BRNC Intake- May 2021

JC-OX

Hello all,

Recently, I passed my vAIB for Warfare and I've been given 10th May 2021 as my intake date. I don't see any other threads about this date, so thought id start one to make some connections. Who else is due on the May 21 intake?

Also, does anyone have any advice on the kind of kit I should take / things I should prepare for?

P.S. if anyone has questions regarding the vAIB and what to expect (or anything else) drop me a message!

Prepare for a hectic learning period. Prepare to meet a lot of strangers with whom you will bond into a team.
As regards the kit you will receive instructions prior to joining. If you cant wait trawl this forum via the search box and you will find it has been discussed already although given the current situation(re Covid) there may be changes.

Hi JC-OX

Congratulations, I am also going warfare Officer, but at the early stages (Virtual AFCO interview next week), can I ask how long your application took, time for each stage etc?

Following my reply to your post about BRNC, I am sure a kit list will be provided nearer the time however I found an old 2013 handbook on the internet which includes all you need to know about Dartmouth, shouldn't be too outdated.

Thanks

Hello! Also have received my date as 10th May 2021. I believe we’ll receive full joining instructions by the end of March which should be plenty of time to get everything sorted! I’m excited and also hopeful that the training can go ahead as normally as can be expected given the current circumstances!

Hi All,

i am in the process of becoming an officer - currently already serving - I was wondering whether had any other material they could share regarding AIB & BRNC?
 
Rather unnerving to realise that this is precisely 50 years after my own entry pitched up at BRNC. It seems like only yesterday (well, perhaps last week).

Anyone else only had AIB recently and already being selected? Bit strange they haven't been doing the traditional selection boards in like march.

Out of interest, for those who've been selected for May, how long was the wait between passing AIB and receiving the letter/portal invite? I passed my vAIB a few weeks ago and was expecting to find out in March, but am now waiting anxiously! Thanks in advance.

I had my AIB on a Monday and got the portal invite by the Friday, so not even a week.

The same for me. Within 7 days.

How long was the whole process from application to vAIB?
For me it was 4 years from when I entered the careers office. Most of that was medical and then covid extended led to cancelled AIB too. But from medical completed to my first AIB date was only 6 months

Oh okay, 6 months is not too bad. What role will you be joining as?
 
Hello all,

I've been selected for 10th May as well (warfare), I found out within a week regarding selection. I'm also under the impression the intake will have a video call sometime in April!

Glad to hear you got selected! Just wondering but where did you hear about the video call as I never heard anything like that?

Congrats to all who have had BRNC invitations. Have any aircrew candidates that had their vAIB recently heard anything/ know when the aircrew FSB is?
