Not strictly true TattooDog - CW classes are alive and well at other establishments and prove valuable in assessing motivation and application.TattooDog said:Bear in mind that the Psychometric tests are only a small part of the AIB, you also need to come up with examples where you have displayed potential to become an officer and to show good leadership in the practical tasks - and I don't mean just shouting at the other team members :wink:
The format of the AIB has indeed changed recently; the current affairs bit is gone and the board will grill you on why you think you should be an officer and to provide examples of potential (see my first paragraph). However, you will still do the planning task so brushing up on Speed Time Distance (STD) equations may be useful (Not to be confused with other types of STDs 8O ). Another tip - you will do your RNFT at the AIB and how well you do is an indication of motivation, so you will help yourself if you do more than just pass it.
Formal CW classes have now gone as it became obvious that they were just "coaching" sessions and candidates were turning up spouting the stock phrases but not being able to demonstrate potential.
The Base Education Officers will, however, see you on a one-to-one basis to discuss your preparation as a personal development kind of thing.
DNR issued a directive to the Fleet last Easter that all formal classes should cease.fido said:Not strictly true TattooDog - CW classes are alive and well at other establishments and prove valuable in assessing motivation and application.
