  6. Hi,

    I work in Recruiting, the current waiting times for joining the RM's is about 2/3 months from putting in an application. The potential Royal Marines course take place every week and then they enter approx 4 to 6 weeks later.

    We can adapted the process to move it as quickly as he wants.

    Hope that answers your question
