1.  the training is well pretty long for the reservist coz you only have weekends to train. Unlike the regular force who trains everyday.  For the regular force it takes about 6-8 months for the Marine Basic Course for enlisted and for the Marine Officer Basic Course.

2.  As far i know you will be "issued" i set of BDA, Boots, LBE, packs and whatever they can issue you within  the budget allocated for an individual.

3.  You have to go through the Instructor Course usually given only to the regular force personnel. 

4.  As reservist no patrolling will be conducted.  Reservist participates in CMO's and Joint exercises and Disaster relief operations.

Sir if you are not eligible for commissionship in the reserve force under the technical branch, you will have to undergo MS-43 also known as Probationary Officer Training Course (POTC). As a prerequisite of this course, you have to finish advanced ROTC meaning you must have enrolled and received grades and special orders of from your MS/AS/NS-1, 2, 31, 32, 41, and 42.

1. how can you  join the POTC do you need to enroll in an advance ROTC course?

2. what if you graduate as a reservist not in ROTC can you still enroll in an advance ROTC?

3.does it have a maximum age in joining advance ROTC?

4. if you finish all the said courses do you automaticaly have a rank of a lieutenant?

Yes sir you need to enroll those subjects in a college. Basic ROTC is two semesters, you enroll MS-1 for the 1st sem, and MS-2 for the 2nd sem. Advance ROTC is four semesters, so you enrol MS-31, 32, 41, and 42 respectively. After finishing 6 semesters of ROTC, you then take MS-43 (Probationary Officer Training Course) which is 3 months. After which, you are commissioned as a 2LT in the reserve force.

If you are not qualified under Circular 30 to be commissioned and you receive your enlisted AFPSN through other means outside ROTC (UADT, BCMT, Technical Br, etc) you need to go through ROTC to be a commissioned officer in the reserve force.

If you want to be in the active service and you are not an ROTC graduate, you can join the OCS (Army), PAFROPP (Air Force), or NOCC (Navy). The course duration is 18 months, after which you are commissioned as a 2LT in the regular force.

thank you for the information sir....  regarding the OCS mukhang matanda na yata ako diyan hindi na ako qualified im already 32 yrs old na, do you think some school's or colleges would accept na ROTC lang ang i eenrol ko?  and do you think they would accept me even im already in my 30's?

Merong solution, if you are a college graduate with ROTC, run for office kahit Barangay Kagawad. You could be commissioned. Age limit is up to 65 years old  :eyes:

Get a professional degree license or Masteral course and apply for commissionship, age limit is up to 35 - 45. If you're 32, you still got 3 years kung binaba nga sa 35 years old for Reserve Commission. If not, still have a long way to go.
