    PTRR for OCS Candidates

    All,

    My understanding is that after OCS, SEAL Officer Candidates report to Naval Special Warfare Command in Coronado. Candidates are then placed in PTRR (Physical Training Rehabilitation and Remediation), which can last anywhere from 2 - 6 months before classing up. Could someone describe what PTRR entails? Specifically, is this really 2-6 months of pure PT time, or are there administrative and/or other “jobs” performed during this time while waiting to class up? Is the PT structured, individual, etc.? Also, is the 2-6 month wait time still an accurate estimate?

    Thanks,

    Do any Admins have any thoughts on this?

    Thanks,
    PTRR is not 6 months, it's designed for 2 things; prepare you for First phase to include BO (basic orientation) and to allow students a holding area between any of the phases. If you are rolled for any reason you wait your next class in PTRR. It's as long as your particular case makes it.. If you arrive just after the class starts in Nov you will most likely not start until the first week in Feb which is a break time for the school house.

    If you are injured and recovering there will be rehab to do with medical but there is no individual pt, PTRR instructors will run pt for all students. I will not be giving the PTRR schedule.

    When officers check into BUDS they will be in PTRR until about the last week of NSW Prep at which time they will fly to RTC to join their class and fly back to BUDS to begin class. As to what administrative jobs will you perform while you wait for class, does it matter?

    Re: PTRR for OCS Candidates

    Thanks for the response. As to what admin jobs are performed, no, it doesn’t matter. The question was really aimed at whether or not this time was used purely for PT, or if PT would have to be planned around a “full time” job at NSW.

    Rumors are that it’s tough to come out of OCS in the same shape that candidates enter and I was just trying to get a feel for how much time on the other end of OCS is afforded to get back into top shape as OCS graduates do not attend BUD/S Prep for the same duration as those coming out of RTC. Thanks again.

    What everyone needs to remember about Prep is frankly it’s a luxury. It’s only been around for a few years, where many of us showed up on a Friday and started training the next Monday we are very much still a "self select" community. When you arrive at BUDS you are either an officer or enlisted, no one will know any difference between ROTC, Academy, OCS, or Lateral transfer from the fleet.

    Train hard and plan to start training the first day you arrive-there won’t be additional training time afforded to you according to which education route you chose.

    Best of Luck
