The Candidate Preparation Course (CPC) is a three-day course at Commando Training Centre Royal Marines (CTCRM) in Lympstone.


This is the final ‘pass or fail’ pre-requisite you must complete before heading down to embark on your 36 week (including 4 week ROP) journey to become a Royal Marines Commando.


We want to give you the greatest chances of success at this stage and therefore have come up with our own practice CPC run through you can complete prior to the day of the race; giving you a greater understanding into what will be expected of you on your CPC and boosting your confidence in knowing you have already completed a run through beforehand!


If you are nervous about the CPC and want to massively increase your likelihood of passing, then this is a must for you.
