AIB Service Knowledge

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by NogginTheNog, Oct 17, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've heard that the level of Service Knowledge now required for AIB has got even higher. As Service Knowledge and fitness seem to be the two aspects that I can really prepare for does anyone have any good suggestions where I might find a a lot of the relevant service knowledge all in one place ? The offical RN website seems to have a lot of broken links and is a bit incomplete.
  2. Welcome to Rum Ration, Noggin The Nog.

    Are you reading Navy News regularly?

    Which Officer role are you applying for, by the way?
  3. Hi Soleil,
    Yes Ive subscribed to the Navy News and check the websites etc as well as visiting the various museums, so much of the info seems to be out of date. Ive gone down the Submariner Warfare route but I have been advised to expect detailed questions on all aspects of the Service.

    If anything it's probably easier as there is a computer based multiple choice service knowledge assessment.

    As ever, you still need to be able to identify types of ship, submarine, aircraft, weapons & radar. Likewise, a knowledge of all major components of the Royal Marines.
  5. The service knowledge (motivation) requirement hasn't changed for the interview you will do with your ACLO or at AIB. As NS says, the AIB one is computer based, and will have questions on surface fleet, submarines, Fleet Air Arm, Royal Marines and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. You just need to research your chosen job, as you would for any future employer.
  6. Plus there are still some knowledge questions during the interview, including the (in)famous ship recognition question.
  7. You will also be asked about your training pipeline (BRNC and specialist) along with questions on current RN/RM deployments. This is all a test of your motivation (to find the information).
