The French Foreign Legion preselection center of Aubagne is one of the two preselection centers of the Legion. The Aubagne center, based at Quartier Vienot (headquarters of the Legion), serves multiple role. It recruits new candidats, runs an initial candidate selection and operates the crucial selection process of the Foreign Legion. In Aubagne, any candidat-volunteer wanting to serve in the Legion has to pass that crucial selection process and its required tests (psycho-tests, sports tests, medical tests).
Once you are allowed to be enlisted, free accommodation, free food and free clothing are immediately provided to you by the Legion.
The center of Aubagne runs also several affiliated information offices (smaller recruiting centers) based in various towns, in which a new candidat/volunteer can be also enlisted in the Legion:
If a candidat/volunteer has chosen to enlist himself in the Legion in one of these information offices (smaller recruiting centers), he is immediately provided with free accommodation, free food and free clothing, just as in Aubagne or Paris. New candidats/volunteers enlisted in these centers will pass an initial interview and would be lodged there. Within 1-7 days, they are sent with a free train ticket to Aubagne, to join the main selection process.
