Becoming a PTI

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by lethal lady, Oct 19, 2014.

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. Hey guys, I been doing some research about being a PTI and it is definitely something I'm intrested in. What would be the best way to get into it and when do I tell them now? Phase 1 or phase 2? Or once I have completed basic training? I start phase one 1st Feb 2015 so don't want to do something that will push ny date back as I have been waiting a long time.
  2. PTI in the RN is a sideways entry branch, that is to say you need to be recommended for promotion to LH (not necessarily in your original branch) before you can be selected.

    You need to be an AB1 in your source branch before formally applying, however, expressing an interest once you are in your first full job can't harm you. Remember, consistency of dedication is important, as is doing very well on your PTI aptitude once you are in that position.

  3. Oh so you don't apply you have to be recommended?

    The other tip is to make sure you've chosen a job you feel suited toward as there is categorically no guarantee you'll become a PTI.
  5. Yeah I have lol just belive I would enjoy being a PTI more but we will see what the future brings lol
  6. What are you joining as lethal lady?
  7. Warfare specialist
  8. Well I suppose that is a Seaman branch in old money.
    PTIs were always recruited from the Seaman branch in my day.
  9. I know at least 3 AEMs that donned the tracksuit of pain and power

  10. If i did get the job how long would the transfer take after passing the 28 week course?
  11. How good are you? I would anticipate not less than 2 - 3 years (probably).
  12. Personally think I'm quite good got good knowledge of it all aswell. That's not too bad then thank you.
  13. You just have to shout "To the wallbars...go" with the "go" in a high pitched voice and you've cracked it ;)
  14. Of being a Warfare Specialist?

    Or do you mean how long would it take to become a PTI post-PTI course? If the latter, you'll become an LPT the day you pass course. You'll then go straight to your first assignment as a PTI.
  15. No a pti like the anatomy and nutrition ect. Oh haha that's even better then. I guess I will see how I like being a WS first cause may really enjoy that and not want to change.
  16. Yeah, I wouldn't get ahead of yourself. You have at least several years service ahead as a WS before any chance of becoming a PTI.
  17. And "With a jump to the Ho....Go"
  18. Really? So it would be a long wait till I could even consider it then?
  19. Yes, you need to be passed for killick WS
