I do not remember who posted this for my web site:I'm curious on what is the selection and training for the GCP? As they are in the second circle, I assume its not as rigorous as the 1er RPIMa or Commando Hurbert.
GCP selection takes place in each airborne regiment having a GCP team. And yes, you're right, they belong to what is called le deuxième cercle of the Special Forces. Their missions are more tactic than strategic. They will first and foremost work for the regiment they belong to (pathfinder missions, recce, etc.) but can also serve in a support role if need be to the primary Spec Ops units (1er RPIMa, as you said, or CPA10, CPA20, etc.).I'm curious on what is the selection and training for the GCP? As they are in the second circle, I assume it's not as rigorous as the 1er RPIMa or Commando Hubert.
You have to first get into the French Foreign Legion, do well in basic instruction, choose the 2Â° REP and do well when you get there. After all that, then maybe (just maybe) after a few years of service, you'll have a chance to apply for GCP selection (and they don't take everyone who applies).What is GCP and how do i get into it?
