Hey all, after passing AIB (Deck Cadet) at the end of April it was suggested that I'd be attending BRNC in October, and possibly May (this month). However, I was emailed by recruiting and informed that I would not be starting until May of next year (2016), and when I received my provisional offer it gave my start date as June 16th 2016. I have been advised that BRNC are changing course dates, and that they have over recruited this year, hence the start date. Now this isn't really an issue, since I have a job abroad sorted for this coming year, but I was surprised to find that communications and engineering cadets on my AIB have been starting as early as this month, whilst deckies are presumably being put off for the forseeable future. Is this normal? I find it hard to believe that the RFA have overrecruited this much!
