekends are now on the program for the tail end of 2011. Weekends will be a mix of gym circuits, outdoor phys (BPT) and an introduction to phase 1 training. HT is an opportunity to further prepare for a successful selection weekend as well as gain an insight to the forthcoming recruit training program.

    Holding Troop is not compulsary but positive results from previous intakes show it does benefit those who attend.

    AFCO APPLICATION PROCESS
    1. Contact the AFCO. They invite you initially to drop in between 09.00hrs and 17.00hrs for an informal chat.
    2. Formally start the application process and keep on top of it until you have dates for Holding Troop and/or your Selection Weekend.
    Whilst the application is in process keep up your phys with focus on the 3 mile run and RMFA.
