    Selection Interviews normally last 45 minutes to an hour, they normally occur within 2-4 weeks of passing the PJFT.

    The wait to join the service depends on the branch you wish to join, the number of people required & the number of people who have already passed selection. Entries for certain branches are limited to one a year, but there are people starting Initial Naval Training at HMS Raleigh throughout the year. at a rate averaging over 100 a month.

    Some branches have a waiting time to join from as little as 10 months from passing the recruiting test to as much as 5 years.

    With them giving an interview within 2-4 weeks after PJFT should that be a sign of getting a start date this year, would seem bit pointless them making poeple have medicals, PJFT and interviews if they will get a start date in 2-5 years time?

    It may seem that way, but you'd be even more hacked-off if you waited 5 years & then failed the medical or were found unsuitable at interview.

    If unsure of the expected waiting time relevant to you, just give your AFCO a ring - you may well have a start date sooner than anticipated, but only they can give definitive guidance.

    Best of luck.

    I sat my RT in April 2010, and did my fitness test, medical & interview all on the same day in May or June (can't remember which one). I have now done 2 fitness tests since applying and have another one at the end of the month. It depends on your afco, and also the wait times as ninja stated.

    I was told 18 months when I first applied. It went up by the time I'd finished the process.
