AET & ACH Basic info for new joiners

Jaymo1406

Hey Chieftiff, I've just been reading back along this forum and getting a lot of useful information regarding the training, as I've been given a start date of the 26th July 2009.

I am hoping you are still available to answer more questions relating to say a general working week being an AET, both during training and after training, where can you be based once qualified and how easy is it to continue taking more qualifications once your initial qualifications have been passed.

I do have many more questions if anybody is able to help, as I currently live up north with the missus, we have lots of questions about how life is going to be for us both as of July.

Any help would be appreciated.
 
hey i am on my final few stages of the application to join, i passed my phyiscal and i go to acquiant course next week and pending a positive review from the doc over my asthma i shud be going in july (so my afco says). I really cant wait to join and have already meet so many amazing people thro things that the navy sent us on such as hms Illustrious. I have always wanted to join a force and come from a strong military background but will be the first to join the Navy.
 
I applied in January 2008
RT test 17th June
Interview and Medical 23rd June
Pjft 29th June
Letter with Start date 9th September
Hms Raleigh 14 March 2010

I make that 15 months from handing my form in till raleigh, and 9 months from RT till Raleigh.

Another take.. I applied in Feb 2009 for AET, had my medical and RT in April, had my interview in May and have got a start date of November 2009, so 9 months for me.

lol...what the hell??? how can there be such a big difference in the waiting times??? Is it possible, if all is going well....that you can ask for the process to be slowed down or your date to be postponed??

Hmm, I can't see it, but like I said i've got no idea of how the process works.

It's because i am a rejoiner, had to wait for all previous medical documents etc, that took untill May 2009 so i had 4 months with nothing happening at all!!
