Pass The PRMC – 2019 Update

Pass the PRMC

Today is the launch of the new updated version of my Pass the PRMC ebook. After so many positive messages from people who have utilised the advice and training programme since its first release, it has remained pretty much untouched for the last couple of years. However, having spoken to the PTI Corporal last responsible for running the PRMC and looking at some of the reasons a couple of people have failed, I decided an update was on the cards.

Why this book?

Pass the PRMC is the best selling and most complete guide to getting a PRMC pass available. In fact, I only wrote it because none of the available PRMC guides were, in my opinion, up to the task. The problem with most of them is that they aren’t written by Royal Marines PTIs. How can you write about something and construct a credible training programme if you’ve never been taught how to deliver that type of training? It’s like deciding to be a school teacher straight off the back of your GCSEs. Just because you have been taught and passed, doesn’t mean you can now teach. You must go through teacher training to do that. Being on the receiving end of a military course does not give someone in-depth knowledge on how to instruct and pass said course. That’s why the Royal Marines PT branch exists: to teach Royal Marines how to construct and deliver physical training in a safe way that ensures results, and that’s the foundation that Pass the PRMC is built on.

Now with even more expert advice

I haven’t removed anything. I’ve added a few extra bits and pieces of advice, as well as a couple more training evolutions to ensure the areas a few people have failed on won’t catch you out. Whether you are preparing for PRMC or POC, another military force (British or foreign) or are a civilian who is wanting to test themselves physically, Pass the PRMC has something for you. For those attempting to join the Marines (PRMC or POC) it has all my tips and advice for the course, do’s, don’ts, what to take, what not to wear etc. This information is also very useful for those attempting other military courses.

For anyone and everyone, there is a full 8-week training programme to get you to a certain point of fitness. This doesn’t mean everyone will be PRMC/POC ready within 8 weeks. It depends on your start point. Some people will be, some people will need to go around again. But that’s the beauty of the programme, you can just cycle around again for another 8weeks. It will make you a better runner, a better swimmer and of course get you up to scratch with press-ups, pull-ups and sit-ups.

Endorsed by those that know

I am lucky enough to have had a few Royal Marines colleagues endorse Pass the PRMC. A good friend from training, former Royal Marines Commando Mountain Leader Jon White. The twin brother of a Royal Marines I was on my PT1s course with, former Royal Marines Sniper Aldo Kane. Nick Goldsmith, a former Royal Marines Commando who founded Hidden Valley Bushcraft, and Jason “Foxy” Fox, former Royal Marines Commando, UKSF operator and instructor on SAS: Who Dares Wins.

It means so much to have these guys put their name to something I put together to help others follow in our footsteps. We all loved our time in the Royal Marines and believe it has been instrumental in our lives. Pass the PRMC was put together to help you achieve what we did; that was the motivation behind writing it and that’s part of the reason why it has done so well.

Now go get your pass

That’s all there is to say, really. It’s available now – so grab your copy and start your journey to earning a pass at the world famous Potential Royal Marines Course.
