Royal marine commando waiting times currently?

Hello, I’ve recently applied to join the Royal Marines as a commando, was just wondering if any one could let me know how long the process will take to start training. I know the timing can be different for everyone just curious to see if anyone has gone through the process recently and could give me a realistic idea.

Update (13/09/21):

Had a call from my local AFCO today, due to my grades from school I am able to skip the recruit test, and they have booked me in for my interview this week.

Problem is!! People, (you), come here asking for answers. When they are not forthcoming they disappear!! (Understandably).

However, no-one Ever EVER comes back after going through the training process and offers that advice for folk like yourself.

One great perpetuating pit of unhelpfulness!!!!

Best advice - ask your AFCO. I would guess they will at least give you an answer!!!!

yeah that’s understandable, I’ll bear it in mind and head back over here when I do get to training and post on here how long it takes so people can find the answers.

Going to give them a call and see what they are saying about it. Thanks for the help
