ROYAL MARINES OFFICER: FIT TO COMMAND [Main Title]
Film focusing on the training all officer cadets must pass to become a Royal Marines officer.
On their arrival at Lympstone station, the cadets are classed as Young Officers and are initially tested in a three day Potential Officers course (POC). Those who pass the course, the Admiralty interview board, medical inspection and the final selection board can start training. In addition to their initial fitness training, Young Officers are taught basic troop command whilst they train, which leads to specialists training in areas such as telecommunications and helicopters. The final 30 mile Commando course on Dartmoor must be completed in less than seven hours, as opposed to the eight hours allowed for Royal Marine Commandoes. Within ten minutes of completing the course, their green berets are presented by the Commanding Officer and they are fully qualified Royal Marines Officers.
