Infomercial armed forces of the philippines reserve command

The Armed Forces of the Philippines Reserve Command, known officially as the AFP RESCOM or RESCOM, (Filipino: Pangasiwaan ng Panlaang Kawal ng Hukbong Sandatahang Lakas ng Pilipinas) is one the Armed Forces of the Philippines' Major Support Commands created for the sole purpose of Reserve Force management, procurement, and organization.



Training is the major task handled by AFPRESCOM. Its primary modes of enlisting and commissioning reservists are the Reserve Officer Military Training (ROMOT); Military Orientation Training Course (MOTC) and the Basic Citizens Military Training (BCMT). Graduates are given enlisted ranks based on reciprocity of their civilian experience in the military environment.

Reserve officers are commissioned based on Armed Forces of the Philippines policy on (direct) commissionship in the reserve force known as Circular 30. Those who are commissioned through this source subsequently undergo an officer orientation program. Many officers in AFPRESCOM are licensed physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, teachers, lawyers and chaplains. Some are directly commissioned as Lieutenant Colonels through the commissioning program of National Defense College of the Philippines as graduates of the Masters in National Security Administration.

Other than time-in-grade and merit promotions, rank adjustments are authorized depending on civilian qualifications.
