The focus of training to be a PMC lies in proving that you can hold your own and work with a military area team. Many people who undertake the movement have already been in the military and might quickly learn that they don't know everything they need to be a private military contractor. Your training will have explored how to handle various situations and be a team player when faced with threats. Training to be a PMC, especially when completing a WPS program, is often more than just a training course. If you're you're ending the practice with a contractor, you are likely also being vetted at the same time. If you don't make it, there won't be a job for you at the end. Training can vary between companies, but you'll have to complete it, even if you've already put in the effort on a separate course.
